Hi everyone. This week several updates were done in the background by our development team to keep the software running smoothly. In addition, there have been minor updates and fixes to the Android app with ones to the iOS app coming shortly.
- New Feature: Make Private Calendar Events – A small but big change! You can create a private event from the Add New event button in the calendar tab. That way, you can prevent a student from requesting a lesson during a time you are busy like a dentist appointment in the middle of the day or if you’re meeting with a prospective student that isn’t added to your Student List yet.
- Updated: Studio Sites to use HTTPS – Information is now more securely sent when a registration form and other data is submitted on studio your site using SSL certificates. SSL (that extra “s” on HTTP) is used to better encrypt the transmitted information over websites.
Google also prefers more secure sites, therefore Google gives a ranking advantage in search engines to secure HTTPS websites. This helps your website show up when someone types in your studio, or music lessons and your geographic location.
You won’t need to change the way you type your studio address into web browsers. Any proper typing of your website will automatically direct to the more secure HTTPS.
- Fixed: When using bulk email, it now only sends to the student list shown. For some teachers it was previously sending to all students, including Former students.
