Step 4: Update your availability

Students can only book lessons during the time slots when you mark yourself as available. The students will not be able to book lessons within 24 hours from the moment they are attempting to schedule.

In order to be scheduled only during the times when you are available to conduct lessons, you need to have your availability updated for the month ahead. Please see the below GIF how to set both your general and exact availability:

update availability

General Availability

  1. Login to your user panel using the following link https://platform.octb.us/teachers/ on your computer
  2. Click on schedule in the left hand side menu
  3. Click on General availability and click and drop when you are generally available

Don't worry this schedule is not going to be used to book the lessons, but only to let the platform that you are generally available during those times. Please see the above GIF for a step-by-step guide.

Exact Availability (is used to determine when you are available)

  1. Login to your user panel using the following link https://platform.octb.us/teachers/ on your computer
  2. Click on schedule in the left hand side menu
  3. Click on Exact availability and click and drop when you are generally available

This schedule IS going to be used by the platform to determine whether you are available or not to take the class. Please see the above GIF for a step-by-step guide.

Keep in mind the platform can only allow the student to book a lesson with you at the time when you put yourself as available, so if the lesson has been booked, that means that you must conduct the lesson since you put yourself as available at that time.
