Teachers are able to edit their own bios, but their changes need to be approved by the admin (or staff with the relevant permission settings) before changes will reflect. Teachworks essentially saves two versions of the bio, and the original bio is only updated once the new bio is approved.
To approve a bio, go to the relevant employee’s profile and click on “edit”. Scroll down to the bio section and select the “Approve Draft” checkbox (remember to save the form).
Website Booking Plugin
If you use the Website Booking Plugin and you have the “Book a Lesson” option available, you can display teacher bios to give prospective clients more information about your teachers.
To enable teacher bios, go to “Integrations & Add-Ons”, scroll down to the Website Booking Plugin and click on “Settings”. On Step 1 (General Settings) you will find a section called “Teacher List Settings”. Simply select the bio checkbox and update the form.
Updating Bios in Bulk
The import template for teachers and staff includes a bio column, allowing you to update employee bios in bulk. This article has more information.
