An Even Better Beta!


A couple of weeks ago we launched our new attendance experience in beta! The feedback has been incredible, and we’ve already started to make improvements to the feature. Check out our updates to attendance – and more – below!

Beta attendance updates:

  • We added the option to email group lesson notes to parents and students.
  • We updated the Overdue Attendance UI to include checkboxes for taking bulk attendance.
  • We updated the language in the repertoire section for clarity.
  • In the Communication History section, we changed “Note to Teacher” to “Private Note” for consistency and clarity
  • We fixed an issue where cancelled lessons were not being converted to a make-up slot if that’s what was set in the studio’s policies.
  • We fixed an issue where special characters were not appearing in the lesson notes when inserted.
  • We fixed an issue where the attendance that could cause the attendance page to crash if the repertoire was missing the “Date Started.”
  • We fixed an issue where group notes were not displaying in the emailed lesson notes.
  • We fixed an issue where group notes were not copying forward from the previous lesson.

Other upgrades & enhancements:

  • The classic Student Portal is now officially retired! Any MMS accounts that were still using the classic Portal have been switched over to the modern Portal.
  • In the Student Portal, we’ve added a notification warning the user if they’re using an unsupported browser.
  • We’ve resolved the Student Portal scrolling issue on iPads that was affected by the new iOS update. This was previously fixed for iPhones.
  • When entering bank account details, white space at the beginning and end, as well as non-numeric characters, will automatically be removed.

Our other fixes:

  • We fixed a bug in the Student Retention report, where it was including students that are inactive and have never been in a lesson.
  • We fixed an issue in the text editor that could remove a line of text on iOS when double-clicking, or remove a line of text when hitting “Enter” after using the replace function.
  • We fixed a bug that occurred when applying a date filter that has a date range greater than an invoice created in the future.
  • We fixed an issue that occurred when trying to create Repertoire Reports in the Student Portal on mobile. Even when selected, a message would pop up indicating that there was no repertoire selected.
