Scheduling Class Sessions

You can schedule multiple sessions for each class. A session is the period of time that the room and the instructor are engaged for a particular training event. A single class can have multiple sessions that can span various days. Similarly, a one-day class can have two sessions, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Setup of sessions is not required for a training class unless the added scheduling flexibility is needed.

Before you schedule class sessions, define the relevant class information in the Classes view. For more information, see Scheduling Classes.

This task is a step in Process of Setting Up Class Schedules and Sessions.

To schedule class sessions for a class

  1. Navigate to the Class Details view, and select the class for which you want to schedule sessions.
  2. Click the Sessions view tab, and in the Sessions list, create a new record.
  3. In the session record, enter Start Time and End Time values for the session.
  4. In the Classes list, click Create Sessions.

    Class sessions are created automatically, and class values are copied to session records.

    If desired, use the Sessions view to change individual values for each session, for example location, classroom, start and end times, instructors, and so on.

    The following table describes how class times are created if they are a range of hours on the same day, a range of days, or if the location time zone is different from the administrator's time zone.


    Class times are a range of hours on the same day, such as 9:00 A.M to 5:00 P.M.

    The session is created with the same time range.

    Class times are a range of days, such as Monday 3:00 to Friday 2:00.

    The session is created with start and end time using the following exception values:

    • M 3:00 P.M.-11:59 P.M.
    • T 3:00 P.M.-11:59 P.M.
    • W 3:00 P.M.-11:59 P.M.
    • R 3:00 P.M.-11:59 P.M.
    • F 12:00 A.M.-2:00 P.M.

    The time zone of the location is different from the time zone of the administrator who is creating the session.

    The values are adjusted to reflect those in the location time zone.
