Revise guest portal invitation process
My Guests usually encounter an error when they click on the link to view their reservation details. As it turns out, it's because they haven't claimed their Hostfully account (to log in to the Guest Portal).
As a guest, I should be able to register for guest portal access from the Booking Payment Confirmed email template if iI don’t have an account already so that I can access the link to view the reservation details.32 votes
This is actually a bug and will be fixed shortly.
Modification of scheduled messages
On the "Scheduled Messages" tab, we should be able to modify a message that is scheduled for a guest. For example, If I have a guest pay for an early check in, I should be able to modify their scheduled messages to show their new real check in time. Right now the only option is to delete a scheduled message and then we have to remember to go in and send it manually at the time it would have normally been sent.9 votes
Be able to edit airbnb guest reviews before they go out
It would be really helpful to be able to edit guest reviews before they go out to Airbnb guests.7 votes
Automatic retrying of failed messages whenever possible
Sometimes some messages failed to be sent due to server errors (Call failed 500, 429, 404). I had to go to Message Log > manually re-fired it. However, it will be better if the system automatically retries the failed messages for these types of errors.17 votes
Make more variables work for trigger "New Message in Inbox"
As a Property Manager, I would like to get as much information as possible about the SMS/Email notification upon receiving a new message. It would be better to know which guest [$GUESTNAME$] is sending the message, from which channel [$LEADCHANNEL$]/which property [$PROPERTYINTERNALNAME$].
At the moment, only these 2 variables work for trigger event “New Message in Inbox” because the message is thread-oriented. I want more variables to work with this event.
Send Now Feature
It would be useful to have a "Send Now" option on Scheduled Messages for example for those guests who want their check in instructions early.5 votes

Ability to sort the triggers table is planned.
Complex trigger for certain # of hrs after confirmed booking.
It would be great for there to be a complex trigger option after booking confirmation. If we could choose to have a message sent a certain number of hours after book, this would allows us to send a personal message prior to the automated messages starting. I know there are other work arounds but simply having the trigger option would make this simpler6 votes
Need Mobile Friendly Pre-Arrival Form
The "Age" field in the Pre-Arrival form is not mobile friendly. It only shows one digit, so the user can't see the full number they've entered, neither does it show the up/down arrows that you see on the desktop site.
I've had issues with customers who cannot complete the pre-arrival form because of these issues with the Age field.16 votes
This has been planned for development.
Modify system template "Invite guest"
As a PM, I want the system template "Invite guest" should show in the list of System templates for me to make edits. At the moment, I need to manually select and modify it from Inbox3 votes
Populate guest email address into client data from an Airbnb booking using data from the pre-arrival form
Since Airbnb doesn't share guest email addresses, it would be nice if the data collected on the pre-arrival form could populate into the guest (client) data page.4 votes
Add conditions of Pre-arrival form not submitted to remind guests to submit the form
For now, our trigger hasn't supported the condition of "Pre-arrival form not submitted" yet. Hence if we want to follow up with the guests, you can only monitor from Pipeline to see if it's submitted or not. We'd love to have such condition in triggers to automate the process.2 votes
Add Complex Trigger for After Quote is sent OR Lead is closed
We do a lot of quotes from direct bookings. It would be great to set a trigger that activates after a quote is sent. This way we can use it to automatically send a follow-up message to a quote.
Additionally if a lead is closed (or automatic lead close time option is added!) it would be great to send a final message by a trigger that is based on a closed lead!2 votes
Add Search field for Scheduled Messages
As a PM, I want the Scheduled Messages page to have the same Search fields that the Message Log has.5 votes
Allow Triggers to be sent on certain days of the week as a complex condition
We would like to automate our guest notifications about when to take out the trash and do other day-sensitive communications.5 votes
Add reservation/guest identifier to failed payment system template
As a PM, I receive this email when a payment fails (attached herein). There is no guest or reservation identifier and I need to do further research to figure out what reservation this relates to. It would be great if Hostfully can add the guest name and reservation UID to this system message.
I tried to manually add those two items to the system template but those variables are not available for this template.6 votes
Edit font in message templates
Please give us the ability to change the font of the messages templates. I copied and pasted my messages I had stored previously, which are not matching the writing style of the variables such as guest name, and it looks sloppy IMO. Or give us the option to match the variable styles or reset to default maybe?31 votesunder review · Michele responded
Automated responses to Airbnb inquiries
It would be so wonderful to have the option for an automated response to inquiries. I came from Hospitality.com and REALLY got used to my inquires having an automatic response from me and not having to stress about that response time. I'm desperately missing that feature and hope it can be added to Hostfully in the near future. Thank you!3 votes
Triggers for inquiries were removed from the system last years but are being brought back shortly. Stay tuned.
Pre arrival form in multiple languages
We should be able to have the pre arrival form (as we have all other communication with guests) in other languages, not only english.15 votes
Add Pets as a Complex Condition in Messaging Triggers
You are currently able to log the number of pets and infants on a property in the reservation process.
It would be really nice to be able to trigger automated pet-policy emails only to guests who's reservation has a pet associate with it.7 votes
