    • 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.

      • 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.

        • Billing reminders

          There needs to be a way of there being a reminder as to when an account goes to 0 instead of manually checking every student as to when their credit runs out

          • 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!

              • Create Invoice From Transaction Log Screen

                Allow invoice creation from the Transaction Log. Put a button that says "CREATE INVOICE" next to the "+ ADD FEE" button.

                • Add "Money Paid" column to Attendance page

                  On the Attendance page where you can set details on multi students at once including attendance, and description, etc....there should be a column for how much the student paid so that I don't have another extra step of going back into each separate student and adding a payment. And also make the "Cost" column changeable for certain circumstances. You can change everything else on the page but that, and it's missing the "Money Paid" column to say what and how (check, cash, other....) they paid.

                  • Bring back the checks and Xs from old calendar mode

                    I depend a lot on being able to quickly look at my calendar and see which lessons were cancelled, missed, or attended, and the new beta mode has done away with the little icons that show that next to each event! Please bring them back!

                    • Ability to itemize "previous balance" on invoice

                      Instead of having to post-date fees (including books, materials, recital fees, etc) so that they show up in the next month's invoice, or having to include past months in the invoice, I would so love if there was the option for the "previous balance" to include an itemized description. For example:

                      Previous balance:

                      Books and Materials:
                      1/15/17 - Playtime Rock and Roll - $20
                      1/16/17 - Magnetic Board - $10

                      Fees:
                      1/2/17 - Recital fee for 2 students - $16

                      Or if that's not possible, how about allowing for the ability to include previous months in the invoice, but having…

                      • Allow partial usage of banked makeup time

                        I quite often refund makeups in increments; I will normally add 15 minutes to the end of lessons until a student is made up. This is currently not really possible with your system. I think it would be very useful.

                        • enter makeup data as line item on invoices

                          You should print the used/banked makeup time as a text line item on the invoices. This would clear things up a LOT when communicating with clients.

                          • 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.

                              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.

                                I would like to send automatic calendar announcements from my studio calendar. The announcements are recurring (current calendar week, makeup lesson week, no lesson weeks).

                                Currently I set them up as events which means I have to set a date and time. When the email reminder is sent to parents it looks like a lesson or group reminder, and people get confused.

                                • May I suggest that it seems a little odd having to go through and activate parents as well to communicate with them - wouldn't

                                  May I suggest that it seems a little odd having to go through and activate parents as well to communicate with them - wouldn't it make more sense that they activate together? It's not like you'd activate the child and not need to contact the parent. Also, this isn't at all obvious for new users IMO. Just my constructive feedback.

                                  • 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 .

                                    • Emoticons in lesson notes & Printing

                                      It would be nice to be able to include emoticons in lesson notes and then to print those notes straight from the iPAD

                                      • 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.
