  1. 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.

                  • 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.

                        • 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

                          • 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…

                              • 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.
