You will need a Program with a Class inside of it with a Capacity of at least (1) one in order to open enrollment.

While creating Classes is easy to do, there are some nuances to the options that you should be aware of. The table below demonstrates how some settings are inherited from the Program or need to be set within the Class directly depending on the Enrollment Model you've selected for a given Program.

Additionally, there are two types of Classes and additional settings you'll want to be aware of.

  1. Single Class: a unique Class that meets however many times you set on the calendar. When people enroll in this Class, it is expected that they will attend on every date the Class meets.

  2. Series: a unique Class that meets once on each date set on the calendar. When people enroll in this Class, it is expected that they will attend only on those dates they select.

You are presented with the option of choosing your Class Type only when you Set days/dates when the Class occurs under Step 4 - "When Class Happens."

To create a Class, navigate to the Classes page (this may be called something else if you've customized it, i.e., Sessions, Groups, etc.).

Step 1 - Add Class

Next, select the Program to which you want to add a Class. Click the Add Class button on the right.

Step 2 - Class Details

Next, you'll get a little drawer on the right side where you can set up the details of the Class, including the class Name, Instructor(s), Capacity, and more.

Here, you will enter the Class name and select the Instructors for the Class. Check out this support article if you need to know how to add an Instructor. Then enter the maximum number of Enrollees the Class can have under "Capacity."
