Email Latest Receipt

This feature works just like “Email Latest Statement”. A pop-up window will appear to confirm the action. You can also specify the sender information, as well as add an optional message:

Add Optional Message when Emailing Receipt

An email will be sent to the student or the parent depending on whether you have Student or Family Billing enabled.

Multi User Zoom Account

We’ve introduced a new setting when configuring the Zoom Integration App:

New option for paid Zoom Accounts when integrating with QuickSchools

This feature allows you to set up a single Zoom account to connect with QuickSchools. A more thorough description has been posted here.
