Just as you can mark a couple as 'booked', a couple can mark vendors as 'hired'. It is possible that couples may mark a vendor as 'hired' thinking they are bookmarking or favoriting the vendor for easy access to the listing later.
Depending on your setting preference for this feature, you will get one of two emails from us each time someone marked you as "booked":
If the setting is enabled (which yours is), your calendar will be automatically updated to show unavailable on that date (you can still choose to go in and manually change it back to available if needed).
If the setting is disabled this will prevent the "user marked bookings" from affecting your availability calendar. You will still receive the email stating that a couple marked you as booked, but that date will still be available on your calendar unless you manually go in and mark yourself unavailable. You can always delete the user marked booking if you, in fact, have not confirmed this date with them.
If you would like to manage your calendar yourself, we recommend disabling the automatic updates. Be sure to mark at least one future date 'unavailable' to guarantee you will always display when couples search for vendors by date.
You can disable the Automatic Updates feature. To do this, please follow the steps below:
- Log in to your WeddingWire account at www.WeddingPro.com
- Click the Storefront icon on the top navigation bar
- Click ‘Availability’ from the left side of the screen
- Click ‘Settings’ in the top, right corner of the screen
- Under the Automatic Updates section, select No
- Click 'Save'
