In this guide, we’ll show you how to import months, even years worth of reservation data into your Bnbtally Sync Manager using the Historical Import feature.
Navigate to Historical Import
To get to the Historical Import page, click on the "Historical Import" menu item on the left.
Preview Import & Estimate
First, select the connection as well as the start and end date range you wish to import. From here, Bnbtally will provide you with a bulk pricing estimate based on the amount of data you wish to import from previous months or years.
Please note that Historical Import is a feature with separate bulk pricing based on past data, which means it’s a separate cost not included in the monthly ongoing service. However, you are able to import up to the previous calendar month without any extra charge.
Now, assuming all is well with the estimate, go ahead and click “Ok”. Depending on how far back you import, we may need some time to process your historical payouts and can email you when your import preparation is complete.
View List of Historical Reservations
Once processing is completed, you’ll be able to see the full list of reservation payouts. Some may be related to a disabled listing or may already be imported. But for the items that are ready to import into your Sync Manager, you’ll see the status “Ready to Import”.
You may find the advanced filter helpful. Here you can select to hide items from any disabled listings or items already imported. But you also have the ability to filter based on listing and payout account.
Import Selected to Sync Manager
As you scroll the list, you can select any items you’d like to import or select all. When you are ready to execute your import, click the button “Import Selected to Sync Manager”.
From here you will confirm the additional charges for the import and select “Continue”. The moment you do this, Bnbtally will begin processing your items and place them as sync objects into your Sync Manager. Your Sync Manager is then responsible for processing the sync objects into your books.
This concludes our guide to the Historical Import feature. The next step is managing your newly imported sync objects within the Sync Manager.
