This is a good item as a feature request - I was thinking that I needed to be able to sort by inquiries by the tags that they have. You could create a tag that says "declined" and then if we submit a feature request for sorting and filtering by tags, we might have a powerful feature!

RE: Mark an inquiry declined?
RE: adding a webcam to website
Adding to the website is easy once you know the URL that hosts it (see my website) - you can just use HMTL with an iFrame:
Here is mine:
<div class="entry-content"> <p><strong></strong><br /> <iframe src="http://g1.ipcamlive.com/player/player.php?alias=59b06d035419c&autoplay=true" width="800px" height="450px" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe> </p> </div>
If you're setting up your own cam, you'll have to find the web address for it to insert.
Automatically update rates on non-integrated listings?
Has anyone found a way to automate or even manually transmit updated rates from MyVR to other listing sites that are not on integrated listing sites?
I have some listings with FloridaRentals.com, which is a good lead source for me, but I have Beyond Pricing which changes my rates daily and prices them daily. I can't update all of my properties with 365 new rates every day.
My prospective guests have been complaining that my rates are not accurate on a regular basis.
I'd like to find a way that I can push rates to them - but don't know where to begin for help...
Has anyone done this?
RE: Review Requests for Homeaway and AirBNB integrated listings
@Dave-Both - whether they do or not, I always prefer to send my request directly as part of my post-stay process. I get far more responses than they do, and I usually know in advance what they are going to say - often because I give it to them (re-feeding their own comments to me) in a format to just cut and paste
You can set up your own automated email with the review link using a Stay email.
RE: Calendar sharing and a question
@John-Klein - Whenever I have a new source to "feed" with my calendar, I set up a unique export channel for it. If it needs the turn times, as this one would for you, I use the advance settings to turn those on:
Be sure to specify your timezone too.
Does that help? I use iCal instead of google calendar but it works smoothly for me there.
RE: Refundable Security Deposit
- you have no way to verify that the guest has received it - only that Stripe has sent it. If you log directly into Stripe, you can search under payments for the customer name. The drop down will show you the transactions for that name.
When you click on the transaction for the original payment, you can see how much of that payment was refunded.
If you'd like to send an email receipt to your customer to document the refund, scroll down to the connections area:
Click on Send Receipt, and in the pop up window, enter the email address to receive the receipt.
Hope that helps!
What should I do if I accidentally mark an inquiry as spam? (or deleted)
I recently made this mistake with a booking request, which gave me quite a scare. But with a little digging I found this solution so I thought I'd share it here.
It's easy to mark an inquiry as spam - if it truly IS spam. Marking it as spam also moves it to the archives.
If this happens, all you have to do is to use the search function to search for the name - it will still be found:
Select the marked inquiry, and then return to the options menu. Select the option to remove the spam filter, and it will also unarchive the message thread.
Voila - you're back in business
Use a similar technique to retrieve a deleted thread. Search for the thread, select it, and then archive it. Then search again, and unarchive it.
Hope that helps!
