Updating the calendar

Boatsetter aims to provide the best experience for everyone, so it is important to make sure your calendar is up-to-date. Renters rely on your calendar to know your boat's availability and rates. 

Keeping your calendar up to date

How to update your calendar to reflect your boat’s availability: 

  • Go to: Owner dashboard > My boats > Manage boat > Calendar

Here you can adjust the specific day or dates on the calendar you wish to change by double clicking on the day(s). You will be prompted to change the status of the date to "Available" or "Unavailable".  

Hourly unavailability

You may also mark time ranges as unavailable on a given day. To do this, select “Mark specific time range(s) as unavailable” and choose the time range you wish to make unavailable.  If you wish to add another time range as unavailable, select “Add new range”. Days with unavailable time ranges will appear partially grayed out from the calendar view, as only part of the day is unavailable. If you mark a time range as unavailable and your plans change, you can always remove the range selection so it is available for bookings.

Time ranges that overlap with existing booking requests or approved bookings cannot be marked as unavailable. You can only mark time ranges as unavailable for a single day, not for a range of days.If there are time ranges that your boat is always unavailable on multiple days out of the week, you can update your day of the week and daily start time availability. For more information on editing availability, you can visit this article here.

Date price adjustments

Additionally, you can adjust the price of a specific day or date range by using the slider to offer a percent increase or decrease, which applies to all your duration offerings. If you need help editing your booking price, you can review this article here.

Calendar features

Your calendar will update based on how you configure availability and daily start times. For example if you do not select any start times for Mondays, all Mondays will be marked as unavailable on your calendar. You can still mark individual Mondays as available directly on the calendar, if needed.

Any days that are marked as unavailable will show on the calendar with gray stripes. Approved bookings reflect on the calendar as a blue bar and booking requests ready for approval will show as a yellow bar. The “x” sign will appear if you have more than one approved booking or booking request for a given date. For example, if you have 3 total booking requests for a given day you will see a yellow bar with “x 3” displayed on that day. If there are any percent increases or decreases on the calendar, they will show with the percent change in green (increase) or in red (decrease). You may also refer to the legend on the calendar for these details.
