Cannot sync Airbnb bookings/calendar with ICS feed

Post by Sersti »

I'm trying to sync Airbnb bookings/calendar with an Airbnb ICS feed.

I can import the bookings to the EPIM calendar no problem (File -> Import -> Calendar -> iCal -> URL) but when I try to use the same URL for an ICS subscription, I get an error when EPIM checks the URL.

The error is "We could not reach the calendar. Please check that URL is correct and Firewall is not blocking EPIM"

The URL is obviously correct and EPIM is not blocked by a Firewall...

Hi again Max.
The feed is still available. Did you look into fixing the subscription problem?

My Airbnb feed subscription works fine now, so many thanks for that - great service!

There is one problem though: I can't save the assigned colour of the imported events. I tried choosing several different colours and they all revert to black when saved.

Hello,

please describe a sequence of steps so that we could reproduce the issue. So far I was unable to, unfortunately.

If I go to Tools -> Options -> Subscriptions -> Airbnb, the third item from the top on the right of the window is a drop-down box called "Assigned color"

The default colour is black. If I change the colour, the change is not saved.

When I reopen the dialogue window after saving, the colour has changed back to black and the imported Airbnb items do not have the new colour I chose - they are shown in black text on a white background.

Hello,

I could not reproduce the issue on 8.0 Release Candidate. Could you please try there?: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=21021

I installed the RC but it didn't make any difference.

But then I had an idea: I deleted the subscription and created it again and now I can change the colour no problem.

I wondered whether the same method would work with v7.66, but unfortunately I can no longer open the database with v7.66 - there is an error message saying that the database requires v8... I hope I don't have any problems with the beta...

BTW, after deleting the subscription, EPIM wouldn't let me use the same URL for a new subscription until after I had closed and reopened the program.

There are issues again:

A few days ago the background colour disappeared on the imported Airbnb calendar items, and today they all have a red minus icon - not sure what that means.

I have sent you a PM with a screenshot.
