How to manage your calendar
How does the calendar work?
Make sure you keep your calendar up-to-date at all times to ensure renters can make bookings for available dates. When you get a booking through Clickstay or Rentalsystems the dates will automatically be blocked off on your calendar, and the dates will be highlighted with a booking summary. You can also import calendars from elsewhere to ensure that your calendar is always kept up-to-date. And of course manually mark dates as unavailable.
We also recommend marking your calendar as "up-to-date" even if you do not have any changes to make to the dates. The date your calendar was last updated appears on the property page and helps reassure renters that you are an active owner.
On the calendar page the following things are available:
- Block off unavailable dates;
- View dates where no price is set;
- See a summary of Clickstay and Rentalsystems bookings;
- Import / export your calendar;
- Mark your calendar as up-to-date.

To block off dates select the start and end date on the calendar and a pop out will show.

Once you are happy with the dates to block off select the "Save" button.
How do I edit unavailable dates?
