Speeding up the General info;
Last Names:
please add an option to have the English and Hebrew last names chosen from a dropdown that is stored in the database.(like fundraising when creating an account I.e. If I wanna enter lefkowitz and I start to type Le we should get all names starting with LE, same by Hebrew)
Address:
Getting the address from the white pages
Even we can get all those info from parents it will definitely speed up the registration

Currently we are keeping this option in fundraising only. The data is always more accurate when entered exactly the way its given. By fundraising because you dont have that info available from the donors we had to automate. But in tuition its better to enter it and have it exactly the way he spells his name.

Also if its extremely important for you, you can always create the account in fundraising and click on the open in tuition link.

We do have the exact spelling from them (by phone or written on the application) but its much easier and convenience to get it  automated, and just verify with them by phone  or look into the written application.

Also i don't see the autofill option in fundraising after creating the account for the Hebrew , English and maiden name

When i create an account in fundraising i can click open in tuition, but i can't pull up the account by searching in tuition, even after i entered charges and payments on the account, i still have always to login to fundraising first,

(could be its a good thing that the fundraising accounts is not mixed up with the parent list, but the "open in tuition" is not the solution)

By Search tab in tuition you can find any account. The drop down in tuition only includes parents. It further filtered by the options menu. So it might only show current parent if you set that filter.

In fundraising all accounts are in the dropdown,

So if he open the account in fundraising and clicks on open in tuition and adds children and periods it will show up there too.
