This article is meant to help explain how to navigate the Reservations Tab and to update your reservations schedule/calendar.
Getting to the Reservations Tab
You can find the Reservations Tab here, or you can find the Reservations Tab by clicking on the section titled "Reservations" at the top of your tutoring screen.
If you'd like to allow students to reserve a tutoring session with you in advance, you need to open Reservation availability in this tab. Reservations are a great way to make the most of your time on Cambly. Many veteran tutors on Cambly get back-to-back reservations every day!
The Calendar View
At the landing page of the Reservations Tab you will see an overview of your Reservation calendar. On the left side under "Calendar Display" you can toggle between displaying any one or all of three different display options:
"My Reservation Availability" - these are times you have designated as being open for reservations
"My Priority Hours" - these are priority hours you have already signed up for
"Student Reservations" - These are reservations (confirmed and unconfirmed) made by students.
Having these views overlaid will help you to visualize how your schedule on Cambly is filled out and where there are gaps.
Adjusting Your Reservation Availability
You can use the "edit" button to the right of "My Reservation Availability" within the "Calendar Display" section (all shown above) to make adjustments to your reservation availability. Clicking "edit" will bring you to a new calendar where you can set your availability. Simply click and drag with your mouse to indicate times you are available to take reservations. You can use the "next" button in the top left to move forward in your calendar and adjust dates further in advance.
If you placed some times which no longer fit your schedule that you'd like to remove/delete simply click on the block of time within this calendar and select "remove".
If you prefer, you can clear the entire week's schedule by clicking on the "clear week" button on the bottom right of this screen.
For your Regulars: You can add reservation availability that is reservable only by students in your "My Regulars" list. At the bottom of the calendar, simply go to "Add availability for" and change your audience from "anyone" to "regulars only." Then add as many "My Regulars" blocks as you'd like (each will show up in red to indicate that they're exclusive to your regular students). Click "done" to finish.
Setting a Recurring Schedule (Advanced Users)
If you have a weekly schedule that more or less stays the same you can build yourself a "Weekly Template". To access, from within the Reservation Availability "edit" screen click on "edit weekly template". From this new screen you can set a weekly schedule to your preference and click "done" to save. With a weekly schedule saved you can use the "paste weekly template" button located at in the bottom middle of the reservation availability edit page to paste your weekly availability into the week you are customizing.
