Attendance Icons Are Back!

Hey, everyone. Based on feedback from many of you regarding the new version, we’ve added the ability to quickly view whether a reconciled lesson was Attended or Missed on the Calendar by adding a “check” icon for attended and an “x” icon for missed.

Once you reconcile, those icons will appear next to the event on the Calendar automatically which allows you to view at a glance your past attendance. Also, here are a few fixes related to the new version from this past week:

  • An issue with not being able to add an item to the lending library using the mobile app has been resolved.
  • Enabling the Automatically Enter Online Payments feature checkbox was unnecessarily unchecking the Enable Online Payments checkbox. This has been fixed so the proper popup appears with further instructions.   
  • Editing a single lesson and changing it to recurring in the Calendar was causing the lesson to incorrectly disappear for some teachers. This has been resolved and the lesson will no longer disappear.

Did you know that you can customize what automatically goes onto your invoices?

With custom invoice options, you have the ability to show more than just the current balance due on an invoice. For instance, if you’d like your families to see what future charges they have scheduled, you can have that automatically included on the invoice along with several other options. To see a full list of custom template invoice options, please read this article.

Hey, everyone. Keep an eye for a new look on the Music Teacher’s Helper main website and blog in the coming days. The new look and content will help teachers searching for studio management tools learn about the community and recent improvements made to the software. This won’t change where or how you login though. And here are a few fixes from this past week:

  • For some teachers, multiple lesson reminder emails were being sent out for one lesson but have been resolved so all future lessons will only receive the correct reminder based on the settings selected.
  • In the new version, the dropdown option to move an active adult student to former was not showing for some members and has been resolved.

Hey, everyone. We hope your week is off to a great start. Here’s are updates from this past week:

  • In the new version, Billable attendance statuses being were showing up on invoices as Not Billable, even when set to be billable for some teachers. This has been resolved.
  • In the new version, a second contact listed under a child student were not receiving lessons notes even when selected to, and only one contact was receiving the notes. This has been fixed so all selected contacts will receive lesson notes.
  • In the new version, custom term dates in the Rate Packages that were longer than one month were billing monthly for some teachers. This has been fixed to reflect the exact range set by the Rate Package.

Did you know that you can individually set attendance for group lessons?

In the Attendance tab of the Calendar, you have the flexibility to set attendance for some or all past lessons at once. Plus, you can set individual group lesson attendance and leave lesson notes for each individual in a group, or for the entire group. This article walks you through in detail how to take advantage of the Attendance tab so you can start saving even more time after lessons!
