Software Updates – Group Lesson Attendance, Profile Photos & Rate Packages

This week, we’re announcing three more exciting upcoming feature improvements that will be ready later this month.

Set Attendance Separately for Each Student in a Group Lesson 

You will soon have the option to set individual attendance for group lessons. Sometimes it’s helpful to provide individual lesson notes for a student in a group lesson and setting their attendance individually will allow this. You’ll still have the efficient option to set attendance collectively and send off notes to the entire group. This highly requested improvement provides an additional option with more flexibility.

Student Profile Photos

One of the upcoming improvements to the student area will be the option to add a student profile photo. For larger studios, it’s nice to put a face to a name, especially for those new students. And your students will have a more personalized experience when using Music Teacher’s Helper.  

More Customizable Rate Options

 

Rates settings Cropped No Border

Last but not least, rates will be updated so you can have greater flexibility and customization in how you charge your students and update your rates for multiple students at once. Rather than only being able to charge per lesson or a flat fee, under the new rates feature you will be able to set up rate packages to:

  • Bill hourly, weekly, monthly, or by  semester
  • Charge for a series of lessons (a set amount for a certain number of lessons that you specify)
  • Bill up front in a lump sum or pro-rate the amount over the rate package
  • Choose to receive a reminder to reschedule a student when they are nearing the end of the lessons they paid for

All of this will be managed from one easy place in your Settings so you can create, edit and remove rate packages as needed and then assign each student a particular rate package that meets both their needs and schedule as well as yours.
