This extension improves upon the scheduling tool on the VIPKid teacher portal. Instead of repeatedly opening the same slots every week and switching them to short notice (if that's your thing), you can just select the checkboxes for the slots you want. The checkboxes will remain checked week to week, or if you refresh the page, which means opening new slots is as simple as clicking the 'open' button. If you want to close them back up, just click the 'close' button. You can also select an entire day, or an entire row of slots by clicking on the day or time numbers. 1.) Install the VIPKID+ extension into your web browser. 2.) Log in to the VIPKID teacher portal. 3.) Open your bookings tab and unlock your schedule in the top right hand corner. 4.) Select the time slots you would like to open by marking each slot with a check box. Alternatively, you can select an entire day by clicking on the day, or select an entire row by clicking the indicated time in that row. 5.) If you would like to mark each of your classes as “short notice” check the “short notice” check box at the top of the schedule. Skip this step if you do not want to book short notice classes. 6.) Click the orange “open” button at the top of the schedule. 7.) DONE! Your schedule should be changed and slots open, ready to be booked! 8.) Week to week, your original selected check boxes will stay checked (even if you refresh the page), so all you have to do is click “open” on the following weeks to open those slots. You can select the “close” button at the top of the schedule at any time to close all of your checked slots. You can also uncheck any boxes you wish and rearrange your schedule at any time.

So you can only do this week's slots (not very useful). I really like this extension better than VIPKid's version. Is it fixable? Please say yes!

- (2018-12-22) Amanda Short: Very handy tool because it eliminates individually clicking each slot every week. Also eliminates user error of opening incorrect times! :)
- (2018-10-19) Jeremy Schaub: Yep. Great
- (2018-10-18) Brett Tucker: LOVE THIS!!! Such a time saver and excellent tool! Does get a little wonky when trying to open a schedule during a day/week that already has something booked though. Seems like if there is a class booked the extension gets confused and won't just skip to the next open slot lol. Still beyond amazing even with that mini snag! ANYONE who teaches with VIPKID should have this thing available....ANYONE and EVERYONE!!!
- (2018-08-15) Avi Mills: Best thing that ever happened to the VIPKID portal. Don't know how I ever did my bookings before without this handy tool!
- (2018-08-13) Amy Etheridge: I just added it and I already love it! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
- (2018-08-12) Lori Stover: Great Addon! I just wish there was a "clear" button to clear the check marks as my week to week schedules can be very different with my full-time job (with odd hours) and working for multiple ESL companies.
- (2019-02-15, v:1.6) David Epstein: Yay!
This is awesome, thank you!!! Anyway you think you could incorporate the ability to sync booked classes to google calendar all at once?

First, let me say thank you so much for creating such a useful tool. Next, will you please update this useful tool? The check marks no longer appear since the time change on November 4th. Please update.

First, let me thank you for this wonderful VIPKID extension. You are an absolute lifesaver and I do appreciate your fine work. Secondly, if you have a link that I can donate to, I would love to do so. Thirdly, will you be updating this app? The checkmarks no longer appear on my bookings page. Thank you very much!
