      It would be nice to be able to search for people using phone number or address or something other than just their name.

        • Alphabetize Registration drop down menu

          Hey,

          We run a music school with a LOT of different course offerings. Students often take more than one lesson (vocals AND ukulele AND a group class, etc) and want everything available as a line item on their bill.

          As a result, we have had to make a huge number of packages in the registration section.
          Right now, if I go to the registration section of SH...all of the packages sort alphabetically.
          If I try to pick a registration package the drop down menu on the student's page...the packages appear chronologically (according to creation date).

          This makes searching among our…

          • Allow Student Pictures in JPEG format

            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.
            Thanks!

            • 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.

              • Be able to change/edit events from calendar view, rather than having to go to the event

                You can currently "delete" an event form calendar view, which saves allot of time, rather than having to go to the event profile and click delete. It would be nice to have the option to set an event to canceled, or change title, or move time, without having to click to the event profile, and lose your calendar view. For example: if I get a call to change someone's lesson around, it makes it easy to just plug in the new time for that makeup lesson, rather than have to go to the event time, and make sure I'm not…

                • 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.

                  • make alerts for students when they've been on the roster for a full year.

                    Similar to the birthday alerts on the Overview screen, an alert for student 'anniversaries' would be very helpful to client retention! We try to give students some reward when they hit a year with us, and this feature would help ensure that we don't miss any! Thanks for considering.

                    • Make A Checkbox For Duplicate Info On The Registration Form

                      When filling out the parent of a student on the registration form, often times there is duplicate information (email, phone, etc..). It would make it much more seamless if there was an option on the parents reg. form next to these boxes you could check that would carry this data over from the students registration.

                      • create an alternative Practice Log design appealing to children

                        I'm curious whether the practice log feature has been popular in studios amongst the young students. Because I find the display is fine for adult students but for children it wouldn't be appealing enough to begin using it or to continue to do so in the long term. It would be nice to have an alternative display that has bubbly graphics, maybe something with stars or like this for instance:

                        • Add a counter feature to count the number of months a student has been enrolled.

                          We offer rewards to our students based on the length of time they have been registered. It becomes difficult when students leave for months at a time and return. According to their enrollment date, on paper it looks like they've been enrolled for longer than they actually were.

                          • Have the student's teacher show up in the drop-down "people" menu.

                            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.

                            • Easily allow admins to be teachers

                              It would be nice to have a streamlined way to allow admins (me, a studio owner) to have one login for admin and teaching. Currently I have to have a different login and email. If it could be one login, and then we could switch the view upon entering the sight.

                              • CRM Capability (Ability to log and track client communications)

                                It would be fantastic to have a tab available under the student or family to accurately log calls, emails and communication.

                                Even a simple text box such as this would be sufficient.

                                • Male, Female... and that's it?

                                  When adding new people to the system, Studio Helper only gives two gender options, male and female, and it automatically defaults to male.

                                  Could Studio Helper please recognize that there are people who fall outside the gender binary? We have several in our studio, and it is not right for them to be forced to choose one or the other when neither or both could be correct.

                                  Please add some more options so that everyone could be represented. Better still, please add more options and also have the gender stop defaulting to male and have a blank space instead. That…

                                  • 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.

                                    • If there is a negative number in the Balance Due field, there should be an option to add that to credit

                                      If you remove a charge from a client's invoice after they pay, it will show a negative balance in the 'Balance Due' field. There should be a way to apply that remaining balance into their credit!
                                      With the current studiohelper set-up, if a student pays in advance for the month, and then cancels one of their lessons after paying, you must delete their and recreate their invoice, delete and recreate their payment, delete and recreate their credit. Please implement this modification, it would solve a huge problem for us!

                                      • 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.

                                        • 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.
