When you sync your rental calendar to TurnoverBnB, the system will import your bookings and automatically generate cleaning projects associated with the dates you have guests checking out of your property. The projects are the cleaning appointments in your TurnoverBnB calendar that you can share with your cleaners so they know the dates you need to have your property cleaned on. If you need help syncing a calendar, please check out the following guides:

Syncing a Rental Calendar (via iCal)

Syncing a rental calendar (via API Integration)

Even so, there may be occasions when the projects generated by the system do not cover all of the situations or dates you need a cleaning project for. In this case, you might need to create a cleaning project manually. 


How to manually add a new project to your schedule 

To manually add a project, click on the "add special project" button located at the top left of the Schedule page:

(You must be logged in to your host account for the button above to work)

You can also do this from the List page by clicking on the "Add Special Project" button also located at the top right of the page like so:

(You must be logged in to your host account for the button above to work)

Whichever screen you click on this button from, it will take you to the "Add Special Project" screen, where you must select the project's property (highlighted in red below).

You can also adjust the project's date and time, cleaning price in the "cleaning price field" (remember to set whether it is an hourly or flat rate, too), as well as a few other options, explained below.

Select a checklist (highlighted in blue): You can select one of your checklists to show for this specific property. Click the selected checklist in the drop down menu to remove the associated checklist, or simply select another one.

Same Day Cleaning Window (highlighted in pink): You can use this option to extend the project's cleaning window. When you uncheck the box for the same day cleaning window, you will be able to select another date to be this project's end date, which means this project will be extended. Your cleaner will have an extended window of time that they can start and complete this project.

Publish Project (highlighted in yellow):
When enabled, this means that this project will be published to your enabled cleaners as soon as you save it. If disabled, it will remain hidden to your cleaners, even after it is saved, until you publish it manually. If you'd like to know more, please check out the following guide: Publishing and unpublishing projects

Restrict to Specific Cleaners (highlighted in green):
You can check this box to select a specific cleaner to restrict this project to. This means that this project will be available only to them and will not show up on other cleaners' schedules besides the ones you select. This does not mean that the selected cleaner will be assigned to the project, and rather that only they will be able to accept it.
Click on the "restrict to specific cleaners box" and then select a cleaner from the "available to" field (you can select multiple cleaners):

Once you're done specifying your new project, make sure to click on the "save" button at the bottom right, so that your new project is added to your schedule.
