Class Booking in Calendars

A class booking is a one-to-many type calendar to host multiple invitees in a single booking. Class bookings are helpful when you want various invitees to attend a single event at once; some examples, but not limited to:

  • Webinars/Workshops
  • Training Sessions
  • Sports Events

In this article, you will learn the benefits of using the Class Booking Calendar and how to use it.

Why use Class Booking Calendars?

Using Class Calendars offers several benefits for managing events with multiple attendees, such as:

  • Efficient organization: Class Calendars simplify organizing and managing one-to-many events by allowing you to create a single booking that accommodates multiple invitees, streamlining the scheduling process.
  • Customizable capacity: You can set the number of spots per slot to control the class size and ensure an optimal learning or participation environment.
  • Centralized management: Class Calendars provide a centralized platform to manage bookings, cancellations, and rescheduling, making it easier for the appointment owner to oversee all aspects of the event.
  • Enhanced communication: Class Calendars facilitate better communication with attendees by providing a clear overview of event details, such as date, time, and location. This helps reduce confusion and the likelihood of no-shows.
  • Time-saving: By automating the booking process and providing options for attendees to cancel or reschedule their appointments, Class Calendars save time for both the organizer and the attendees.

Setting Up a Calendar For Class Bookings

Step 1: Add your Calendar

  • Head to Settings, then Calendars
  • Click on Create Calendar
  • Click on Select under Class Booking
  • Select a Team Member. At least one team member must be added before the calendar can be saved.

In the case of a class or a training session, the appointment owner would be the trainer. You can add the appointment owner by clicking Add User and selecting the User from the dropdown list.

Note: You can only have one Appointment Owner for a Class Booking Calendar.

  • Enter a Name for your Calendar
  • Enter a Calendar URL Slug

Note: This must be a unique slug (or path) that is not being used for another calendar

  • Enter a Meeting Duration and Seats per class

For your class booking, you can choose the number of attendees you'd like to have at each event.

For example, if you set the maximum number of seats per slot to 10, then up to 10 invitees can book a single time slot. Ten attendees can book a class or training session at 1:00 PM.

You can choose up to 9,999 attendees in a single slot; however, if you use a conferencing tool, the tool may have a different maximum attendee limit. For example, Zoom offers a maximum of 500 attendees for certain licenses. specific

  • Select your availability
  •  Provide a meeting location
  •  Click on Confirm

Rescheduling and Cancellation

To reschedule the meeting: 

  • Go to your Calendar
  • Select the meeting you want to reschedule
  • Click "Reschedule All," which would reschedule the appointment for all the attendees

To cancel a class booking:

  • Open the appointment 
  • Click "Cancel All."

To cancel or reschedule the appointment for a particular attendee, click on the options next to the attendee from the list to see the Cancel and Reschedule option, which would cancel or reschedule the appointment for that specific attendee.

Note: In case you have third-party calendars like Google Calendar or Outlook integrated with the CRM's calendar then in that case, the class booking would show each appointment separately in your   Google or Outlook calendar. 

Example: If you have created a class booking with a capacity of 5 attendees then on the Google or Outlook calendar they would appear as 5 separate events at the same time. 

The meeting location for Class Booking, as of now is restricted to Custom. This limitation will be removed shortly.

Seats in a Class Booking Calendar:

To show seats per slot for class bookings on a CRM booking widget, follow these steps:

  • Open the CRM platform and navigate to the calendar's settings.
  • Click on "Edit" to access advanced settings.
  • Find the section labeled "Customizations."

  • Locate the option "Show seats per slot" under "Calendar widget style."
  • Enable this option by toggling the switch to 'on.'
  • Save the changes.

Key Points:

1. The "Show seats per slot" feature is available exclusively for Class booking calendars and Neo widgets in the CRM.

2. Seats per slot are displayed on the booking widget only when the "Seats per class" setting is set to more than one.

3. By default, this setting is enabled for all new Class booking calendars.
