Scheduling for Lessons and Rotating Teachers--One Class

John Whited 1 month ago updated by Arthur Lawson (Answers in Genesis - Web Support Analyst) 4 weeks ago 1

I am coordinating one class with rotating teachers.  I want teachers to only receive emails for their specific lessons, not every week.  I want to be able to assign specific teachers to specific lessons.  

We are using this for what we call Children's Church--which occurs in parallel with our normal Worship.  Each week--the teacher rotates.  How can we make this work that way I'd like it to work.

Hi John,

Thanks for your feedback! Unfortunately, ABC Digital does not currently support assigning teachers to specific lessons. You can either have a single teacher assigned to a class or multiple teachers assigned to it, but for individual lessons, we only support substitute teachers. That's intended as a one-off fill-in role, so it doesn't really fit your use case. Emails will send to each teacher each week by default, but those can be turned off in the email settings.

Instead, I'd suggest adding all your teachers to the class and then set up a separate shared spreadsheet so you can keep track of which teacher is teaching each week. I agree with you that would be a big improvement to the system and I'll pass on your request to our developers so they're aware, but I'm not able to promise anything.

Blessings,

Arthur
