What features Does the Host Tools App Offer?

Manage your calendar from anywhere

An automated and up-to-date calendar is the backbone of managing your short-term rentals. Now, with the Host Tools app, you can view and make adjustments to your hosting calendar, including adding or removing blackout dates directly from your smartphone. 

Our mobile app allows for two viewing options: monthly view and multi-calendar view. The multi-calendar view shows you all of your bookings across multiple listings. The monthly view shows you a monthly calendar of each of your listings.

View and edit reservations on-the-go

You can manually add a new reservation directly through the Host Tools mobile app using either calendar view. Like on your desktop, guests will be automatically sent your scheduled communications. You can tap on dates to add a booking, or use the plus icon in the upper right hand corner. 

Any change to a reservation implemented from within the Host Tools mobile app will automatically adjust scheduled messages or tags. For example, hosts can edit their guest's check-in and check-out times. If you've included a late check-out as an upsell, or a guest makes a last-minute request, making this edit within the app will automatically sync with your smartlock, to easily ensure no hassle with entering and exiting the property. 

Communicate with Guests

When using the unified inbox, you'll see all of your messages with guests in one place. In addition, you can sort by recent or scheduled messages. The "recent" tab will show you your messages in order of last communication, either from you or from them. The “scheduled” tab will sort the messages by when your following scheduled message will go out.

Editing scheduled messages from within the mobile app is highly beneficial to good customer service. For example, if a guest sends a message about an unexpected issue right before a planned check-out message is supposed to go out, you have the opportunity to turn off that automation and respond directly through the app. This will show your guest that you are invested in their experience.
