Setting a Class Meeting Schedule
You can see and edit all class meetings—past and future, published or not—on the section calendar. This makes it easy to confirm that classes are scheduled as expected for the entire term.
Section Calendar Overview
To find the calendar, go to the section page and click “Edit Section.”
Class meetings are represented by colored circles on the calendar:
Green: Class meetings with a published lesson
Gray: Class meetings whose lesson plan is not yet published. These class meetings are not visible to participants
Blue: Optional class meetings (no lesson plan will be used and no attendance will be taken)
Class meetings can be added, edited, and removed directly from the calendar. You can change future class meeting times, regardless of the publication status of the associated lesson plan. Changes to the section start date and the section meeting pattern will cause future classes to be rescheduled.
For ease of scheduling, all dates and times on the section edit page are displayed in the timezone of the section. The time zone will be displayed on the class meeting if you hover over the time.
Elsewhere on Forum, class times and dates are displayed in your computer's local time zone.
How do I change the meeting times for all classes in a section?
To update the meeting times for all class meetings in the section, you can simply change the date and time fields of each Section Meeting. Be sure to scroll down and click Save to apply these changes.
If Forum detects there are some class meetings that have been manually moved to a custom time from the originally set Section Meeting times, it will present the below alert when you click Save. The alert will list the classes that were moved from the original Section Meeting time.
Choose Update All to update all class meetings, including the class meetings moved from the originally scheduled time (listed in the alert), to the new Section Meeting time.
Choose Keep These Times to update all class meetings except for the meetings listed in the alert to the new Section Meeting time.
How do I change the meeting length for all classes in a section?
To update the class meeting lengths for all class meetings in the section, you can simply change the Class Length (Minutes) field. Be sure to click Save to apply these changes.
These changes will apply to all future class meetings in the section.
