Just a few updates

Got a few minor updates done this week.

  • You can now attended date to automatically update when you increment hours for a rank level.
    • The logic being, if you're taking attendance (either before or after class), as you're updating the progress toward a students next rank, the last attended date should also be updated. You'll find this setting on the "My Account" tab, with the label "Set Last Attended Automatically:"
  • Manually set the last attended date, when changing it on the bulk update screen.
  • Fixed tab order, when adding students.
    • it no longer tabs to the image upload, it now tabs the fields as you would expect

What? Another new feature. Yup, dig it.


We're rockin' out the features.

OK, it's not a big feature, but I think it'll get used a lot. We've added a checkbox to the form where transactions get entered titled "This Payment Due Has Been Paid". Checking this box will enter 2 transactions, one for the amount due, and one for the same amount marked as paid.

Paul from White Rock Kenshin Kan asked for this, as he wanted to track all the transactions from his students, not just the amounts that are outstanding. Good idea!

Great promotional idea, and a win-win for the community

I pulled this quote:

"There will be a moon bounce, food, raffles, games, and demonstrations by leadership students from the Taekwondo academy. All money from sales of food, raffles, and contributions will be donated to The Valerie Fund.

At the end of the event, students will compete to do as many kicks as they can in one minute; they have been soliciting sponsors who are willing to contribute to the charity on a per-kick or flat basis. Students who are top contributors to the organizations will be able to earn prizes such as gift cards and video games.

All participants and attendants will receive a complimentary 30 days free of martial arts. Local businesses can contact office manager, Lauren Botnick, at 908-237-2826 to donate to or provide support to the event."

What a great idea for promoting your school and helping the community at the same time.
