To avoid any double-bookings and to save a lot of time in management, we highly recommend synchronizing your calendars with all platforms where your property is listed.
To do so, WeChalet supports iCal, a file format you can use to sync calendars across multiple platforms like Google Calendar, Apple Calendar, and other booking site calendars like Airbnb, VRBO, or Booking.com.
Please note that currently, only availabilities are synchronized in real-time and you still need to enter your pricing manually on each platform.
The calendar synchronization implementation is done in 2 steps.
STEP 1: HOW TO EXPORT YOUR WECHALET CALENDAR INTO ANOTHER PLATFORM
It's important to follow these calendar synchronization steps for each platform where you list your property.

STEP 2: HOW TO IMPORT THE CALENDAR FROM THE OTHER PLATFORM INTO WECHALET
For the second phase of the import, please follow the following steps:
Go into the other platforms' calendar export section and copy the "Export calendar URL”.
Return to the ''Calendar'' menu of your WeChalet listing.
Click on "Import” and a small window will appear.
In this small window, paste the "URL link of the other platform's calendar" in the bottom cell and enter the "Platform's name" in the top cell. Then click on "Import.”
From now on, all your dates booked on any other platform will automatically be synchronized with your WeChalet calendar and vice versa.
To remove or manually refresh a calendar
Simply go in "Imported calendars" section at the bottom of the calendar page and click "Delete" on the calendar that you want to remove or on "Synchronise" to manually refresh the synchronization.
