It is a setting related to listings that work with instant bookings and very useful to avoid unexpected bookings on your website and sales channels.

Setting the default Booking Window
You will need to indicate to Stays.net what the period of your booking window is, being able to enter a maximum period of 24 months or 720 days.
To do this, access the [Settings > Reservation Settings > Duration] menu. In the [Booking Window Settings] section, choose the period of your choice and save the changes.
As an additional help feature, Stays.net will use this period as a basis for checking if your price register is aligned!

Configuring the policy per listing
In case you need to configure a different booking window per listing, access the listing page and click on the [Distribution > Reservation Settings] tab.
Just click on the [Individual] button, enter the desired setting and save the changes.
By clicking on the [Global] button it will also be possible to see a preview of the setting that was applied in the global model of the system.
The setting will always be used in listings, even if they are part of a multi listing location. Cloned listings will follow the booking window you set in the parent listing.
