  1. Post all birthdays(current/former/waiting list) on calendar.

    Recently you featured the current students' birthdays on the calendar and it was a great idea! I switched over to the Beta version and noticed that it featured EVERY birthday ever entered from anyone who had ever registered on my site.

    This. Was. Awesome.

    I immediately saw the benefit in this! I quickly had some birthday postcards printed and began sending them to these students who were not currently enrolled. I gave them a discount on the first month of lessons and offered a free gift if they came into the studio. It was a brilliant plan to reach those…

    • Add the term "points" to the practice log

      I am a teacher who believes in awarding points for the amount of times an exercise or piece is practiced. It helps my young ones better focus on each assignment. I have set already set the criteria for them to earn the points, it's just a matter of word choice recording them. Would you consider adding the term "points" to the minutes practiced section?

      • Award "badges" to student accounts

        Create a feature where "badges" can be awarded to a student account to reward them for good work or accomplishments, i.e. practicing regularly, perfecting a piece, improving in ear training, etc. Once students get a couple badges, they will be motivated to add to their collection and watch it grow! Check out Classbadges.com to get an idea what I mean: http://www.classbadges.com/

        • allow clients to pay through the app

          My clients want to be able to not have to go online or through their email to pay invoices. They have requested to be able to pay directly through the app.

          • Please allow sub categories for expenses.

            Sub categories will allow the expense reports to more closely follow how we use data at tax time, while being able to monitor expenditures that make up the main categories. For instance on my tax return there is a main category called "supplies" , subcategories may include drumsticks, sheet music, folders, etc... Thank you for considering.

            • HTML formatting on the Attendance page

              I love that you make it possible to use HTML formatting when I write individual lesson notes via the Calendar page but I would love it even more if it was possible when working on the "Attendance" page.

              • Track Teacher Attendance

                Please have a way for lesson attendance to differentiate visually, instantly on the calendar between lessons the teacher canceled ahead and lessons the student cancels ahead (note, this is different than missed or attended lessons).

                    • Lesson names - allow students names to be drag and dropped into a time

                      If you could drag a students name and place it quickly into the calandar that would makde creating lesson times a lot easier and quicker. You would need to set your studio lesson times first so you could then drag a students name into it.

                      • Enter payments from multiple students at once.

                        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.

                        • Allow students to pay directly into a business bank accountant rather than via paypal.

                          It's good that students have a wide range of methods to make payment but it would be better if the teacher could collect these payments directly into a business bank account (essentially an online transfer), rather than having to go through paypal and paying their fees.

                              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.

                                  • Add Search box in transaction log, PLEASE!

                                    Hello,

                                    I am so frustrated that every time I go into the Transaction Log I have no option but to scroll down to find the student I need to view. Is it possible to add a Search box at the top of the page to make this easier?

                                    On the plus side, the MOBILE app is SO much improved! Thank you!

                                    • 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 a small print section option to invoices.

                                        I have a cancellation policy and other standard info that I'd like to be available and visible to all students and parents, especially when their invoice arrives. Would it be possible to add a small print section that appears on every invoice? The current "notes" section at the bottom isn't suited for that.
