Schedulista's Class feature is perfect for services with multiple attendees. Classes can be added directly to your calendar on specific dates and times to make them available or offered whenever you have availability on your schedule.

Once you've created a class or event service, the two methods to determine when classes or events are available on your schedule provide a lot of flexibility.

Method 1: Adding classes or events directly to your calendar

This is the default method for making classes available.

In contrast to the frequency of standard one-on-one appointment scheduling, empty classes and events must be added directly to your calendar on specific dates and times to make them available to clients to book through the online scheduler.

You can also add a series of repeating classes to quickly add them to your calendar.

With the class or event, multiple clients will be able to book for the same time until the max capacity you've set is filled.

(1) Go to the Calendar tab

(2) Click the date & time slot you’d like to offer a class or event 

(3) In the New Appointment dialog, select the class from the Service drop down list

(4) The Max Capacity for your class or event will auto-fill based on your class service settings. You can adjust the capacity for the specific class or event you are adding without affecting your regular settings, if needed.

(5) Click Save

Method 2: Offering classes whenever you have availability on your schedule

If you don't need to set specific dates & times, this second option allows you to make classes available whenever you have time on your schedule, similar to the standard one-on-one appointment scheduling.

Appointment times for classes will be based on:

  • your set work hours
  • your Available Appointment Times settings (scheduling interval or specific appointment times)
  • any appointments already booked on your schedule, including personal appointments

For example, if your work hours are 9am to 5pm and your appointment times show every 1 hour, clients would see times for classes at 9:00, 10:00, 11:00, 12:00, etc.  If an appointment is already booked at 10am, clients would see times for classes at 9:00, 11:00, 12:00, etc.

With the class or event, multiple clients will be able to book for the same time until the max capacity you've set is filled.

(1) Go to Settings > Services / Classes / Events 

(2a) Click Edit next to an existing service; or

(2b) Click Add Service to create a new service

(3) Scroll down to the Class section

(4) Click the No button to change it to Yes

(5) Set the Max capacity of the class

(6) Check the box next to Also offer this class whenever you have availability on your schedule

(7) Click Save at the bottom of the page

Clients will see available class times in the same fashion as standard one-on-one appointment times.

You can further define your class availability by setting specific appointment times for your class service.
