Property registration number for Homeaway/VRBO

A property registration number is required if your property is located in certain jurisdictions. The listing cannot go live and will fail the minimum content check if you do not provide this number for those properties.

Add your property registration number on each property's "Homeaway details' tab.

Rolling booking windows for all booking sites

By surprisingly popular demand you can now set Booking Windows for all booking sites, in days rather than the default Airbnb monthly values.

Why use days rather than months?

Allowing you to set booking windows is days allows much greater flexibility and has been a very popular request.

Major upgrade! Cleaning scheduler 2.0.

Manually assign cleaning tasks.

Today we're releasing a significant upgrade to our Automated Cleaning Scheduler. You can now manually assign cleaning tasks to one of your cleaners. Watch this quick video to see the feature in action.

We've already had a great response to this upgrade. Penny who manages hundreds of cleaning tasks over 30+ listings says:

Very much impressed with the cleaning scheduler now that we can allocate cleans and then it doesn't show to other cleaners. There are no questions as to why they have not got that clean. Well done!

Quick intro

Uplisting Cleaning provides a solution to you and your cleaning team to keep track, manage and monitor cleaning events (we call them changeovers). Changeovers are automatically created for each booking, saving you hours.

When to use manual assignment

assign-clean (1).gif

Use this method when you want to assign a specific cleaner to a cleaning task. ​

  • Changeover events are automatically created for each booking on Uplisting
  • Cleaner cannot see or access any changeover until you assign it to them
  • Cleaner is only alerted (via email) to new changeovers they have been assigned to

Additional improvements

  1. You can now see the cleaner who has accepted the task, and each action

  1. You can reset each changeover 'action'. For example, if a cleaner accepts the task but wishes to un-accept, they can do that and the changeover moves back to a pending state.

Automated management fee calculations. Big time saver!

Happy New Year 🥳! We wish you all the success for the next 12 months and beyond.

Today we're releasing Automated Management Fee Calculations as the first of a few new features to help get 2020 off to the most time saving of starts.

Quick intro

Rather than manually calculate the management fee for each booking, Uplisting will now do this for you, automatically. Watch a quick explainer video here.

Set your management commission fee for accommodation and cleaning (both are optional) on the management fee settings page (takes a few seconds!). Management fees appear on the pricing tab of each booking (image below).

Advanced usage These new management fees are also accessible on your Zapier Zaps, your Uplisting reports and any Uplisting webhooks you have setup.

Set booking lead time for Booking.com

By very popular demand you can now set booking lead time for Booking.com on each listing. You can set the lead time in hours for maximum flexibility.

The benefit

For most of you, the main benefit is you can avoid last-minute Booking.com reservations.

How to

Pretty simple! The guide below shows you how.

Listing filter dropdown now remains open

Small but helpful update. When filtering by listings and tags the dropdown remains open.

This allows you to select multiple listings and tags without the need to reopen the filter each time.

View average guest review ratings & more key insights on each booking

Guest verification.jpg

Do you and your team spend a lot of time clicking on guest profiles to see if they're verified? Wouldn't it be great to see how other hosts have reviewed each guest?

Good news! This information is now shown on each Airbnb booking and request. The insights are colour coded for additional context. Let's hope the majority of your guests are in the green for all 3 insights! Below are a few examples to understand why these insights are beneficial.


A guest with poor reviews

This guest has an average review rating of 2.5 from 4 hosts. Read the reviews to understand if this guest is worth hosting.

A guest who hasn't been verified

This guest has not provided ID to verify their identity. We know many hosts won't allow guests without ID (although Airbnb still allows the guest request to book). not-verified.png

A guest with only 1 review

This guest only has 1 review which may mean they're relatively new to Airbnb and might require a bit of hand-holding verified 1 review.png

🧠 Calendar row button now remembers your selection

calendar-selector.jpg

Rates and minimum length of stay (MLOS) were shown as default rows for each listing on your calendar. You could select to show/hide those and other rows but on refresh, the rows reset to default.

Now your selection is persisted. You can deselect all rows to only show your bookings and when you refresh that view remains in place.

This was a very popular request so we hope it's helpful!

Add bed type to your Homeaway/VRBO listings
