how to embed a booking calendar
Once you have set up your inventory and rates in the system, next you will configure and add the booking calendar to your website. We understand your webpage is the pillar of your business and we know how much you care about it. WebReserv made the calendar integration straighforward. It is a simple process that doesn’t involve a technical background to achieve and the result looks great. In the following tutorial we will explain how it works.
Access the Booking Calendar
To access the booking calendar features in your WebReserv account, click on the Website tab in top menu. This will default to the Booking Calendar page.
On this page, you can customize, preview, and access the HTML code needed to add the calendar to your site.
The calendar options in this section allows you to customize the look of the booking calendar. See custom options below.
- Availability/Rate Grid
Booking calendar Version 2.0 and the Embedded style option are the most popular choices and the default options. When the user views the calendar, they will stay on your website, and will see the booking calendar inside your website.
The Booking Calendar gives you a few search options to choose from: No Search, Start/end date, No. Nights, No. Days. No Search is the default option and customers will see the listing of your products as the first view of the booking calendar. Choosing another search option will show the search as the first view of the booking calendar, see examples below.
This option, if set to yes, will allow customers to see a view of all your inventory and rates for a week at a time. On the first page of the booking calendar, your customers can click on “View Availability and Rates” button to see the grid view. Customers can also choose a date and see availability for that week.
See example below:
The Booking Calendar comes with many options for color themes. Choose one from the list or create your own. To learn about customizing the colors, see the section on Defining styles and colors. The default color theme looks like this:
But you can select other themes like the following:
After selecting the options that you want, click the Preview button and a preview will be shown on the right side of the screen. If necessary, you can change the options and click Preview again to see how different settings affect the booking calendar.
When you are done customizing the booking calendar, copy the HTML code from the section 4 – Copy HTML code, and paste the HTML code into your website editor at the place where you want the calendar.
Congratulations!!! – You have now completed the booking calendar customization and setup process.
