New Features and Fixes

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!

Hi, everyone. We hope you’re having a great week so far. With summer coming up, don’t forget you can opt into our annual pricing and save the equivalent of two months! That way, there’s no need to go through the trouble of downgrading during summer months when you’re teaching less. To do so, go to My Account in the top right corner and change your Billing Frequency from Monthly to Yearly. Also, here’s an update from this past week:

  • In the new version, starting the Daily Summary Report required selecting it under Reports and Messaging. Now, if you select either, it will automatically select the other.

Did you know that you can sync your MTH Calendar to your Google, iCal, and Outlook Calendar?

If you’d like to see your MTH events on your preferred calendar app, syncing only takes a minute! Check out these instructions for setting up your MTH calendar to show elsewhere.

You can use the MTH calendar for non-studio events as well by not assigning to a student, and creating a custom category labeled “personal”. Either way, you can have peace of mind with your events in one place whether you sync with an outside calendar or use the MTH calendar for everything.

Hi, everyone. We hope you’re having a great week so far. Here are a few updates from this past two weeks:

  • In the new version, the previous balance was not calculating correctly on generated invoices but are now matching transactions in the billing area.
  • In the new version, lessons changes that are marked for a non-billable status in the Edit Attendance area (i.e. cancelled, late, rescheduled), were still being invoiced for some teachers. This has been resolved and going forward, lessons changes marked as non-billable will not show as money owed on invoices.
  • When adding a fee or a payment from the Attendance page in the calendar, notes were not always saving. That has been resolved so your notes will be visible and save properly.

Did you know that you and your students can record audio and video on the app?

If you haven’t downloaded the Android or iPhone app to your mobile device yet, we encourage you to do so! We’ve heard from several teachers that calling a student from their contacts list while they’re out, to checking schedules on the go, and tracking mileage for lessons outside the studio have been a lifesaver. Here’s a list of everything you can do with the app.

The app also has some functionality only found on the mobile device, such as the ability for you and your students to record audio and video. These recordings are then automatically uploaded your File area to view. Read this article on more specifics for recording audio and video.
