I don't think adding the new icons has made any difference, the growth in page width has occurred gradually over time and I'm sure the suggestions I put forward would help us squeeze more columns on the screen without the need to scroll left to right

I find it's the length of the persons name that makes the biggest difference as the width of the column expands to accomodate the name. This then moves all the other columns over. We have a lot of foreign customers who put their whole name including all the middle names. Can't do anything about this though.

Hi Support
As you added extra coloums over time the page became wider. But Yesterday after you added the 3, then 4 extra icons the tick boxes went off the screen to the right and we have to constantly scroll ovar to tick the boxes then screll left to finf the order number. I have noticed that if we have a customer with a longer tahn average name in the 'customer 'column this will widen the screen even further. Maybe you could limit the width of that column to show less of the full name?

Hi
Could we not just view the surname only?
Also Nick has come up with some good points, one that glares out to me is "Payment Type", not too sure this even needs a heading as it is a tad obvious but shortening to "Payment" would help.

Cheers
Nobby

Good point Nobby, I missed that one, abbreviating "Payment Type" to "Payment" or "Pay Type" would conserve a few more millimeters of page width!

really good sugesstions on reducing the size of the screen that is one thing that I find a bit anoying. Why can't the screen view be made as a tickbox opion under configuration then you could tick on and display only the titles that you want. I have to hide 10 columns at the moment and am constantly scrolling left and right which is a bit of a pain when I want to update a whole group of orders. at the moment when a title is not used you still get a little arrow thing in its place. without them it would be better and using the suggestions to reduce the words would help heaps !!

I love romancart but those improvements would be fantastic !!

a search option on postcode would also be ideal while I am at it :)

...adding in, if you can't drop the first name would it be possible to drop the title? I for one don't really need that in the display :)

... and we use the invoice link to print off the invoice, so as the name is always 'invoice' you could replace that with just an icon and a tool tip of 'view invoice'.

Hi Support
I have just minimised ALL columns in the sales manager except for the order number and Select button columns and the select buttons now show on the screen with the order number. Howerver th 'GO' button does not show and I still have to scroll accross to change a status. If I add say 3 other columns, they automatically widen to stretch accross the page.But the 'GO' button is still out of the page. I suggest you make the page size smaller in width. If you can restrict it to a common width that the majority of merchants use and NOT a wide screen format - this might do the trick.

Another suggestion is to have the new icons in the white space at the top to the right of Romancart logo - this space would allow for a few more icons and merchants would spot them quite easily up there.
