Instant Booking and Lesson Swapping Are on Its way!

Hi everyone! I know we’re emailing you a lot lately, but there are so many new features and improvements we’re excited about that we know you’re going to love. In addition to the dozens we’ve already announced, here are several more you’ll get to start using soon.

New Lesson Swapping Feature

If you have a full roster or keep a tight schedule, you may encounter multiple requests for schedule changes each month. This can be time-consuming with all the emailing and calling students to switch. This feature allows parents/students to opt-in to lesson swapping, where they can submit a request to other students to swap lesson times. Students will feel guilt-free requesting a swap without having to “bug the teacher”. And for you – no more mediating or wasting time on swapping lessons for your students. Let this highly requested feature handle it for you!

Simpler Process for Creating and Editing Lessons and Events Right from Calendar Screen

Click and create an event within seconds by selecting a student’s name and time. Add details such as location, duration, and rate or allow it to default on your most common answers to save even more time. Clicking an existing event allows you to see important lesson information at once without having to jump to different screens. You can also easily edit event information right from the calendar pop-up.

Easier Online Booking for Students (Instant Booking)

Students can choose from your available time without you having to create specific lessons slots on the calendar. Mark your availability and unavailability and receive a notification once a new lesson is booked.

New Location View on Calendar

In addition to month, week, and day view, sort a day’s events on your calendar by location as a column for comparison. This can be helpful if you have a mix of lessons in your home studio, students’ homes, or additional places.

New Agenda View on Calendar

See all events listed out without empty space in between. This will be convenient to scan many events at once.

Set Default Category and Location

If you primarily teach one instrument and from one place, such as a home studio, setting a default category will save time when creating a new lesson event. If you teach multiple instruments and/or locations, selecting which is easy but setting the most common as default saves time.

Thank you for using Music Teacher’s Helper. These new features will make a big difference in how you run your studio and we’re so excited to make them available shortly!

Please don’t hesitate to contact support with any questions. Have a great weekend!
