It's essential to grasp the distinction between an activity and its schedules. Here's a breakdown of the key differences to help you make informed decisions:

Activity: crafting your unique experience

An activity is all about the experience you offer families. It's about carefully designing what you want to teach and how you'll present it to your audience in an engaging way.

What do I choose at an activity level?

  • Activity type
  • Activity category
  • Activity title
  • Activity description
  • Activity pictures and videos
  • Who can attend: attendees age range
  • Activity requirements
  • Activity waivers
  • Registration forms
  • Activity location
  • Pricing rules and payment plan

These settings will apply to all of the schedules on your activity. 

Schedules: when is your activity taking place?

Schedules outline the specific dates and times for families to sign up for your activity. They provide essential details on when customers can join, how much it costs, and the capacity available for each session.

What are the key components I set at the schedule level?

  • Event duration
  • Time and dates
  • Registration opening and closing date
  • Capacity
  • Price
  • Nickname

Each activity can feature multiple schedules, offering flexibility in dates, capacity, and pricing. This allows you to experiment and iterate on your activity settings to find what resonates best with your community and chase that perfect 5 star rating.

You can easily add new schedules to an existing activity without starting from scratch, making it seamless to collect sign-ups with just a few clicks.

Understanding the difference between activity and schedules empowers you to tailor your offerings effectively, ensuring a stellar experience for everyone involved.If you have any questions or need further assistance, don't hesitate to reach out to us at We're here to support your journey with Village!
