The Process

Step 1: Filter properties

To modify only the desired properties, use the filter at the top of the page. Several filters are available, including:

  • Location
  • Neighborhood
  • Number of guests
  • Number of rooms
  • Number of bathrooms
  • And status
  • It is also possible to search by property name

Step 2: Select the desired date to block

Once the filter is set up, you can select the desired dates to block.

  • First, select some boxes on the calendar.
  • Now boxes are pre-selected in blue and a sidebar opens on the right.
  • In the sidebar we see the selected dates displayed.
  • Click on "Block" button.
  • Choose the reason from a selection of 8 possibilities.
  • Add a comment to specify the reason for the block in the "Add a comment" field.
  • You then have three options: - Do Not Release: Never release or unblocked manually – Auto release after: Release the dates after X minute(s), hour(s), day(s) – Auto release at: Release the dates at a specific date and time.
  • Click on Apply to finalize the modification.
  • The dates are now blocked and shown in black.
  • On hover, it is possible to see the different details: – such as who and when the block was made – the blocked period – and the block category.

Step 3: Unblock dates

  • To unblock dates, you need to select the blocked dates.
  • On the sidebar click on the "Unblock" button.
  • And confirm by clicking on the "Apply" button.
