In order for your client to use your services, your clients must purchase or be issued a valid pass for that session, event or appointment.
A pass is valid for a session if it's
Valid From date starts on or before the date of your session; And the
Valid Until date ends on or after the date of your session.
Wherever possible, it is most convenient to set the
Valid From to
Purchase Day. Your clients will still only be able to signup for sessions for which that pass is valid for. This means that if the pass is valid for a particular workshop, then even though the pass is valid from
Purchase Day, clients will only be able to use the pass for the specific date for which it was created.
The benefit of setting your passes as valid from
Purchase Day is that you will not need to manually change the
Valid From setting for an issued pass (or multiple passes) should anything happen and you need to re-schedule a session earlier. And as mentioned above, even though the pass is set as valid from purchase day, it can still only be used for the date(s) of the session(s) it was created for.
Similarly, we have found it most useful to set the
Valid Until date a little longer, so that if a session is re-scheduled or missed, you will not need to manually make changes to the
Valid Until date setting for the affected passes.
Passes can be
- Purchase Day: The pass will become valid on the date of purchase.
- Specific Date: The pass will become valid on the specific date set.
- First Visit: The pass will become valid on the date of the client' first use.
When selecting First Visit, you will be prompted to set

- Number of Days: The pass will expire if first visit is not within the set number of days.
- Number of Months: The pass will expire if first visit is not within the set number of months.
- Specific Date: The pass will expire if first visit is not by the set date.
