Getting Started with Jobs

🤔 What is a Job?

Think of a Job like a folder that contains all of the Images, Orders, and Subject Data for a specific shoot or event. Everything you built and configured in Blueprint is used as the building blocks for a new job.

Any local changes made in a Job are to be synced back to the ImageQuix Cloud and be made available on every device you use.

Creating your first job - explained

Click on the Jobs tab to access the Jobs table. This is where all jobs the studio has created are accessed and managed. Click on the Job Title to open an existing job, or use the green + New button to create a new job:

There are multiple pages with options to configure during setup, but this section will only go through the minimum requirements needed to create a job.

Once you've opened the New Job Setup tool, enter the following: 

Job Title

Make sure to make this something easily identifiable for both the studio and your clients. They can see the title when they visit their gallery, while browsing your Studio link, or on the order invoice.

Job Type

The available selections are:

  • Wedding
