Who can use this feature?
A course is a group-based service that is scheduled with a specific start and end date. Clients are required to pay the full enrollment fee in advance. Once the enrollment fee is paid, the client will be automatically enrolled in every event in the series. Courses cannot be paid for with a pass or plan and courses do not allow for drop-ins or makeups. Common uses include boot camps, camps, events, and workshops.
Example: Weekly Camp is scheduled Monday- Friday at 9am-3pm and clients must pay $250 to enroll in all 5 days.

Clients cannot enroll in or cancel part of a course
Courses work well if all clients must always enroll in the entire series and pay the entire fee upfront. Courses do not work well if you allow clients to make up a missed session, cancel one session, attend one session or part of the series, or purchase part of the series. If you do allow clients to makeup canceled sessions or enroll in individual sessions, you may wish to consider creating a class with bulk enrollment.
