If you did not have any open house details updated at your feed source, you’re able to manually add this information to your listing. Your feed will override the information you manually input if there is conflicting data in the feed. 

For example: If you manually edit the open house details to be September 1, 2:00 pm-4:00 pm, but your feed is sending September 1, 1:00 pm-5:00 pm, the listing will continue to revert back to what is entered in the feed.
