Scheduling a large number of recurring class series can feel like a redundant task. Especially if you have many variations of the same class type: think 8 different recurring Vinyasa class series taught by 5 different teachers at 2 different locations.

Thats a lot of scheduling: naming and describing each of these 8 recurring series, then filling out a full class form for each one.

Enter Class Templates, which allow you to:

  • save a class name and description as a template

  • reuse that template every time you need to schedule a variation of that class, reducing your clicks down to just these required fields:

    • Class duration

    • Teacher

    • Location

    • Start date/time

    • Weeks to schedule in advance

  • make changes from one place to all series of classes that were created from that template, by editing the template

To create a template, and a recurring series from that template, click Classes > Schedule > New Class

Click Classes > Schedule > New class

Click Recurring Class > Choose a template or create a new one. (note: if you are choosing an existing template to work with, make sure its an 'in-person' template)

If you're creating a new template, for the location, choose 'In person' for the location.

Once a template has been created, create a recurring new class.

Then select a teacher, location.

Then choose the start date, start time, and end date (if applicable) -- leaving it means it will schedule indefinitely). Choose the days in between each class (typically 7)

For the 'Number of classes to display in your dashboard in advance,' if you put a 3 here and leave the following field (for customers blank), Momence will schedule this class 3 weeks out for both your staff and your customers.

Only fill out the customer field if you'd like this number to be less than what your staff sees. This will manifest the difference in classes in draft form. (Ie. if you put 5 up top and 3 down below, the remaining 2 will show as drafts internally until its time for them to be scheduled.)

To add another day of the week that this class repeats (ie. Tuesdays and Thursdays), click Add interval. Click Create when finished.
