The calendar has now a dark theme and additional information. Which is good, however, now I cannot see my personal calendar notes against the booking!
Calendar Notes Still Visible on Reservation Details
Since the 2023 Summer Release, Calendar Notes are no longer visible/accessible after a date has past on the actual calendar. However, I discovered (by accident) if there was an Airbnb reservation that had a note applied, the notes are still visible on the reservation details as its retained with the reservation information. Scroll to the bottom of reservation details/Calendar Note. If there is a reservation from another synced booking site with a note, it doesn't appear, since it is not attached to an Airbnb reservation.
This doesn't help those who need the at-a-glance view for notes, but can help if we need to go back and find a specific note on a date that has passed. Might help some Hosts who need to go back and review previous notes that they can't view on the calendar any more.
Yes, I have discovered that @Joan2709! Do you know if the Airbnb Team are going to reinstate this incredibly valuable feature? Since they removed it I’m having to write my notes in my Google calendar and toggle between the two…it’s so time consuming and frustrating 😔
I agree it is a much needed feature for Hosts and not sure why it was removed? To date, I have not seen any information about if Airbnb will be adding this feature back to the calendar.
Why is no one doing anything about this issue? We are all asking to bring the old calendar back with the options of showing your notes in a months view and taking out the daily price. Please do something about it. It is essential in running our listings in the most efficient way possible.
Hi Hermien, have you had a reply from anyone in Airbnb about this?
If not, has it been escalated?
I agree with you, its really frustrating not being able to write notes on my calendar anymore .
I don’t have a computer. Everything is on my mobile phone, and removing notes has made my bookings so much more work having to go into another calendar on my phone to put a note in about a guest booking. I’m able to see and edit the notes I made before this function was removed, so I can’t understand why this valuable function hasn’t been reinstated?
very bad move, removing the notes. I agree with everyone here... I cannot imagine that it actually benefits anyone anywhere. All the points raised are important; putting in big events; prep dates, other platform bookings etc plus ability to screenshot and share a month view. This is a bad bad change. Time to leave airbnb??
I absolutely HATE what they have done to the desktop calendar. It's unusable.
I make notes across multiple dates and now I have to click on each friggen dot to see what the notes are. I used to see the notes across the days in the month view. And whats with the day selection?? Have to keep unselecting the day so I can move to the next day to read the note. I HATE IT!
Who comes up with these ideas. No notice, no consultation.
The new calendar is horrible. I can't seriously understand how the developers thought that this was going to be an upgrade. I need to see the notes without having to click on the dot!!! Ugh.. so annoying. And I can't even add notes from my phone???!!!??? It's unusable.
I've revisited this and found that the notes option is no longer available on the month view on the iPad app. However, they are visible in the list view! Not great, but it's something.
The web version does not have the list view at this time.
@Stephen384 Can you still be able to see the notes in the phone or Ipad?? I can't and I'm completely lost without the "notes"
Well this keeps changing on a regular basis...I can't keep up! 🤔
@Stephen384 points out that they have changed the options for viewing on iPhone/iPad. List view allows you to scroll and see all the notes. The other options you have to perform several taps to see the note. I wish they would add something to the desktop view to make it easier to view the regular calendar at-a-glance (as in the past). Right now we have to click each date that has a dot to see notes. Here are some screen shots for the iPhone/iPad options:
List View - A Black Dot on Date Indicates Note
(tap the calendar icon at top to see choices for viewing)
Thank you, at least it's better than nothing! I'd echo @Joan2709 , this is small and information is becoming crowed.
For my regular bookings, I rely on the regular browser. Hopefully, the option to show the note will be back soon.
@Kartik23 on our browser the private notes show up when I hover the mouse over a night in the calendar. `does that help?
That would be lovely @Mike-And-Jane0
However, not working for me, already tried removing the browser cache. Is there any setting I need to change?
Can you please add a picture?
