Booking Tags using PMS Note Field

Booking tags are used by the Task Rules to add and remove Tasks from the calendars;  An Escapia booking that has a Pool Heat add-on can be Tagged with #PoolHeat then a Turn On Pool Heat Task can be automatically added to the calendar one day before Check-In.

Booking Tags can be imported from the following PMS note fields (if you don't see one listed, please contact us at help@vrscheduler.com).  Escapia, Streamline, Orbirental, Beds24, BookingSync, 365Villas, V12, Hostaway, and CSV Booking Uploads

Define Tags and Add Tag to Booking Notes Field in PM Software

  1. Define Tags such as  #Crib or #PoolService.  Make the tags words that you would not normally use in the notes field. You do not have to use the #.
  2. Enter the correct Tag to the notes field for each booking reservation.  Below are a few examples of where to place the tags.  If a PMS is not listed, please use the standard notes field.
Note: Only the first 2000 characters of the notes field are imported, so if you have a long note be sure to put the tag at the beginning.
