I’ve recently seen a tool on AirBnb for people considering listing with them.
No idea how accurate it is. If you use their pricing tools, they seem to push more toward occupancy rates than revenue generation.
@chloe-verner GOOD POINT! But to clarify, that only works as long as you’re using the owner’s portal module and so have those fields populated. There are some users that don’t use that module, but they can still use the send to third party option.
@adam Have you tried looking for the Listing’s Property Keys?
Back in our WordPress website days, we used the Booking Widget and Calendar Widget which required Property Keys. Guessing those will be the same in the MyVR API.
If I recall correctly, you should be able to download a List of Property Keys from either of those Apps.
Think you will have a tough time doing that from a third party software on most channels, as you are not provided with the guests actual e-mail address.
Jenny is correct, you will wish to create some Templates in the Setup section.
Hey @Darren-Morgan - I caught your post about Xero in another community post, so it looks like you’re exploring systems that may integrate with MyVR already, however, I wanted to also mention the possibility of using Zapier. Have you explored that as an option? It syncs to several other accounting systems (Quickbooks & Xero included) & serves as a build-your-own connection to what you may specifically be looking for.
This would get you as far as creating custom reports on the cadence that you want, but you would still need to manually post into the Owner’s Portal (unless you figured that part out through the API).
I encourage you to post this scenario into a feature request so our eng team can evaluate your use case.
Hey @Ann-Karako - You may have already figured this one out already, but I want to confirm that generally owner-initiated reservations function the same as any direct-booking put into MyVR.
The only real difference is that you have the choice as the PM to allow the owners to book their property at their sole discretion, or require approval by you. This setting is located in Settings > Back Office > Owner Management.
Otherwise, all message automations will flow through this reservation as they would any other reservation!
@gary-swarberg - are you also cancelling the reservation? If so, when you choose to cancel, there will be a switch you can toggle that asks you if you want to refund all payments. If you say yes, it will cancel AND refund the payments.
Thank you for contacting us, I’m happy to help.
You can accomplish this using basic calendar synchronization. Just go to Channels -> Calendar Only -> (Install Basic Calendar Synchronization if needed) -> Open -> New Connection. From there you can set up basic calendar synchronization and the export is specifically what you will want to set up. Once set up, you should have a calendar link (or links) that you can provide to your housekeeper.
