    • Post all birthdays(current/former/waiting list) on calendar.

      Recently you featured the current students' birthdays on the calendar and it was a great idea! I switched over to the Beta version and noticed that it featured EVERY birthday ever entered from anyone who had ever registered on my site.

      This. Was. Awesome.

      I immediately saw the benefit in this! I quickly had some birthday postcards printed and began sending them to these students who were not currently enrolled. I gave them a discount on the first month of lessons and offered a free gift if they came into the studio. It was a brilliant plan to reach those…

      • Change programming on the automatic "invitation to lesson" emails

        On the new system these go out for any event as scheduled on the calendar, and have confused students and cluttered inboxes (actually, mine always go to junk mail!). It would be good if there was a way to edit the template, and/or disable it. I could change the word "lesson" to "concert" or "party", or just click "no thanks" if I am filling the calendar with lessons which they are expecting me to schedule and will get reminders for later anyway. Or at the least, if we could just change our settings to include or not include this invitation…

        • Enter Application of Makeups Credits as Line Item in Invoices

          It would be MUCH easier to communicate with parents/clients about makeups if the application of makeup credit was listed as a line item in the invoices.

          Also, if listing makeups owed was an option on the invoices, as well.

          • Set an initial prorated amount for late-starting students, then revert to regular rate.

            In Rates, make it possible to set different amounts, and to set the beginning and end of a time period - this is helpful for students joining in mid-trimester, so they start at one initial rate, then another regular rate takes over. Also add trimesters.

              • Add the term "points" to the practice log

                I am a teacher who believes in awarding points for the amount of times an exercise or piece is practiced. It helps my young ones better focus on each assignment. I have set already set the criteria for them to earn the points, it's just a matter of word choice recording them. Would you consider adding the term "points" to the minutes practiced section?

                  • Please allow sub categories for expenses.

                    Sub categories will allow the expense reports to more closely follow how we use data at tax time, while being able to monitor expenditures that make up the main categories. For instance on my tax return there is a main category called "supplies" , subcategories may include drumsticks, sheet music, folders, etc... Thank you for considering.

                    • HTML formatting on the Attendance page

                      I love that you make it possible to use HTML formatting when I write individual lesson notes via the Calendar page but I would love it even more if it was possible when working on the "Attendance" page.

                          • Lesson names - allow students names to be drag and dropped into a time

                            If you could drag a students name and place it quickly into the calandar that would makde creating lesson times a lot easier and quicker. You would need to set your studio lesson times first so you could then drag a students name into it.

                                • Can makeup credits expire on a date rather than a set number of months?

                                  It would be so helpful to me to set makeup credits to expire on a date I choose. I like having an expiration date because it saves me time. But if I choose the last day of the teaching year I wouldn't need to go through every student's credits.

                                  Makeup credits issued from September 2016 expire in May 2017. And January credits also expire in May.

                                  • Incorporate an email verification field onto the registration form

                                    Most online account-creation forms require new registrants to enter their email address, then require re-entering the email address into a separate field that verifies that the contents of both fields match. This is to eliminate false or mis-typed email addresses. If the two fields don't match, the user sees an error message that the email addresses don't match, and they cannot proceed until they correct the mis-entry. It would be great if MTH would have that on their reg form as well - it would eliminate emails being sent to incorrect addresses, as well as administrative time for teachers.

                                    • Non-income fees using PayPaal

                                      When students pay using PayPal, the payment should be allocated as charged (e.g. music charge, festival, or audition fee) . Currently you have to manually change these types of fees so they are not counted as income.

                                      • Allow the user to set a preferred sort default (alphabetically by last name).

                                        Suggestion please?
                                        Student lists anywhere on MTH.
                                        Allow the user to set a preferred sort default (alphabetically by last name) that remains every time the page is opened. I would rather not have to set the sort every time. Thanks!

                                        • Allow splitting make up credits...

                                          Many times I will have to split a makeup credit into 2 half hour sessions instead of a 1hour session. It would be helpful if I could split them up as needed. This happens to me every week. Thanks!
