Before you begin: 

  • Your Job must be configured for Pre-Order under Job Settings:

  • Your Job must have had a Custom Form attached to it while your online pre-orders are coming in:

  • You need Pre-Orders in your Pre-Order Job waiting to be fulfilled

  • You need to have uploaded your Subject Data and Images into your Job before assignment.

Assigning Subjects to Pre-Orders:

Assigning Subjects and Images to Pre-Orders is a two-step process. First, you'll need to assign your orders to Subjects. On the Job's Orders tab, click on Tools > Assign Orders:

You'll be prompted to select match the data you've collected with your Custom Form to the Subject Data fields inside your Job. Blueprint will load a sample for you to compare. Once you've specified the fields, press the green Start button to start assigning orders:

In the assign orders view, you'll see your orders appear in the list on the far-left of the screen (similar to the Subject List on the Subjects tab). You can search for or filter certain orders using the controls at the top of the list. Pick an order to see the data collected and what Blueprint believes is the correct match.

You can assign any order to any subject, or create a brand new subject while assigning the order. Once finished, click sync to save your changes.

Assigning Images to Pre-Orders

After you've finished assigning subjects to your online pre-orders, you'll be taken back to the Job's Orders tab. Click on Tools > Assign Images to start the image assignment process. 

You'll be prompted to confirm the assignment as this cannot be undone when completed. Image assignment will use the Primary Image of the Subject, as well as any specific image mappings specified in any My Design prints that were ordered.

Once finished, you'll notice the red ! will be replaced with an image icon under the Images column to indicate that images have been assigned to the order.
