An ICal link can be used to link your RoomRaccoon agenda to an external booking channel when there is no direct connection available. It can be described as a calendar synchronisation in which the availability of your hotel is communicated between the two systems.
When you want to set up a synchronisation with your own system or agenda, you can use iCal. The RoomRaccoon iCal feed simply displays data in a calendar program in Windows, Apple or Google.
Conversely, RoomRaccoon can also read an external feed, for example you can use a Google Calendar feed, or you can develop your own feed that works according to the syntax of Google Calendar.
Follow these recommendations regarding the use of specific ICal fields:
Create A Link:
LOCATION: room name
DTSTART: Check-in date
DTEND: 1 day before Check-out date
UID: OTA reservation number
DESCRIPTION: Name of booker
SUMMARY: E-mail address & phone number of booker in underlying EMAIL: and PHONE: tags
Example of an ical booking fragment:
LOCATION:Sea view room 3
Good to know!
