21. Considerations

Did you know?  Calendar channels that use ical integrations do not transmit cancellations to myallocator.  You have to adjust for any Tripadvisor vacation rental cancellations manually.

Selling Dorm/beds rooms is not recommended.  

Calendar-based channels do not provide us with the number of customers that booked, so bookings for shared/dorm rooms will be imported as 1 bed by default, even though there could be more! It's safest to not update/sell dorm rooms on Tripadvisor vacation rentals.
