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.

Step by Step:

  1. Sign in to your Guesty account.
  2. In the top menu, click Listings.
  3. 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.
  4. In the listing's menu, click Automation.
  5. From the drop-down, click Calendar Rules.
  6. Next to Active, turn on the toggle.
  7. Click Add rule.
  8. From the drop-down, select the relevant listing.
  9. If you do not 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.
  10. If you do not want to automatically create a reverse rule for the target listing selected: deactivate the Add a reverse rule to the target listing checkbox.
  11. Click Save.
  12. Click OK.


Manual calendar blocks do not trigger Smart Calendar Rules. Only reservations trigger them. See more information here. It's not possible to create reservations when Smart Calendar Rules are turned on.
