Hey, Mews Community! 😉

We've been getting some questions about Mews' editable history windows, so we wanted to provide a handy summary of how to make the most of them. These windows determine how far back in time you can modify reservations, ensuring you have full control over your property's operations. Here's what you need to know:

The Editable History Window 

  • The editable history window in Mews lets you check guests in with a date in the past.
  • Note: Mews considers the check-in time displayed in each booking, not the check-in time in your property's General settings.

The Operational vs. The Accounting Editable History Window

  • Mews offers two types of editable history windows: one for accounting and one for operations.
  • The Accounting window is stricter, limiting changes to bill items to within one day.
  • The Operational window is more relaxed, allowing actions like canceling a house use up to five days ago.

Setting Up the Accounting Editable History Window

  1. Go to the main menu > Settings > Property > Finance.
  2. Select "Accounting configuration" from the drop-down.
  3. Set the Accounting editable history window duration, with a maximum of 7 days.
  4. Click "Save."

Setting Up the Operational Editable History Window

  1. Go to the main menu > Settings > Property.
  2. In the General settings section, find "Operational editable history window."
  3. Set the duration, with a maximum of 7 days. Consider your check-in time.
  4. Click "Save."


  • If you encounter a reservation failure due to nights or orders in the past, review the Operational and Accounting editable history windows.
  • Be mindful of your check-in time when configuring editable history windows. The lower time takes precedence if the Accounting and Operational windows are set differently.

Don't miss out on the flexibility and efficiency that Mews' editable history windows offer. Make reservations management a breeze!
