  2. Our company uses Mail Chimp for email marketing. I'd love an easy way to manage unsubscribes & hard bounce emails to keep CMS in sync with Mail Chimp.

  4. Colors and Sizes that are long easily get cut off in the size / color grid. It would be nice if this window could be resized.

  5. It would be helpful if there was a toggle option in CMS that would then prompt a warning if you attempted to save an order with a credit card payment without it being authorized.

  6. It would be great if standard users were logged out after 15 minutes of inactivity just like the PCI Administrator is. This would reduce security risks even more.

  8. Product Information Screen - Add a Sales Price Field as an alternative to the current Retail Price. This field would be a flat dollar amount -- i.e., Sales Price = $65.00. It would NOT act as a discount or flat dollar amount off. No date range is needed. This field will integrate with our shopping cart (CommerceV3) and be mapped to the Special Price within the cart. This would allow us to use sales price in order entry (versus using another Price Category) and more importantly manage the price in one system (CMS) and upload to the website via the…

  9. When you are in the Temp/Pro-Forma management screen and you click into an order, the manager closes. So if you want to look at another one, you have to start all over again.

  10. It would be nice if when you run a report, the "pathways" that you had to click on to get to that report would print across the top of the page, along with the title of the report and date range you entered. Example: Reports > Inventory > Future Ship by Date. 1-1-2014 to 8-31-2014.

  11. I've been helping with verifying imported orders and it would be so helpful if there were a column that had the ship to state abbreviation.

    For example I'm looking through these orders for specific states to process as I have their exemption. So that would make looking through each one much faster.

  12. It would be nice to input multiple instances of an item in a catalog. Doing so will allow us to see how many times the item was mentioned in the catalog which would tie into the total % of the item.

  13. Make it possible to store supplier email addresses and be able to email purchase orders from CMS rather than exporting the purchase orders first.

  15. In Setup>Advertising>Catalog, the catalogs are listed in alphabetical order. In Contact Manager>Catalog>Choose Catalog, the catalogs are listed chronological order. We'd prefer alpha in Contact Manager like they are in Setup.

  16. Rather than a generic email with tracking websites for various shippers, have different email forms for different forms of shipping. Each could then communicate typical ship times, have a tracking link for only that shipper, etc.

  17. It would be really helpful to have a link to a customers purchase history in contact manager. Perhaps see the Top 20 items they have purchased based on quantity. Or have a quick link to report that shows their history of items purchased for just that customer.

    This would be very helpful when organizing customer call outs to generate sales.

  18. Make email address a required field before saving and order & if not available to be able to check a box (e.g., opt out button) so can save and we'd know not to ask again.

  19. If a salesperson accidentally enters a value greater than 100% as a discount, it would be great if a prompt or alert popped up asking if you really wanted to enter a value great than 100%. For example, if they go to enter 30% in a hurry and accidentally fat finger it an hit 300%. If this is not caught at the moment the order is taken, it can be hard to catch later.

  20. There are times when we upgrade a multi-receiver shipment to a faster, more expensive delivery service, but we only want to charge the ground service rate. We make the adjustment on the Money page, but the Recipient Shipping Total field shows the upgraded service rate charge, which in turn is what prints on the customers invoice, creating confusion for the customer.

    I understand the challenge here. At the moment there isn’t much you could do other than:

    1) adjusting the order’s shipping charge (as you are doing now)

    or

    2) adding a shipping credit line-item for that recipient. Such a product would have a negative price and you’d probably also set it up to be excluded from spending tables so that shipping discount does affect their shipping charge in the spending table.

    Example – http://screencast.com/t/tKOhKzfcgN
    and – http://screencast.com/t/gliRSS4Xt0

    The feature request here will be to treat recipient shipping charges like order level shipping charges, allowing a manual override, ideally with a URL-like link that could be clicked to reset it back to the CMS calculated charge, again like is currently done for the main shipping charge on the Money tab of Order Entry.
