In this guide we'll cover:
How to add an instructor to your staff
Instructors can be added from Staff >> Click the 'Add a Staff member' button:
First, you’ll need to enter the instructor's name and email address.
Then, select whether the user is an admin or has limited permissions. When you select a permissions-based user account, a list of all available permissions will cascade down below.
Tick the 'Instructor' option. When you do this, an extra set of permissions will appear below. These will allow you to define which classes the instructor has access to - all or just the ones they teach.
You can also add a description and a photo if desired.
To add a photo, click 'Choose a File' to upload an image from your computer, import from a URL, or take a photo using your device camera. You will also be able to crop the image as needed.
Select all applicable permissions. The most commonly used permission for instructors is 'Manage Sessions'. This will allow you to define which classes the instructor has access to - all or just the ones they teach.
For example, it may be that you only want this instructor to manage sessions and attendances on sessions they instruct (see below).
Then, click 'Create'.
After you've created the instructor's account, an automatic email will be sent to their email address with an invitation link. They will need to click this link in order to be able to access their account.
Note. All staff accounts can be edited at any time from Staff >> click 'Options' button next to the desired staff member name. For more information on this topic, please visit this guide.

How to add an instructor to an Appointment Type or a scheduled Appointment
How to add an instructor to an Appointment Type
When should you add an instructor to an Appointment Type? A few examples: you've hired a new coach who will be available for PT sessions on Mondays and Thursdays from 9:00 am until 2:00 pm; you want to make yourself available for consultations on Fridays, etc.
First, you'll need to set the instructor's availability. To do this, see Manage instructor availability for appointments.
How to add an instructor to a scheduled Appointment
From time to time you may need to edit an appointment that's already been scheduled to change the coach who will be in charge of the session.
To do this, see Editing an appointment.
How to add an instructor to a new or existing Course
You can add an instructor to a new course as you're scheduling a course, or you can add an instructor to an existing course by editing the course from Courses >> Course Types >> click 'Manage course' next to the desired course >> click 'Edit sessions'.
