Trials allow your potential customers to book trial lessons via a quick and simple process.

How to set trials up?


Head to Classes > Trials:

There, click on the Settings tab:

And enable trials:

Once you enable the feature, a link will appear - it leads to a page where a potential customer can book a trial lesson, choosing among all the classes you offer for trials.

On the same page, you can also select how many trialing students per class you'd like to have, and whether you allow trial registrations in case a class is already filled to its maximum capacity:

You can also limit trials for class or for a student on your class trials page, just enable this option in general Trial settings:

Then go to the class > Trials (Class tab) and enter your trial limits here:


How to enable trials for classes?

New classes:

When you create a new class, you can make it available for trial lessons by ticking the box 'Allow lesson trials' under the class details:


Existing classes:
You can enable trials for classes via group action, just open the general classes list, select all classes or only those you'd like to make available for trials:

And then in 'Group actions' pick 'Enable Trial Lessons':

OR head to a class you'd like to make available for trials. Click on the class, and then on the Trials tab:

Then tick the box "Allow trial lessons":

After that, the class will become available for trial bookings. If you offer paid trial lessons follow our Paid Trials guide.

At this point, the system also generates a link for this class, which leads to booking trials for this specific class.

How does it look for customers?

To check this, click the link in Classes > Trials. It will look something like app.classmanager.com/trial/name-of-your-school and lead to a page with all the classes available for trial bookings:

Customers can select what class they want to book a trial in, and click on that class. There, they will see all the details about it, and will be able to select the day & time they want for their student to attend:

If a class has age restrictions, a customer will need to put in their student's DOB.

After they click Register, they are redirected to a page where they have to fill out their contact details. If they have already stated the student's age, it will be copied there automatically:

If trial lessons have a price set for them, a customer is redirected to the payment page:

Once they pay - or if the class is free, this step is skipped whatsoever - they will see a message of their successful registration.
