Add 'other for gender in staff maintenance5 votes
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.3 votes
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!3 votes
Added security options to limit access to Reports and Sales
New status options, under a button on Artwork.
An Artwork Status that identifies artworks that are part of a 'community collection,' 'cultural collection' or 'cultural fund' i.e instead of being marked Artist Stock etc8 votes
Added under Consignment Menu, works like Consignment but removes works from the ability to be sold or consigned.
I would like an extra section under artist history to include licensing agreements. These are different to commissions and I need somewhere to collate all the material as a number of artists have agreements in place. It would be good if this could include when the license expires7 votes
Added 2 document upload options for artists
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.16 votes
Added under Cataloguing, Add Artwork images
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.1 vote
All Payments to sales are now tracking the date in the payment to the artists accounts.
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.8 votes
Add Product is now similar to artworks, under search you have products and under cataloguing you have add products.
This now has a lot more details for each product including images.
These can be all accessed via the API aswell
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 purposes2 votes
Choice to stocktake both or product or just artwork
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)1 vote
Would be very useful for hiding culturally sensitive information of deceased artists on websites (e.g. photos)1 vote
Added to API
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.1 vote
Resources has an updated Web Services doc which includes this new feature
Instead of 'Artwork Maintenance' page have 'Artwork Information' or 'Artist Information' not 'Artist Maintenance'.1 vote
Have the ability to change the font size of the text in Artist biography.1 vote
This can be done either on the Bio report on in the text. Contact support for more help here.
Being able to set your own favourite reports (you choose the ones you use most)1 vote
You are able to add your own favourite reports already. Check out the Reports video on how to do this. http://feedback.sam.org.au/knowledgebase/articles/1153567-reports-help
Integrating SAM with any accounting software would automate and simplify a lot of manual process in terms of replicating sales data information from SAM to any financial system. It would also provide greater visibility in terms of sales for both the art centre and the finance for example invoice generated in SAM should be automatically feeding straight to the financial system and payment of invoices should be the same where the finance team receives payment and art centres should be able to automatically looking at paid invoices in SAM. The current system of exporting is time consuming (very labour intensive). Please look at developing an API for SAM to be able to integrate with financial systems.

New Subject Builder added to Admin.
Allowing you to customise the message for a SAM page like artworks. If you make no changes the default subject will be used.
Consignment ref # and sales ref # to be placed on the same part of the page. SO that it is consistent across the pages.1 vote
