Better Studio Email


Hi Everyone,

Here’s a list of what’s new this week:

  • HTML Email – Now you can format the emails you send to your students from My Music Staff. You can bold, center, underline, change fonts, and more!
  • Email from Practice Log – Students can now email you directly from the practice log if you enable this feature. To turn this on go to your “My Preferences” page and turn ON “Allow students to email me from the Practice Log”. By default this feature is turned off.
  • Email History – The email history now shows both “From” and “To” addresses in the email summary. If student’s email you from the practice log, it will be saved in the email history.
  • Practice Log Order – The practice log now displays the most recent entries at the top by default.
  • Attendance Status Display – We’ve removed the billable symbol “($)” when viewing the attendance history for a student (in both the student and teacher portal). This makes the attendance history a bit more elegant. You’ll still see the symbol as a quick reminder when you’re taking attendance.
  • Student Portal Log – My Music Staff now keeps track of student portal logins. You can now see when a student logged into My Music Staff by turning on the “Last Login” field on the Student List page.
  • Shortcut – We’ve added a shortcut from the Student Details page so that you can jump from the “Family” tab to the Family Account page.
  • Smarter Back Button – Now when you use the My Music Staff “Back” button (that occasionally appears at the top of the page), it will more intelligently take you to the previous page.
  • Mobile Layouts – We’re improving the layout of My Music Staff on mobile devices. Some buttons now display their icon only to save space. We’ve also improved the way pop-ups work on iPhones so that the OK/Cancel buttons don’t bring up the Safari toolbar anymore.
  • More Consistency – When you click the “Save” button on the Student Profile, it now saves both the student and parent contact information at the same time, regardless of which tab you’re on.

Have a great week!

    I appreciate how My Music Staff is constantly working to grow & improve the site, even after we’ve already bought in! They are certainly demonstrating that they DO INDEED intend to be the BEST service provider for its teachers. I HIGHLY recommend this service to any lookie-loos. I’m tech retarded & even got the extra help I needed from Customer Service to walk me through. Thanks, “staff”! You’re incredible!

    Wonderful stuff! Does the student portal log only keep track of student log-ins, or parents also? Thanks for a fabulous, continuously improving product!

      Hi Annalise! Yes the log keeps track of both parents and students. The “Last Login” field shows the most recent login by either a parent or student.
