Keeping your calendar up-to-date is an important part of managing your business on Blocking the dates in which you are unavailable will help you receive only requests that you can accept. The more requests you accept, the better your acceptance rate will be - And the better your acceptance rate, the higher the likelihood of your company being booked more often.

How The Calendar Works

Using the calendar you can specify days and times that you are fully booked or otherwise unavailable. This can be done by blocking part of a day or a full day. You can block a single date or many dates in a date range.

When a customer searches for a date that you've fully blocked:

Your company will be shown as unavailable and cannot be booked.

When a customer searches for a date that you've partially blocked:

Your company will be shown as available but the arrival window options will not include any times that you have blocked. A partially blocked date occurs when you block a time range instead of a full day.

The Availability Calendar

  1. All pending and accepted booking requests

  3. Dates that you specifically used HOO Override to override your hours of operation settings
