It would be nice for the Marketing Email Function to have more specific control. We have been trying to use it toward letting customers know of a product being out of stock or a size being out. It would be great to have options like mail everyone who has placed an order between dates, or a based on a item in the store, etc.
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?
I’m a screen printer that sees the perks of DecoNetwork, but quickly realize it is not screen print friendly.
I’m in the process of setting up stores with many groups/organizations, but the Store Design limitations are making it very difficult for me. I plan on offering many Store Design options for each site, but currently they are all one color designs. Not because my shop is limited, but rather DecoNetwork is limited on charging the customer for the number of colors in a design correctly. In the design view it knows it is a two color design, as it can separate the colors and give the customers the option to change each color in the design, but does not give me the option to charge the customer for each color in that design they are selecting, unless they the customer tells DecoNetwork it is a two, three, four ect. color design as they are placing it on the garment.
Next problem DecoNetwork presents the Screen Print shop is not being able to lock size of the design. As a Screen Print Shop I can easily create a screen in anticipation of selling multiple, but it is not cost effective to create new films/screens every time a customer changes the size of the design.
My humble suggestion is in the “Store Design” -> “Add Design” - section you give the store owner the option to set the unique cost of each design is a you’re loading it. There are some designs I have to pay a royalty on, and others that I do not, it would be nice to be able to just set a fixed price for each specific design. I could easily set the price for multi color higher than single colors as I’m loading them. You could also lock the size of the design in the field as well. This would be a good place to also give the store owner the option to set color options for each logo. As a screen printer I do have the ability to mix custom inks, but it is not cheap/easy enough to mix custom inks for one shirt.
I would like the ability to change the decoration sizing per product sizing. Example we sell a specific product that comes in vastly different sizes and instead of creating a product for each size we would like to just adjust the decoration sizing.
Front print location for sizing "A" 16 x 24
Front print location for sizing "B" 24 x 36
Front print location for sizing "C" 36 x 54
I have 5 "my design" pages when I upload a design to a product, What a pain to flip thru to the last page to find a file I just uploaded. or select the wrong one.. I would like to be able to delete the old images that I don't use or slightly changed and maybe organize them... This should be a simple feature added to my design stock page... What does the deco family think?
We have been debating the idea of using custom fields to give our customers more options for their products. One of the main issues we are looking at is dealing with adding names and numbers. This works perfectly with custom fields since not only do they not have to be required like normal text but they also will show up at the checkout level in the cart so customers can see all the way through that they are getting what they typed in. The issue being we woudln't be able to charge them extra for doing so.
It could also be useful for other features like do you want gift wrapping +X dollars with checkbox fields and such other great ways to build on custom fields
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.
We are a direct to garment printer and our inks are absorbed into the shirt which causes the design to look different depending on the shirt color. It would be fantastic if there was anyway to simulate the "Multiply" layer style in photoshop whenever a design is uploaded or made into a decorated product. This would help us give a more accurate representation of what the product the customer orders would look like. As of now we just use the saturation filter and darken the design to look kind of like it but it is not accurate as you change the shirt color.
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..
I noticed that when I print production sheet for customers with terms, it shows balance due on the top in a big square box. production sheet goes to my printer who does not need to know how much I am charging for a job I should have an option to hide that from displaying. This is an easy fix and should be considered in the next release
My customers would like to be able to edit and upload new artwork to a quote that I designed or has a placeholder image and needs the final artwork for there order. Please vote...
You should have the option to combine different items for a quantity discount as long as they have the same design. If a customer orders 24 navy tees and 24 long sleeve navy tees we should be able to choose if we want to price that as 48 pieces or leave it at 2 x24 pieces.
The "Date" options in the Custom Fields only go back as far as 2004 and in the future to 2024 or something ridiculous. This needs to extend much further into the past, I'm uploading Christmas ornaments and I need people to choose the year they were born, married, etc. and for quite a bit of the population, pre-2004 was important ;)
I think we need more control over the widgets and product catgories. For example with my old shopping cart platform, when we created new products they would automatically be displayed using the "Latest" product widget and again best sellers were automatically populated under the "Best Sellers" widget.
Currently we have one widget which only displays products from the selected category there isnt even an option for displaying producsts under sub categories!! We can't even duplicate this widget as a work around.
I would like to see more widgets avaliable and the ability to add products into more then one category.
Not sure if this counts as a "feature" exactly but how about a 24/7 custom support system via phone or live chat? I know there used to be a tab for that but there was never anyone on the other end, it was always leave a message. I almost rather see something like this work than see a brand new awesome feature. Sometimes waiting 24 hours is too long to get some immediate support.
I would like the ability to remove all the Deconetwork logos, even in the back end of my affiliates. My customers (who do not own printing equipment) do not need to know who we use for our platform. It doesn't benifit deconetwork to advertise to my customers who do not have the means to use the deco platform without printing equipment.
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 really do need the option to do BATCH uploads of our own Store Designs just like we can with Stock designs. At the moment the only option is to upload them one by one or import into stock first which means all stores have access to them.
At the very least if batch uploads have been done in Stock and then 'copied' to Store they should actually be copied rather than linked so that they can be either deleted or disabled from stock if you don't want all stores to have access to those particular designs.
As is stands the files remain linked so if you decide to delete them from Stock they also get deleted from Store.
