I use Hello Sign for rental agreements and check- in codes. It's not integrated with MyVR yet, but I hope it will be in the future. The do have the API functions that should make it possible.

How to run an INSTANT QUOTE for a quick phone call
One of the features I've requested for a future MyVR update is the ability to get a FAST QUOTE for any given property and dates without entering the guests personal information first. I often get phones calls asking me for quotes, and the caller really doesn't want to give out email and phone number (or sometimes even full name) until they hear the quote and know if we're in the same ballpark.
Here is my "quick fix" to generate instant quotes until we get that feature!
First, create a new inquiry named INSTANT QUOTE, and use your own email address. You can skip the phone number if you like since it's optional. You'll always want to keep this inquiry on page one of your INBOX, so depending upon how you use it, you may have to bump it up.
I usually keep this inquiry window open somewhere on my desktop.
Then when you need an instant quote, just select that inquiry, and select the quotes tab.
When you create a new quote, be sure to save it.
Then if the guest decides to share their contact info and have you send them the quote, you can change all the contact info, and send it to them. Then create a new INSTANT QUOTE entry. Be sure to cancel any quotes that don't apply to their inquiry.
If they don't want you to email it, then just cancel the quotes and save the inquiry for the next phone call!
Hope this helps!
RE: How do Tentative Reservations Affect the Calendar?
@Danny-Eiden so if my understanding is correct, a tentative reservation would be virtually transparent to a prospective guest on my website and on HomeAway channels?
RE: Vacation Home Rentals is now Trip Advisor...
No, I only have the VHR flat rate listing. I wasn't going to renew but they explained that I would get Trip Advisor and Flipkey exposure soon too, so I'm trying another year. I may switch to PPB next year if the numbers don't improve.
Vacation Home Rentals is now Trip Advisor...
I have all of my properties listed on VacationHomeRentals.com, but now they have rolled into FlipKey and TripAdvisor as a listing, and I'm confused. I can no longer login, and can't reach a real person for help. In addition, all the inquiries coming in (and there are a fair number) are going to the wrong email address and not to MyVR. They used to go to the other messages section of MyVR, but now they are going to my personal email account.
Is anyone else having this issue - whom did you contact to fix this? HELP!
RE: Post Departure Email - Request Reviews
Here are the templates in case they are helpful"
#1 - automatically sent the day after their departure:
And then here is the follow up:
In the open section above I cut and paste their reply comments from the first email. You don't have to cut everything - I leave out unimportant or very personal notes, but leave the review feedback word for word.
Hope that helps!
How do Tentative Reservations Affect the Calendar?
When I have a tentative reservation, it triggers a "conflict" message on any inquiry that comes in with the same dates. It does allow potential guests to inquire, so I think it shows as available to the guest world (at least it used to last time I checked).
My questions are:
If a guest attempts to book online, will it allow it given there is already a tentative reservation? Assume there is NOT a hold on the quote.
Does this information pass to the integrated channels at all, and if so, would it affect the rankings for your listing?
