The Hostaway software offers 3 calendar types:
- Monthly calendar based on the selected listing
- Multi-calendar view with all your listings
- Yearly view
Once you've connected your channels and listings, your Hostaway calendar becomes your main calendar to work with.
Monthly (individual) calendar
On the monthly calendar view, you can select the specific listing you want to check. Next to the listing name, you will see the option ¨Show¨: you can decide what do you want to see on the calendar. The options are confirmed reservations, inquiries, tasks (all or only supervised by you), sync status, minimum stay and notes:
If you select ¨notes¨option, in case there is a private note left for a specific date, it will be visible on the calendar:
To block the availability, please click on that day - availability, and mark as Blocked:

If you want to change the nightly rate, click on that specific date - pricing:

Using this option, you can update only specific weekdays of that selected period.
How to add a direct booking?
You can create a direct booking from the monthly and multiview calendars.
Select the days and click on Add direct booking:
Select the dates and on the new window that pops up you will find the option ¨add direct booking¨:
- Important! When you change a range of days, the settings you set will be pushed to the other channels. So when you mix blocked and open days, it will open all days or close all.
- The updates may take between 2 and 15 minutes to reflect on your channels.
- You often need to refresh the channel dashboards to see the changes.

- When you're just starting to use the software, it is strongly advised to verify the updates after processing.
When you manage multiple properties, the software can provide you with an overview of your reservations. In the same way, as in the monthly calendar, you can decide what options do you want to see on the calendar. In this multiview, you have the additional option - Simplified price.
If you select this option, the calendar will look like the following:
The simplified price option will remove (only visually) the price on the following date if the previous date´s price is exactly the same.
It gives you a general overview of all your reservations and available dates of all months.
Why do you notice different colors?
Green: Confirmed reservation
Light Green: This is for cross-listing. We block the child or parent listing.
