In 2013 we released many new features and updates for you. We want to thank you for your support and great suggestions throughout the year.
Below are a few features and updates now available or expected to be available in the upcoming weeks.
Website Blog: We are in the testing phase of the new Blog feature, and plan to release the feature soon. When the feature is released, we will send you an email, informing you of the release of this feature requested by many of you.
Simplified Invoicing System: Our programmers continue to enhance and simplify our invoicing system.
iOS Update: The latest Ios app release 1.5.7 is now available for download at the Apple Store. You will need to delete the older version before downloading the new release.
Some of the new iOS additions include:
Income and earnings report
About tab that now easily identifies the version of the app and basic information
We are excited to announce two student management features, Batch Processing and Student Summary. Many of you have requested these two features, and we heard your requests, and acted on providing these features for you. Both features are available to you in your student management page of your website. Go to STUDENTS > MANAGE STUDENTS.
Batch Processing: You will notice checkboxes next to your students in the Active, Waiting and Former Student sections. You can check the boxes next to the students to move more than one student from one section to another section. For example, If you need to move four students from the Active section to the Former Student section, check the box next to each student, and select the task from the dropdown window above the student list.
Student Summary: You can view all of a student’s information in their profile. On the Manage Students page, you now have a View option next to each student. By clicking on View, the student’s profile will appear. There are now eight tabs above the student profile: Basic Info, Invoices, Payments, Lessons, Upcoming Schedule, Lent Items, Makeup Lessons, and Repertoire. Clicking on any of the six tabs will show the selected information for the student.
Every week we post new features and fixes on our Facebook and Twitter page. We also post features and fixes weekly on our blog, as we are aware that many of you do not use social media accounts. You can also read current blog posts and new weekly updates at the bottom of your MTH home page after you log-in.
