New Feature: Jobs

With the latest release of StudioCloud, version 3.1.275, we have implemented a new feature called jobs. Jobs are used to group clients, events, invoices, and/or projects together.

Some examples of when jobs could be used are below:
  • If you are a wedding photographer a job is ideal for tracking a wedding because many weddings often include more then just the wedding event itself and often have more then just one invoice associated with them. For example, the wedding might also include a bridal photoshoot or another type of  pre-wedding photoshoot.
  • If you are a portrait photographer a job is ideal for a portrait shoot that might include an initial client consultation, the photo shoot, and a sales/preview session.
  • If you are a tattoo artist a job is ideal for a multi-session tattoo or for a single session tattoo that might also include an initial client consultation.
  • If you are a massage therapist a job is ideal to group all of the massage sessions together in one central location.

Here are some other uses for jobs:
  • If you want one central location to track everything that is happening in your business then jobs would be a good fit.
  • If you are a photographer that wants a system to archive a dvd of images for a photo shoot then using the job number would be a great archival method. A good naming system would be to use the job number with a combination of the client name and/or the photo shoot date.

Here is a tutorial on how to create and edit jobs.

This looks interesting, but I'm having a hard time knowing when to use events v. jobs v. projects. Do you have any tutorials that would explain the differences to me?
