  1. Point of Sale (POS)

    Better Support for: Inventory, Sales, Bar code generator, Bar code scanner, Receipt printer, Cash Drawer. We are building a store to support our 130 + students and would rather be able to integrate student lesson payments with the store and visa versa. Could you provided a way to upload inventory from a spread sheet (csv file). 100 pieces of sheet music from one supplier will require me to hire some one just to input the data one at a time, No thanks!

      Thanks for sharing your requirements with us. We may consider including these feaatures in our next upgrade depending on how other users respond to your ideas.

    • Please add a detailed report for itemized sales tax collected.

      Please add a detailed report for itemized sales tax. Lesson are not taxable, however music books, Tshirt etc are taxable. A report is needed that can be filterable by date (year/quarter), and will show all invoices that include taxable inventory. The ability to pull a report that has an itemized list of sales taxes paid is critical for accounting purposes. It needs to be filterable by date, amount, invoice number and includes a total so we don't have to go through a whole year of invoices just to look for tax amounts. Thank you!--Cynthia Vaughn, Magnolia Music Studio

      • Accept ACH payments and automatically bill for accrued charges on student accounts from the "auto billing from calendar" feature.

        It would be great if there was a way to accrue charges on student accounts for individual lessons from the calendar, choosing a start and end date (i.e. one month), and then automatically charge credit cards and withdrawal funds from checking accounts through ACH payments. This would be a convenience for both the studio and the students!

        • Split an invoice to bill more than one person/party

          The following scenarios require splitting an invoice and sending to two different persons/parties:

          1) If a student's parents are divorced or separated, but share the cost of lessons
          2) If a student or class is partially funded by a third party. For example: We teach a music class to one of the Children's programs, which pays half of the tuition. The other half is paid through an endowment fund. Both entities need to be invoiced each month.

          • 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

            • Messages for teacher on 1st page that opens

              on the first page that opens when a teacher logs in there should be a message center to tell the teacher any important things like messages, cancellations, changes to the schedule since their last login etc. like an internal messaging center for the staff and teacher to communicate with one another through the studio helper.

              • Add a Lesson History TAB to the students profile.

                Could you please add a Lesson History TAB to the students profile so that all of a students lesson history/notes/attendance is available to view in one place. Thanks!

                • Add "Lead" as a new student category and create a customizable mailing list form so that we can capture leads from our website.

                  It would be good to know what the webform was attached to so we could place those leads in specific categories.

                  • Automatic Client/Teacher Tailored Schedules

                    The schedule of events that can be downloaded into excel should also have the student and teacher contact information as an option and our company contact information.

                    • Mass Update Feature For Invoices

                      It would be nice to be able to update multiple invoices at once just as you can mass select and print invoices or mass delete. This would allow a studio to update all invoices at the end of a month and apply any credit to the next invocie (or see any lesson schedule changes) without having to manually go through each invoice.

                      • Packages to be Exportable

                        We have a lot of packages registered. Maintaining them within studiohelper has gotten very difficult. We are not able to compare what was previously there and what has been changed.
                        We need a functionality to export the packages out as excel or csv.

                            You can use the remote registration form feature that you will find in Settings > Remote Access. The website features are not yet available in Studio Helper but its already included in the client wish list for possible consideration.

                          • Add logo to studio helper interface

                            It would be great to be able to add your company's logo to the interface of Studio Helper, instead of the plain text in the top left corner of the screen.

                              It would be nice to see who has an outstanding balance based on the day they are on the calendar. For example. It's Tuesday and I want to make a list of outstanding invoices for people who are coming in JUST on Tuesday.

                                Music Teachers Helper has a repertoire tracker that I and the teachers in my studio really like. It would be great to see the same repertoire tracker in Studio Helper.

                                • Make the 1/2hr times visible on the calendar(i.e. 3:30) Make them a bit darker across the calendar to distinguish them from the ":00" spots.

                                  The Calendar would be easier to read if the 1/2 hr times were visible. So it read on the side 3, 330, 4, 430, etc. not just on the hour. It would also be great if on the 1/2hr times on the calendar they were a bit darker to distinguish them from the hr. times. Basically, it would make the Calendar easier to read if you added those times and darkened every other line. Thanks!

                                  • A Real Time Calendar

                                    Is there any way to have Studio Helper refresh the Calendar page in real time? For instance with "Google Docs" a document can be viewed by multiple users at the same time and adjusted by one user (or many) and everyone sees these "realtime adjustments" without refreshing the page or screen. This would certainly help our studio with 10+ rooms running concurrently sometimes and the summer schedule changes that occur daily and oftentimes hourly. This would definitely save our office manager time and my staff would always be "live."

                                    With Google (for instance) all realtime adjustments made by the manager…

                                    • add a cash sale invoice so we can use it for studio's that have retail stores as also

                                      for studio's that have retail stores as well need to have a cash sale invoice so the customer does not need to stand there while we input the 2 step process of creating an invoice then going in and paying for the invoice. In the cash sale you would enter the invoice and you would input how they pd cheque, cash or visa and then it would be marked pd all on the same page.

                                      • Remove the area that shows you the name of your studio and today's date. Put in in that small area next to Overview | Help.

                                        This is a HUGE waste of space on my screen. A lot of us have MacBook Airs, iPads or netbooks. On these screens that banner is a huge waste of screen real estate. In the calendar screen, for example, when I expand categories or locations on the right, I can only see three options at a time. Maybe you could have an option in settings for compact view vs. expanded view.

                                        • Have invoices track changed events, automatically update when the student schedule changes

                                          If my client comes every tuesday, and we invoice them accordingly for, say, March, but then in the middle of the month they change their appointments to Wednesdays:

                                          The tuition from the previous invoice isn't applied. E.G. Studio Helper will see the events as "new" and invoice for them. I'm not talking about deleting/starting another event. If I just change the event to permanently another day, studio helper sees it as a new thing. Shouldn't the program automatically update invoices when they are affected by event changes.

                                          2.
