Blocking or unblocking dates manually via the Multi-Calendar

You can manually block or unblock dates on a listing via the Multi-Calendar. The selected dates will be blocked or unblocked across all booking channels. A manual block is a type of flexible block, which means it can be overridden. Learn more about managing blocks.

You can create manual blocks for current or future dates, not for past dates (Pilot users can add manual blocks for past dates as well).

A block must be for two days or more. The block will be shown in gray in the Multi-Calendar, covering only part of the start and end date, as check-in and check-out times are generally in the morning, leaving the remainder of the day available.

This means that if, for instance, Jan 5th is the "From" date and Jan 6th is the "To" date, there will be one block night on the calendar, covering only part of Jan 5th and Jan 6th.

Note:

  • A manual block won't block any of the multi-unit's sub-units. Therefore, it will not affect the number of unassigned sub-units in the calendar.
  • Beta users: If you are using Smart Calendar Rules, make sure you mark the Include manual blocks checkbox under the relevant rule if you want to automatically block the dates on another connected listing. Otherwise, blocking dates manually won't trigger the rules.
  • Confirmed, reserved, and awaiting payment reservations will automatically block the relevant dates on the listing's calendar.
  • Syncing delays may cause reservations to be booked on blocked days for Airbnb and Vrbo.

Tip:

Instead of dragging the cursor, you can click a date on the relevant listing and select a date range across one or more nights in the upper part of the pop-up window. You can use this method to block past dates: click on a future date and then change the date range manually in the pop-up window to a past date.

Follow the instructions below to block dates manually via the Multi-Calendar.
