Club adminstrators can edit classes for their club, or a special event within their club, from the Class Management Dashboard and Special Event Management Dashboard found in their Club Administrator Tools.
Fields available to edit:
|Class Name1||Describes the class specific to club or special event within a club e.g. Medium Handicap Class, Ladies Keelboat Class, International 14 World Championship Class, RS 800 Class|
|URL||Include if a website specific to the class or special event is available; if no website you can include your club website here.|
|Facebook URL||Include if a Facebook page (not group) is available for a specific class.|
|Twitter URL||Include if a Twitter page is available for a specific class.|
|Private||You can mark any class as private. Members of private classes can only be added and managed by administrators. Non private classes can be joined by Club2Class users. Those users can then maintain their own information and boat details.For more information on private classes please visit this knowledge base article.|
Note 1: When creating a class inside a special event consider that the class name will often be qualified by the special event name. For example, a special event may be named "International 14 World Championship". In this event there may be team and individual racing. Two classes could be created called "Team Racing" and "Individual Racing" within the special event. Now when viewing results or calendars for the classes the class name will be qualified by the special event. For example, "International 14 World Championship Individual Racing..."
A class is a collection of boats, members, calendar events and results. A class may contain boats of one or more boat classes.
For example, you may create a class called "Fast Asymmetric Class" which may contain boats of boat class "RS 800", "International 14", "49er", all of which are fast asymmetric boats. Another example might be a class that contains boats of a single boat class. For example, "Mirror Class", which would contain mirror dinghies.
A class can be created at a club level or within a special event. Classes created at club level can be used for regular club activity. Special events can be created within a club and classes can be added to them also.
For example, you might have a class called "RS800 Class" at club level to hold all your regular club activity for that collection of boats. In addition, you may create a special event called "RS Open Event" to contain information related to a specific open event. Within that special event you may also have a class called "RS800 Class" to hold activity for the RS 800 Class specifically for that RS Open event. This class will likely contain boats from different clubs.
