What is Music Monitor?
WHAT DOES IT DO?
IS IT EASY TO USE?
Yes! Music Monitor is easily navigated and the on-screen ‘Help’ buttons provide instant answers and explanations.
WHAT ABOUT UPGRADES?
Annual license holders receive a free assisted Music Monitor upgrade every year completed by us.
DOES IT REQUIRE ANY SOFTWARE TO RUN?
Music Monitor requires Filemaker Server & Filemaker Pro software to be installed on each computer. All software is included in the purchase price. Releases of new Claris software are made available.
WILL IT INTERFACE WITH OUR SCHOOL DATABASE?
Most Music Monitor users import students’ personal details from a spreadsheet generated by their school database. This is then updated as required. Data from Music Monitor can be sent back to the school database via Excel spreadsheets, tab-separated or comma-separated text files, and a range of other options. It is usually possible to create a direct link between the school system and Music Monitor, so that every time Music Monitor is opened, the student details are automatically updated.
WHERE IS OUR DATA STORED?
WHAT ABOUT MOBILE DEVICES?
The FileMaker Go app can be downloaded on iPads and iPhones for free allowing teachers to log in and mark ensemble rolls, class rolls, and lesson attendance on the iPad-friendly roll-marking screens. Login accounts with limited access privileges can be created for your teachers to use the system in this way.
OUR NEEDS ARE FAIRLY UNIQUE. IS IT CUSTOMISABLE?
Most of the improvements made to Music Monitor over the last twenty years have been in direct response to requests by schools. Discuss your needs with the developer and it may be possible to incorporate your preferences. For more information on customisations, you can view our Customisation Package Options.
