Deactivating Listings in your PM Software does NOT un-publish properties from BDC. Any property that you would like to close/remove from Booking.com must be Unpublished in Boost before it is deactivated in your PM Software.
Unpublishing listings from Booking.com is a quick and easy process. There are two steps that you need to follow to get the job done; by running a "close" operation within Boost, and then discontinuing the distribution of the unit(s) from your Property Management System.
Follow the steps below, to close the specific listing prior to next step. If you discontinue distributing the listing from your Property Management System before closing your unit may still be live on booking.com not connected to your current rates & availability.
In order to ensure that all settings remain in place, you can close your listings from within Boost.
To begin, log into Boost (https://boost.rezfusion.com) and navigate to the new-and-improved user dashboard by clicking the logo in the upper-left hand corner.
From here, the closing process can begin:
First, navigate to your listings by hitting the house icon on the sidebar navigation on the left-hand side of the screen.
Once on the Listings page, open up the Property Filters and narrow down the list properties to just the unit(s) that will be unpublished today. NOTE:If you are unpublishing all units please skip to step 4.
Boost pro tip: Always set the PMS Status dropdown to "Active". This will ensure that your view will only show units that are actively being sent from your PMS.
Narrow the list down further by searching by the Unit Name or ID.
Select "Add to Queue" for the unit(s) that will be unpublished from Booking.com, then click the "Perform Operations" button.
The Operations menu will slide out from the right and you will run one operation:
Booking.com: Send Hotel Status (Ready to Check / Open / Closed) and select Closed (temporarily closed to bookings) to close the unit down.
NOTE: If you are unpublishing all units click the "Perform Operations" button and then "Select all ___ items".
The selected units are now unpublished from Booking.com.
