Do you remember? The second update of September? 🎵

This week’s update focuses on tweaks to make your growing student list easier to manage, view all the info you need at a glance, and communicate with ease! But that’s not all… we’ve made tweaks & improvements to the new version of TutorBird all across the board. Check out our list of updates below:

Student Management

  • The Next Lesson & Last Lesson columns are now sortable in the student list
  • We’ve added groups as an option when searching on the Students page
  • We fixed an issue where information entered in the optional School field of the new student sign-up form wasn’t displaying in the new student submission notification
  • “Send Student Login Email” is now visible in the Messaging options when an adult student is selected
  • We fixed an issue where Family Contacts weren’t displaying in the student’s profile (but they were displaying in the column in the student list)
  • We’ve updated the Message History so emails scheduled to be sent on the current day are visible (regardless of their scheduled sent time)

Calendar & Attendance

  • We’ve introduced a new dialog under a student’s Attendance & Notes tab that details the lesson notes & linked online resources for a specific attendance record, and displays a Show/Hide option for files when they are viewable within the dialog (i.e. images, videos, etc.)
  • We updated the overdue attendance page so you can record notes while taking overdue attendance
  • We fixed an issue with the Attendance & Notes tab in a student’s profile, where only events with unrecorded attendance were displaying

Families & Invoices

  • We fixed an issue with the Student field when adding a new transaction where the first option in the dropdown was blank (it now says “Not Specified”)
  • We updated the email & SMS placeholder to “Invoice Amount Due” instead of “Invoice Amount”
  • We’ve added a banner to the Families & Invoices page to let you know when auto-invoicing is pending
  • We updated the banner about invoices being sent so it displays within the Invoices tab rather than across the top of the page, and only displays for the correct Family Accounts


  • The browser tab now displays what page you’re currently on (i.e. “TutorBird – Calendar”)
  • We’ve added a small in-app notification that pops up on the mobile/tablet view when printing something (previously the printable version would try to open in a new tab and could be prevented by a pop-up blocker)
  • Tutor Spaces in Online Resources are now in alphabetical order
  • We’ve updated the Lessons Taught report to include an option to group by student
  • We updated the Notes field when creating a report so it’s now a single line of text and is shown in the table on the main Business Reports page
  • The Expenses & Other Revenue chart automatically refreshes when an entry is added or deleted so the chart always displays accurate data
  • We fixed an issue where the Balance Remaining in a tutor’s payroll tab was displaying the wrong amount (it was correctly calculated in other areas)
  • We’ve hidden the option for students to email tutors from the Study Log if that tutor doesn’t have the permission set to view student email addresses
  • Various grammar & capitalization updates throughout
