The Meeting Type is an academic field that describes the valid general meeting categories for courses and sections. Examples include Lecture, Lab, Discussion, or any other category used by your institution. If academic section data is being imported from a student information system, meeting type records will be automatically added to the Astra Schedule database as they are imported. However, meeting type records can also be manually added and edited directly in Astra Schedule as well.
To add new meeting types:
- Click the Academics tab.
- Select Meeting Types.
- Select Meeting Types from the drop-down list. The list of meeting types is displayed.
- Click Add.
- Enter a new meeting type name and description and click OK.
- The new meeting type entry will appear on the list.
