Your inbox is separated into four categories to help you keep track of your requests. Here, we'll go over how to access your inbox on your iOS or Android phone and what each category means.

Pending Requests are request that haven't been booked yet.

When an owner sends a request, it will appear here until it’s booked or archived. If you're unable to accommodate a booking, we always recommend promptly responding to the owner, then using the Decline and archive feature. Here’s how to decline a request:

  1. Open request.
  2. Tap Details in the upper right corner of screen.
  3. At the bottom of the conversation, select Decline and Archive.
  4. Select the reason for declining the request.

Upcoming Stays are requests you have booked that are current or upcoming. Once a booking is listed in this section of your inbox, that means that your client has paid for the request and that you have accepted the request as well.

Past Stays are past bookings that have already occurred.

Archived requests are requests you received that were never booked or bookings which were cancelled. If you need to unarchive a current or future request, here’s how:

  1. Open request.
  2. Tap Details in the upper right corner of screen.
  3. On iPhone, tap Unarchive. On Android, tap arrow icon.
