First, watch this overview on how to use your calendar
There are three different view toggles on your calendar, which we'll walk you through below:
- Time range
- Visible calendars
- Booking information
In the top right corner of your calendar, you'll see "Month", "Week" and "Day." You can click between these options depending on the calendar time range you're interested in viewing. You can zoom out to see the full month of upcoming bookings or drill down to see what you have booked for this coming Saturday.
This view is most helpful to Hosts with more than one listing. You can view all bookings for all listings (property level) or deselect individual listing calendars to view the bookings for a specific listing only (listing level). To the left of your calendar, you'll see the names of your listings with a box on their left. If the box is selected (and a teal color), you'll see any bookings for that listing. To deselect a listing, click on that same box and it will remove that listings bookings from your view.
When you click on the teal bar that shows you have a booking, a pop up will appear with more information. From this view you can see more details about the booking including the Hipcamper's email, phone number, group size, and more.
Successful hosting starts with keeping your calendar as up-to-date as possible. You can block off a single or multiple days on your calendar at once, and have availability be different for different listings.
Adjust bookability of a single day
Start by selecting that day on your calendar. You will then see a pop up displaying your listing(s) and corresponding sites where you can mark as "Bookable" or "Closed". To close an individual site, select the corresponding box to switch it to "Closed".
Adjust bookability of multiple days at once
Click and hold on the first day of your date range and without releasing drag the mouse to the last day of your range. You'll get the same pop up where you can manage the bookability for your selected days for all of your listings.
Adjust bookability of mulitple listings
If you want to adjust the bookability for multiple listings and/or sites at once, click "Change all" at the bottom of the pop up triggered after you've selected your days. If you choose to close all of your sites you will see the days closed off with gray diagonal lines and "All sites closed" in the top right corner of the days. You can learn more about how to mark days as closed, here.
If you have chosen to "only allow booking requests" in the booking options of your Dashboard, you will see pending booking requests on your calendar in addition to confirmed bookings. The pending booking appears in orange. You can click anywhere on the booking and it will take you to the "Messages" tab where you can accept, decline or ask for more information.
