Activity, Class, and Session

These content types format data/content pulled from third parties, such as Daxko, Personify and ActiveNet, for display in Open Y.

Content editors rarely, if ever, enter information directly into these content types on a day-to-day basis. However, it is important to know how they work and how they relate to manually-entered content.

Example - Swim Lessons

  • Swimming and Aquatics (Program Page, manually entered)
  • Swim Lessons (Program Subcategory Page, manually entered)
  • Youth Group Swim Lessons (Activity, mapped from CRM or custom automation)
  • Stage 3 (Class, mapped from CRM)
  • Monday/Wednesday/Friday 9:30-10 a.m. at Franklin Family YMCA (Session, mapped from CRM)

Note: This is an example only. Depending on your CRM and any customizations you make, your setup for Swim Lessons or any program may look different that the example listed above.

Activity

Often used as the top-level filter in Activity Finder and Repeat Schedules, Activity consists of three fields:

  • Title: The name of the Activity (and the filter in Activity Finder).
  • Program subcategory: An entity reference to or tag for a Program Subcategory. Maps the Activity to higher-levels of user-entered content. *Description: A description for the Activity. Usually pulled from a description in a CRM through an API.

Class

A narrower selection of Program Offerings. Not an individual instance, but a smaller selection of instances.

Classes have three ields that map into Activity Finder and Repeat Schedules: a description, a title and entity reference/tag to an Activity.

Class also contains Areas for content editors to add paragraphs; however, depending on how your CRM and the number of programs your Y runs, it may not be practical use these fields.

Session

An individual program offering. Contains fields for pricing, session date/time, instructor, ages and a registration link. This are the individual rows/instances in Repeat Schedules and Activity Finder.
