Billing: New Billing Dashboard!

Schools with our Billing Module now have a Billing Dashboard located within the ‘Billing’ tab. This new page presents a comprehensive overview of a school’s billing data, making it easy for you to track and monitor your overall billing health at a glance!

Important Notes:

  • Location: Billing > Billing Dashboard

  • Sections: The report is divided into two sections:

    • Historical Percentage of Overdue: A graph displaying your school’s overdue percentage by month.

    • Charged vs Collected: A bar graph that displays your school’s total amount charged versus what was collected by month. Under the chart, there are 2 pie charts that display the following:

      • Payment Success (Successful vs Failed)

      • Payment Type

Admins Can Now Create & Edit Fields!

Admins and System Admins with Data permissions can now create new fields and edit existing ones on their own within Settings > Fields & Data > Fields.

Who can access this feature?

  • Admin Account Types: System Admin & Admin

  • Permissions: Data

Special Note for Diocesan and Multi-site schools:

  • Some fields are standardized across your group's sites for reporting (ie ethnicity, gender, etc). Check with your administrators prior to making a change.

Additional Notes:

  • Contract Fee Rules, Checklist Item Rules, and Payment Plan Rules: Fields associated with these can not be edited. You will see a warning message letting you know and asking you to reach out to support if you'd like to adjust the field.

  • Forms and Exports: Fields that live on forms and exports can be edited. A warning message will appear as a reminder to use care while making edits to these fields. If you're unsure, reach out to our Support team.
