[New feature] Video courses
Find out to setup your video courses here
What is this?
Many of us have taken an online video course at one time or another.
Simply put, these are a list of pre-recorded videos laid out in a sequential manner for us to consume and learn from, at our own convenience and pace.
Ideally speaking, as an online teacher, you should also be able to do the same thing…with your class and workshop recordings.
You can now easily create your own video courses as well…directly from your online class recordings!
Here are some examples of the kinds of courses you can create:
1. Introductory courses
2. Deep dive into specific topics
3. Self-practice bundles
The best part? All of the plans & pricing options that work for your live classes, are also now available to you for your video courses.
So, you can also make this a new source of passive income.

[New feature] Self-checkout for Personal Classes
Find out how to set up and enable self-checkout and setup plans/pricing here: https://practicenow.crisp.help/en/category/personal-classes-1y5nkl6/
What is this?
Your students can now browse and purchase personal class plans just like group classes or workshops.
…you had to create a manual subscription every time a student wanted to buy or renew a personal class subscription.
Not anymore. You can publish your personal class fees online and allow students to check out whatever plan suits them best. See the screenshot below.
This should save you a ton of time and repetitive communication with personal class students.
Additional setting for toggling “No-show” penalty
Until today, whenever there was a no-show from a personal class student, the system would automatically deduct a check-in for that student – as a penalty.
Starting today, you can choose to turn off this option from here: Classes -> Settings -> Online Personal Classes

[New feature] End dates for class schedule
Set the end date from here: Classes -> Upcoming classes -> Create Class -> New field below the Weekly Schedule section
What is this?
Let’s say, you have a 3-day workshop this week on Mon, Wed and Fri @ from 2pm to 4pm.
You want the schedule to end on Fri. And not repeat again starting next Monday.
..that wasn’t easy. After adding an endless recurring schedule, you would then need to manually delete all of the classes after the 3rd one.
But not anymore. Just mention the “End date” of your schedule in the new field. And it’s done in one shot.
A few more precious minutes saved for you.
What about Group and Personal classes?
Yep. It works for both of those cases as well. 👍

[New feature] Auto-check-ins for Video recordings
Turn this on from here: Classes -> Zoom recording settings -> Zoom Cloud Recordings: Auto-Checkin
Note: This is only valid for Zoom. Skip this if you’re on Google Meet.
What is this?
Let’s say, I didn’t attend this morning’s class. But I watched the recording, a few hours later.
Do you think that should still count as a class check-in? If yes, you’re in luck! Just turn on the above setting.
As a student, I will then see a popup, telling me that a check-in will be added when I watch a recording.
Here’s how the popup looks for me, as a student (mock example):
…this was quite painful. You had to review the video views for each class. And then manually add the check-ins.
So, this new feature should be a relief for you.
Tell us what you think. We always love hearing from you.

Enhancement: Much more flexible plans/pricing
Let’s say, you had two plan options for the same class:
– 1 month, 12 classes
– 1 month, 24 classes
Until today, you were forced to create two (almost duplicate) plans: for 12 and 24 classes, but with all the other details the same.
Starting today, you won’t have to do that anymore.
You can now create as many combos of classes and terms, for a specific plan.
So..What has changed?
We moved the “number of classes” field from “Plans” to “Pricing”.
While that’s the only visible change, we had to make some significant changes in the database design to make this improvement.
Will this automatically take care of removing existing duplicate plans?
No, unfortunately not. If you’d like to remove the duplicates, you’ll need to create multiple pricing entries for the plans in question – and then remove the duplicate plans.

New Feature: Discount codes
It’s finally here 🙂
Admin: Go to Studio Info -> Plans & Pricing -> Discount Codes (button on the top right). You can manage your discount codes from there.
Students: For them, it works very similar to how it works on apps like Swiggy. There’s a discount code field on the checkout page. And if they enter a valid code, they instantly see a discounted price.

Check it out. We’ve made it quite powerful for you – while also making it very simple to use.
