  2. We need a Book and Pay function for NEW & returning students to register, book & pay for their own lessons, for efficient connection

    This instant registration, book and pay is an faster way to connect with and new students and further guarantee commitment. We have been using another system with this feature and it has boosted our revenue at least 10% in less that 3 months. Please consider this excellent option!

  3. create a contact log for potential students.

    There should be a way to log the contact you have made with potential clients. You should also be able to mark which potential clients need follow up and be able to assign it to a member of your staff on their todo list.

  4. charge late fee

    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).

  5. Make A Choice For Grandparents Or Parents To Be Able To Pay For Invoices

    Third party billing would allow for a grandparent or outside person to pay for lessons instead of having to make them the students parents.

  6. Allow Selection of Multiple Students (not all or one) on Lessons Taught Report

    To have a report generated by selecting 1-4 students for a drop down list.

    e.g.
    Start Date:
    End Date:
    Teacher:
    Event Category:
    Student 1:
    Student 2:
    Student 3:
    Student 4:
    Attendance:

    For what this is asking about, it seems reasonable to do it in the relatively near future. That being said, it is not the most voted suggestion we’re looking at, so I can’t estimate how long it will be before doing it, but I can see a clear value to adding this.

  7. Add Teacher Status as Lessons Taught Report Option

    I have something that might be easily inputted into a lessons taught report.

    1) We have a lot of teachers who no longer teach for us.
    2) We don't want to lose a record of their past history (calendar events, attendance, etc.)
    3) There is an option to mark a teacher within his/her profile to a STATUS of "Active/Inactive/Former, etc."

    4) Can this STATUS be added to the list of options for running a LESSONS TAUGHT report?

    Happy to put this through the voting process, but it seems like an easy fix with almost no negative consequences.

    Hope all is…

  8. I'd like to be able to make an invoice from automatic billing for more than three months

    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.

    We have moved this to the planning stage as we are working out the details involved in doing this.

  9. 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.

  10. The idea of having to convert a payment to a credit is clumsy and adds unnecessary steps.

    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.

  11. Family discount

    It would be great to have a family discount option. A lot of Music Schools have discount rates when two or more people from the same family are students. Or if a person attends two or more different lessons/courses. So when you invoice, it automatically gives a discount based on your discount settings.

    This will be a new feature soon. For now you can always create a package for “Family Discount” and use a negative amount. When you invoice, add a line item, choose package and the family discount package. It will then adjust your invoice.

  12. 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.

    I hear you. As soon as this gets enough votes, the programmers will work on it. So keep voting!!

  13. Availability Times in Quarter Hours

    In the time drop down menus in teacher availability, there are options in 10 minute intervals. However, at my studio, we have many classes that run on the quarter hours. Could you add an option for 15 and 45 in there so that I can best line up teacher availability and class times?

    I have reopened this but it will still have to garner enough votes to be considered

  14. Allow parents to also be students

    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.

    Good News! We will be working on this so parents can also be students in one profile.

  15. 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.

  16. Track outstanding invoices based on the day the students have their lesson

    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.

  17. 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.

  18. Export all INVOICE data as a CSV file

    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.

  19. Create a way for students to "sign-in" for their lessons at a computer station.

    I have a studio of 14 instructors and close to 100 students. It would be wonderful and time saving if there was a way for a student to "sign-in" for their lessons at a computer station. They could sign in (rather than signing in on a sign-in sheet) and the system could record the attendance automatically to our records and their accounts. Big idea, but could it be possible?? That would be amazing!

  20. Make a space for "Studio Announcements" on the HOME page for Students

    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.
