Create or delete a closed period

If you want a rental to be unavailable for bookings during a certain time, you can create a closed period to block availability. Closed periods can always be deleted again to open up your calendar for bookings.

💡 Note: You can create a closed period for each room type of the same rental separately or the entire rental. If you have several units of a room type it is not possible however to close only a specific unit of the rental (all units will be closed).

  3. A slide-in window appears to the right side of the screen: Select which rental you want to close, fill in the dates, and leave a comment.
  4. Click Create Closed Period to finish.

💡 Note: You can also simply click on the calendar on the start date and then click on the end date. If you only want to block 1 night, make sure you only select 1 day (= 1 square) in the calendar.
Example: You only want to block 12th January ➡ click twice on the square of the 12th to select only this one night.

A little window will pop up where you can select to create a closed period for the selected dates. 2017-11-06_1359.png
