HomeAway / VRBO Property Importing is Almost Here!

We are super excited to launch an exciting new feature which will allow Lodgix properties to be created from existing HomeAway / VRBO listings.

One of the first setup tasks required in Lodgix is the entering of inventory.   For many property managers, this is a time consuming task made even more frustrating because most of the data already exists on HomeAway.   Wouldn’t it be great to be able to simply pull listings from HomeAway / VRBO and have properties created on Lodgix?

That feature will be launched very soon.

The first step will be allowing Lodgix access to your HomeAway account:

Then a selection list will appear allowing to your choose all or individual properties to import:

The process should be slick and allow Lodgix accounts to be setup quickly and efficiently when establishing a new account.  This feature should launch by November 15th, 2016.   Thanks!

Great News! HomeAway / VRBO is Rolling Out iCal Importing!

Great news!  As of June 2015, HomeAway is rolling out iCal importing, which means those of you with 4 properties or less can once again sync your calendars with HomeAway / VRBO!

If you have 5 properties or more then we recommend using the HomeAway Feed as you have the added benefit of listing sync, and connection to the BookItNow platform in addition to calendar sync.

iCal Importing with HomeAway

Here is the support article at HomeAway with instructions on how to define an iCal import URL within HomeAway.  Note in the support article below, HomeAway notes that not all listings have access to this new feature yet.

Location of the Lodgix iCal Export URL

Cut and paste the provide iCal export URL for each property into your corresponding HomeAway listing.

QuickBooks Online Integration…Update!

Some great progress made so far in our bid to offer the best vacation rental software quickbooks sync on the market today!  We’ve established the initial link to QuickBooks Online and are working through Intuit’s requirements (which are quite strict), that will allow our new sync app to get listed on the Intuit App Store:  http://appcenter.intuit.com/search/a-works%20with%20quickbooks%20online

Next step will be getting a few authentication tweaks worked out and then comes the hard part of actually moving data between qbooks and Lodgix and vice versa.   Fingers crossed!  No timeline yet as to product launch.
