  1. 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.

    • Better Reports On The Parent Side

      Most of parent reports have more or less the same info even though it says they are different reports. The reports have info duplicated in various columns; they are set up for payment by lessons, even if the teacher charges by month or semester; the columns to leave notes for the parents are so narrow that they really only allow a one short sentence comment before it starts to look very unprofessional; there are different menu options that say they offer different reports that lead to the same report; there is no simple basic financial report the parent can access.

      • An undo setting for calendar events

        I mistakenly deleted group classes from the beta calendar. I can't do anything about it. Those classes charge a fee on student invoices and now the dates are lost.
        People make mistakes. Windows offers an Undo button on docs; a life saver! An undo button could save a person a lot of time and frustration.

        • Create user profiles for additional teachers/administrators to manage

          In short, several teachers work for me. I would like them to be able to log in and manage lesson schedules and notifications and library/Lending on their own, and without logging into my account to do anything with finances or invoices. I love that parents can log in, so I would like to be able to create multiple management profiles as well. Since I've invested lots of time and money in musicteachershelper, I would prefer not switching to studiohelper.com .

          • instrument list

            Can we please add euphonium and baritone to the "add instrument" list? You may also consider sub-categories for clarinet (Bb, alto, bass) and saxophone (soprano, alto, tenor, and baritone). Thanks—Lauren

            • "family" groups that aren't family

              Rather than grouping people who pay for each other into "adult student" and "child student," have an option for sets of people who are both adults but who may pay for each other (e.g. couples.) Also allow for these people to be separated at any time should their payment situation change.

                • Privacy for families enrollments

                  Keep registration names private so other families cannot see the amount of enrollment in the group lessons, or who is in what to help maintain family privacy.

                  • Create themes that are more consistent with website design

                    I notice that all of the Prime Themes are merely variations of color/fonts. I would suggest that MTH develop more current themes that use very simple, clean lines, more imagery, etc. according to 2015+ design practices

                    • new payment tab

                      Make a payment tab from any screen as a pop out so we don't have to loose our workflow if we have to add a payment in the middle of our work.

                      • Create invoice categories...

                        I bill my performance clients with MTH as well as my students. This keeps my calendar straight for all music work. But it says "lesson charges" on the invoice. I have created categories such as gigs, rehearsals, recordings for scheduling clients but on the invoice it still shows "lesson charges". It can be confusing to a recording client. Thank you.

                          • Add "DAY" on notifications & invoices, not just date & time.

                            I suggest the addition of the variable {$lessonDay} be added to the e-mail template options, so that it's not just the date and time, but the actual day shows up too.

                            Also, when an invoice is created on the new or old system it should show the DAY as well as the date and time. Why is this not already the status quo? It just seems practical to have the DAY that the lesson is scheduled listed on invoices and e-mail notifications. People don't process just a DATE to the correct DAY sometimes, and it's caused me to have to…

                            • MTH App - Calendar color coded

                              What if the green color change in the calendar after the teacher puts the attendance?

                              Could be four colors
                              1. Green for Attended
                              2. Black for Missed
                              3. Red for Re-schedule
                              4. Gray for Cancelled

                              It would be cool and visually easier to see my students' attendance status in the calendar and the same at the left side in the list of history with colors.

                                If we have a custom location set up for lessons on MTH it would be great for the address to be included in the calendar sync. Some map apps support notifactions to tell you when to leave for your next appointment based on traffic data.

                                  I rely on the sync feature so much, and this is difficult. I rely on the sync when making my calendar for the school year. I plan out more than 9 months and need to be able to resolve schedule conflicts. Syncing 9 months into the future covers the school year.

                                  • Manage a Musical Group List like Orchestra with Grades and Custom Observation for each student.

                                    I have student groups (like orchestra). It will be a great feature if
                                    in the calendar or student management section, can add grades to each student and have a list of students of
                                    the orchestra with some information in that list (like
                                    instrument, and custom observations). All orchestra list in the same page with grade, exams results with topic, and custom observations like good
                                    job, or you have to practice more, etc. More important feature
                                    for me is save the grade progress (100%, etc) .Is that possible?
                                    Thanks.

                                    • Report Area--Numbering for summary reports

                                      It would be great if we had a field that numbers the list of summary of students. That would be helpful. For reporting to know how many students you have at a quick glance.

                                      • Have a spot to enter the child student's age and gender

                                        Under "Student Information" "Miscellaneous Information" there is no
                                        spot for the child's age. If we enter the Child's birthday, it should be
                                        calculated (and updated) automatically in a box labeled "Age"
                                        Under "Student Information" there is no place to mark if the child is
                                        a boy or a girl. You can't always tell by the name. These days you
                                        probably need a third box you can check marked "other" and a comment box to go with it so you can write notes like boy, but wants to be called a
                                        girl.

                                          The app drains the battery life even if it's not running. I use the Android platform.
