I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Create a User Access with Limited Access only: CATALOUGE + SEARCH + CONSIGN

    Often you have a Volunteer or a Staff Member work for your business for a short term contract. You do not want the person to have full access to sales, financial accounts, and artist accounts for your organisation, however you do want them to be able to perform simple and useful tasks such as:
    - Catalouge Artworks
    - Search Artworks & Consignments
    - Add Consignments
    I thought there was already a volunteer account set up like this, however there simply is not and it would be extremely useful to have this limited user account available.
    Thank you!

    • Request Independent Jobs for SAM & be Invoiced as an Independent Art Centre / Business

      Be able to independently contact Comp Net (Adam) and request for a specific report, user access, or other request to be created for your own art centre, and be able to create a job and be invoiced as an independent art centre for the work. Each Art Centre operates slightly differently and has their own business needs and requests.

      • It would be great to be able to fill in creation and purchase date!!

        As work are often created before they get entered into SAM, or in Maruku case purchased, dates can be different. Unfortunately SAM doesn't make any distinctions. To have two possible dates to entre would make this so much easier.

            • Develop WebActive API - For Art Centres that manage online shops with SAM

              Allow more information to be fed into the in the API (especially adding products!!) & Create 2 way API writing - so that our web developers (particularly Skink & OM4) can improve our capacity to manage our online shop through SAM.

              • would be possible to batch upload a folder of artwork images to SAM, if they were named the same as the catalogue number?

                I would like to suggest the creation of a function to batch upload a folder of artwork images to SAM, if they were named the same as the catalogue number. This would mean that every so often, you could upload a heap of images of artworks rather than going into each artwork's maintenance page and upload images individually.

                • Forward dating Artists Payments

                  Artists payments can currently be entered 1 week in advance only. Should an artist want a particularly large payment over 4 weeks, you need to go back in to rekey the additional payments. If the dates were opened further, you would be able to prekey future dated payments, reducing the double handling of a single transaction.

                    • Products - Add story, Images, API, sizing etc.

                      Create functionality similar to Artworks but for merchandise.
                      Would be great if we could have cups, plates, mugs, fashion etc in one spot & for it to come online with the API.

                      • Stocktake issue

                        I think it would be easier if the stocktake could be spilt between merchandise and artworks so that it is easier at end of fiscal year to monitor merchandise for audit purposes. Artwork does not have to be stocktaked for audit purposes

                        • SAM API: real-time two-way sale notifications to prevent duplicate sales

                          We can prevent duplicate sales by implementing real-time sale notifications between the SAM server and the API clients (online shops). The communication will happen in both ways. When a sale is processed in SAM, the SAM server will notify the API clients. When a sale is closed through an API client, the client will notify the SAM server.

                          Draft specification: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1mp_zLFRYI-xUdghUA7PBWhv-yjv2z4le4wNro3Qe4Qw/edit?usp=sharing

                            Right now it's only possible to retrieve a (compiled) ArtistName via the RetrieveArtistDetails function. It'd be useful to be able to also get each of the names separately (First Name, Surname, Other Name, Traditional Name)

                              • SAM API: retrieve all artwork images

                                It's possible to upload multiple artwork images to SAM but it's not possible to pull them to a website via the API. This would be particularly handy for 3D objects as buyers need to see them from different angles.

                                    This would allow potential buyers to know where about the artist is from (which part of Australia) in case they want to use an artist local to their area and to read the story behind the artwork and help them select an appropriate artwork to buy.

                                      • Export - Payments

                                        Payments from the Art Centre account get exported the same as from artists accounts, currently they are not exported at all.

                                        • Tracking artworks from other art centres

                                          We use SAM to manage our own artists works, products, but also artworks from other art centres that we show in exhibitions. We need a means to track the trajectory of these artworks clearly for everyone - so that would include artworks incoming - artworks sold - and artworks returned to original art centre.
