Calendar Feed CustomizationBack to top
OptionsBack to top
Only show my bookings: Filters out bookings made by other staff members, leaving only the bookings made under your account. Only show locked bookings: Filters out any bookings that do not have a locked booking status. This is a great way to hide bookings from the calendar that are maybe awaiting confirmation in an unlocked status. To learn more about statuses, please click here.
Number of Months ForwardBack to top
As previously mentioned, Checkfront will sync up to 24 months of future bookings with your remote calendar. 6 months is the default setting and you can make an adjustment to that here. Simply change the number of months to whatever fits your needs and press return on your keyboard. This will update the link at the bottom of the window accordingly. Now, when the calendar is added to your remote client, it will display bookings up to the limits defined in these settings.
Past bookings display as far back as one month prior. The number of months past is not configurable at this time.
CategoriesBack to top
Unchecking the All Categories field will open up a list of all the categories you have created in your Checkfront account. You are able to choose the specific categories you wish to include in your feed by checking them off individually.
Notice how the feed URL changes as you add or remove categories. Each category in your account has a unique ID, which defines it from the others. In the example above, only category IDs 3, 16 and 2 will be synced to the remote calendar.
Item FilterBack to top
Rather than filtering by category, it’s also possible to single out an individual item to be added to your feed. To do this, click on the Add Filter button. This will reveal a drop-down menu, from which you can choose your item. The feed you now add to your external calendar will only include bookings for that one item. You can make as many of these feeds as you wish.
The calendar feeds can also be accessed through your Checkfront account profile at Account > Profile > Available Feeds. However, please note, these feeds are not customizable as described above.
