Managing your Calendar

This article explains how to add and edit your pricing, availability and special offers to your products. 


1. Why is it important to keep my pricing and availability up to date? 

Keeping your availability up to date means you get more of the enquiries you want, and fewer of those you don’t.

Also, products that are more recently updated appear higher in our search results and this will drive you more enquiries.

2. Where can I update my availability data? 

Click ‘Your Products’ in Manager and then the ‘Update Availability’ link: Productsavailability

3. How do I update my availability? Can it be automatic?

If you use a booking management system that can distribute availability, contact support@muchbetteradventures.com and we will look to sync with it to save you the manual work. We are adding integrations with most widely used systems one after another.

Otherwise, you can quickly and easily update it manually. There are two ways you can do this.

a) If you’ve sold some spaces of a given period but still have some availability left, you can just update the Spaces Available column accordingly (ie. from 8 to 2 spaces left).

This will ensure you only get enquiries for that period from groups that are no more than 2 people.

b) If you’ve sold the whole period, you can either change the Spaces Available column to 0 or click ‘Options’ and ‘Mark Full’.

4. How do I add new pricing and availability periods? 

At the bottom of your product’s availability page, you’ll see the option to ‘Add a period’.

Add a new period

This will create a new line which automatically follows on from the previous period. Select the start date for a new period by clicking the start date and using the calendar.

Keep clicking ‘Add a period’ to add multiple new periods.  

5. I have a lot of products, can I bulk upload my pricing details? 

Not yet but we’re working on that. In the meantime, you can send your pricing spreadsheets to support@muchbetteradventures.com and we’ll load them in for you to edit from there.

6. Can I set a minimum group size for enquiries that I receive? 

Yes. Click ‘Options’ and set the minimum group size to whatever number you want. You won’t get any enquiries for any groups below this.

7. Can I allow for shorter stays in and around our set periods? 

Yes. You can turn this on and off for certain periods by clicking the Allow Shorter Stays under ‘Options’.

8. Can I change what’s shown as ‘Included’ and ‘Optional Extras’ in my product prices? 

Yes. This can be done below the group size section under Services and Inclusions. Just tick the boxes that apply and hit save. If there are any services not included please let us know and we’ll add them in.
