We've found that gyms usually have one of three approaches to scheduling coaches. WODHOPPER is perfectly suited for each approach to make scheduling easy!
This is the most common and easiest approach. Using "Gym Settings" > "Weekly Schedule," you set up your standard coaching schedule. Then, you can make individual changes to the schedule to override the weekly defaults as needed.
You can also make "game time" changes right from the check-in screen.
In this case, your schedule changes every 3-6 weeks. We most often see this case when coaches have other shift jobs (such as firefighters) whose schedules change from week to week. In this case, coaches use a WODHOPPER login from their phone. Coaches can indicate their typical availability and indicate exceptions, or they can input their availability for each class individually.
WODHOPPER provides a graphical view of which coaches are available and scheduled for each class to easily set your schedule in advance.
Coaches can see the classes they have been scheduled for via their WODHOPPER login
In this process, a gym manager usually fills the coaching schedule for some of the classes. But some classes are left open, without a coach. Any gaps in the schedule will be available for coaches to "claim" on a first-come-first-serve basis. The gym manager can keep an eye on whether any classes are still requiring a coach.
The key difference is you make these changes on the Class Occurrences screen, rather than the Weekly Schedule.
In this approach, coaches will have first dibs to pick classes. The gym manager will fill in blanks and make final adjustments. Also shows settings for how/if coaches appear on the schedule.
