Search History Feature - how to manage this feature

Updated 1 week ago by Taylor McManus

This feature allows you to gather information specific to how visitors are searching the website, then store it in the booking engine admin for future reference. The feature helps to determine the top searched amenities, location or bedrooms on the site are, as well as what the booking window dates that guests are searching. 

Log into the Booking Engine Admin - ex - https://websiteURL.com/vacation-rentals/admin

  • Using the "From" and "To" fields, enter the dates to be searched
  • Select the rows per page in the drop down options (recommended 100)
  • Select the "Refresh" button (see screenshot below)
