5/13/2019

You can now configure advanced availability settings for your locations. This feature extends the basic availability settings, allowing you to block dates and times, giving you greater control over when you show as available to potential customers.

New
  1. A new availability calendar will show your pending and accepted requests, as well as days that you have blocked
  2. Interact with the calendar to block your booked or unavailable dates. Dates can be blocked individually or by date range

  4. Edit or delete existing blocked date records
  5. Using the new availability calendar you can override any basic availability configuration that is set as Available. You can do this by blocking a date that would otherwise show you as available. For example, if you are Available on Sunday's but you blocked a specific Sunday in June, then you would not be shown as available on that Sunday
If you submitted blocked dates using our old process they have been migrated for you. You can find these records in your availability settings.

3/19/2019

We've (finally) released the booking request expiration process. This process took longer than expected, but the extra time allowed us to add functionality that we think will benefit both vendors and customers. Learn more about the new response period and how to respond to a booking request.

New
  1. A process that will automatically remind, extend and expire a pending booking request
  2. A reminder email will be sent if a response has not been received after 12 hours
