Tiers: how to set up different timeslots for different parts of your school
It's common for larger schools to have rooms and resources that are available to different parts of the school - such as their senior and junior sections - or that can be booked for different period structures (timeslots). Tiers allow you to assign timeslots so that they are only available to one (or more) section, and rooms and resources so that they can only be booked in one (or more) section's timeslots.
How to set up tiers
In order to set up tiers, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know the number of tiers you require, and what they should be called.
How tiers work
Once tiers have been created for you your Timetable > Timeslots page displays an extra option which allows you to specify which Rooms and Resources in the school those slots should appear on in the Calendar and when making bookings.
You can do the same with resource categories through the Resources > Resource Categories page. The tier you set defines which timeslots show on the calendar when that category is selected, or are available when making a booking.
If your system uses our time-based booking functionality, only the slots in the assigned tier will show when you make a booking by timeslot.
