Add Room – click the blue button and a list of your active classrooms will appear. Tick the box next to the one you want to block.

Block Type – from the drop down menu select the reason for the blocking. These drop downs are explained here.

Start Date & To Date – enter the dates the block will begin and end. If it is a one-off enter the same date as the start and finish.

Day Of Week – enter the day(s) the block is for. So if you have a staff meeting every Monday from 9am to 10 am October to December your screen should look like this:

Tick  Active and when you have finished click Save. You will see that it has been added to Room Block – List

Note you cannot add a block if there is already a lesson scheduled. You would need to delete it it or move it to another room first.
