Upload Evolve Bookings

VRScheduler is unable to import bookings from Evolve. The Evolve iCal links create double bookings and do not show same day check in/outs.  We can import bookings from the Evolve flat-file downloaded from their portal.

Upload Bookings from Evolve

1.  Setup --> System Settings --> Set Has Evolve Properties to YES

2.  Setup --> Property --> Edit (pencil icon).  

3. Scroll down to  Bookings section --> check Evolve CSV and enter the associated Evolve Property ID.  Note: Use the CSV import file from step 4 to obtain the Evolve Property IDs.

4. Log into your Evolve Partner portal and Navigate to BOOKINGS --> Booking Report

Click APPLY FILTER

Scroll to the bottom and click Export to CSV to download the list of bookings in CSV format.  

Open the CSV in a spreadsheet program.

IMPORTANT: Move the Guest Full Name header so that it is above the Guest Names (replacing False = No)

The column headers should be exactly:

Guest Name

Guest Email
Guest Phone Number

Pets? True = Yes
Guest Full Name
