Add Instructors


(Back to Top)

Instructors are a type of resource that can be scheduled on Flight Schedule Pro. An Instructor on the schedule is typically attached to a user that can log in to the system. Instructors will see their own appointments under My Upcoming Reservations on the home page when they log in. They'll also receive email notifications when appointments are scheduled for them, or if changes are made to their appointments. (These email notifications are sent by default but depend on the company's System Email Settings and the instructor user's Email Notification settings)

About Instructor Availability and Work Schedules:

  • When you add new instructors, they'll show up as unavailable on the schedule until their work schedule is configured. Only administrators and users with permission to "Override Reservation Errors"  can schedule appointments during instructor unavailable times.
  • You can grant Instructors permission to set up their own work schedules, or Instructor Work Schedules can be maintained by any user who has permission to "Edit All Work Schedules". If you want instructors to manage their own availability, they must have permission to "Edit My Own Work Schedule". (See article "Set up User Roles" for more information on setting up roles and permissions)

To add your first Instructor (as a new user):

  1. Go to People (left-hand menu) > Add Person
  2. On the add a person form, set "Instructor" to Yes (see image below)

Make an existing user an instructor (or verify if they're an Instructor or not):

  1. Go to People on the left-hand menu
  2. Select person and click "View"
  3. Go to Account Settings > Online Access
  4. Look for the "Instructor" checkbox (see image below). If you mark the Instructor option as "Yes" and click Save, this user will be made an Instructor in Flight Schedule Pro.


Once you've added your first instructor, you'll see a new "Instructors" tab on the left-hand menu where you can add more instructors and manage instructor setup.
