Leap Into New Updates!

Leap Into New Updates!

Today may be a leap day, but we’ve taken our time to bring you some exciting new updates, including some upgrades to our brand new Website Builder! Check out our new updates for this month:

Calendar & Attendance

  • When looking at the calendar in day view, the calendar will remember from your previous login whether you organized by tutor or location
  • In the case of an event cancellation, the email notification now includes the name of the tutor who cancelled the event
  • We fixed an issue that would prevent a warning message to appear when changing attendees on a recurring event, if the event had no tutors assigned
  • We fixed an issue where upon refreshing the browser a filter applied to the calendar would remain but the filter menu wouldn’t display correctly
  • We fixed an issue that affected how events were shown after certain filters were applied

Families & Invoices

  • We added a confirmation message when attempting to disable auto-invoicing for a family
  • We fixed an issue that could cause invoices to take longer to process than usual
  • We fixed an issue that may have prevented multiple payments from being added consecutively to the same family account

Tutors & Staff

  • While in a tutor’s profile page, using the drop-down option to switch to a different tutor’s profile will now always default back to the start of the student list
  • We improved the way we notify non-admin tutors that they don’t have permission to save email templates
  • We fixed an issue that would prevent search bar on the payroll page to filter by the source column correctly

Student Management

  • When editing family details, you can now click on a student’s name in the “multiple students” banner to visit their profile (appears if a family has multiple students)
  • If a student registers for lessons using the online registration form, they can now manually enter a subject if there are no other options available

  • When you send a password reset email you are now notified right away if the email has been sent successfully
  • When a student cancels their lesson, the in-app notification now shows the cancellation feedback (the reason why the lesson was cancelled)

Website Builder

  • Social media links can now be added to either the header or the footer or both, as desired
  • We fixed an issue that prevented the ability to change the color of text after it becomes a hyperlink
