July 22nd - Enhanced filters in Reservations module.

We have released an enhanced version of the "More filters" functionality to improve its usability and search results. We have added four new filters that work as follows:

  • Check-in or Check-out: will display any reservation living within the time range selected.
  • Check-in: will display reservations that have a check-in during the selected period.
  • Check-out: will display reservations that have a check-out during the selected period.
  • Creation: will display reservations that were created during the selected time period.

Also, filters will not be reset once you logout from the Hostaway dashboard and will remain selected until you change them.

July 10th - SOLVED: Issue with adding new Airbnb accounts

The issue has been solved on Airbnb side. The root cause of this issue was a change on the code from Airbnb to their authorization logic.

Airbnb has put in place a fix and you are now able to connect and import new Airbnb accounts.

PLEASE NOTE:

Airbnb has added a new screen to the process which indicates that a new account has been created. This is not the case. No new account is created but the message is confusing. We have escalated this with Airbnb.
