The TutorBird team has spent the first month of 2020 working on improvements to help make things clear. That is to say… we’ve got 20/20 vision! We’ve tweaked some language and fixed some formatting to help you and your families better understand what you’re seeing. Here’s our list of updates:

Improvements and enhancements: 

  • Events on the calendar now display with a strikeout if the tutor is absent. Events where the students were absent already did this.
  • The language used to the describe the various billing modes has been adjusted to make it more clear what each option does.
  • Updated the wording of “Send SMS Invoice notifications and reminders” for clarity.
  • Toggling a student from Adult to Child (or vice versa) now automatically updates the “View Student Portal As” buttons so only see the appropriate options are visible.
  • Updated the new Sign-Up widget so that the “Click Here” link is hidden if there is no related document on the Policy Agreement.
  • The Lessons Taught/Hours Taught report has been updated so that the columns align correctly when downloading as a CSV.

Our other fixes: 

  • Fixed the new Student Portal so that students cannot join multiple make-up lessons at once (only one at a time).
  • We’ve fixed a mistake in the error message that was displayed if you chose a password that was too short.
  • The in-app notification when a student registers for a lesson or event now uses the business’ regional date/time format.
  • Added regional date formatting to the Birthday field in the new Student Portal.
  • The “Edit Family” button from the Account Details page now goes to the first Active student in the family. If the family has no active students, then the first inactive student will be selected.
