  1. Webapp

⏳ - 48 hours is too long to wait to adjust a session.
We will be shortening the time between lesson completion and earnings adjustments to significantly less than 48 hours.

❗  - Continuing issues with logging feedback
We have identified a bug where duplicated sessions meant feedback logging was inconsistent. There are now no new duplicates and remaining ones are being phased out.

2. Payments

💰 - Payment is late/inconsistent
We’ve heard you: In November and December, 94% of payments were paid on time. Delays are due to our payment provider, high traffic of manual adjustments and international transfers.

⏰ - Payment adjustment form takes too much time
We’ve heard you: We are working on an ‘add session’ button into the webapp so tutors will no longer have to fill in the manual adjustment form and email it to the payments team.
There will also be a select few options to select when requestin a Webapp adjustment to help speed it up -> this is in the final stages of review.

3. Support and communication

💬 - Support is only available until 6pm.
We’ve heard you: You are able to exit the support number and go through another workflow to connect with customer care - who are online until 9pm. We will send a refresher on how to do this.

💁 - Tutors still need support after the mentor groups close
We’ve heard you: We will now be offering ongoing mentorship support for tutors that wish to remain with a mentor, even after their original group closes. For any existing tutors who do not have a mentor, please reach out to us via the support number.

4. PMs and Customer Success

☎ - Programme managers not adding tutors into WA groups quick enough
We’ve heard you: We have now led several trainings with programme managers to ensure this doesn’t happen. If it does, please come through to us directly on the support number.

🔍 - Confusion about the GoStudent team structure - who does what?
We’ve heard you: We are creating new explanatory resources to send out on the Updates group so you know who does what.

5. General

⚡ - Tutor Academy sessions to be made available - SOON!
- Being globally scaled with an event plan
- There is now a calendar that has been shared in Updates Whatsapp & Webapp page which can be found here!

➕ - More Tutor Team members
We are ramping up our Tutor Team so we have more tutor managers to support you!

😍 - New virtual Onboarding resources
We’ve created a series of videos (and a quiz) for tutors to reference for support on how to use the platform.
