AirBnB House Manual

I have a .pdf file in the Guest Resources section of my AirBnB listing. I just updated it and want to upload it. I don't see a way to upload it and push it from Owner Rez. Also, since I am API, I am unable to edit that section on the AirBnB side.
Any suggestions?

We're not familiar with anywhere in Airbnb where you can upload a PDF file for guests. Can you provide more information and screenshots, maybe in an email to the Helpdesk?

Email sent.
It's under "Guest Resources," as "House Manual." When API connected, this is not editable.

Ahh. There are a few areas like that where Airbnb doesn't allow them to be changed via API but also disables the option in the Airbnb site when API is connected.

To get around that:

1) Go to the Airbnb settings in OwnerRez, click "Change Property Mappings" and switch the sync for that property to "Limited". That will stop syncing listing content for the moment.
2) Go to Airbnb and make the changes you need for house manual -- those options will be re-enabled since the sync is in Limited mode
3) Once everything looks good on house manual, come back to OwnerRez and switch back to Everything mode to start syncing listing content again.

Just to clarify, when Everything sync is re-enabled, these non-API-controlled settings won't be overwritten? That's potentially very useful info.

In many cases, yes. We do occasionally find some situations where that doesn't work.

Thanks. I ended up using the "Limited" feature to just delete it. Back in the day, you used to have all your info in a self-produced manual. Now there is a field for everything, so it's not necessary.
