1. Setting your reminders and updates
Go to Account Settings>Email to subscribe and get reminders for upcoming sessions, scheduling change updates such as when appointments are reserved, and an itinerary of events.
2. Calendar sync
You can set up your personal calendar to subscribe to upcoming sessions in Student Connect. Go to Account Settings>Personal Calendar to get the calendar link to enter into your calendar.
Supported calendar applications include Apple iPad / iPhone Calendar, Evolution, Google Calendar, One Calendar for Windows 10 (Account type: WebCal), Mozilla Thunderbird (with Lightning), Outlook for Windows (Home -> Add Calendar -> From Internet), Outlook.com, Zoho Calendar, and any other application which has subscription support for iCalendar / ICS / WebCal. Please note several applications claim to have support, but they do not work, such as AOL Calendar, KOrganizer, and Yahoo! Mail.
When you click on the "Personal Calendar" tab on the navigation bar, you will be presented with a link to a personal iCalendar / ICS / WebCal feed.
Paste this link into your calendar software subscription section. It is important to subscribe instead of performing a one-time import, as the feed of your upcoming sessions changes over time.
3. Reserving the appointment slots
A teacher or admin can reserve the slots on behalf of a student. Students may be able to reserve their own appointments if this function is enabled by the admin in the Student Connect platform settings. If this option is available, click on "Book Appointments with" to choose the teacher with whom you wish to book the appointment.
In the chosen slot, enter the appointment topic and a summary of the purpose for the appointment.
The session will be available for the teacher and that student only. Other students will not be able to see this booked appointment. They will just see that this slot has been taken.
This is the student view. The students can see the session scheduled for them (1) but not for others (2).
