Managing a multi-unit settings in the main unit or in a sub-unit level

You can either make changes to a multi-unit listing via its main settings (the multi-unit's main unit level), which will apply to all sub-units, or edit a sub-unit's settings individually (a specific sub unit level). Where the change is made depends on the specific item you're editing.

Understanding where to make changes

As many settings must be identical across the entire listing, some items are only editable via the main settings. For example, the property's pricing and amenities. Some items can only be edited via a sub-unit's settings as they are unique to each unit, such as the apartment number.

In addition, some items can be edited via both the listing's main settings and per sub-unit, as they could either be the same for the entire listing or differ per sub-unit. For example, listing descriptions and property owners. 

Note:

Calendar minimum nights can be edited per sub-unit calendar while default minimum nights can only be edited per main unit.

The tables below will help you understand where each item can be edited. The items are divided into the different sections you see within a Guesty listing.
