The New Calendar View

Calendar View is the new version of Rates & Availability Calendar, designed for the purpose of enabling channel manager connected properties to use the same Rate Plans Restrictions as properties using the Hostelworld Inbox, in case these are not supported by their current management system. 

The Calendar View can be found in the Rates & Availability Tab of the Hostelworld Inbox as a new tab, encouraging properties to Try our new calendar. All restrictions are editable in the new calendar, and once applied, they will be carried over to the existing Rates and Availability screen and will be showing online on Hostelworld.com

The next few pages are a step-by-step guide through the Calendar View’s main features.
