To ensure that an event loads properly, an event must be scheduled and all users must be assigned at least two hours before the start time. If you make any changes to the event during the two hour window prior to start time, those changes will not be accommodated and the event may not load properly.

To create a new Instructor Led event:

  1. On the Manage Events page, click Create New.

    The Select a Template page displays.  This page allows you to sort templates by Name or Description and search templates.  
  2. Select a template best suited for the event type that you are creating.
  3. Select Continue to proceed to the New Event page.

Templates are a set of specified parameters that have been compiled into a template using Templates.

    2. Select Pick Automatically and Hatsize automatically selects the ideal pod at the time of the session.
  6.  To display a graph depicting the resource usage for the pod(s), click View Resources .  The View Resources icon is displayed to the right of date and time fields only if it is enabled. If Pick Automatically was selected then the graph depicts the resource usage of every pod.
  7. To send an email to an instructor or other user whenever someone logs into the Web Portal and starts this event:
    1. Check the box to enable Presence Detector.
    2. In the Email Address field, enter an email address. Enter multiple email addresses by placing a comma between each address.
