    We do have some PM-facing analytics features for guidebooks planned for this year.

    1) easily viewable simple metrics on your dashboard for guidebooks, house manual cards, and recommendations

    2) a more complex report of utilization.

  2. When we add images to our guidebooks we can drop and rotate images but a way to resize would be very helpful.

  4. Being able to bold, underline and italicize text is good, but it would be helpful if we could also change the font size as well.

  5. Currently, we just get a name and email address when some one purchases something from the market place. This offers little information when running multiple rentals a d takes time to match the request to the booking.

    In order to automate a process, we send emails via zapier. Currently, there is very little information provided in the standard template. I would like to see a feature that allows the host to customize the template when someone purchases something through the market place. For example add a date of when they would like a mid stay clean, which apartment, date for…

  6. I have been using the Guidebooks for about a month now. I have three of them built and I will soon be building the 4th one. I really like having the option to print the guidebooks out for those users who are not technically inclined. I wanted to make sure I had my Guidebooks down before exploring printing them and have now finally gotten around to that part of it. I was not real thrilled with the printout. There really needs to be an option for page breaks after each card. There are two reasons for this:
    1) When it…

  7. As a guest I would like to purchase multiple services at the same time and in the same order.

    Currently, each service requires a separate checkout service through the Guidebook Marketplace. This needs to be consolidated to a single transaction.

  9. I would love the ability for automated triggers to happen when someone purchases an option on marketplace.

    For instance, if someone purchased an early check-in, or an extra day in their stay, or rents a bike... that extra income would be added to my hostfully income report so I can get my commission on that without having to run separate reports on PayPal.

    Also for that to trigger an update to my cleaners schedule so they know to come earlier, or a day later. Or if they are renting something, it integrates to my Lynx software to send them a…

  10. When you are looking at the Guest Terms Approval Data under Reports, it shows the data for each guest that accessed the guidebook. If you only have one guidebook thats fine, but when you have multiple guidebooks, you don't know which one the guest looked at. This is because in the Guidebook column, instead of showing the actual name that we used for the guidebook, you show the cryptic 7 character link. I can't remember which cryptic link is which guidebook. It would be so much nicer if you showed us the actual name of the guidebook that we used,…

  11. Adding the ability to create subcategories in the House Manual would help organize the cards a lot. For example, it would be nice to have a subcategory for the Kitchen since several cards will be for operating kitchen appliances - having them all in one place would be cleaner and easier to find for the guest. Having a subcategory for Bedroom, Living Room, Yard might be some other options hosts might want to create. I envision the subcategories to be near the top of the manual, similar to subfolders in a directory. I know a workaround would be to create…

    -how they like the space
    -any improvements they could reccomend
    -what ammenties they would like if a returning customer

    maybe not these questions in particular but perhaps tabs that we could populate ourselves and determine what questions we would like to ask.

  13. The number of icons we can choose from is very limited. It would be great if you added more.

  14. Being able to assign the same recommendation for 2 different categories would save us a lot of time.

    1. Support more custom fonts/ Google fonts and font size management (global settings)

    2. The sort/ filter feature in "Categories" and "Recommendations" should be improved to avoid showing items in a lengthy list with duplicate tag, which is hard for users to see and manage. Users should be able to sort categories/cards by guidebook, by category type (House manual category/ Recommendation category) or by specific category (Places to eat/ Attraction/ Shopping, etc.).

    3. Set background color or upload background image for cards

    4. Adjust how much width the map takes up on the live guidebooks in case there are many categories. The scroll bar…

  16. Currently, we use the secure links function for the cleaners only. The layout of the menus and cards work well for creating a cleaning checklist that we can update remotely. We include videos showing how to fold towels / toilet paper, how to put away the crib, a photo of each room. Hostfully could expand their reach pretty easily by just adding another secure link section just for the cleaners.

  17. I like the look of all one color for the menu bar of a guidebook. This is difficult with multiple guidebooks since you need to create a new custom menu item for guidebook / color. A option to use pick a color for the whole guidebook would make this significantly easier.

  18. Currently only YouTube and Vimeo videos are allowed. Short form video from TikTok and YouTube shorts have some great content that isn't available on YouTube classic. For instance, there are 30+ videos showing how to put away a crib that are less than 60s on TikTok and very few that are less than 4 minutes on YouTube.

  19. I am a new user to Hostfully, and I love Guidebook so far! But, I can't help but think there is something that would be a great addition. The ability to add multiple guests at once to guidebook. This could be done by uploading a .csv file or similar that would contain the first, last names access codes, check-in and out dates... This would make personalization an absolute BREEZE rather than entering one at a time.
