  1. Miss-Clicks deleting classes

    We have had several classes deleted in error, and not picked up on untill a teaches says their pay is short.

    When you click on a class in the calendar a dialogue box opens, At the bottom of the box are: EDIT, DELETE, CANCEL EVENT, [SPACE] to lower the instances of "miss-clicks" it would be helpful to reorder as EDIT, [SPACE] CANCEL EVENT, DELETE

    • make the categories display in a set order

      It would be great to see the categories display in a set order, rather than according to the date they are created. This would make it easier and faster to add events to the schedule. Is it possible to have them display alphabetically, or better yet to allow studios to customize their order? We could have all the piano teachers together, all the voice, etc. What do you think?

      • Please consider linking "Closure Dates" to "Locations"

        I have multiple locations and they all have differing vacation schedules... This poses a problem when I set the closure dates and then try and add lessons in these weeks for other locations. There aren't any decent work-arounds currently, besides deleting the closure dates, which would impact everything else.

        I hope you do consider this please!

        Thank you!

        • Custom Permissions...Create, Edit, Delete events on calendar

          It would be great if you could separate the Create, Edit, Delete events on calendar options under permissions. For example some instructors I allow more freedom than others to adjust their schedules. Likewise, I don’t necessarily want anyone to be able to delete events so it seems that this permission option should be more flexible. Is there a way to customize this per instructor?

          • Show Teacher availability by the week

            In order to let students know when teachers are available to teach lessons during the week, it would be easier to visually see the teachers' availability for the full week on one screen.

            It could be a feature that must have only one teacher's schedule up at one time, but that would at least lead to a better way of communication for students. This also allows for a more clear representation to decide on make-up times.

            • make it possible to enroll new students with a teacher directly from the calendar event page

              When getting new students set up, right now it is necessary to first enroll the student with their teacher from their student page (under People), and then they can be added to their lesson "event" (on the Calendar). It would save a lot of time and be more intuitive to be able to enroll the student directly from the event page of the lesson we've created for them, rather than having to do a two-step process for each student.

              • Create ability to add multiple packages in calendar event

                It would be useful to be able to create multiple packages in the one calendar event with a particular student. In this case as a mobile tutor we need to add on a travel fee per student

                • Event invitations - YES/NO/MAYBE answers

                  Hi, just like in other calendars, for example Google, I think it's very important to add "yes/now/maybe" answer to an event invitation. That way the teacher and school both know if the invitation was delivered to the student.

                  • Add more colors on Events so can color code Teachers & Events

                    We have a large studio and color code events (recitals, etc.) and all teachers. We need more than 24 colors.

                    • Student Clash

                      In the calendar section I would like to be able to see when I register my students for a particular class whether there are any clashes i.e. the same student being registered for two or more events in the same time slot on the same day. At the moment this option is only available for scheduling teachers. There is a pop-up window, warning the user that a teacher is already registered to teach another class at this time. I think it would be very convenient if as well as for teachers a pop-up warning appeared when a student is being…

                      • Create a quick way to see that Studio/ Location/ Teacher is unavailable on calendar without seeing event details

                        We want everyone, regardless of permissions, to be able to see that certain times are BOOKED on the calendar when they log in! These times should include studio-wide Blackout days (holidays, etc), when locations are full, or when teachers are booked. This would be SO helpful for parents and teachers trying to schedule makeup lessons!! Could be as simple as a color change and would be an easy expansion of your already in-development Calendar Blackout option.

                        • Improve calendar navigation among recurring events

                          Provide method within the event screen to navigate to next and previous events among a recurring series of events. It could be just links that say "next | previous" or something similar.

                          It would also be helpful to have a direct link to the teacher and student profile pages from within the event screen.

                          • Add other repeating options

                            It would be great to be able to set the calendar to repeat an event on designated weeks such as on the 2nd Tuesday of each month. Currently there are only repeating options in week blocks; if you have a program that happens on the 2nd and 4th weeks, any month with 5 Tuesdays throws this whole cycle off. Vote for this and I'll give you a cookie.

                              Right now, the calendar shows all teachers on all days. It should only show the teachers who have availability on that day so that you don't have to filter teachers every time you look at a different day.

                                  • Add the ability to Mouse-over an event/lesson in Calendar to view lesson notes, attendance, etc.

                                    Add the ability to Mouse-over or Click on an event/lesson in Calendar to view lesson notes, attendance, etc. MTH has this option and its awesome! i.e To check what you did with a student the week before you can simply go to a previous date, click on the event, and the lesson notes, attendance, etc pops up.

                                    • Managing Locations Availability

                                      My studio is shared with another organization. The locations I use to teach in vary through out the week. I need to be able to edit the times allowed for each individual room. This would mean a room could only be scheduled if:

                                      1) the room is available

                                      and

                                      2) the teacher is available

                                      right now I can only manage global studio times and teachers times...i need to be able to manage location times as well

                                        • 2 way sync between studio helper and google calandar and/or iPhone.

                                          This is important because I would like to make quick changes from my iphone when I'm not near a computer, and have my personal schedule update to studio helper so I don't get scheduled for lessons when I'm unavailable.
