Hi, Everyone. With the end of March around the corner, we hope your recent or planned spring recitals were a huge hit! With the new version of Music Teacher’s Helper, creating new events, such as recitals, can be done without having to leave the Calendar page. This saves you even more time when planning out your schedule. Once in the calendar, click the green Add New event button, select your event type and add the details on the pop-up screen.
Also, the new version has a Personal Appointment option. Personal Appointment allows you to create events without assigning a student, such as errands or a dentist visit. This makes it easier to create your entire schedule using the calendar and ensuring your personal and teaching schedule don’t get mixed up. (And remember that you can also sync the calendar up with Google Calendar or iCal, etc.).
As always, our team is working hard to keep your studio running smoothly. Several small fixes have been made but no notable fixes from this week to announce.
Did you know that you can make your own attendance statuses?
The new version allows you to fully customize the number and names of your attendance statuses. So, rather than tracking all lessons under Attended, Cancelled, or Missed, you can create a status to indicate when a student was “Late” or if you missed the lesson (oops!), you might mark it as “Teacher Absent”. Setting up your own attendance statuses is easy. Once in the new version, click your name in the top right and select Settings. Click the Calendar tab and scroll down to Lesson Settings. Clicking on the name of an existing status allows you to edit the name. You can also add additional statuses as well as view and edit statuses in your attendance report.
Don’t forget to click the Save Calendar Settings button at the bottom when you’re finished.
