Schedule Management

A "schedule" in WCONLINE® both displays availability at your center and also provides requirements and rules for appointment-making.

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, 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.

Use the links below each schedule's name to open the Master Appointment Report, limited automatically to the report you are looking for. Or use the "schedule" link to go to that schedule.
