Booking Calendar Integration
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!
A few years ago we published a tutorial to explain how to integrate your WebReserv online booking system to your Facebook page. Back then, it was necessary to use a third party app to do the integration. Today Facebook is able to provide a very good solution that will make that integration much easier. In the following article we will describe how.

If you are new to WebReserv, and are working on setting up your account, you may be asking yourself a few key questions.
How complicated is the calendar integration? How much can I customize the calendar to match my web design? Should I embed the calendar or make it show in a new tab? Should I add it to an existing page or should I create a new one? These are important questions, and very appropriate to consider.
After all, your webpage is the pillar of your business, and you need to make sure the booking calendar meshes well with the design. First of all, if you are unsure on how to integrate the calendar into your website, we recommend you review our documentation, How to integrate the booking calendar to your webpage and Customizing the Booking Calendar for further customization needs. In addition to these helpful guides, we also believe that, as the saying goes, “a picture is worth a thousand words”. So, we would like to share with you some of the best integrations of 2014. Have a look and get inspired!
