Can it be possible to enter customer details directly into each invoice (email, name, address, phone number), instead of manually creating a new customer each time in another window. With the amount of sales coming through it is a huge task to create each customer in a separate window. That way, we can send out the invoice/artwork certificate etc as soon as we enter the invoice.
And then we can keep the 'customers' section for consignments and regular customers.4 votes
When viewing a sale, it would be great to be able to see the customer details or click through to customer profile - such as phone number and email address, without having to exit the sale screen.
Also adding in if an item has been posted, and even a place to add in tracking details would be great.1 vote
Add a 'contract signed' button and date box for artist agreements in the confidential section of artist history.1 vote
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.
We would like to be able to accept donations through SAM. It would be great to be able to process one transaction for artwork sales and donations.4 votes
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
