Recording of Direct Reservation

Just received an email from Booking.com about removing the feature with allows us to record direct reservations on the Extranet and Pulse Diaries. I found this very helpful to keep all my bookings on one diary. 

Does anyone know why this feature is to be removed soon???? Alos, if anyone is using a Channel Manager, (we currently use MyAllocator), does anyone know any which a diary feature with all the reservations in one place????

 

Thank you

Hi Bhavesh

 

erm doesn't the channel manager have a calendar view and a booking view?

 

wouldn't that be the same thing?

 

I was looking at Beds24 recently it had that.

 


Kind Regards

This has us now scrabbling around looking for a 3rd party solution at VERY short notice to this and is a feature we were happy to pay extra for, It worked perfectly for us. Very disappointed with booking.com for this move. On the plus side if we have to use a new booking engine we will be able to sync with other hotel sites and not rely on booking.com for bookings. Their loss in the end, a foolish move.

To be fair &  clear this is not a BdC issue,

iCal as a sync method is never been reliable by design as its never been real time. 

 

A channel manager has always been a requirement for multiple channel.

 

That is why they were invented.

I do not use multiple channels only Booking.com and direct bookings. of course this is booking.com's fault.

Does anybody have an idea how to manage direct bookings without a channel manager? We have been using only booking.com until now and loved the feature to add direct bookings in the extranet. 

I have found the "BookingButton" but I can not find it anywhere in the AppStore. Anybody knows where to get it? Or have any experience with it?

Thanks
