Creative Force can give you all the flexibility in the way you work, from skipping Final Selection or Photo Review step to bypassing External Post-production. You can choose to push a single product or a single position forward by bypassing the External Post-production, at any time!
Please note that if you have a preset with multiple variants and have selected External Post to be your fan-out step, then it is not possible to skip External Post.
Bypass External Post on the product level
This can be accessed via the three-dot menu on the product slide-in or the Actions button on the Products page and Production page. You can do this action at any time during the production.
Once done, reload the page and you will see that the External Post and External Post QC steps are no longer there.
Please note that Bypassing External Post cannot be undone. However, if you need the product to run through External Post again, you will have the below scenarios depending on when you bypass External Post.
If you bypass External Post before the task reaches External Post, you need to reset the task back a step prior to External Post, the task will follow its original workflow setup.
If you bypass External Post when the task reaches External Post, you can reset it back to External Post for the task to go through the step again.
Bypass External Post on the position level
Speaking of positions, in order to skip External Post on the position level you will need to navigate to the Style Guide. From here, go to the Photography tab and then select the Settings of each position. You can see a section called ‘Bypass external post’, simply turn the toggle on and click ‘update’.
