  1. Recurring Fees for students

    It would be good to have a facility to charge students a recurring fee, rather than having to remember to manually enter a fee each week. I rent out instruments for beginners and want to charge them a recurring fee for the amount of weeks they are using it - it's rather tedious doing this manually. The only current work around is to set the charge up as a calendar event, but then you have to see it in your calendar view the whole time.

    • Remove MTH name from teacher/student website

      Make the login page show nothing of "music teacher's helper". To give an example, when I log into my T-mobile page, it says "T-mobile", not "Company who helped T-mobile create their website". I want my student/parent login page to show my business name, my logo, and not MTH. That is "Behind the scenes", and students don't need to see that anywhere on their account. Thank you ! ! !

          • Add capability for use of Facebook pixel (analytics) -allows better use of Facebook ads.

            Facebook ads for classes and lessons can be very effective because of audience targeting and analytics that one can follow. This either needs a wordpress platform or a plugin.

            • Create a place where future planned repertoire can be kept

              I like to plan ahead and keep a database for each student. Included would be future repertoire ideas, a place to chart theory and technique, etc.
              [Description from other merged ticket]: What about a feature that allowed you to bank future repertoire ideas for the student? It could be attached to the existing repertoire feature, or perhaps lesson notes, or even when you log into the student information. Any notes, competitions you have in mind, future directions you see the lessons going would be an invaluable part of this feature.

                • Customize thransaction log to sho/not show some fields

                  Customize transaction log. When exporting to Excel we really don't want a lot of space clogged up with lesson notes, don't really need them in the transaction log at all, surely?

                    I’ll put this under review to see if we can have a checkbox option on “what” you want to export. Many teachers like having the lesson notes on the transaction log. Once your report is downloaded you can right click the column headings for the things you do not want and delete the entire column so they are not in your report when saving.

                  • Separate the Current and Former Students Transaction Log

                    My transaction log takes over 30 seconds to load. I was told this may be due to the large number of students. Is there a way to separate the Current Students Transaction Log from the Former Students, so they do not both load at once? It would be nice to have the option to view one or the other or both.

                    • enable mass editing of all reoccuring events even after the invoice has been sent out.

                      Once the term invoice has been sent out, if I need to change the regular lesson day and time for a student for the rest of the term, I have to manually edit each event individually, which is very time consuming. It would be great if I could mass edit them still.

                      • Make Cancelled Lessons Automatically Apply Makeup Credit

                        It is very cumbersome to follow up on lessons cancelled by students and re-cancelling them to apply makeup credit (especially since the mobile version of MTH is limited, and this function is not possible on my phone).

                        We should have the ability to automatically apply makeup credit to lessons cancelled by students.

                        • Let the student contribute to the lesson notes, or repertoire tracker.

                          Let the student contribute to the lesson notes, or repertoire tracker. They email youtube links of songs to learn to my Gmail account now and it would be nice to have it under one roof. MAny thanks, BL

                          • ability to select a student's lesson notes in a scrollable list and the ability to download all attached audio/video files offline

                            I use MTH to send lesson notes to my students after each lesson. I write them on my PC. This is very convenient.

                            However, I then copy the notes into Evernote to keep a record and for use when teaching at students' homes. I plan my lessons in Evernote and add the previous lesson notes from MTH. I don't teach at my home.

                            I have an Evernote notebook for each student and create a dated note within this notebook for each lesson. This means that when I am teaching at their home, I have a fast overview of all their…

                              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.

                              • 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 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.
