Beta: Setting up early check-in/late check-out blocks for reservations

If a guest is checking in early or checking out late, be sure to check the "Block the night before" or "Block the night ahead" checkboxes to avoid overlapping reservations. This will eliminate the risk of a new guest checking in before a previous guest has checked out, or before you've had the chance to complete the post-check-out tasks. The relevant checkbox will be grayed out if the night before or the night ahead is already occupied

You can create blocks for early check-in or late check-out times in several different ways:

  1. Multi calendar (manually)
  2. Listing's Calendar (manually)
  3. Reservation page (manually)
  4. Listing page (automatically for all future reservations)

 

Multi Calendar

You can manually block the night before check-in or the night after check-out for an existing reservation, directly via the Multi-Calendar.
