  1. Phone Numbers - Need Options for Auto-Formatting

    There need to be options for the auto-formatting of phone numbers when they are entered. Options are needed for both "(000) 000-0000" or "000-00-0000".

    The version with the parenthesis creates problems when being exported in CSV format.

    • Link client to each other.

      We have a lot of clients who come over for a session, and a year later we have their family over.
      It would be very nice to be able to link different clients to each other so that we know/remember that they are family of other clients.

      • Create an alert or warning if booking date/time selection for session/appointment is in the past

        I understand that sometimes there's a need to retroactively create sessions for a past date especially for On-location shoots etc. However, it would be really helpful if an alert or warning is shown so that if it's done on accident, then it's highlighted for the user

        • Be able to batch enter delivered dates for invoices.

          You can batch change an invoice status and it would be nice to go a step further and fill in the delivered date. Right now, I have to individually open each invoice and fill in the delivered date. So on a big school job, that could be 50+ invoices. We pay taxes on orders delivered, so the date is very important. Unless there is a way I don't know about.

          • allow client triggers to access family members birthdays to send greetings and specials

            We want to be able to set up triggers for family members based on birthdays to automatically send text or email greetings to the family members. Currently we can only use the main client birthday.

            • Selecting timeslot in calendar view to create new appointment/session

              This is more of a bug than a feature request, but in calendar mode when you click and drag to highlight a block of time and then select New Appointment or Service (Ctrl+P) to bring up the scheduling wizard, the highlighted time is not what is shown as the Start and End time for the appointment/session. It actually defaults to 9am to start time for appointments regardless of what time I highlighted on the calendar.

              Moreover, there is no Data Entry validation options for appointment/session start and end times.

              So, I had an error in my booking today because I…

              • Allow inventory for Color Options

                I like the new inventory idea and that great for fixed products like "USB"

                Its not so great for say 6x8 frame with 3 color options, here I don't need to know that I have 150 6x8 frames I need to know I have say 40 pewter, 10 black and 100 brown. one frame might outsell the others color wise. of course if there is a way to do this let me know but I have not been able to see it?

                  • Please!!! Make a Mac desktop app!

                    The web app is just not as powerful and a quite glitchey... having a desktop app for Mac would be ideal.

                      It would very professional to have an online booking in our own language (Dutch in my case).
                      I would be happy to translate everything in Dutch.

                        • Client file upload feature

                          We specialize in in-house production of large prints and framing and we have cases (such as for image restoration or printing) where the customer wants to send us an image.

                          It would be nice to have a way for either a new or existing customer to be able to upload a file into Stratus drive and it would create a new session record in stratus/spectra.

                          It would also be great if it could be integrated via webforms and/or email letter builder.

                          • Allow to bulk update session records, via csv at the least. This would allow something like, say, updating yearbook poses as a batch.

                            It doesn't even need to be a gui, it can just be a wizard like the client updater. It would just be really helpful to be able to use say a .csv to batch update session records rather than doing so one by one.

                                With Clients on Payment Plans, an email has to go to the Clients whose credit cards would expire soon so they can contact us to update the new credit card information. Often we come to know that a Client's credit card has expired only after the transaction has declined on the due date. Only then we start following up with the Client to update the new payment details.

                                It would be helpful to trigger an email or sms text to the Client before two weeks from the payment due date advicing they need to update their new credit card details…

                                • Inventory for raw materials (Framing sticks, canvas rolls etc.) based on dimensions of print

                                  I'm glad to see inventory feature added to spectra/stratus. However, it's assuming that inventory is only countable finished items. However, we have raw materials that we use to make finished products like rolls of canvas, sticks of frame moulding etc.

                                  I would like to see an improvement in inventory whereby dimensions of prints selected by the customer is used to calculate area of canvas, length of frame moulding etc. and subtract it from inventory. This should also be used for calculating pricing based on $/sq.inch for canvas, $/inch for frame moulding etc. so that it doesn't have to be done…

                                  • Enable security for selective reporting

                                    It would be helpful if there was an ability for users to view reports selected by management (while restricting all others) in order to submit their sales figures for commission payments instead of the existing administrative burden of having to monitor their sales which leads to conflict between the paymaster and the sales person.

                                    • Make auto correct an option.

                                      We sometimes want to type in company names in all caps and Spectra used to let us do so but now it auto corrects it to have only the first letter capitalized. IBM should not be Ibm.

                                      • Attach invoices to sessions after the fact

                                        When we have large jobs (sports league or school pictures), occasionally parents call to pay over the phone. It would be nice to enter the invoice quickly while you're on the phone with them and then go through the calendar later to find the session and attach the invoice.

                                        • Outlook connector or send with outlook

                                          On a mac or using the web browser it is slow and inefficient to send mail and would love a way to click send email and bounce to outlook - with some of the predefined email templates we use.
