Each time an Event is created for a Lesson, it will inherit the default configuration as defined in Settings|Events. In addition to these global Event defaults, it is also possible to define Event defaults for specific Lessons. This can save a lot of time when creating new Events.
When Event defaults are configured at Lesson level, each new Event will inherit these default settings, instead of the global defaults. A greater range of options can be specified when setting defaults for a Lesson (as opposed to global defaults), including:
- Custom fields
- Booking management
- Evaluation form
- Email templates
