The class in question
happens to be a recurring class and has around 100 classes scheduled in this series.
The count of attendees which is shown on the class page is the number of attendees who have registered for or have attended at least one of the class in this series.
The actual attendee count in any of the past class is also shown on the same page:
The attendance report is generated for each class after it is over and if the teachers want to contact only the students who attended that class, they can do so.
Regarding 24 hours time gap for scheduling public classes, I have already communicated this to Marcus and its all about keeping a tap on the quality of the public classes being held on WizIQ. We already have spammers spamming users with messages and sometimes posting comments on class pages. The last thing we require is having them schedule classes which are inappropriate and drive away serious learners and teachers from our platform.
Right now we have auto approval feature for public classes in place. What it does is that it allows the users who have this feature activated for them to schedule public classes without waiting for approval from WizIQ team (the 24 hours window still stands though).
We are already working on removing this 24 hour window for scheduling public classes and by the end of this month we will be activating this feature for selected few WizIQ members.
Just like auto approval feature for public classes, this feature will not be available for all users of WizIQ.
In case you have any unanswered questions, you can catch me on Skype.
