Scheduling plays a crucial role in managing tours, appointments, and events at child care centers. IntelliKid Systems offers comprehensive scheduling settings that empower centers to customize their working hours, availability, and slot frequency (i.e. how long an event is scheduled for). In this week's IntelliTip, we will dive into the significance of slot frequency and how it can optimize your scheduling process.
One of the most valuable features of IntelliKid Systems' scheduler settings is the ability to not only offer self-scheduling to families but also to have full control over the available times. After all, self-scheduling is only beneficial when you can manage and customize the available slots to meet your center's needs. With our intuitive scheduler settings, you have the power to configure your working hours and set specific unavailable times, allowing you to define your availability in alignment with your center's operational capacity. This level of control ensures a smooth and organized experience for both your staff and the families you serve.

It is also highly beneficial to establish a slot frequency that aligns with the average duration of your tours. By doing so, you create a seamless and efficient scheduling process for both your team and the families interested in visiting your center. For example, setting 60-minute slots within your scheduler settings allows the date picker to display available times in convenient hourly intervals. Families can easily select a suitable time slot, and your team can efficiently plan and allocate resources based on the anticipated tour duration. With IntelliKid Systems' flexible slot frequency options, you have the control to streamline your scheduling process and provide a consistent and positive experience for all.
Every child care center has its own dynamics and capacity for hosting tours or events simultaneously. IntelliKid Systems recognizes these unique needs and provides scheduling settings that cater to various scenarios by allowing for the selecting of the number of leads per slot. Whether your center can accommodate one tour at a time or prefers conducting group tours, the scheduler can be adjusted to match your operational requirements.
Editing your scheduler settings is a simple process that can be done within your IKS account. To set up the location settings, navigate to "Menu > Settings”, select "Location", and then the drop-down under “Scheduling / Calendar Settings.” From there, you can easily configure your working hours, unavailable times, and slot frequency. This intuitive approach empowers you to customize your scheduler according to your center's specific needs.
