How do I schedule a class with multiple instructors?

When you create a class, you can add one or more instructors to the class. One instructor will be marked as the primary instructor and will be displayed in the Find Classes output. You can assign different instructors to different classrooms (adding multiple classrooms is covered in the How do I use multiple classrooms for a class? article).

To add multiple instructors, expand the Instructor section of the Create/Edit Class page and click Add Instructor. This will open the Choose Instructor dialog box. This dialog box is automatically filtered for instructors that are certified to teach the course, do not have a schedule conflict with the sessions of the class, and belong to your organization. Set or remove any filters necessary, including these three filters, and click Search. All instructors matching your criteria will be displayed. Click the ones you want to add to the class and click OK.

The first instructor added will be, by default, the Primary instructor for the class. To change this, click the Primary radial button for the instructor you want set as the primary. This will be the instructor displayed in the Find Classes results.

When multiple instructors are added to, a class a new link appears below their names, Add all instructors to all sessions. Instructors can only see the class on their Instructor Calendar if they are added to class sessions. By default, only the initial primary instructor is added to all class sessions and the additional instructors are not added to any class sessions; changing the primary instructor designation does not add or remove any instructor to class sessions. To add these instructors to all sessions, click Add all instructors to all sessions. You can also add/remove non-primary instructors to individual sessions. To do this, expand the Session Times section and click Edit next to the session you want to change. Click the Instructor dropdown and check or uncheck the box beside the instructor(s) name(s).

Finish creating the class, and click Save. If you have removed the automatic filter for schedule conflicts and one of the instructors has a conflict, you will be notified upon attempting to save. Click Yes to continue saving the class with the instructor conflict or click No to go back and change the conflict.

You can filter the Find Classes page on a particular instructor. All classes that are scheduled using the instructor will show in the search results regardless of if they are the primary instructor for the class.
