Rental Availability Calendar

If your MLS uses a rental availability calendar, the following functions will be available in Flexmls. The rental availability calendar allows you to view and change the available dates for a rental property in a calendar format.

Use the Change Listing Page to Change Available Dates

If available in your MLS, a link labeled Rental Availability Calendar appears under the Scheduled Marketing Activities header on the Change Listing page for a rental property. Click the link to change the rental availability dates.
