Pros: We have been using DesignFiles for a year or more and we have been very happy with it. One of the representative's customer service is the absolute best! We plan on using it even more since we are starting to launch an E-Design division of our business. They only thing that would make it better is if we could do actual 3D drawings and floor plans using our client's room measurements. We have to do them in a separate program and then import all the information. We would definitely pay more for this feature.

Cons: I wish that we could precisely size multiple items the same using actual dimensions like you could in the previous version of the software. As in all the photos could be set at a certain dimension.

It would be great if once we crop, manually remove background or correct the color range of an item, it would stay that way in our library so when we use it again we would not have to do that all over again.

I would love it if the program saved the email addresses after we enter it once so that we would not have to look up our clients email address every time we want to sent them a new design for other rooms.



These things aren't really cons, they are more my wish list!

Overall: Love it!

Pros: I like the ease of importing items to my library and being able to call up categories (rugs, etc). It's client-friendly - allowing boards to be emailed directly to my clients and having them comment back is very helpful. Also like the shop it page for lower-budget clients.

Cons: There are only two things I don't like about this program. The first is that on almost every board, I have images that "ghost". It doesn't matter where they are sourced from, the client can't see some on the board and have to scroll down to shop it page to see all items. It's the thing that makes me look to other programs to be honest, because it looks unprofessional. The second thing is that even though there is a 3D option which is great, I cannot pull outer edges of an image like a rug to appear correct or say a piece of furniture on the side wall of a board. I know it's not a render software, but if it had this feature I wouldn't have to use other programs to do that.

Overall: I overall like DesignFiles and love being able to show a completed design board. It does help to present my ideas to my client in a professional manner without having to make a manual board.

Pros: I love how easy it is to create concept boards. It's super easy to clip products using the DesignFiles extension. I love that I can hide pricing or whole products from my clients (for those trying to "shop me"). It's ridiculously easy to insert the widget onto my websites and social media accounts. And it's just as easy to create design packages. I love the incorporated questionnaire and the vivid concept boards.

Cons: It's time consuming removing the background from products manually and cropping only works horizontally and vertically but not free form or just diagonal. The viewing space when editing a project is impeded by the product drawer and the function menu. I wish it were easier to angle paint as well. Again it can only remain in square form which can be irritating. It would be nice if I could overlay my company's name over my concept boards (unless I'm missing something).

Overall: I've been able to EASILY incorporated eDesign into my decorating business! This allows me to reach clients all over the country. Before incorporating eDesign I'd miss out on clients who didn't live in my service area or who couldn't afford full service. Now, I'm getting an additional stream of revenue. It's nice not leaving money on the table or going broke trying to make it!

Pros: Interface and ease of use

Easy to clip items from sites

Export image and PDF is amazing, we use it all the time

Being able to duplicate designs is key!

Being able to re-order boards

Cons: Took us a while to properly set-up accounts so everyone could see all boards

These are more wish list items but would be nice to be able to select multiple images to re-size/delete/move

Would like to be able to clip multiple images (colors of something) off a site without having to create a new product each time.

The surface area for boards seems very small and we're cramming everything into a small space in the app. We often shrink it down, then re-size it

Would love to use delete button as well as trash can to remove items on boards

Overall: We are able to create boards very quickly, search easily, and send presentations to client right from the app. This is huge! Love the ability to turn off pricing and linking, so clients are focused on the products.

Pros: The ability to create a room set simply with cut out features, sizing options etc. Work can be ordered into client projects, stored for later reference. Pricing, shop it features...long list. This has revolutionised my small design business. I have yet to use all of the available features!

Cons: No floor plan drawing option although can import but would rather have the facility

The cutting out could still be improved

No cropping feature on paint colours, simply sizing up or down. Not enough.

More room sets please, possibly some UK home sets?

I would like a folder option to file finished work...by client

Overall: Positive from the outset. If you do not use CAD this is a great tool for any design business.

Pros: I love that this software helps organize my projects in a professional easy to use way.

Cons: I believe there may be a few issues (or maybe I haven't figured it out) on organizing the products. I often want to delete some of my items since I collect items first then play with the ideas. My lists get long and cumbersome.

Also I wish there were a way to not trigger emails with every comment made on the boards.

Overall: I love this tool and use it with most of my clients. I think my clients like the simple links and like to interact directly on the boards. It helps me so much as an independent designer as I cannot afford much but I need to have professional presentations.

Pros: I love walking into a client's home and showing how interactive DesignFiles can be. It's easy to use, so practical and convenient. I especially like having access to the paint colors from Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams. I like the use of the designer clipper. It has helped me create an extensive library from items across the country. I love the webinars!!

Cons: I would like to see more vendor options than the ones provided. Perhaps more upscale like Restoration Hardware, Blu Dot, more lighting, flooring and fabric options, too.

Overall: Outstanding. Whenever I've had a issue, DesignFiles has been right on top of it. Their customer service chat tab is great and has helped me in times when I needed an immediate answer. Everyone is really helpful and friendly and open to suggestions.

Pros: I like DesignFiles because it is simple to use, very efficient to show clients the color scheme and design layout of a room with 2D and 3D options, and my clients love the fact they can shop products that I recommend.

Cons: I wish we had more options with rotating the items so I can place them in different ways. Also, we need a feature to be able to erase / change attached images on the project details page.

Overall: I enjoy working with DedignFiles because it's a great platform that allows me to show clients my design scheme and layout. I love the clients questionnaire page, and ability to write notes on each item that I pick for them. It's a wonderful platform for communicating well with clients, so I can achieve a final design tailored to my clients needs and taste

Pros: DesignFiles cuts my time in half. The design concept and easy of "shop it" for the client is key. I use to have to do this all by hand and create links myself. Using DesignFiles gives my business the professionalism and quality we need to give our clients what they want. LOVE IT!

Cons: I would like MY Library to Update automatically when added to.

I would like to move around the board to see all the edges without going back to APP.

I would like to be able to categorize my Library by items.

Pros: The DesignFiles program is awesome! I use it daily in my design business. It is very user friendly and easy to navigate through. My clients also appreciate the ease of purchasing items on their own and in their own time frame. I also appreciate the support..the webinars and service that Sheilah and her team provide to the users is priceless!

Cons: I would like to be able to do floor plans through this site instead of having to upload from another site.

Overall: The biggest benefit I would say is the ease it provides for my clients. Having a shopping list come through email with their design has been a real positive for me. Clients appreciate transparency and Design Files gives that.

Pros: I can create professional looking design boards for clients and it makes it so easy for them to approve items individually. It is really easy to use.

Cons: I wish that the board pdf's generated would show up in Landscape orientation so that they would fill the page better. Also, it would be nice if the entire product description would show up on the presentation.

Overall: I love it and CSR is so receptive to suggestions and responds to questions really quickly! This is a great business tool for designers! :)

Cons: Would L-O-V-E a floor plan option so it would be a one stop shop for simple floor plans so you could show specific furniture arrangement AND to check how thing fit, No more best-guessing or going to another site and reloading all the furniture specs again to check fit in the room.

Overall: Very good.

Pros: Ease of use for clients and designer.

We love the customisation features, upload abilities and approve and reject buttons!

We are also in love with payment abilities for a streamline process for our clients...

Cons: improvement:

The background eraser could use some improvements for a faster process.

We can't wait to have an improved version of the inventory ordering/shopping (like a "delivered" option for client to managed, direct billing to get paid for products and tracking info area for products)

Overall: Love you guys! Always improving, super proactif I recommend you to everyone!

Pros: Easy to use, straightforward. Only program I know of like this. Very handy! Great customer support as well.

Cons: More functionality would be great. Perspective rugs would be awesome, and the "Remove Background" feature is kind of useless unless your item is a perfect square or rectangle. Still finding myself having to go into Photoshop to erase a lot of shadows, which really adds to the time because then you have to manually import everything instead of using your handy bookmark.

Overall: Overall a great program, use it ever day. Excited to see it progress!

Pros: It's so easy to clip products, create design boards, and share them with clients. DesignFiles keeps conversations organized, makes it easy to filter what information clients can see, and delivers a professional, easy-to-use shopping list.

I use all these features for e-design work. For full service, I use the design board and pdf creator, with hidden shop links. So fast and easy!

Cons: There are a few minor functions of the design board builder that feel a bit clunky, like having to mouse over the delete icon rather than being able to hit delete on the keyboard. But I've never submitted that request so maybe that's on me!

Overall: Sheilah is fantastic! Available and responsive. Takes your feedback to heart.

Pros: Design Files Software is easy to use and great for creating presentations for your clients.

Cons: I wish the catalog of items clipped would somehow categorize, for example, pillows, sofas, lighting. I would be nice to view the items by category and not have to scroll to get to items at the bottom.

Overall: CSR is great. She is responsive in getting your questions answered. The tool is fabulous, it blows olioboard away! It's better than photoshop too, you can access items you've put on your mood board with a click of the button!

If needed, I can forward to the client and they can shop it directly. HUGE time saver for those clients that want to purchase items themselves. Keeps me out of the middle man role!

Pros: The ease of use for myself and my clients and the very clear attention to detail and constant updates and improvements from the Design Files team!

Cons: Would love to see more vendors included in the easy to add product list but there are a great deal of options as of now as well and it is very easy to add in my own links.

Overall: Design files is helping to keep all of my communications with my clients organized in one easy to use platform. I also love being able to accept payments from clients directly through the site to make the entire process easier and a one stop shop type experience. I actually love that it is fairly simplistic compared to other sites out there which usually means less room for malfunctions or clients having difficulty navigating. I am able to upload my own presentations or create presentations directly on the website and am able to run my business with complete control.

Pros: Design files makes designing every client's room not only easy, but enjoyable. It is so easy to use any item that either I or my clients find online and clip it right into my library. I love the options available for customizing the site with my own branding, as well as customizing what my clients see. Everything works together seamlessly. Customer support has been top notch, and I feel very secure in their hands.

Cons: I wish I could crop the images more closely for the pieces that don't offer images of it one. almost like tracing it's outline and crop it. It would also be nice to have the option to angle pieces better, but I can't fault DF for that.

Overall: Design Files has made eDesign so much fun, that I could seriously sit and design with it all day and be happy!

Pros: It allows me to create beautiful design boards for clients and has all the products in the design for the client to easily buy and budget

Cons: It only has US sites incorporated so I have to be careful as a Canadian designer to bring in all products available in Canada. I've run into times where I added something from the catalog in design files only for the client to come back to me and say the shipping was more than the product itself because it was in US dollars. Also you still can't pivot the furniture to get different views so planning a room in the orientation it will be in real life is difficult

Overall: It solves my problem of creating beautiful design boards but takes me a lot longer since I'm Canadian as I have to manually add all my pieces because the catalog is pretty useless to me.

Pros: I love the flexibility to add my own products. That is not an option in a lot of software that I have seen. That is critical to my business.

Cons: I want to link my customers back to purchase their items from me instead of going to the retailer directly. A lot of my business comes not only from sale of items, but rental, so its a really big deal. Designfiles isn't set up that way. I had to get pretty creative to make it work and frankly it adds a lot of manual steps for my clients. Maybe an API of some sort with trade partners would solve the problem...not sure.

Overall: Overall, its been great. The tool is easy to use and convenient.

Pros: It's useful for web based back and forth conversations with my interior design clients. I like that they can approve or reject items directly in Design Files and they can also make comments on each item. I also like that the clipper does a decent job of removing backgrounds behind items so that I have less "noise" on my mood boards, without the hard work of removing the background myself.

Cons: It seems like it's still in development phase and there are improvements that could be made to make it even more useful and intuitive.

Overall: It's been good! I would recommend it for the purpose of building mood boards.

Pros: This is a great tool to use for design concepts and mood boards. It has allowed me to show my clients what a proposed room design will look like. I also like that it keeps a total of everything that I have sourced so that I can be sure to stay in the client's budget.

Cons: It would be nice if there was an app so that I could access my designs on go. If there is a feature like this, let me know!

Overall: DesignFiles has allowed me to stay organized and also it has helped me to put design concepts together quickly so that I can show a client what I am envisioning.

Pros: I love how I can clear a background fairly easily without bringing into Photoshop. There's so many great features that make my life SO much easier. The shopping lists and ease of clipping an item off a website are two of my favorite things.

Cons: I love how I can clear a background but think it could be even more user-friendly with the options of zooming up on an item and being able to clear more than one segment of an item. A chair with a see-through hole in the middle, for example.

Overall: Love it! I'll never use anything else!

Pros: It creates a realistic and compelling presentation to a client. I also use it to brainstorm ideas for myself. I can quickly make a mood board or take a little more time and create a perspective with a personal touch that a client can really relate to.

Cons: I wish I could copy and paste an image w/o having to save it to my computer first. Also, the background tool doesn't work particularly well unless the image is clearly defined against a white ground. And if the object itself is white, it doesn't work at all.

Overall: It's quick and easy and actually fun to use. My presentations always look great and the response to them is quite positive. I've had many requests from clients, architects, and teachers for the name of the app. Thanks for creating this great tool!

Pros: Ease of adding new items and descriptions with clipper, placing and cropping images to look creative

Cons: Not being able to pull from all websites, I can not clip from Lee Industries and it is very time consuming to screen shot and manually add. I have called about this and reported to customer service but so far I have not seen any changes

Would like to see a crop/edit function for circles and ovals

Overall: Makes presenting projects to clients much easier and self explanatory. Like that we can send by email and receive feedback.

Pros: The best feature is that I can capture items from the supplier's website directly including all important details like the link to the website, dimensions, any piece of information that can be useful (price!). It look professional, makes communication with the client very easy and smooth. I love it. Excellent tool for interior designers.

Cons: New features are added all the time. The only thing I missed was the ability to change currency but it's solved now.

Overall: See above.

Pros: I love that I can show my clients a visual of what their room will look like with all the details!

Cons: I feel like there should be more "real room" backdrops.

Overall: I really appreciate that I can upload furniture and design details that my client can see and are able to visualize what their room can look like once we have all the furniture. I've found that there are limits to how the images can be displayed, and I'd love to be able to make things more 3 demential

Pros: I love DesignFiles. The technology makes my sourcing of furniture & decor a breeze and my clients (when shopping the items) find it very easy to use too! And their customer service is truly some of the best I've ever seen. Whenever I have a question or suggestion, I hear back immediately. And they follow-through with most suggestions for software enhancements.

Cons: I would love to see a little more complex features such as more customization of the questionnaire, homepage, organization of the dashboard but for the basics, it definitely gets the job done.

Pros: Information keeping tool, with links, ability to get item approvals and project totals. Interactive messaging with clients is fantastic.

Cons: BG adjustment always needs adjusting. Would like at 0 default. No ability to set font per project. Inability to set font size for consistency. Would be nice if library items could be on a list without needing to make a design board. Frustrating to always go back to # 1 board at return to app phase.

Overall: Great program to use with clients and be able to access from multiple devices. We have tweaked this to work as our contractor set of specs as well.

Pros: Designfiles.co is user friendly and so easy to get started. We have used the design boards in several investor homes & will continue to grow and become more knowledgeable about all that the software has to offer. I really love the ways in which Designfiles is designed to be appealing to the clients eye.

Cons: Hmmm....I am not sure I have a least....

Overall: The benefits I have realized is the ease at which to begin this side of our staging & redesign business. As the board are put together, which is fun to do, the client has a beautiful visual before them. It helps the design of the room come alive for them & they get excited.

Pros: the tools and software, the ease to look out for pretty stuff. THE WEBINARS

Cons: the fact that I just did not know how to use the refersion program, and they did not linked paypal, only stripe, as for me that is a big deal. The brands were not that easy to use, but thanks Lord you could integrate more brands , the price tool was good too, but not that revolutionary for me.colors, name, secondary and merchandising stuff

Overall: I ddi not used it to produce Money, but it was fun to use. It just did not solve anything, I just liked it better as Polyvore. When I needed to use this kind of tool I always returned to photoshop.

Overall: I have had an incredible experience with DesignFiles. I would highly recommend it to anyone in search of great software.
