Hi Time Capsule Retreat

 

When only using one OTA, under calendar, list view, you have a Sync Calendar option.

 

This brings up the setup window.

 

Note :this is only visible if you only have a quantity of 1 room  per room type  setup.


If not create new rooms and reduce the count to 1 each. Then this will be available per room .

 

 

Otherwise a channel manager 3rd party web based app is required.

 



Kind Regards

Erm yes. Like I said down there :

On the room details page, there is one room and it says underneath: 

Occupancy: 4 adults

Number of this type: 1

I think I see now, it only works if one is tied to BC, ie; no channel manager.

no

 

ical sync is only available on BdC if the room count for a room type =1. only.

 

However having said that , it is not automated nor instant, its manual only.

 

THe best solution is to sign up for a free or paid  Channel Manager service.

 

e.g. nobeds versus cloudbeds

Cheers. I don't know what room counts and room types are. I just have a little house.

I was looking at using an outfit called partee to manage checkins and they have an import calendar function. I use freetobook as a channel manager and their ical is dreadful. It just lists dates unavailable. No booking details at all. They tell me that the BC ical works just fine, but in the forums I get the impression that it's worthless.

  • Extranet > Property Menu
  • Room Details
  • You add a room-type and set  how many you have, the common details of said room type.
  • If you set the room type to have a count of 1, then in Calendar Menu, only then will you have new iCAL sync options appear.
  • The moment you increase that room type count to 2 or more it turns off.
  • If you enable a Channel Manager it can pull the BdC Calendar to itself on a schedulle, therfore preventing over bookings if using 2 or more OTAs [BdC & Expedia]

Freetobook is the channel manager which actually creates the bookings on behalf of BC.BC gets rates and availability from them.

I'm going to have to enter the BC bookings by hand. Ah well...
