Student Portal

  • We fixed an issue that was causing deleted locations to show up in the Student Portal calendar’s search list

Student Management

  • We fixed an issue that caused the status of a student to change from adult to child when moving them to a new family
  • When adding a new student with an inactive status, TutorBird will no longer automatically provide information about auto-invoicing options
  • We fixed an issue that would occur when editing attendance from a student’s profile, where returning to the previous screen would return you to the tutor’s profile instead
  • We fixed an issue that was preventing some info from being passed along when an adult student signs up for lessons via a website sign-up form
