    • The system will restrict bookings to this amount, though more can be added to the waiting list.

    • The number of swimmers required for the class to break-even

    • This is a manual calculation for you to add

Other Options

Monthly Payments

  • Enabling this will give Customers the option to sign up for the Monthly Plan when booking

Allow Individual Lesson Bookings

  • Enabling this allows the Customer to select individual lessons when booking, instead of selecting a start date for an ongoing place

Please Note: Franscape will not allow you to enable both Monthly Payments and Allow Individual Lesson Bookings, as the Monthly Plan is only suitable for ongoing places.

Trials Enabled

  • Enabling this reveals the Trial booking settings for the Class
  • Adding these settings allows the Customer to book trial lessons for the class

Trial Settings

If you enable Trials, you will be presented with 3 further settings:

Maximum Number of Trials Per Consumer

  • Here you set the maximum number of lessons per Consumer that can be booked at one time
  • The system ensures that these lessons must be consecutive (if possible) when booked

Maximum Number of Trial Consumers Per Lesson

  • Here you set the maximum number of trial Consumers allowed in each lesson

Price Override Per Lesson

  • Here you can set the price per lesson for trial bookings
  • The default setting is the Pay in Advance lesson price
