  1. Create comprehensive Release Notes for New MTH version

    I learned today about a feature that will be present in the new release of MTH. I'll try to remember that this is available when I make the switch. However, I find it cumbersome to look for new features using the knowledge base on a one-by-one approach.

    I would like to suggest that MTH release a newsletter or some other global reference document outlining ALL the new features that we users can save as a pdf and use as a reference going forward.

    The regular monthly newsletter and blog are helpful, of course, but to capture all the information from…

    • Allow more control over when email reminders are sent.

      In the old version it was possible to specify which event categories reminder emails were sent for and which ones they were not sent for. In the new version, it seems to be all or nothing. This is very inconvenient for some teachers who don't want to "spam" their clients with reminders of regularly occurring lessons, but they do want to send reminders for things like recitals and other non-regular events.

      • Add a reorder function to the list of Links

        Currently the list of links that is part of the studio website does not permit any reordering. I have created a workaround by numbering the link titles beginning with 001 in order to generate a desired ordering. Would you consider making it possible to drag the link entries to a desired ordering? Ideally it would be helpful to create categories of links as well. Thank you for considering this!

        • 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!

                  Thank you for your suggestion. We will look to see if we can do this. As you pointed out though, there are standard forms online for anyone to use. All studios will have different policies so for now it is probably best to download and edit as you see fit for your studio. I am not sure a standard form would work for MTH as a whole since we do have studios/teachers worldwide, which means that the States will have different polices than Canada or Australia.

                  • Have account balance (amount due) appear on the student's dashboard

                    Right now when the student logs in, they see the amount paid last month and the amount paid this month, but the more useful number would be the amount that is currently due. I have a hard time training students to go to "Billing" and then "Transaction Log" to view the amount currently due. The link to the latest invoice is OK, but if I've made any changes to their account, that invoice is then out-of-date and won't reflect those changes, which has created confusion. It would be so great if they could see the amount due right when they…

                      • Show location address in lesson reminder emails and when viewing an event on the calendar

                        At the moment the only way to display the address of a "location" when reminder emails are sent to students is to type the location and address in the location field when you add a new location through the calendar. This means that the seperate address field might as well not be there!

                        Can it be changed so that BOTH the location and Address of the location are in emails sent to students AND viewable when you view an scheduled item on the calendar.

                          • Remind teacher of student anniversaries / start dates on dashboard

                            I would love to be able to track student anniversaries (start dates) as easily as the site currently tracks birthdays. It would be nice to be able to recognize student achievement in this way. Currently, the information can be accessed via a student contact info report, but it lacks the home page reminders and smooth email integration of the birthday tracking.

                            • due to problems with capcha form: now losing prospects

                              I've had a big drop-off on people signing up for my waiting list and after speaking to several parents on the phone, I discovered that it's because they couldn't get past the captcha form. One gentleman told me how frustrated he was that he tried it 4 or 5 times and could never read the proper letters or hear the audio clearly so he gave up.

                              I understand the usage of the capcha form is to prevent spam, but perhaps this version is not the answer. I use recapcha on another website and have had no issues with that. Perhaps…

                                  Specifically, I'd like to be able to setup a repeating event and give a start date, and not require an end date. It would then be very useful to be able to be able to edit a single event in the series (or even several events in the series, according to the idea already submitted for that), without breaking the continuity of the series as a whole, and also without having to affect dates I don't want. Kind of like a list of dates that are "exceptions" to the parameters of the main series, similar to the blocked dates idea,…

                                    I use an email service for some organizations I am on for their newsletters. I like this service, because it allows me to see the stats of the emails I sent out - how many opened it, did people click-through links, what time they opened it, what percentage of readers interacted with it, etc...
                                    There are many time when I have parents say "I didn't get that" or just simply not read it....
                                    This would be a HUGE piece of information for teachers to help find problematic students or families. Especially if they don't read their Lesson Notes emails or…

                                        • create a "available only to students with a make-up lesson credit" option when creating events that students can register for

                                          When scheduling and event (an "open" time slot for a student to register for a make-up lesson) make it available only to those students who have a make-up lesson credit available.

                                          I realize you can make any event available to all or just specific students, but boy would it be nice to just select "only those who have make-up lesson credits. It is time consuming to have to check your lesson credit list and check those specific students each time you create an "open" slot for students to register.
