Trello is SUPER useful!! 

It would be well worth your while (if you haven't already) checking out integrations with Trello and Zapier. You can for instance have a sign up form on your website which a client fills out and then triggers an automated on-boarding process where they get invited to their own Trello board shared with you. When they log in there would be automatically populated cards detailing things like how to set up artwork correctly, factors to consider in print processes (eg, difference between DTG and screenprint and embroidery etc), template files for them to download, etc etc. Anything you might want a new client to have easy access to in one place. And it'll all be there without you doing anything at all. It's quite magical and does beg the question why Deconetwork would want to reinvent the wheel as we look at that type of functionality.

I am not in the Beta testing yet so I am not aware of exactly how 8.5 works and looks. But I do want to mention a feature to be considered that would help me manage my staff/Orders better.

Sometimes our staff will hold orders in their emails for a while and then post it in production too late and try to rush it out. When I complain to production why are we behind, they will blame on the sales staff who are seeking in jobs last minute. What I would like is an easy way to identify those orders. So to do that system would have to mark (alert icon) orders whose Order Date and shipping date is lets say less then 7 days.

Please let me know your thoughts on this..

Thanks

I saw the new designs that came out. Awesome step forward for Deco. Problem though - Not having the ability to change the Name, Category, and decoration process seems like a bit of an issue. I know countries outside the US call Soccer Football however in the US it is Soccer. I'd also like to make them available for screenprinting. We will be integrated this into our website further if these changes can be possible.

Thanks,
Hunter

Would it be possible to add a text box in the product set up - see attached screenshot

We have some product that we get from different suppliers or have to package specifically and putting notes with the actual product would be a great help.

Cheers Tony

Hi Greg,

I asked to be included in the Beta over two weeks ago. How long does it take?

The calendar is definitely a move in the right direction, but it is still unusable if we are unable to split up the orders to have different designs and decoration types to be produced on different days. I would imagine that you would be able to split up an order into multiple production dates by assigned production person, design, or by decoration type. If not then the calendar is not a functioning production calendar.

Also a good feature to add would be a suggested production run time that can be calculated by the customer entering a "number of pieces produced per hour" in the decoration type area of the admin. The program would read how many pieces are in the order on the line item and by utilizing the entered "number of pieces produced per hour" quotient, it would be able to calculate how long the job would take and block out that much of the day on the calendar. Another ideal situation would be to have different colors per machine so you can visually see what is running on each machine per day.

Hi Great feedback.

Being able to split orders would be a great addition, however I will at this point set your expectation correctly and that's a really big data change, this unfortunately cant happen anytime soon,.
Something we may be able to add in the shorter term is ability to assign to a machine.. and see each machine in the day view.

Hope you enjoy all the many other additions in 8.5.

Cheers,
Greg

Just applied first payment to a COMPANY account.

Everything is good, except it does not allow user to set payment date, like the Customer Record Payments module.

This is important since we, like many others do not always apply payment the day its received.

Hi Greg,

I'm comparing Record Payments in the HUB, which allows you to set the payment date with a calendar.

Whereas, with the new feature Companies does NOT use this interface for payments. Therefore, payments are made from the Company account (right menu - Make Payment.

Attached is the popup view. For companies, it would be typical to receive checks on a Net 30 basis. But no place to enter date.

Greg,
I'm not sure how long ago this setting was added for displaying the Low As price.      via FC settings  Products / Blank Product Display

But I noticed it and tried it. I do not use quantity breakdowns or volume discounts. Many decorators, like myself, let the decoration tables do this for us.
The Low As price displayed the same price, no change. I am assuming it is because it is coding only to fetch discounts and qty breakdowns.

This is an issue I know you have heard for years. I have always wanted it and as a DecoPro, clients tell me they want it.

Please submit to make this work for a combination of set blank price & decoration table.

Ok, this is definitely a new feature in 8.501. I checked a client site in 8.401 and they do not have it.

SO, my feedback for the new Price levels to display is make sure it includes a combination of set blank price & decoration tables
