    Hi'

    You can use the iCal feature to have the calendar available in Outlook and Windows Live - also Google Calendar etc.
    AirBNB does not allow for import of external data. We have an overview of all Portals and their features:
    https://support.kigo.net/entries/23581311-Partners-connection-status (https://support.kigo.net/entries/23581311-Partners-connection-status)

    The iCal feature is live updated. Any change in the calendar will trigger an updated version. You may set your calendar refresh interval to update as often as you like.

    Best Regards,
    Kigo Support Team
