Most (but not all) of the information from these fields is shown on the activity's display in the store. Clients may click 'More information' to view additional details.
Category, Subcategory and Name of the activity
Clients select activities in the store by drilling down 4 levels - the Program, followed by the Category, Subcategory and the Name of the activity. To ensure you've labeled the levels clearly, try reading it like a sentence (these are just suggestions):
I want to enroll my child in Recreational Gym (Category) for beginners (Subcategory) on Saturday at 9am (Name of the activity).
I wish to register to Dance (Category) for girls (Subcategory) every Monday at 6pm (Name of the activity). Keep in mind these are suggestions. You ultimately decide how to establish your structure.
Please note that there is a 100 character limit for the name of your activity.
Billing label (optional)
The billing label appears on the client's invoice. If this field is left blank, the program, category and subcategory names show on the invoice. Otherwise, you can replace it with a simpler billing label.
Ledger codes group items together in your financial reports. A ledger code must be assigned to every item in your store. Clients can't see ledger codes.
Tags are keywords that clients can use to search for items in your store.

Notes are visible when clients view 'More information' and lets you add more activity information (ex: what to bring). You can display the note on the client's invoice.
Normal means clients can see your activity in the store (provided the program is also visible).
Hidden allows administrators only to view the activity and make registrations.
Cancelled means clients can see the activity in the store, but it's labelled as 'cancelled' and can't accept registrations.
If the activity (or program) is Hidden, send this link to clients so they can register.

📅 Schedule & Resources

+ Add your activity's schedule(s). If the activity has multiple recurrence patterns (i.e., say it occurs every Tuesday, and also every two weeks on Saturday), you may want to create more than one schedule. Click here to learn more about scheduling activities.
The number of times the activity occurs, based on its schedule. You can modify specific occurrences (as opposed to modifying an entire schedule).
You can opt to email clients a calendar invitation once they've registered. There's a second calendar option that emails a calendar invitation to staff assigned to the activity. Staff receive the invitation after the first client registers to the activity.
The invitation takes into account the activity's Start date. This means if the activity starts on Monday October 4th but occurs every Friday starting on October 8th, the calendar invitation captures the October 4th start date.
Holidays and closed days created in the Account>Calendar subtab are incorporated in your schedule. Choose if the activity takes place on those days. This section also allows you to add schedule and/or staff details in the store, or the client's invoice.
A session activity can occur on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis, over a set period of time. When clients register, they're enrolling to every occurrence within the session.

Price of activity
How much does your activity cost in $ for the whole session?
Pro Rata (optional)
If a client registers to an activity after its start date, the cost is prorated based on how many activity occurrences remain in the session. You can set a minimum price clients need to pay and choose if eligible discounts can be applied on a prorated price.
Indicate if a maximum number of activity session spots are available. If you also offer drop-in spots (in the Drop-ins section), they're added to the total number of spots available. Say you have 10 session spots and 15 daily drop-in spots, you may find yourself with up to 25 participants attending class on a given day! If session spots are filled, no one else can register for the session. If drop-in spots are filled for the day, no one else can drop-in.
Click here to learn more about how spots are displayed in the store.
A drop-in activity can occur on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis, over a set period of time. When clients register, they're enrolling in a single activity occurrence.
Check this box to activate selling this activity as a drop-in to allow clients to register to the activity on a specific calendar day. You can offer an activity as a session and a drop-in.
Set the cost for a drop-in class. If you offer Multipasses, you can restrict enrollment to clients with an eligible Multipass.
If specified, this number is added to the total number of available spots.
Decide how long before the beginning of each drop-in can a client register. Clients are usually unable to cancel a class themselves, but you can allow clients to cancel a drop-in from their user account (if they used a Multipass to register).
