Recently Released Features - Boost New UI
Add Airbnb Check-in Instructions added to Boost:
Now Boost has a place where you can give your guests clear instructions on how they check-in to their rental. Why is this important? Airbnb puts it well in their help article,Simplifying the check-in process : “Your guests’ check-in can set the tone for their entire visit. Making sure they can easily find and get into your space is a key part of creating a stress-free experience and can help lead to positive reviews.”
How to get there in Boost :
You can set Airbnb check-in Instructions in Boost in the Policy section of Channel Settings, Listing Settings, and Bulk Edit!
How to Add Check-In Instructions:
Click the dropdown below Check-In Method
Select a check-In method that most closely aligns with your property
Scroll down to Check-In Instructions and add instructions/notes on how the guest will check-in. Example: The lockbox code will be sent via email 1 day before check-in.
Check-in Instructions must be added if you have selected a Check-In Method.
Changes to the Global Price Factor
The Global Price Factor is now called Price Adjustment (%). We changed the name to more clearly and accurately describe what it is: a % based adjustment placed on rent.
Also, you may have noticed that the Price Adjustment ( % ) is no longer a multiplier like “1.0523” (5.23%) but instead now you can simply add the percent you would like to markup. For example, in order to markup your rent by 5% you will simply enter “5” in the field. If you were to enter “-5” you would be putting a 5% discount on rent.
Already have your price factors set in Boost? Good news, you don’t have to change a thing! All price factors previously set in Boost as a multiplier, have been converted to a % automatically.
Airbnb - Display Exact Map Location
Located in: Channel Settings, Listing Settings, and Bulk Edit, This field has been slightly updated to include 2 options: Display Exact Map Location and Don’t Display Exact Map Location.
Good to Know:
If these boxes are left blank, Boost will default your properties to only show the general location aka Don’t Display Exact Map Location.
