This article will guide you on how to connect calendar-based channels.

Things to note before getting started

  • Check this article before moving forward: Calendar channels (ical connection) - Everything you need to know
  • Cloudbeds PMS only provides ical for room types, not individual rooms.
  • You will need to copy/import the URL of each room type separately.
  • For one-way channels: you will need to adjust inventory on Cloudbeds PMS manually for any incoming bookings from that channel/calendar or to manually create a reservation on Cloudbeds PMS.
  • Calendar-based channels do not provide us with the number of customers that booked, so bookings for shared/dorm rooms will be imported as 1 bed by default, even though there could be more!
  • Pitchup: This channel does not accept mapping more than one unit per accommodation type. If you have multiple units for an accommodation type, be sure to create each unit a specific listing in Pitchup to be able to map.
