Connect any iCal or URL Calendar to Properly to Import Bookings from Even More Listing Platforms
By Properly / Feb 23, 2017
Starting today, you can connect your iCal or other URL calendars to any property and sync those bookings with your Properly calendar!
This is an exciting feature that will improve scheduling services and changeover workflow for many hosts and property managers who list on platforms and channels other than Airbnb, HomeAway, BookingSync or Orbirental.
And it’s so simple. We added a new column on each Property view that displays connected listing accounts and a section to paste your calendar URL.
How to Connect an iCal URL to Properly
(Please note that you can only connect from your computer, not mobile.)
Disconnect any Airbnb and/or VRBO/HomeAway account(s) that you also have an iCal link for from your Properly account to avoid double bookings.Don’t worry, your properties, checklists and job history will be saved.
To disconnect simply head to Connected Accounts from your Profile dropdown menu, and click edit next to the connected Airbnb or HomeAway account.
Then click Disconnect Account.
After you’ve disconnected you’ll be taken back to your Connected Accounts page.
Next, you’ll need to add the iCal URL for each property to that property’s profile. Go to a property page. Then click on the Connections tab. Paste your iCal link in the field below.
If you did not already set up a property, you’ll need to add a new property. Simply go to the Properties tab, find the lefthand column and click + New Property. Once you set up that property, you can add a calendar URL to it.
Each property will need its own iCal or other calendar URL to pull in those bookings.
