I was thinking it would easier to just add rules before import/export according to the Online Travel Agency (OTA) since each OTA might have its own mechanism.
Example. You can set your buffers up for each reservation taken on your website and each OTA like Airbnd and VRBO.
So you setup your website, Airbnb and VRBO to add a buffer the day before and after a reservation.
Create a rule for importing ical.
Rule 1. Import reservations taken Airbnb or VRBO. DO NOT ADD BUFFERS since those sites already added them.
Rule 2. Export reservations taken on your site to Airbnb or VRBO. SUBTRACT BUFFERS and let them add it since you have set it up that way.
Since each import/export is per accommodation per ical link let your website act as the traffic cop and delegate how all the info is managed going in and out to the other sites.September 6, 2021 at 2:11 am #1180508Andre FloresModerator

People have been asking for this feature to actually work for one and half year now and the issue is still here…
Because from how you developed it, this functionality simply doesn’t work with other major OTA’s such as AirBNB or Booking…
We shouldn’t have to wait almost 2 years for a bug to be fixed.
I just developed an entire site with your plugin with the express demand of my client to be compatible with OTA’s to find at the end that it’s actually not.
Every time someone is booking on airbnb for example, you add extra buffer time to an import that already have a buffer time. So it’s 2 extra days (1 before and 1 after) that we won’t be able to sell on our website due to this issue.
It can be a major loss at the end of the year for all your clients using this feature and you won’t even bother to correct it…
Just can’t believe what I just read in this topics.
I’m going create a ticket to your support and hope it will be taken more seriously than here.
