The Class Listings Tables provide your customers with real-time, dynamic listings of your class schedule, giving them the information that they need in order to make an informed decision to register. These tables are embedded directly onto your webpages, and you control what information is displayed. This is a valuable feature because your customers can view your class data without ever leaving your website.

Class Listings are the perfect way to showcase your available classes, schedules, and information in an organized, user-friendly manner. Your customers will LOVE the ease with which they can quickly find the class they need. They simply click the "Register" link beside the class they want - which launches your custom Registration Form - with their class selection pre-filled in! The standard table layout is shown here, and you will learn how to hide columns, filter by location, session, and/or categories, sort classes, and much more!
Requirements and Getting Started
Ensure classes are set-up properly:
For a class to properly display on your website, it should have the following completed on the CLASS page in your database.
- Status = Active or Future (not Completed, Terminated, or Inactive)
- Allow Web Registration = YES (so class will show in the Reg form Class Search)
- Display on Website = YES (so class will show in the Class Listings Table)
- Registration Start Date. The day you want to open online registration; if left blank, it is opened immediately. (If future dated, the live "Register" link will not display until midnight Eastern Time of that date).
- Class Start and End Date. The first and last day of the class. If the class is perpetual, you may leave the End Date blank.
- Tuition. If you want Jackrabbit to post tuition during online registration, you must have the tuition fee on the class page.
- Register links. If you want the live "Register" links to display in the tables, make sure "Show Register links in Listings" is set to YES (in Tools>Website Registration>Settings).
Ensure your Registration Form is ready to use:
Helpful Hint: consider using the Global Edit in EDIT ALL CLASSES to quickly update a large group of classes
The Registration Form set-up should be completed, including the notifications, legalese, and payment requirements. (Registration Form set-up instructions are found in this website under the Registration Form tab). When your customer chooses a class out of your table, and clicks the live "Register" link, the Registration Form pops up and the customer completes the form and submits it. Therefore, the form must be set-up and ready to use.
Other Decisions - Very Important!:
On the Tools>Website Registration>Settings page, there are a few other issues you should establish beforehand.
1) If you do NOT want live Register links available in the left column, set the "Show Register Links" to NO. (some organizations want to use the Class Listings to display the data only and do not want to use the online registration capabilities)
2) If you want FULL classes shown in the tables, set the "Show Full/Completed classes on Website?" to YES. (they will not have a live Register link, as they are unavailable for enrollment)
3) If you do show full classes and would like to allow students to get on the Wait List, set the "Allow Waitlist when Class Full" to YES.
4) If you want waitlisted students and/or future enrolled students in your database to affect the number of online openings available (keep class closed for new online enrollees because of waitlisters and future enrollees), make sure the "Should Waitlist affect Openings?" and "Should Future Enrollments affect Openings?" are set to YES.
5) If you plan to add (show) the Columns of your Categories, consider re-labeling them to a more descriptive, meaningful name.
