If you receive bookings via your website as well as other booking platforms or use an external reservation system you can export your Lodgify bookings to an external calendar or import reservations and blocked periods into Lodgify via ical. You can also use the ical link to block individual rooms in your calendar whenever you have a booking for the entire property.
Importing will allow you to automatically keep your Lodgify calendar up to date with external calendars that support the .ics format
Example of an ical URL: https://www.airbnb.com/calendar/ical/2790429.ics?s=850a104a80c6c87f19cb5c0e35a97628.
Calendars that support the ical format are for instance Airbnb, VRBO, Wimdu, OnlyApartments and House Trip.
NOTE: The imported information will be visible in the Calendar in light grey. No information will be imported in your Reservations.
NOTE: In case your Channel Mananger is activated a warning will pop up to prevent double import. You can ignore this as long as the Channel Manager is not activated for this property on the same external listing site.
The calendar auto-refreshes every 2h. If you need the import immediately click Synchronize now.

NOTE: Use this ical only to export information to your personal calendar where you need details such as guest names.
If you rent out individual rooms of a holiday house but guests can also book the entire property you need to make sure to avoid double bookings. The solution are internal calendar imports.
Example: If the Holiday house has the rooms Guercino and Poussin, see
You will need to set up the following imports:
To import Guercino to make whole house booking impossible do the following:
NOTE: Don't forget to do the rest of the imports.
To also have external imports in this case you cannot use the Channel Manager. For imports from i.e. Airbnb set up ical imports
