  1. project management - Upcoming Jobs

    I really would like to see some sort of Project Management... I need something for all the TO DO or upcoming jobs. Mabe like a job board that Field techs can pick from when they have a down time to work on projects or jobs. I keep having a hard time managing all the TO DOs out there. Stuff that really doesn't need a ticket until we go to do it..

  2. Quick Email to existing customers

    Once in a while we just want to send a quick email message to a customer, but still have it appear through their portal (to be able to track it with their account).

    For instance, someone wrote "please update our billing email address to xxxxxx@yyyy.com" on a piece of paper along with their mailed in payment this month. It would be cool to make a quick email in their account that says "Hey. We just updated your email as requested. Thanks!" Without creating a ticket, and still have everyone know that it was taken care of.

    Not to replace…

  3. field jobs info disappears

    When hovering over field jobs, the information pop up disappears almost immediately. Would be better if the information stayed up until the mouse was no longer hovering over the appointment.

  4. Make restricted inventory items for only authorized users

    Loving the new "merged" inventory system! It was such a pain having to choose which location the inventory item was at. However, there was one nice feature:

    I have 10 techs, 3 managers and 1 district manager, plus me. With the old inventory system, we were able to add items like "manager discount" to a non-standard location, and only allow managers to "log in" to that location. That way, only a manager could issue a "managers discount" line item.

    With all inventory items available to all users, there are no items available to specific users. Also, there is no work…

  5. Web design and hosting services module

    My idea is to integrate a module to sell and invoice other services which could really use the existing recurring invoicing feature.

    Its no news that computer repair is becoming very competitive as computers become more popular and most of us have emerged into other related industries such as web design, hosting, security systems and even printing.

  6. Combine 'Update Type' in ticket comments with ticket 'Status'

    In order to provide transparency with the customer, as well as making ticket management easier, wouldn't it make sense to combine these two fields? eg. PC has been fixed, ticket for that job is marked as 'Resolved' and it sends an email/SMS out to the customer notifying them of that, as well as a custom message sent on the technician's behalf.

  7. LinkedIn addition to social media for Marketr

    Can we add a LinkedIn icon and link for Marketr and other places that have social media in Repairshopr?

  8. Survey system for RepairShopr, integrated with customer tickets

    Include functionality similar to MarketR where a customer receives an automated email response after a ticket has been closed, asking them to rate the company/tech, using custom fields. This would be a nice way to gauge customer satisfaction and can be kept as simple as possible. The survey will be tied to the customer and / or ticket for later review, and reporting module could be incorporated.

    Hey there -

    Can you just sign up for a free surveymonkey account and put the link in a Marketr campaign?

    My feeling is this already works, and we probably don’t need to build anything

  9. Special order parts.

    Currently it appears the only way to put in a part order is to have it tied with a ticket. There are parts and products that are ordered only once, and that either don't require installation, or the the customer chooses to install themselves. This means no need for a ticket. It would be nice to associate a part order to customer, but not require a ticket.

  10. Automatically calculate markup

    We (like many other repair shops) use a standard markup strategy and pricing chart. It would be awesome to have an option in inventory to use a set markup rate, or use a pre-selected markup option.

    By this, I mean you could have a few price ranges with corresponding markup rates, like: Parts that cost $1-$25 have a 100% markup, parts $26-50 are 60%, $51-100 is 30%, and $100+ are 20%. The other option (if not global like previously mentioned) would be item #65484 has an auto-markup of 25%, or alternatively $15.

    This would take almost all of the work…

  11. Ticket title on the dashboard description

    It would be very helpful to have the ticket title apart of the dashboard short description. (Email isn't helpful at a glance if space needs to be made)

  12. Mobile Barcode or App.

    Being that a lot of us in the shop use iPhone's or iPad's; having a mobile barcode option to quickly pull up a client would be very handy. I'm not sure if this can be done via the mobile version of the site or not but also an App (even if just tied to the mobile version website) would be awesome!

  14. Change "Assets" from button to a field

    I like the check-in process for a new ticket, except the asset button. Everything else is a field that I can view, but the asset button hides all the info in a new window. You should be able to see the attached assets at a glance and add/remove them in the same window. I don't mind the new window to add a new asset, but it seems silly to hide information as important as that.

    Also, I don't use field jobs yet, but I imagine it would be helpful for that too. Bottom line, everything being visible decreases the ability…

    Thanks Ryan – these are obvious improvements we have just put off because of the time involved – it’s more difficult to put these types of complex things inline in the form sometimes, and in the interest of getting a feature out we sometimes do so with a less-than-perfect UI.

    We are very aware of these types of things, and it’s on our list!

  15. Add Source Description to Vendor Profile

    It would be nice to have a primary reference note for each vendor in the system. Some vendors have dumb names and it's hard to remember what we use them for. I'd like to make their primary field identify what we use them for - like ABC Manufacturing Inc (Laptop Chargers).

  16. Customizable Payment Confirmation Page

    Allow for full layout and text customization on the confirmation page. For example changing "This transaction has been approved." to something a little more friendly like "Thanks, $Customer firstname$ We've received your payment." And then a button to both view/download the PDF with the PAID on it along with automatically emailing a copy of the PDF with the PAID on it anytime a invoice is paid (from here or inside the system) - using the thank you/paid email template - so instead of the 'Print this page for your records' it could say 'download this PDF for your records -…

  17. Ability to sync Google Tasks with dashboard reminders

    I am sure the Google Tasks API is just an extension of the Calendar API - It would be great if I could have all of my reminders/tasks in one place (especially on my mobile/tablet). How easy would it be to implement this?

  19. Customizable Templates

    It would be nice if we could create custom templates using the foundation already in place with the invoice template features. I am thinking along the lines of custom letters, proposals, etc using the same tags already being used on the invoice templates. We often send letters to customers or potential customers introducing ourselves. It would be nice if we could create a template for that type of thing using the tags already in repairshopr so that it automatically populate name and address information. Maybe even create a tag for ticket or asset name so we could refer to that…

  20. Allow common/favorite parts to be saved in Parts section

    It would be very helpful to be able to store information for parts we need to order all the time and generally do not keep in stock. For example, when creating a Part Order for a ticket, it would be great to be able to either manually type in the part information (as you can now) and select from a drop down menu of common parts. Kind of like the Inventory section, but instead of saving info for parts you have in stock, simply bookmarking/earmarking common part info to be used repeatedly when creating Part Orders.
