Class Listings Tables are not required to use online enrollment but they are highly recommended as they make a great experience for your customers.
We recommend you download, print, and review Class Listings Tables - Checklist for a Successful Rollout.
What exactly ARE Class Listings Tables anyway?
They are a list of your available classes, and information about each one displayed directly on your own web pages. The class information is updated automatically in REAL TIME so families view the current information. Classes are displayed in a table format (columns/rows). They are a dynamic "pull" of data straight out of your Jackrabbit database. They can be customized to show just the information about the classes that YOU want showing. They can be split apart into groups by Session, Location, and Categories. They are accessible via your web pages via PC, Mac, tablet, or smartphone. They are mobile-friendly and will responsively transform when viewed on cell phones IF YOUR WEBSITE is optimized for mobile viewing. They can also allow enrollment directly from the tables for new or returning customers.
Class Listings Tables are the perfect way to showcase your available classes, schedules, and information in an organized, user-friendly manner. Your customers will LOVE the ease with which they can quickly find the perfect class.
What do the tables LOOK like?
You choose which classes are shown, which columns are shown, and also the sort order. You or your webmaster can also "jazz up" the appearance of the tables to your liking.
To learn more about the options for customizing your tables visit our section of Help articles Customize Your Class Listings Tables with HTML Codes.

What are the website requirements and other important issues to know?
Special note to webmasters (and our "techie, code-writing" clients):
WEB DEVELOPERS: Jackrabbit does not allow access via Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS). You may use CSS to specify styles for the table for use with HTML tags such as DIV, SPAN, TABLE, TR, TD for the HTML codes as given in this guide. We also offer a class listing JSON API that will provide you with raw class data in JSON format which you can use to create a custom UI for your client - see the Integration Assistance article to contact our Integration Team and request a copy of the JSON document. Webmasters often ask us to increase the availability of cosmetic (non-functional) offerings and plugins. We have found that what is currently available is sufficient for most of our customer base. If you have "functional" (content-specific) enhancement ideas, please have your client submit the request to Jackrabbit through their database's Idea Portal (light bulb icon).
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How does the new registrant add Class #2, Class #3, etc. when using the Class Listing Table(s)?
A. The Class Listings Tables will pre-fill the selected class into the Registration Form in the Class #1 position. If the new registrant wants to enroll in additional classes at the same time, they must use the "Select Another Class" button on the Registration Form under the Class previously selected to select an additional class. It is not possible to select multiple classes directly out of the Class Listings Tables at this time. See the Modify the Online Registration Form Class Search Page page for more details. Remember that existing customers will not be using the Class Listings Tables, instead, they should be logging into the Parent Portal to enroll in classes.
Q. Can I have waitlists and make-ups reflected in the number of openings on my Class Listings Table?
A. Yes! Go to the Gear (icon) > Settings > Online Registration > Settings (left menu) > Class Search Settings (section) and you can choose to allow a waitlist when the class is full. Also, you decide which conditions should be taken into consideration when the system is determining the remaining number of openings shown for new enrollees.
- Set Allow Waitlist When Class Full to Yes.
- What Impacts the Number of Class Openings? Waitlist row and Makeups row to "Yes" for Online Registration Quick Registration to have waitlists and makeups taken into account.
Remember to Save Changes.
Q. My border looks different than what's shown in the Help Center articles. How do I edit the table border style?
A. Our tables normally display without borders (some older codes display with a double border). If yours look different, it is because somewhere in your web editor CSS you have border rules that are overriding our defaults. These are normally found in your CSS table style rules. Contact a webmaster for assistance with your CSS. Jackrabbit can not assist with your web editor CSS style rules.
