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 to the system, perform the following:
1.Click on the Meeting Types option in the Admin section of the Academics tab, or on the Master List option on the Setup tab.
2.Select Meeting Types from the drop-down list. The list of meeting types is displayed.
3.Find the blank entry field at the bottom of the list.
4.Enter a new meeting type name and description and click Add.
5.The new meeting type entry will appear on the list.
You may use the delete icon to the right of the entry to remove a meeting type from the list, or use the edit icon to modify the name and/or description.
