Getting Started with Blueprint Preferences

Here's a quick run-down covering the different sections in preferences:

My Studio

Enter in your studio's contact information* such as Studio Name, Address, Customer Main Contact and your Studio's Website. You can also set the email address your order invoices will come from.

👨‍🏫 This info is used throughout the system so be sure to keep it up-to-date!

Membership

Here's where you can review your membership details at any time; like your rates and membership expiration. You can also renew your ImageQuix membership or view contact information for the Product Support Team.

👨‍🏫 Don't forget to give them your Membership ID (circled below).

Roles & Permissions

Create and manage roles here to fine-tune what features and data your users have access to and secure the data they don't need. From Assistant Studio Manager to Quality Assurance, you can create a role for just about anything!

You can learn more about creating roles here:

Users

There's no additional charge for adding users. It's a best practice to give everyone their own account. Any user you create can have their role(s) assigned to them here. You can also limit their access to specific Jobs or update passwords.
