The Scheduling feature on Acceptd is broken into three levels: Schedules, Sessions, and Timeslots. This guide will help you understand how each level functions, so you can build the perfect schedule for you & your applicants' needs!
Schedules: Schedules keep everything organized at the highest level. It allows you to group together Sessions and even color code them for easy reference and organization. Examples of schedule names include: Drama Auditions, Musical Theatre, Chicago Unified Audition, On-Campus Interview, Bassoon Auditions. Applicants can only choose one timeslot per Schedule.
Sessions: Sessions divide your schedule by date, or in some cases, morning and afternoon. Sessions are set up to cover a window of time, 11am-1pm for example. Each session has set timeslot lengths, break lengths, and timeslot capacity if you're scheduling more than 1 applicant per timeslot.
Timeslots: Timeslots provide you with the individual times that an applicant can be scheduled. Applicants can choose their own timeslot or the organization can schedule them.
