template variables in offer descriptions

Post by epicea » Thu Jun 06, 2019 7:06 am

It may be this is possible already I tried a couple of things without success though.

On booking com for example, they dynamically enter text for like this:
FREE cancellation before 11:59 PM on July 13, 2019
That's just an arrival date minus 30 days as per the deposit policy we posted there.

Can we do that in beds24? Specifically, in the offer do that back-reference?

It is possible to use template variables in your communications with your guests.

Go to https://wiki.beds24.com/index.php?title ... _Variables for the list of variables.

You can use [FIRSTNIGHT:-30 days] for example, this will give the same result as you see in Booking.com.

That doesn't work in offer descriptions on the booking page

Correct. Template variables use information from the booking so they only work after the booking was made i.e. in EMails.

Adding a dynamic date to the booking page is not possible.

if the booking page did not use dynamic data then it couldn't display a price :D

So it's possible. That's how booking.com do it of course.
