How to Create a Job

Quickly and easily create and schedule jobs.

What's a job?

A Job consists of two main things:

  1. Production card(s) - A job is a logical grouping of designs, products, and orders that need processing. Production cards are the building blocks of a job. They provide a flexible way to visualize and organize work that needs to get done.
  2. Workflow - A workflow is a series of steps or tasks required to complete a job/production. InkSoft allows you to build custom production workflows that can be assigned when creating a job.

How to Create a New Job

Select Production Cards

The first step in creating a job is to select the production cards you wish to include in a job.

InkSoft provides two important ways to visualize and organize production that needs to be scheduled.

Group By

This feature allows you to easily sort/filter to visualize production cards by design, order, product, or all open. This is useful in creating jobs and scheduling production based on a relationship level.
