We are back, and this time with new and impactful out-of-the-box reports, as well as updates to check-in flows and style guides!

But wait, there’s more on the horizon - in addition to the forecast from our last sprint release, we also have key enhancements coming around product and sample management in Editorial projects in February as well. Enjoy the read!

New Outfit Products Report for Insights

Now presenting a whole new window into outfit-based metrics for your studio!

This new report provides an overview of all the outfits in your instance. Each row contains an outfit and its production type, the columns to the right show the Primary, Secondary, and Styling Products for that outfit, as well as its sample code. The number of columns updates dynamically depending on the content displayed.

Outfit Product Report

The dashboard can be found in the “Data Reports” section in Insights and can be filtered by the client name, primary product code of the outfit, job code, or outfit code. You can use the date filters to outfits based on the outfit created date or the photography finished date. By default, the report returns all outfits that were shot in the last 7 days.

New User Overview for Insights

This new report summarizes information about all your users in Creative Force!

Creative Force User Overview

It includes information around the User Types (Full-time, Day Pass, and Resource) and User Roles. You can quickly identify users who have not logged for a long time, their status, or employment type.

At the bottom of the report, Users are aggregated by User Role. The dashboard can be found in the “Data Reports” section in Insights and can be filtered by Client name, User Full Name, User Type, and User Role.

Check-in Flow - Show Job Information

When scanning in a sample associated with different jobs, we’ve now provided visibility into information from all of those jobs.

This new update will help you and your team make the informed decisions in a single screen!

Scan Flow Settings - Set Scope to Ignore Inactive Products

With this new feature, we are giving more control over your settings for scan flows!

When you’re scanning sample barcodes (to check them in, for example), you can now choose to ignore inactive products when scanning. This setting is saved per user.

Check the “Ignore Inactive Products” Setting to Use this New Feature

Check the “Ignore Inactive Products” Setting to Use this New Feature

When this scope setting is checked, you’re able to scan away, automatically only checking in samples associated with active products!

Note: when this scope setting is checked, inactive products now “do not exist” in the context of this scan flow. So, if you scan a sample code associated with an inactive product, you will receive the same message as a product that does not exist.

Style Guide View - Change Default View to List View

We all have style guides, and for many of us, we have too many to count! This is where we can provide more ease of use and bring relevant information (like assigned workflow!) front and center.
