    Hi,
    I've seen that only confirmed bookings will sync over externar sources. Is there a way to make "pending payment" or other states appear on syncronization?
    Thanks

    Solved: adding the desired statuses in export.php:

    'post_status'    => [BookingStatuses::STATUS_CONFIRMED, BookingStatuses::STATUS_PENDING_USER],

    I have a small cottage (1 accommodation type) because you can only rent the cottage to one person at a time. How do I link multiple external calendars to 1 accommodation type? I assume I just add in all three external calendars to the accommodation. (See screenshot).

    Also, when the reservations are synced, the contact information are not being synced from external to WordPress site. And it show a payment of $100 which is wrong.

    Lastly, across all 3 external calendars there are 98 bookings, but none are synced successfully.

    Hi,

    Yes, you added external calendars properly. The price and other information is not exported from other platforms so there is applied base price for each booking and some other information is missing. The main purpose of iCal import/export is to avoid overbooking.

    As for the error during importing calendars its says that you try to import form .XLSX file however plugin expects ICAL or ICS file. Could you submit a request so we'll be able to check it out for you?

    Hi, when I copy paste my calendar URL to Booking.com (mydomain.com/?feed=mphb.ics&accommodation_id=123), I have this error message :

    "This is not a valid iCal URL. Please try again."

    How to preceed please ? Thanks !

    Probably there was Coming Soon mode enabled. Let us know if you managed to link iCal import/export.

    iCal synch is good. XML synch is far better because real-time. Does Villagio theme compatible with an XML synch solution such as Beds24 and other XML booking synch tool ? Thks.

    Hi Franck,

    There is used the same Hotel Booking plugin in all our rental themes and it support import/exportin iCal format only at the moment.
