A "schedule" in WCONLINE displays availability at your center. Administrators can set options that apply to each schedule--such as the numbers of appointments students can make per day and per week, the times and time increments that should be displayed on the schedule view, and customized appointment and reminder emails.
You will see your schedule names in drop-down menus at the top of the schedule view and in reports. Your students will use the schedule name or names to choose the center or type of tutoring, advising, testing, etc., and then make appointments on that schedule. You can run reports by schedule by selecting a schedule to see only the data on that schedule. For example, if you have a writing center, a math center, and an advising center, each one would logically be a schedule, because students would select a name based on, "I need help with..." (writing vs. math vs. advising). And, you might check System Statistics for your whole site, for only the math center, for sophomores visiting the math center, etc.
If you are setting up a new schedule, start in Schedule Management. Add the schedule's name and read through the options and limits to decide which you would like to use, and personalize your emails.
In the list of schedules in Schedule Management, use the links below each schedule's name to open the Master Listings Report, and also use options at the top to add new schedules or set holidays and closed days.
