A workshop is an event that takes place in a very short period of time and whose participation is usually very limited. An example would be a "massages for beginners" workshop, which takes place over several hours on a weekend.
1. Click on the + button on the upper right corner of your dashboard (directly next to the search bar)
2. Select New event
3. A new window opens up. Enter the necessary details, such as the name of the event, whether it is public or private, as well as the colour, the trainer and a description.
It is important that you select Workshop under "Type".
4. Open the Event Schedule tab: here you can choose when the class takes place by clicking on "Add another series or event".
If this workshop only takes place on one day or one weekend, you can select "No repeat" under "Frequency".
5. Define the booking details e.g.:
- The maximum number of participants
- Choose if you want to set up a waiting list if the class is fully booked
- Define the booking window (the date from which the event can be booked/can no longer be booked)
- Choose if you want to offer online cancellation options (with the possibility to give a refund in case of cancellation within the policy)
6. Define the booking rules.
Note: In contrast to classes, closed courses or individual appointments, a total price is charged for workshops. This means that this workshop cannot be booked using a 10-session card or membership.
In this case, the booking rules must be approached a little differently. The workshop will not be assigned to a booking group, but will be linked directly to the corresponding course/workshop product.
But: If you still want your customers to be able to book the workshop using a 10-session card or a contract and take part, you can assign it to the correct booking group in the workshop booking rules so that it is linked to the right products.
7. Click Confirm to save your event.
The workshop you have created will now be shown under the "Events" menu item in the course plan.
