Creating an automated Smart Calendar Rule

You can create automated calendar rules at any time.
Once a reservation is confirmed, Smart Calendar Rules will automatically block these dates on connected listings.

Follow the instructions below to create automated calendar rules.

Since we are still deploying our new dashboard, follow the instructions for "Legacy navigation" if your search bar is in a blue line above the top navigation bar.

New navigation Legacy navigation

Step by step:

  1. Sign in to your Guesty account.
  2. In the top navigation bar, click the mode selector and select Operations mode.
  3. Click Properties.
  4. Click the relevant listing.
    If the listing is a multi-unit, click a sub-unit on the left-hand side first.
    Smart Calendar Rules must be set up on each sub-unit individually. Learn more about accessing a sub-unit's settings.
  5. In the listing's menu, click Automation.
  6. From the drop-down, click Calendar Rules.
  7. Turn on the Activate toggle.
  8. Click +Add rule to open the pop-up window with your Calendar Rule setting:
    1. From the drop-down, select the relevant listing.
    2. If you don't want to have the new rule apply to confirmed reservations already made that have a future check-out date, deactivate the Apply retroactively for existing reservations checkbox.
    3. If you don't want to automatically create a reverse rule for the target listing selected, deactivate the Add a reverse rule to the target listing checkbox.
  9. Click Save.
  10. Click OK.


Manual calendar blocks don't trigger Smart Calendar Rules — only reservations trigger them.
It's not possible to create reservations when Smart Calendar Rules are activated.
