COVID RELATED UPDATES

Email Password – First, in your email setup, we have masked email passwords so that they are no longer visible.

User Specific Emails – The added security from the above now allows all users to save their email passwords. Now, if you choose to send an email from your user email address, you will no longer be prompted to put in a password. You can save it one time from the email setup screen.

Email Screen Changes –  Throughout the year, we’ll be making changes to some pages to align things in the current layout with how they will work in the new user interface that we are working on. This update is the first step towards that goal. Click here for complete instructions. 

Recurring Billing Notifications – Declined payment emails will now be sent before receipts when posting recurring payments.

Student List Report – We have now added the option to include the student number with your student list reports.

 

Build 455 – Posted February 6th, 2019 by Brett

Texting for Canadian Customers – We’ve worked with our text messaging provider, and the service is finally available for Canadian customers.

Customer Access Settings – In this update, we’ve given the studio more control over online payments and made it easier for parents to update their credit card information.

Receipt Defaults – You asked, and we listened. We have had a lot of feedback that there is too much clicking required to print or email a customer a receipt. So we’ve given you some defaults that you can set to limit the clicking. Additionally, we’ve added some merge tags to the receipt email to allow you to personalize things a bit more for your customers. We’ll be adding these tags to the other email functions in the future.

Credit and Charge History from Class Info Screen – We’ve made some changes with posting charges and credits from the class information screen. Mostly, we have just relocated the function to collapsible sections at the bottom of the screen. Additionally, we have added a transaction history so that you can see all of the charges and credits posted from that screen. And, if you need to, delete a posting.
