I'm wondering if there is a way to add a note or a flag of some sort to a date on the ribbon calendar? This would be helpful if we want to call out something related to that particular day.

For example, I just approve an early check in time for a guest but I told him if we should happen to take a booking for a guest who would be checking out the morning this guest arrives we may have to revert to the later default check in time in order to allow the housekeeper time to turn the house over between the two bookings. I'd like to be able to add a note to that day on the calendar so that it would remind me about this if I'm looking at the calendar or if I take another booking that checks out on that day.

Right now - no. That's a very commonly requested feature, and I know the engineers have done some work in that direction. No ETA though.

Any update on early check-in/late check-out flags?

I know it was me that answered you before, but I'm a little confused by my own answer. Maybe I'm just getting old. :-)

There is still no way to add random notes to the calendar.

But - if you have approved an unusual checkin or checkout time, that will be displayed by a colored stripe on your main bookings screen. You can see that under the Ribbon View on this support doc:


So you aren't totally blind - you can see the early-checkin bar, and if you see another booking butting up against it, you'll know there's an issue you need to address.

I wish this feature existed! I'd like to just make a note and it pops up on the regular full calendar view. Seems like it should be an easy feature add. I'd love to make a note about what cleaner is or isnt available on certain days just using a note to flag a certain day.

I would love this feature to be able to make notes on the calander.  Such as pool closure between October 10-November 10th for example.  Would be super helpful.
