I subscribed to Deco in late July this year as I see there is potential in the system and I was told that some missing features will be in future release. But I was disappointed that the latest release did not solve the most crucial issues for many printers, there isn't complete pricing structure for all the printing methods in this industry.
With the Area pricing added in V7, it is possible to have a temporary work-around solution for Vinyls but I did have enough process to replace for that many other Heat transfer material I use and the current solution cannot apply for special effect/colour type of Vinyls which cost more.
This is a big problem, pricing is the core of our business, if we can't work the math right....we can't sell. Deco should take "PRINT METHOD & PRICE STRUCTURE" as the No. 1 priority for updates next to security and bugs issues.
Instead of working on a Vinyl module and then a Laser Transfer module and then a Printable Vinyl module one by one. Deconetwork should work on an ALL-FOR-ONE SOLUTION - which is the flexibility to let us add any number of Printing Process on our own and let us choose which pricing structure to go with the print method we added. There are already, single print, area print, colour print etc pricing structure in the current solutions, thou still not perfect at the moment ( still missing of specific print size price calculation method and additional cost option for Vinyls colours that cost more ) but implementing a flexible "ADD NEW PRINT PROCESS" and "CHOOSE PRICE STRUCTURE TYPE" should not be that difficult? It will seriously resolve a lot of limitations now.
I have been wondering how many developers/programmers does the company have too.... a Vinyl feature took so long to be added??????
I hope someone can let us know how long we have to wait for the price structure to be complete!
Provide the ability to edit meta information, with page title being the most important, for decorated product category pages.
Please add Yelp as an option to when adding social sharing links.
So what can we do? Add Yelp! Oh and why not LinkedIn too?
When creating decorated items, we would like the capability to make items that are decorated with the same design related to each other without having to go in and relate the items to each other individually? It seems logical that we would be able to make this selection during the initial item creation stage. It would also be very helpful if there were a way to make relationships mutual. For example, if Item A is related to Item B then it would make sense that Item B should be related to Item A as well...possibly a check box?
We have 4 or 5 main stores that we operate that have unique niches, but some of the decorated products could be shared & available to 2 or 3 orther stores. We have 100's of decorated products.
For a decorated product that we want to use in multiple stores, current implentation requires us to create a decorated product from scratch in each store.
Provide the ability to designate that a decorated product is applicable to one to many stores. This could take the form of designating the decorated product for availability in multiple stores, providing the ability to import decorated products from other stores...anything that minimizes the clicks / time needed to make a decorated product available in multiple stores.
Our shop has 100's of products, 100's of decorated products and 100's of custom designs.
The current implemenation displays these products / designs in pages. If I want to move a product from page 10 to page 3, I have to either move it page by page 10 to 9 to 8, etc... or move to top page 1 and then move to 2, then to 3.
This is very time consuming, particularly when moving many products / designs.
Please improve the ability to sort and move products & designs within our shops. An interface that I think is simple and easy to re-organize is Netflix. I can easily move movies in my queue from 50 to 15 with one click.
Generally need improved ability to rearrange products / designs within store. This should be uniformly applied to all locations that provide sorting. I only listed to the two that are most commonly an issue.
I would like the team ad decontwork to add a color picker instead of the color slider....Dye-sublimation gives us the option of every color combination available. A color picker makes it simple for our customers to match they color they desire...The slider is a constant guessing game whereas acolor picker is an exact science for my customers...This is about my customers....Please vote on this so Deco-Network will move this to the top of their list..
With our frustration for the lack of Deco team members communication at the current forum, I like to think that is do to not wanting to share publicly (hoping this is the reason) their plans or whatever they are doing that they would like to have in a closed circuit, even if this is not the reason I still would like to have a private forum, I don't like much thinking of my potential competition watching and reading what I'm up to, if they are also members of Deco then I would feel that we're in a fair game.
So if you like the Idea please VOTE!

We are in the process of launching a website for Fraternities and Sororities and using some sort of Rewards Program is important to us. It would be beneficial for other retail sites as well, but this market responds to this type of program more than any other I've looked into.
Points would be earned by purchasing (an item priced at $19.99 would earn 20 points), referring friends (10 points when a friend signs up for an account) and on friends orders (get 10% back in points from referred friends orders).
I want to set up options for points to be redeemed for exclusive products, credit towards an order and as a "gift" to a friend.
There are a few places within Deco that it makes better sense for using radio buttons over dropdown lists.
The first place is when affiliates sign up for a new website and they have to choose a custom website template. Most affiliates don't even notice that the templates are in a drop-down list, and nearly every new affiliate starts with the default custom store template.
The second place where radio buttons make more sense over a drop down list is on the shipping page. It makes more sense for customer to be able to see all of the shipping methods at once and make a choice from there. Our customers can pick up their orders if they like but most do not because they didnt see that it was a shipping option.
Allow shop owners to create a bundle sale item eg 3 Polo shirts and 1 jacket for £80.00 The customer can then choose colours and sizes as well as add a logo in the designer etc.
I would like the option of adding all colours within each specific section when configuring a product. For example, when you create a custom product, on the left side of the tabbed section is colors. Within there, you're able to all all the colors you want, but at this time, you need to select them one by one.
You should be able to either add them all at the same time, or all the colors would have checkboxes next to them so when you select the ones you want, you can click a button that says "Add Selected" at which case, would add all the colors you specifically chosen...
The reasoning is because I constantly create custom products and am always needing to select the colours one by one which makes the whole process rather slow...
I think it would be nice if we could automaticaly pay out a percentage of each order a sales team member creates to their personally paypal. Say if I give my sales team a 15% commission based on the total or their order, that would be automatically help and paypal could mass pay them. I know there are work arounds for this, but not very good ones.
I think it would be very beneficial to have a section within the Product set up to add production notes/instructions. We're a small shop (Family of 4!), but even so, being able to add Time, Temperature and Pressure and format instructions for sublimation products would save time and improve accuracy.
Obviously these would only be seen on the Production Worksheet, not the customer's order. I don't want fields for Time, Temperature and Pressure, just a text area I can type in.
It would be really nice to be able to look at the global product list and recieve a table of which stores are using this product and at what price it is charging, etc. All we currently get is a number of how many stores the product is used on.
I was going through the Smart Select (in the Products) and would like to use it with the Default Catalog Price Markup (in the Settings) but I notice that the SanMar prices are already marked up from cost and some of the other catalogs are not marked up. When I created an 50% or 100% markup in the Default Catalog Price Markup the SanMar products was listing/charging way more than what I wanted and if I set the markup to 0% to correct this then the other catalogs was listed at my cost (below what I wanted to sell)
Is there a way that we can have an option for each supplier (catalog) to have different DC? Also maybe have an option for the Smart Select to be active/used in selected Stores and the Business Hub this way I can activate it and don't have to go through each store and make each product that I don't want to sell unavailable (unselected) in the products area of each store. This way I can use the Smart Select with multi catalogs (Suppliers) and use the Default Catalog Price Markup with different markup % value for each catalog (Suppliers) in the Business Hub and the stores with the correct pricing marked up.
I'd like to see the 50 decorated product limit removed when cloning a store. Alternatively, an export/import process for decorated products would be helpful.
I have run into a few different problems that could all be fixed by a simple feature. Relating to Gift Certificates, once one is setup, you cannot change it at all. On the CSV import, the Expiration date defaulted to March 2014 (in the past). I didn't think it would be expired already, I was thinking March 2015. Anyway, once imported I was screwed because:
1. I could not delete it, only inactivate it ( which means I can't use those codes again).
2. I could not change the expiration date (no edit feature).
3. I could not re-use that code and fix it (no duplicates even if inactive).
4. I cannot adjust the dollar amount based on an offline purchase.
All of this could easily be resolved if you simply had an edit option, that lets you change at least the open dollar value and the expiration date. I also think allowing deletions to be permanent would be better, but at least if you can't delete, if you can edit you can fix it to how you want it.
This ability is actually going to be critical to allow us to operate with vouchers for our customers. So I would "desperarately" request that you add a feature to edit existing gift certificates.
Would it not be great if we could have a seperate "Color Pallette", either embroidery or screenprinting, for each affiliate store?
Our only option for shipping integration right now is to export a CSV file. It would be great if there was API/XML access offered to make things more automatic.
Integration with GoShippo.com or Shipworks would be a start.
