Add a brief description to your booking page intro so students know about any changes to how and when you’ll meet
Organize your dashboard
A new semester sometimes means new booking pages. Or maybe you recycle your pages from year to year. In either case, make sure you’ve saved the data you need from this last academic year.
If you don’t plan to use your booking pages over the break, or next year, you can set your pages offline. No one will be able to make a booking on it, but you’ll be able to refer back to it for settings or data whenever you need to.
💡 Pro tip: when you set a page offline, it stays on your dashboard. If you choose to “sort by status”, it will move to the bottom of the page and out of your way.
Move all your last year's booking pages to a separate folder on your dashboard so they are out of view for next year but easily findable again when you need the data.
You can also organize booking pages by department, student group, or any other way that makes sense. Folders make it easier to find and update booking pages for the upcoming semester.
Review your booking data
A bit of downtime between semesters gives you a chance to identify key trends from your college scheduling software.
Which days are most popular for students to book meetings?
When do your bookings come in: right after class? Just before exams? Evenings? Weekends?
What’s the most common reason students schedule time with you?
Taking time to discover these metrics can help you to better understand common student concerns and improve student support for the fall semester.
You’ll get a spreadsheet that includes all booking data - including any cancellations, rescheduled, and no-shows - on one page.
💡 Pro tip: save yourself this step next year and set up automatic data exports using Zapier or webhooks now. They’ll automatically pass the information into the systems you already use, every time a booking is made.
