  1. Event favorites - export a list of filenames a must ! :)

    Just that - a text file with a list of favorite filenames from an event gallery. So it can be then used in e.g. Lightroom or PhotoMechanic.

    • Globally modify the event Share email template vs having to modify each time an event is added.

      I want to modify the Smugmug event share email template so that it is MY template that is the default when an event is added.

      • Pre-Registration for Events

        The thing I loved about Pictage when I used them was the ability for people to pre-register to see an event when it was released. I would post a link on my blog that took guests to the event page where they could pre-register to see the pics once the bride/groom (event owners) approved the images to be released. Really, that was the best thing about Pictage that made it a hard decision to leave. It would be fabulous if you could do something similar for all us wedding/event photographers!

        • preset gallery settings for people's event favorites

          We can set gallery settings for all the other pages, but when a client adds event favorites I would like to be able to set the default look and feel of that page also.

          • Notification when someone makes changes to their Personal Event Favorites folder.

            The information is already being tracked in the "participants and registered guests" section under 'manage events' and that page would be ideal to use for notifications.
            Currently you must navigate to each event to find this information and while it is available and very useful it would be so much nicer/easier to be notified in some fashion when a client adds or removes photos from their event galleries. Particularly when you have numerous events to manage.
            The type of notification is of less importance to me at the moment. It could be a pop up box or tone if you…

            • Allow Events To Appear Beneath a Folder

              As a professional photographer, I've setup folders for my clients to find their photos easily on my smugmug page. For instance, I have "Engagement" and "Wedding" folders that I organize my clients photos in. I want event galleries to be featured beneath these categories instead of a "Featured Events" on the home page. This allows me to keep the same, professional layout my clients are used to seeing. If nothing else, please let us edit the verbiage on "Featured Events" so we could make it say, "Featured Weddings"

              • Get notified when a client finished selecting their favorites in an event gallery

                After clients choose favorites we don't get notified like an album proofing website would do. A very simple feature, it's mind boggling it doesn't exist already on smugmug.

                • Stop Event Photos/Images from Turning Grey when Favorited

                  When a client 'hearts' their favorite photos the photo goes to 'grey', even when selected the larger image on the right side of the screen still has that ugly grey overlay. In order to see the image clearly they have to click the image a third time for it to fill the entire screen. The only photos that are clear are the images that the client doesn't like, which I feel makes no sense. A fix that I suggest would be to place a star or a heart underneath each image (and the file name or number would be helpful…

                    • Add a group email feature in order to email all registered event guests

                      I would like to be able to send out the same email to everyone that has registered for an event without having to do it one by one. It is a feature that could be used to announce that an event is ready for viewing, or that new images have been added. Something where you email all members (or registered guests) and they are all blind copied.

                      • Preserve Categories & Subcategories in Events

                        Wouldn't it be AWESOME if events kept their category and subcategory levels? Currently the breadcrumb is event > gallery. Event > Category > Subcategory > Gallery would be perfect.

                        • Change how registering for an event works

                          When a customer registers for an event right now it requiers them to wait for an email and then follow that link to be logged in properly. There needs to be a better way. When they register for an event they should be taken right to their page.

                            There should be a keyboard shortcut to mark an event photo as a favorite. And when you hover your mouse over the "Add to Favorites" button it should tell you which key that is.

                            • Easy gallery creation from within an event

                              It would be nice if I could go to create an event and instead of adding existing galleries only, I could create the galleries within the event. It's seems easier than having to create galleries and upload and then create the event to add them to. I just want to be able to do it in a more correct order especially since the events are getting created long before the photos are taken.

                                It would be nice to be able to merge the favorites lists of participants in events. So a bride and groom can both pick their favorites, then you can merge them or cross reference them.

                                • Give Feature Event blocks the ability to choose items

                                  I've created 2 Events to include multiple galleries so when the relevant gallery is selected on a page the Required Registration form is activated. The problem is this can only be done by inserting a Featured Event block on the relevant page, which in turn holds another problem. If the 'Show On Homepage' checkbox is selected when initially creating an Event the galleries will show within the Featured Event block, but what if other Events are created with the same settings and have no relevance to the Featured Event block you've inserted on your page? All galleries show up within…

                                    • Create an event from gallery

                                      Easier way to create an event would be to create it from the gallery itself.

                                      • History messages sent to clients on Event Manage

                                        Is there any waay that I can see the message(s) that I have sent my clients from the Manage Event console?

                                        If not, I would like to suggest that you have a feature that automatically would send the Pro a copy of the message. That way we can keep track of any communication sent to our customers, especially if it includes a coupon code.

                                        • Require an email address to view an event

                                          We use to use a different proofing system that wasn't as nice, but it did have the option to require an email address to view an event. The great thing about that was the system would automatically send out a reminder email at a predetermined time (we set it to 1 month and then again at 3 days) prior to the removal of the gallery. We would get a ton of sales in that 3 day window from all the procrastinators who still wanted to order prints from the wedding. Now we have no way to know who is viewing…
