  1. Save Column Chooser settings for file>Client search (ctrl+L)

    In the Client Search (Ctrl L) you can currently use the column chooser, but those settings are not preserved if you return to search.

    If you are in the middle of creating a hub report, it is helpful to be able to pull up a client using Ctrl+L if they call or come in, without losing your progress in a hub report.

    • Be able to set yearbook selection cut off by school year

      It would be helpful to be able to say for the class of 2018 at John Smith High School, the cut off for yearbook selections is September 15 2017, and then when we add the class of 2019-- set a seperate yearbook cutoff date.

      If you forget to change the date before you start a new season of seniors, everything that gets uploaded to IBY still has the previous years' cut off date, which means they cannot make a YB selection. To fix, you have to reupload everything that's been photographed for the current year.

      • Make scheduled communications dynamic

        Would be wonderful to be able to create a schedule of reminders for a season, so that on specific dates you could send emails via communication center to a group of clients based on data at that point-- so you could schedule Senior Portrait reminders for July 4, August 1, etc, in May or June, and the mailing list would update itself depending on the data at the scheduled mailing date.

        • Allow lists of Triggers, Session Time Slots, etc. to be sorted, filtered, etc.

          We have 120+ different triggers, and it would be helpful to be able to simply sort them to view in alphabetical order. I can't find any rhyme or reason to how they are listed, so a lot of time is spent scrolling through the list to find what I need.

          • Online Booking - Provide Main Categories with Session Types as Sub Items

            This idea was posted before and was closed for some reason before its completion.

            We need to update the online booking experience with StudioPlus to be more user friendly. One way to do this is to have "Categories" for the Products and Services bing offered. In our case, we would set up the following categroies:
            Baby Portraits
            Child Portraits
            Family Portraits
            Executive Portraits
            Senior Portraits

            The sole purpose of each of these categories is to serve as a link to the actual session types which can be scheduled. Right now, we would have to list a dozen or so different…

            • Acuity - myStratus Integration

              A real weak spot in StudioPlus is the online appointment system. It is just not as polishes as it should be.

              A logical fix would be to set up the necessary hooks in StudioPlus so that highly developed online appointment systems like Acuity can be integrated with StudioPlus and we aren't handcuffed into double entry of data if we want our client to have a positive online scheduling experience.

              Please consider this as a way to make StudioPlus more valuable to those of us loyal clients who have stuck with you for so long. Thank you.

              • Add a much more 'today'-look for the online bookings

                The booking tool that integrates with our website does not look professional at all. Looks more like 1998...
                It would be nice to have it look more as websites look today, better styling, or custom CSS possibilies.

                • Option to customize and remove snapshot from the home screen.

                  We do not want our income numbers visible at all to our employees and clients. It can be unchecked in the home page settings but always appears with new users and at random.

                  • let us print to our 2"x4" mailing labels.

                    We would like to print large sized mailing labels using Avery 5163 (2x4" labels, 10 per sheet).

                    • when custom fields are renamed to a usable name, can the usaable name show in the advanced search field.

                      when you go to Advanced Search to find a field created from a custom field, can the custom name show. If you create a field at the moment you need to remember the origional name (ie Custom Name 1) to search for that data. It would be more sensible if the field you searched for displayed as the usable name (ie File Number).

                      • Add the ability to set the SMS and Lead Source fields in web forms

                        We use web forms on iPads at exhibitions to collect leads and put them directly into MyStratus. We want to set SMS to true so we can create a trigger to send them a text while they are still at the exhibition. Currently, there is no work around to achieve this. There is no way to set Lead Source in a web form, only Client Status. Currently the only way to set this is to export the client data to a spreadsheet, modify it and then re-import it.

                          When I link an email to a client, it would be great to see a description next to the tasks available to link to ...as right now its just a bunch of numbers...and i never know what the tasks are by just numbers. Not sure if Im missing something here...

                            When Spectra assigns the automated sitting #, there is NOT an option to have the sitting # 1st and the Last Name directly after it? We organize our files by the sitting # NOT the Last Name. Can you add this option?

                                  At present, we use the high school senior as the client, but use their parent's email address, as that who we are dealing with. This creates a lot of problems, especially when the parent has multiple children you have photographed (which is what is supposed to happen if you run your studio properly).

                                  The dilemma is that when an incoming email is received from the parent about the child we are currently working with, there is no guarantee that their email will be linked to that particular student.

                                  A simple (while maybe not the most elegant) fix for this would…

                                    • Have an "add hyperlink" option when sending a blank email or editing a form letter from the client communication screen.

                                      While I have templates set up with all our most commonly used links, sometimes I might want to add an extra line of info in an email to a client about a specific example we had discussed & link them to it, or similar.
                                      In order to do this at the moment I have to edit the whole template in design tools, send it to the client, & then re-edit back to the original template. Which is very frustrating.

                                      • Integrate with Zapier.

                                        Integrate with Zapier. Should be fairy easy to set up I think. We use other platforms like Click Funnels to generate a ton of leads. Would love if the contact information could get passed through straight into MyStratus. It would be possible with Zapier I believe. There is also a ton of other stuff you can do with Zapier. Having Zapier with MyStratus = you can do anything you want.

                                        • Have the ability to export client statements for all invoices, not just invoices with past due balances

                                          We do a lot of business portraits. In a given month we might have 10 or 15 or more sessions from a given company. We currently then have to send the company 10 or 15 (or more) invoices for payment. It seems that right now we can only export a statement of past due invoices. We'd make it easier for the client company to keep track of all the orders and send one check if we could send a statement showing all the invoices we sent, not just the past due ones.
