    The ability of students to sign up in the Scheduler for past dates has caused several students to believe they are signing up for a current appointment. The fact that it is listed as "Available" with a day of the week makes them believe they are signing up for a future appointment this week. It is an easy mistake to make since, computers being what they are, this seems obvious that past appointments are not actually "available." They should show "past" or have an alert that this appointment occurs in the past, at the very least.
