New customization options for iCal integration

Posted on

We recently released an enhancement to the calendar synchronization feature in WebReserv.  You can now customize your iCal URL by rental, tour, or room.  This upgrade will allow you to sync bookings, per product to your chosen calendar site such as Airbnb, VRBO, or Google.  This will make it easier to manage bookings on the various sites you use.

To access the new links in your WebReserv account, go to the Setup →Business Information → Advanced Options.  You’ll see the iCal section under External Calendar Synchronization (iCal, Airbnb, Google, Apple and others).

Here you can select which URL you want to add to your external calendar ⇒ choose All or just for a certain product.  Copy the URL and paste into your other calendars.

Note: Each external calendar integration will have its own steps to add the URL.  See the Help for that calendar for complete instructions.  

In addition, you can further customize the data that is shown on the calendar using keywords from the booking.  Enter your choice of text and keywords in the Title and Body section of the setup, and this information will populate your calendar when a new booking is made in WebReserv.

Once you add the URL to the chosen calendar, then when you receive a booking in WebReserv, it will be shown on the calendar on the day of the booking.  Viola!
