A draft class will not be displayed in the frontend schedules, but you can choose to publish it at any time.
# Class name
Use the What's the name of this class? field to type in the name of the class. This will be displayed directly in the schedule and as the title of the class page.

After choosing one or several time intervals, you can apply them to that particular day (ex: Apply only to March 8) or to all similar days of the week (ex: Apply to all Fridays). You can also block the date. If you need different increments when setting the starting and ending time, click on the stopwatch icon, in the top left corner.
