  1. 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.

            • Have A Contact List For Non-Students, Teachers, Examiners, Music Festival Directors, Etc

              I am overall very happy with MTH. I have a couple of suggestions. First of all, it would be nice to have a separate section for non-student contacts, other teachers, examiners, music festival directors etc. I have these contacts listed elsewhere, but I think it would be even more convenient to have them all in one location.

              Thanks for the great service!

              • shorten the URL.

                When I'm designing advertising for the newspaper or simply updating my business cards, the long URL prohibits me from doing the layout I want. I'd like to see something like... www.studioname.mth.com or however it can be configured to be shorter than www.studioname.musicteachershelper.com

                  We’re looking into other options for shorter domain names. In the mean time, if you want a shorter URL, your can purchase a domain name from a domain registrar, such as GoDaddy.com and use their redirection tools to redirect the URL to your MTH website.

                • Possibility of students paying via internet transfer and not Paypal?

                  I live in New Zealand and I was wondering if it would be possible for Music Teachers Helper to enable my students to pay their lesson fees to me via online internet transfer, which is a free service in New Zealand. It's free because it's a service provided by each person's own bank, and is very quick and easy. I don't want to have to pay Pay Pal a fee if we can already use a free existing service. My only question is: will Music Teachers Helper enable this system? It is currenlty not an option, and the only current…

                  • sending confirmation of payment email

                    When I send the student a confirmation email for payment received, I would like to be able to separate lesson payments and music purchased so that it doesn't count it as income. Otherwise, I would have to send out 2 separate emails.

                    • Be able to indicate "Upon Receipt" in payment due date field (when creating invoices)

                      Rather than choosing a calendar date. Some studio parents pay consistently via their bank's bill pay/auto pay systems. It would be good for them to know they won't be charged a late fee if payment is not received by a particular date, but a specific date need not be specified on their invoice (just "upon receipt" or "asap").

                        • 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…

                            • 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.

                              • 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.

                                    I teach a group class weekly. Everyone pays the same fee on the same day and I mark it with the same memo. I'd like to be able to enter them all at once, meaning that I could enter more than one student into the first field at a time.

                                      make it possible to split fees for record keeping, when filing a payment.
                                      It would be great if one could insert 2 or more sets of "payments" when entering a payment, even if there is only one check/or payment made. The reason being: if you wish to record lesson income separately from book "income" or other fees, you must currently add the payment separately. I finally gave up on this and just make notes in the box provided for notes. However, this is not at all convenient when recapping income/fees etc.…

                                      • Darker Calendar colour for highlighting "today "

                                        A small but efficient user friendly difference.
                                        Pale yellow really does not jump from a white background :
                                        I would love a more obvious colour that highlights "today" and make it pop out.
                                        I always have to look for it .
                                        Thank you,

                                          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.
