When you add available dates/times to your spot's calendar in the Parkade app, others can book your spot instantly! Parkade's calendar feature is key to this — as we only instantly book your spot during dates/times you've told us, via the calendar, that your spot is available.
Once you've set your availability on the calendar, just sit back, keep your spot empty during those times and we'll take care of the rest.
We offer a few different ways to manage your calendar, depending on whether you're wanting to quickly adjust your calendar for the next week, or make fine-grain adjustments or long-term adjustments to your calendar.
Quickly set your upcoming week's calendar
Want to quickly view or modify the next week on your calendar? That's easy in the Host tab. Just tap "Host" and, at the bottom of the screen, you'll see the next seven days — and if part of a day, or the whole day is available, it will be highlighted in green. If it's entirely blocked out, it'll be red.
Just tap on the day to flip between it being blocked out (red) and available (green). Easy!
Edit specific times, or longer-term availability
Need to be more precise than just making entire days available or unavailable, or want to make a longer change like making your spot available for the next 2 years?
To do that, just tap on the “Host” tab in the bottom navigation bar. Then, tap on the calendar icon. Select your spot (if you have multiple) and then hit the "Edit availability" button to add available dates/times to book.
Remove or edit available times
Removing or editing these blocks of available times that you've added is a snap.
To remove a block of time, just tap the calendar icon on the top of the Host screen. You'll see a list of all blocks of time for that spot. Then, just tap on that block, and you'll see a "Delete availability" button. Press it, and the whole block of available times will be removed. Presto!
You can also change the start date/time and end/date time of available dates. For example, perhaps you want to change the start date your spot is available from Oct 29 to Nov 4. That's easy! Just tap on the block, change the start date/time and hit "save."
Here's a video walkthrough of making both of the changes mentioned above:
Quickly block out a few hours
Using the Park app, residents with parking spots can make their spot available to rent instantly for hours, days or months. However, if you'd made your spot available and then needed it yourself for a short period, it was very cumbersome to block out some time from your calendar.We've fixed this, and made it possible to block out times you need your spot back in just a couple taps.
Just go to the Host tab and tap the calendar, and hit "Edit Availability". On the following screen that pops up, you can now choose whether you're adding available times to your calendar, or removing availability.
Be aware this won't cancel any existing bookings during this time. It will just prevent new ones from being instantly booked.
The calendar view shows both the blocks of dates/times that you've made available for others to book your spot instantly, and the upcoming reservations for the spot you're currently viewing.
Reservations within that stretch of available days are shown below the blocks. Just tap on a reservation or availability block to view or edit it.
When viewing the calendar, Parkade shows just one spot's calendar at a time. Many people have multiple spots, especially property managers. It's easy to switch between spots! The spot number at the top of the calendar is tappable, and it will open a list of all your parking spots that you can use to switch to a different spot's calendar.
