  1. lessons taught report, please add multiple locations

    Hi,

    This would be extremely helpful to break down teaching locations on the totals at the bottom of the lessons taught report., since in our case teachers are paid different rates for example in studio, or in-home etc.....

  2. Only show available teachers on calendar.

    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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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

  7. 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!

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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

  12. 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.

  14. Online Payment options AUS studios!

    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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

    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.
