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.13 votes
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.10 votes
Good News! We will be working on this.
When students log in, the only "people" that they can see are their own family. It would be good if their teacher's name and email address would be in the drop-down menu - as well as the contact email for the studio.7 votes

Please add the ability to export all INVOICE data as a CSV file. We are able to CSV export payment and expense data, but not invoices.
Whilst I'm not expecting StudioHelper to integrate seamlessly into every type of accounting system out there, the ability to do a simple text-based exports of invoices is vital, giving us the opportunity to link in to nearly all accounting packages, especially cloud-based systems such as XERO and SAASU.20 votes
Good News! We have moved this to the planning stage and will be working on the details for this.
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.20 votes
Good News! We will be working on this, this year.
Is it possible to have another online payment system other then Paypal for Australian users? Low fees and minimal fuss without signing up to Paypal. This would be good to include to option for some studios who run events or hire out studios to have ability to pay at the door with POS app device's too. More efficient and clean.7 votes
Good news! We will be integrating Stripe as an additional option for you.
Can SH email, or text, the teacher their schedule every day (or their attendance page every day/morning)?
Could each teacher at my studio have the option of being sent a text or email on their smartphone every morning to remind them of their daily schedule prior to the upcoming day. Or could they be sent their attendance page for that current day?
Also could any scheduled events which might be added, deleted or changed on their schedule, on that current day, also be texted and/or emailed to them so they do not have to remain chained to a computer while teaching, and their schedules are truly live.14 votes
Good News! We will be working on a daily summary for SH.
It would be great to be able to charge a late fee automatically to invoices that are past due (and have this be an option on each invoice). For example, we charge a $15.00 late fee for all tuition not paid by the 15th of that month. It would be nice to set our recurring tuition invoices to generate a $15.00 late fee when the invoice is not "paid" by that date (so by the 16th or whatever).41 votes
This is still something that is planned, but there is a high degree of complexity around the fine details on how this should function.
It would be great to have standard regstration pages for private lessons, art classes, etc... right now i'm doing double entry for each new student.4 votes
We’ll be working on a new registration and booking system that will make it easier for students to register for specific classes, or for you to do so with a much simpler interface. This is still a ways off, but we wanted to let you know we’re planning on it.
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.13 votes
This is something we’d like to do at some point, so I’ve updated the status to ‘Planned’.
It would be really helpful to have the option to upload student pictures. Once the student database increases, it's really difficult to track if the students who paid the fees are the actual students who go inside the classes.
We will be working on this, this year.
I don't want to have to apply money paid at a lesson as a CREDIT and make up invoices that will never be sent, in order to apply the credit. This should not be necessary. I just want to be able to add the money and send a receipt to the parent. Please add this option under payments.25 votes
It would be very convenient if students and parents logging onto the site would automatically be taken to a home page that might contain studio announcements that would be relevant to all, such as holiday schedule, recitals, concerts, recommended events/programs for students to attend, etc.17 votes
Great idea! We’re looking into something like this for a future version of Studio Helper. Thanks for the suggestion.
It would be nice to be able to choose the ending date for an invoice so I can use automatic billing from the calendar for more than three months. Many parents like to pay twice a year or year in advance.29 votes
We have moved this to the planning stage as we are working out the details involved in doing this.
Allow an option to send text messages in addition to emails to remind students of upcoming events.16 votes
I have several parents of students who also take lessons themselves. I would like the parent of a student to be able to register as a student.22 votes
Good News! We will be working on this so parents can also be students in one profile.
