New Features and Fixes

How are you doing with the new software? Here’s a window into how I’m adjusting to it as a teacher — I hope you find this helpful!

I’ve used Music Teachers Helper since way back in 2006. Nearly all updates to the system have included real improvements, and there was one major update some years ago that required some getting used to. I’m happy that the new version stays the course but provides a number of improvements, including one feature I’m excited about — the File Area. This is a feature I used to use it all the time but the last major upgrade made the File Area less workable for me. Now it’s better than ever, and I’m looking forward to working with it again! Yay!

I’m going to focus here on a few essentials I use in my studio plus a few favorite features — emailing, the student list, lesson notes, selected uses of the calendar and its settings, and the File Area.

Hi everyone. It’s Rock again with your weekly software announcements.

As we wind down the rest of 2017 and look back in thankfulness for all the good we’ve experienced, we also are keen to look forward to 2018.  Oh yes, our development team is still hard at work.  Gerry, our Dev team leader, and Ken, our Product Designer, have been working together to focus the team on restructuring the Music Teacher’s Helper code.

If you didn’t get a chance to see last week’s update, see that here for a recap on the details on what’s coming for Music Teacher’s Helper in 2018.

This week we have resolved 11 behind the scenes enhancements and 1 teacher facing issue. The teacher facing issue is for the MTH New Version: we’ve resolved an issue were some teacher policy settings reverted to the default settings after a few days.

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.

If you have any questions for us or experience any issues, please reach out to Happy teaching!
