  1. 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.

  2. 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).

  3. 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.

  4. create registration page instead of html custom widget

    It would be great to have standard regstration pages for private lessons, art classes, etc... right now i'm doing double entry for each new student.

    We’ll be working on a new registration and booking system that will make it easier for students to register for specific classes, or for you to do so with a much simpler interface. This is still a ways off, but we wanted to let you know we’re planning on it.

  5. 2 way sync between studio helper and google calandar and/or iPhone.

    This is important because I would like to make quick changes from my iphone when I'm not near a computer, and have my personal schedule update to studio helper so I don't get scheduled for lessons when I'm unavailable.

  6. Add the repertoire tracker to Studio Helper

    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.

  7. 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!

  8. 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…

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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!

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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!

  17. Daily Report

    If Studio Helper is an upgrade from Music teacher Helper, I am wondering why there are very important key elements missing from Studio Helper such as the daily report that is emailed each day showing you at a glance what the schedule looks like.

  18. 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.

  19. Emergency Contact Details

    Fields for Emergency Contact person (Name, Phone, Relationship to Student) would be nice. Having to add and find for these details in the notes section is not very efficient. Also, perhaps a field for Medical Concerns, Allergies, etc so that it would show up on a report or at least be easily accessible would be great.
