Advanced Search Pages Renamed and Students Search Made Easier to Use

The Students Advanced Search page helps you find lots of important information, and having it all in one place can be a good thing. However, making it better over the years by adding more options, fields, and criteria has also given the page a little clutter issue. We simplified the layout and did a little “clutter-eliminating” housekeeping in hopes that we could make this important page easier for you to use and read. One additional change is that all dropdown menus’ Advanced Search options are renamed to simply “Search”.   The page title of each menu indicates the specific search: Search Students, Search Families, Search Classes, Search Staff, and Search Transactions. Our efforts are always focused on improving your Jackrabbit experience […]

Visibility of Fees Due or Not Due Improved

When you’re processing refunds, you’ll find that a few changes on the “Are Fees Still Due” page will help you. What was previously a checkbox is now radio buttons. Click the “R” beside any payment to begin the refund process. After you have selected which fee(s) to refund and clicked the “Next” button, the “Are Feeds Still Due” page now allows you to click the appropriate radio button for the fee status (see image). The entire page has also had a little revamp to remove outdated video links and justifying the text in a more readable format. These changes come together to make the items that need attention on this page more visible to you. Better clarity means that you […]

Skills Reports Provide Skills by Class

There are new Levels Reports that give you the skills information by class: all skills, skills attained or skill not attained are your report options. Find these at New Classes>Class Skills/Levels Report. Please note the information provided about each student in addition to the student name, specific skill and class such as birthdate, skill/subskills and attained date, age, contact phone and last agreement date.

Collect Your Full Fee Amounts in Credit Card Processing Using Ignore Pre-payment Setting

Have you been held up on processing tuition fees because of some sort of pre-payment – like a costume deposit – in the past? Jackrabbit tries to prevent over-charging instances by limiting processing for any amount greater than the family balance. That doesn’t have to happen anymore! Now you can ignore pre-payments when processing credit cards for specific transactions. Here are the parameters: You must pre-check that your payments are linked correctly. The user has to enter a Transaction Date to limit the risk. Jackrabbit highlights accounts where the Amount to Process is greater than the Family Balance to alert the user.
