    Hi. I just got another error on the app not letting me ask for Express Withdrawal. Is anyone getting this same message?

    Not I, I didn't have any trouble the other day but I find the APP does not work as well as my laptop.

    I have been blocked from accepting lesson requests because I supposedly missed a lesson. I have not missed any lessons. This site is stealing my livelihood! Independent teachers (WHO ARE NOT CONTRACTORS) should not ever be blocked from accepting lessons. This is unacceptable!

    @rose you'll have to go through the rigmarole of explaining and reinstating.  Check your emails, one of them should have a link to enable resetting of the unavailability

    @ros @cjlee - email mentioning reduction in teaching sessions and offering help.  The algorithm they use notes the raw count only.  Last year I did over 1300 hours which was way over my average and way over what I want to do as a retiree. So I reduced my available hours by about 20% but of course the simplistic algorithm did not notice.  Now I am back to perhaps 1000 a year for 2019, still too much but more comfortable. 

     

    My two big beefs are the 12 hour overnight bookings, and the inability to locate student notebook entries (since I set students writing homework)

    @Rose This has happened to me too lately.  I am really getting frustrated with Italki. I have been here since 2011 and the changes that have been made in the last couple of years have been so unfair to teachers. I am really getting upset with Italki.

    Hi, could you please tell me how I synchronize my italki appointments with my google calendar, in order to avoid over booking?

    I found that I can import my icalendar feed to google, but it looks like it's only working in one direction.

    How is the italki calendar checking if the slot is still open, in real time?

    All my other appointment apps do synchronize automatically (like Calendly, Facebook, etc.) which avoids conflicts between appointments.

    Is there any link that I missed?

    Thanks in advance.
