Create Locations & Spaces
A location and space are required for each schedule you build and in Union, you can save these details ahead of time!
The Location you add is the physical location of your studio(s). The Space, is the various rooms, "virtual rooms", teachers, cameras, associated with the location.
Example: if you were doing an in-person only class, you will need to make sure you're directing people into the correct address (location) and class room (space). Likewise, you will need to be sure you're directing all digital viewers to the correct location & space. If the correct Space is not connected to the schedule, students will not be able to access the class. Each space is given it's own stream-key.
Locations: The address you add is your studio’s physical location and the postal code will determine the timezone for all associating spaces.
An event's location name will display publicly.
For In-Person classes, both location name & address will display publicly. Users can click or tap to view the address in their favorite mapping service. When customers book a class, they receive a confirmation email that includes the address and can add their booking directly to their digital calendar.
If you have (1) physical location but have multiple rooms (or remote teachers), you will add each room by creating multiple spaces.
Spaces: These are specific rooms (or remote teachers/cameras) you want associated with each location. You can have multiple spaces in one location and each space created will produce its own unique key. Defining a space (room):
A physical room within your studio
A teacher who may be livestreaming from their home
Creating a space will allow you to choose the attendance types for each event
An external video conference (i.e. Zoom or Google Classroom)
**The same location/space cannot be used for multiple events at the same time, so if your studio has multiple rooms that will be used concurrently, you'll need to create a space for each.
