  1. Boost Enrollments with Class-Specific Promo Codes

    Whether you run seasonal catalogs or hold year-round classes, fall can be an important time of year! And we love doing everything we can to help attract registrations for your program. Here’s a quick tip to fill some extra seats with one of our newest features: class-specific promo codes.

    Do you have a class that’s in danger of being cancelled or one with a lot of available seats? Try posting a limited-time promo code for the class to your email list or on your page on Facebook.  Combined with CourseStorm’s automatic low enrollment emails, class-specific promo codes are one more way to reduce the chance you’ll have to cancel.

  2. New Feature: Partial Refunds

    We hope you’re all enjoying the new start of the school year.  As a little “back to school” present from us, we wanted to let you know that partial refunds have come to CourseStorm.

    Not only can you now issue partial refunds for your registrations, but this update also includes a few other refinements to the refund process.  To start, you can now cancel a registration without refunding if you like.  You can also issue refunds outside of a cancelation — for example, if the registrant forgot to add a promo code during checkout.

  4. Managing Class Sessions Is Now Even Easier

    We’re really excited to announce the launch of a pair of new features made especially for programs that run multiple sessions of the same class. They’re two of the most-requested features from users of CourseStorm: the ability to duplicate a class and to have multiple sessions for the same class. Both of these features are available starting today.Read more

  5. Our Focus on Accessibility

    Our goal at CourseStorm is to create an impossibly simple way for everyone to register for classes online. From birthing classes to retirement planning, from Washington to Texas to Maine, from summer camps to corporate training, we’re thrilled to give such a diverse range of people access to education at their fingertips.

    Over the past few months we’ve been putting a special emphasis on making online registration easier to use for individuals with disabilities. We’ve heard from a growing number of programs that accessibility is an important focus for them, and we couldn’t agree more. That’s why we’ve been working hard to make some changes to increase usability for those with accessibility needs.

  6. Feature Announcement: Family Tax Information For Parents And Organizations

    One desirable aspect of after-school child care and sports programs is that the fees are often tax deductible. However, gathering all of the necessary information come tax time can be a hassle for parents and organizations alike. Program directors are flooded with calls at the beginning of the year from parents that need tax ID numbers, receipts, and amounts paid for each child so that they can claim the Child and Dependent Care Credit (CDCC) on their tax returns.

    To make tax time easier for everyone, we are excited to announce a new feature that allows parents to retrieve the program’s tax information right from the registration system!
