What is a course run?
Course runs or session/appointment series contain one or more sessions/apointments on which the course/class will take place. For each course, several course runs can be created.
Recurring and continuous courses/classes with and without a specific end
A recurring course has a fixed start date, usually several sessions/appointments until a fixed end date. For example, if you offer a Pilates course every Tuesday at 7 p.m. for 10 weeks from mid-June, this course is a recurring course/class with 10 sessions/appointments.
Continuous courses, on the other hand, are offered throughout the year with no fixed start or end date. Participants can therefore join and leave these courses at any time. This option is useful for courses whose content does not necessarily build on content from previous lessons/appointments.
Maximum number of participants/participant limit
You can define participant limits for each course run. If a participant limit has been defined and the maximum number of participants has been reached, the course or the sessions can no longer be booked, depending on the specified product and booking option.
Course Name for Course Runs
In order easily distinguish between the different course runs for a course, it is possible to give each course run its own abbreviation. This abbreviation will then appear both in the search and on booking confirmations etc.
When and how to use course iterations?
Course runs are series of sessions/appointments, i.e. appointments that are usually repeated at regular intervals. For example, a Pilates course, which takes place every Tuesday from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.
For example, if you want to offer a second course on Thursday morning in addition to the course on Tuesdays, you would create a second course run for the Thursday course.
