Updating room availability
I'm not au fait with the settings on Booking.com and find some of the instructions difficult to follow. I'm posting in case others can learn from my experience and avoid the same frustrations.
My holiday rental was not available past a certain date. After reading the forums, I realised this was limiting my visibility so I investigated how to change it. First I copied this year's rates to next. Then I checked my availability on the Calendar only to see that the unit was still showing 'sold out'. I could change the availability but had to do it individually, day by slow-refresh day.
I read more Help pages and Forum posts, tried 'Bulk edit' a number of times, but all to no avail.
Eventually, I read a post where someone said how easy it was to make changes on Pulse. So I downloaded it, activated it on my phone and finally I could tap and select months at a time to make the unit available. At last!
One more thing, though, I had to manually sync the calendar again to removed dates that had been booked. But at least it was a workaround.
Now, let those bookings come.
