HeadMaster Desktop Enhancements
We added two security profile options to HeadMaster Pro and HeadMaster Plus, so non-administrative users can post grades and skills. The new security profile options are located in User Administration.
On the General tab in the Parents, Students, or Teachers sections, administrative users can change the HeadMaster Online user name. You can click Get Random to assign a random user name generated by the program.
On the General tab in the Students section, we added a Print ID Card button. This option is convenient when printing replacement cards or when a new student transfers in. Depending on the type of printer you have, you can select to print for either a label format or a plastic badge format.
We added an Amount Due column to the Families grid. The Amount Due column displays the amount remaining to be paid for all invoices.
The Amount Due column:
- Excludes unapplied credits
- Displays a $0 amount for parents that have unapplied credits from overpayments or dedicated payments
Also, unapplied credits will still display on the Billing Inquiry and Statements reports as unapplied payments.
When you click the Show Map icon on the toolbar in either the Students or Prospective Students section, Google Maps™ mapping service displays the address location.
