I'd love to see more ability to limit admin in the backend so employees are not privy to my financials etc.

Currently, limiting admin seems to go from SEE ALL THE THINGS or SEE NOTHING at all.


I'd love to have editors have access to galleries so they can upload their work to the right place, and later, print/pack people being able to download orders to print folders for me.

I've tried having them upload to "ALL PHOTOS" and then I move them later, but with multiple people and multiple galleries it gets pretty messy and I had to go back to me doing all the things myself.


To give gallery access at the moment means they see all my business and earnings/everything and I really cant have that.

Thankyou.

Leanne that is incorrect. EDIT your admins and this is what they will see.

Not incorrect Vance, and this has been moved from another thread where many agreed with me - im just putting it where it belongs.  I have edited my admins and they can see too much of my backend.  I would hate to see this fresh new admin-thread rubbished with back-n-forths - discussion belongs in the regular forum, but thanks anyway.

Would love to see a feature where we can sort in a gallery for someone's hearted favorites. I have a client that 'favorited" her images but I can't sort them. 

This feature doesn't seem to work. :(   I don't see a favorite setting in galleries.

You can sort customer's favorites when viewing their favorites from their account in the admin.

I use custom days a lot in the booking calendar, by extension I would love to see custom months option added that works with custom days.

For example, instead of just offering mondays and tuesdays (from custom days) I can now offer Mondays and Tuesdays April to Oct avoiding the winter months.

As an extension, and to deal with sunset varying between 4pm and 10pm here in the northern hemisphere adding the available time by month.

I currently deal with this by exclusion, I have to go into every single day and block out "sunset" times or "bad light" to make the times unavailable. This is a huge pain, often with errors and if I want to change something up, takes me hours and hours and impacts my other booking calendar services (including studio work).

Auto Create Invoices.

When people pay deposits, I often forget to invoice the rest of the session, which is a manual exercise (search through calendar, then find un-invoiced balances then create invoice).

In the booking calendar service, can we have an option to auto invoice the balance X many days before the session, with a Y many days payment due date?

Service price snippet.

On the booking calendar service, we have the snippet of code at the bottom that we can use to insert a book now button elsewhere on the website. I use it all the time and I think its great.

I would love a similar snippet of code to pull back the price of that service, so when it comes time to change prices around, it automatically updates all my informational pages rather than searching and potentially missing manually added entries.

I went to the link you posted - and it says "Topic Closed" - so I couldn't post there - here ok??

I would LOVE to see a few things added to the forms:
1. The ability to attach files (.jpg, .pdf specifically)
2. The ability for the form to calculate a payment and go straight to the payment gateway

3. The ability to use $ sign. When making my forms that have a dollar amount, you can't use the sign.

1) I would like to have inside a gallery in my admin area, a space where I can freely annotate text. like the notes which is on the admin home page.
often I would like to jot down details about that race

2) the STAT&SALES form within an event shows the total of shipments and gross receipts but there is no trace of the paypal, stripe, etc. commissions that have been paid and which are however reported in each individual order. it would be useful to have a net total and possibly also a box where we can add a cost for that event (e.g. sponsorship or contribution to the event)

3) in the admin tab you can add users with limited access but who see too much. I want to increase the number of internal photographers and do more sporting events on the same day, paying them a percentage of sales. it would be useful for each gallery / event to be associated with a user who can then check and send orders, without seeing my receipts.

I would love to see an option to add cost and expenses to a product or package and have this totaled in reports. It would save a lot of time being able to see how much I spent on lab costs and or expenses.

Wall Designer position lock:

Could you enhance the wall designer feature by letting us lock the size and position of saved collections for our customers?  

In other words, could we make pre-set wall designs for customers to pick from, and they can only choose the photos, not change the products?

It would be great to have the option to let other photographers upload their own photo's. Like contributors to a stock section for example. With or without being reviewed by an admin. Or customers upload for printing their own photos via my lab.

- further dissect what can be done and seen in the admin area of our collaborators

- on/off button to view the daily and monthly earnings in the admin home
- new layout templates and lightboxes for viewing photo galleries and enlargements
- make the X more visible or simplify the exit from the photo enlargement lightbox. now in a large desktop screen stay away from everything in the upper right corner.
- additional fields for entering the address if there is a printout in the cart, so as not to ask everyone who buys downloads for it
- the biggest limitation now in my opinion is not being able to easily move groups of photos from one gallery to another, from one subfolder to another. the current solutions are theoretical and not feasible if we are talking about thousands of photos. the all photo section is in fact useless.

starting from a gallery, being able to "associate" it with other galleries selected by me, which will then in some way be suggested to the customer who sees the starting gallery.

example. if you look at the 3rd race of a specific championship, I'll remind you and show you the link to also look at the photos of the 1st and 2nd race.
it's different from making a category for each championship like you can do now

I would love to be able to search or filter orders by the products ordered. That way, I can find everyone who ordered a specific product at one time instead of having to search through every order to find them.

You can sort by column for the product in the CSV export if you open it in a spreadsheet program.

Print orders:

Quite often our print orders are a mish-mash of print sizes and it's a bit of a chore to have to sort through them and mistakes are sometimes made, especially when the same file is ordered at different sies.

I'd like to be able to sort print orders by print size, so all the 6x4 are grouped together, all the 7x5 etc etc.  A bit like the old 'Work order' feature (I never figured out why that was removed).

A step further on from this to help processing orders even more, would be to arrange the file download from an order by size, so a folder structure something like:

Order 12345.zip
   Order 12345
       Print 6x4
             filename
             filename
       Print 7x5
             filename
             filename

Each folder would contain the filenames ordered for that size - and if the same file is ordered at different sizes then the file is repeated in the relevant subfolders.

I would love for the image number to appear UNDER the photo when you make the image bigger from thumbnails.   Clients are not always intuitive with computer stuff and they can never find the image number in the top left.   (I I know.. I know..)

I share ,

I had made the same request more than a year ago with the addition to yours of also removing the ".jpg" and removing the reference to the photo number with respect to the total number of the gallery, which only leads to confusion between the clients .
I really don't understand the choice of having the number in that top corner

I would love to also see the NEXT button with page 1, 2 on the galleries be more prominent.   I feel like clients don't realize there is a page two:

Product Base

There is a label system, but the labels need to be applied product by product. It would be nice to have that added to the bulk edit feature that is already available there.

It would also be great to have more options in sorting the display order on the main product base page. Even just a simple drag and drop like many other areas have.

Hi Tim

I know it has been asked before, but please consider adding a home delivery address entry modal box at step 2 when customers choose the home delivery radio button, akin to the testimonial text entry box.

I don't normally ask parents for any address details at all, as 90% of parents want free school collection.  I then have to chase up the address details of the home delivery customers.  

But I have one school that is insisting on all home delivery only.

A text address entry box that appears only when the home delivery radio button is selected would simplify this greatly.

Would this not just be a shipping option? Maybe I'm misunderstanding, but this is how I do it:

When there is an option of home or school, have the school drop off option set as "Group Delivery to School" with a price of 0 and check the option that removes the need for them to enter an address. For the home delivery option you would not check that box and they would then need to enter their address at checkout and pay for their shipping option if you have set a price. 

If it's only home delivery being offered, you would create a shipping group that doesn't offer that school delivery option.

A way to create an order from the admin side of things - for example, I have older clients that order prints and just can't seem to figure out how to do it online, so I give them a paper order and receipt. I like putting it into the website though as a way to track it, it would be great to be able to do that from the back end instead of from the client side of things.

Have you logged in as the client (from the admin) and completed the order that way? I've had to do that for a few clients who struggle with the technology.

In the OPEN ORDERS UNASSIGNED page, have the ability to select digital orders only. This would help tremendously since digital orders do not require printing of the order. This would save time of scrolling down and check marking digital orders to be archived especially when over 100 orders are placed. This would help out the volume photography business tremendously.
