Having received numerous feedback from italki users about opening up more available time, we are glad to inform you of a major change to the minimum time required to schedule lessons.
Effective July 10th 2019, we will be reducing the minimum time required to book a lesson from the current 24 Hours to 12 Hours. The maximum response time will remain 48 hours.
This change will allow students to book lessons closer to the lesson start time and give teachers more flexibility. In practice this will mean that:
- Students can book a lesson that will start in 12 hours time. Teachers will have to respond to these lesson requests before the lesson start time.
- Teachers can modify a lesson request and choose a lesson time that is 12 hours away
- Reschedule requests still need to be made at least 24 hours in advance but
- The rescheduled lesson can start in 12 hours
Lesson requests are designed to allow teachers the choice to Accept, Decline or Modify the request from the student. The student is in effect waiting for the teacher to make a decision as to whether the lesson will be scheduled or not.
