Calendar Import – English Instructions

Why should you import your calendar?

Automatic Updates
You keep your personal calendar updated with the occupancy of your accommodation and your calendar on gloveler synchronizes automatically. You save a lot of time especially of your accommodation is listed on multiple platforms.

Improved Communication with Customers
You will no longer receive booking requests for time periods that are unavailable. You save time and potential customers are happy because they receive less booking rejections.

More Bookings
Accommodations with updated calendars double their amount of received booking requests. When the calendar is well kept the entire accommodation inspires confidence and it shows that you are active on your account.

To successfully utilize this feature, please pay attention to the following:

  • Once imported, the external calendar overrides the Gloveler calendar. You cannot update the Gloveler calendar without going through the external calendar.
  • Recurring events, for example an appointment series that automatically occupies your accomodation every Monday, will not be exported to the Gloveler calendar and will appear as available.
  • You can only import iCal and ICS files . Importing XML, IFB or other file formats is not possible.
  • Copy and paste the .ics data, not the web URL.
