Once a Term is created, sessions can then be created within that Term.

To create sessions within the term:

Alternatively, click the New Academic Calendar button in the Session & Dates related list on the Term record created above and select the "Session" record type.
  2. Select the parent Term record in the Term field and enter a Name, Start Date, End Date, Session code and Account.
  3. Set the Status to "Active" or "Draft" depending if the session is now active.
