Ongoing vs. Fixed Term
A class pack, as the name suggests is a pack of classes that you can offer to your clients for courses that require multiple sessions/lessons. You can create a class pack in two ways:
a) Ongoing class pack: An ongoing class pack allows a user to be able to book classes for a certain period from the date of purchase (eg. for 4 weeks from the date of purchase) regardless of the calendar date at the time of purchase. This means that the class pack is valid for 4 weeks from the date of purchase.
b) Fixed term class pack: A fixed term class pack allows the user to purchase classes for a pre-defined period of time (eg. from May 1 to May 31) regardless of the calendar date at the time of purchase. This means that the class pack is valid till May 31st regardless of when it was purchased.
Here are some specific differences you need to know during the setup of an Ongoing vs. Fixed Term class pack
