This video shows how simple it is to create/modify a teacher's daily/ weekly schedule.
How easy it is to add/edit a Teacher/ Lesson time slot on the Scheduling program? Lesson times are not added one at a time, they are added in blocks of time for each specific teacher in on a specifc day. Time slots are broken down to 15, 30, 45 and 60 minutes and are dynamically created and changed as needed.
We allow our new students to register online, and our existing students are allowed to view and edit information such as billing and contact information right from their computer or smartphone. An automated email is sent to both the teacher and the student when a schedule change is made, reducing the risk of confusion, saving us time and frustration if someone forgets what was said on a phone call or in person.
Using MINDBODY Online to enter a new Music Student
Once you have added a student to the schedule and they come in for their lesson we do what is called a "check out" proceedure. This is done by hovering over the student on the schedule and clicking the “check out” button. This automatically applies payment to the teacher and subtracts the balance on the student's account. You instantly know if someone is missing a payment as the check out procedure acts as your "gatekeeper" with a window that pops up letting you know monies are owed or information is missing. Since managers share the desk, each person working is auto-prompted, so nothing is missed between staffing with written notes or reminders. The system can helps us run a very tight ship and make sure everyone is paid or about to pay!

This is a HUGE benefit and MINDBODY is one of the few software companies in their class that has this extensive network of add on features and partners! You will learn that MINDBODY becomes your central data base and it can automatically share information, with specific 3rd party applications that tie in via an Application Progam Integration Data Base link. This sounds complicated and it use to be, but MINDBODY has made this a snap to add!
Included with every MINDBOY account, you receive a free 500 e-mail Constant Contact subscription.
We also use Perkville Rewards and have created our own customized rewards program where students earn points toward free things that we specify (Moms love this! Think Starbucks rewards).
Every time a student takes a lesson we give them 10 points. When they refer a student they get 50 points, when they give us love on social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) they get 10 or 20 points. When they reach 250 points they can redeem credit toward a free extra lesson, recital or festival fee. Perkville keeps track of all this and just gives you daily reports so once it's set up, it runs itself!
Listen 360 - A great way to get real time feedback and reviews from all our clients. Once this is set up, it happens automatically for as often as you set the parameters.
Live Edit- This is our website integration partner (click here to learn more)
Envision This: Someone requests info or registers for lessons on our Live Edit Website, their info flows directly into MINDBODY, and from there it automatically flows out to Constant Contact, Perkville, and Listen 360. If we make a change, say an update to an e-mail in MINDBODY, that change automatically gets made on all the other sites! This is the future!!
These API partners have helped turn our MINDBODY system into a marketing and communications machine that helps us leap frog our competition hands down!
MINDBODY software has successfully been implemented in our three music schools, serving over 800 students taking private and group lessons. With minor tweaking and adjustments, the software can be applied to virtually any music school/academy/retail business as primary software to run the entire business!
