Testing the student experience

Testing the student experience

Before inviting your students to use your Ubindi system, you'll probably want to really check out what the experience is going to be like for them. Well, that's easy!

You don't have to create a separate 'test account' as a student... simply visit your public schedule page where you will see and experience everything your students do.

On your public page, you can not only see what your schedule looks like — you can actually sign up for your own classes, access you videos, etc. — just like any other student. In fact, if you look at your Students dashboard, you will find yourself there, too. By default, teachers are their own students!

Since you are a student of your own self, you can do all of the following:
  1. tag your student-self 
  2. send your student-self an email 
  3. accept your own waiver as your student
  4. register for one of your classes (you can even pay for it, if you want)
  5. edit your own student record, add notes about yourself, etc.
Before playing around as a student, it's best to have created a couple of classes, perhaps have set up a class pass, and have enabled payments. That way, you can get the full "student experience".

If you don't want to have yourself as your own student, you can always remove yourself from your student list, of course. Use the little ellipsis next to your name on your list of students to see the "remove" option.

Once you're happy with things, you can then invite people to sign up for your classes on your schedule page — or you can import a student list directly onto Ubindi, too.

It can be scary to move your clients into a new system — we understand! So, here's a little tip:
TIP: You don't have to go "all in" to start using Ubindi. Instead, create a class and then invite just one or two of your clients (maybe friends?) to sign up for it. It can be a real class with other people who signed up in the usual way (since it doesn't matter how people got into class once they're there). Afterwards, ask them for their feedback about things.
