I have something to ask of you! Can you please make a request of the Tech team on my behalf?
Until a few months ago when looking at our views stats the page looked like this....
Some of the information on that page was not of much use, such as booked and unbooked days because that didn't relate to our occupancy.
But the stat I did find useful was to see on what days bookings had occured and how those days related to views....each booking related to black dot on the graph.
This is the current view graph and that information relating to booked days has gone.....
I do prefer the format of this page but it would be handy if the Tech team could once again dot those days where bookings had been made. I am finding my bookings come in blocks! I will go for a week without a booking and suddenly 4 will come in the space of an hour or two and this has become a consistent pattern and I would like to try and work out why. If multiple bookings come on the same day, above the dot for that date they could just include a number indicating how many bookings had been received on that day!
See what you can do Lizzie.
Thanks for asking me about this. I can certainly pass this back to the team who works on this.
Just to gather more information, it would be great to also hear from more hosts on whether you feel this was useful to you and why.
Also, in reference to your hypothesis Robin and needing the information to help you with this, do you think there could be a better way of presenting this to you or was the way it showed before fine with you?
Take a look at our Community Month of Celebration.
Could you go plastic free?
Looking to contact our Support Team, for details...take a look at the Community Help Guides.
I also found this VERY useful and sent TWO emails about it - with responses that were not useful whatsoever. I felt they didn't even understand my comment or truly care. I found those booking dots very useful to track the dates that actually resulted in bookings. Now it's just a bunch of views, but doesn't help me see when bookings actually occurred. Why was it removed anyway?? Do some techies just sit around thinking of ways to change things all the time without even surveying hosts to see what is useful to them? Change simply for the sake of change is not always beneficial. Does anyone there ever listen to us?
Hi Robin. I also found this a useful feature. My bookings also usually arrive close together with gaps inbetween, presumably because the search ranking is boosted after the initial booking.
@Lizzie I am the same, views since 1st November indicate zero which I know is untrue because I have guests here who have viewed on both the 2nd and 3rd. They have confirmed to me that they did that!!!!
Letti, I really would like this information because as I said I am getting around 21-24 bookings per month and they are coming in blocks. Just today I have 4 confirmed plus a pre-approval. I would like to know why I will go 8 days with nothing and then get 6 in two days. I am trying to relate that to views, or is there some reason why my listing is popping in and out of search visability!
