Work Order status

Modified on Fri, 28 Jun at 9:18 AM


Work orders are a central part of ProStudio and photo production. It is the work order that keeps the whole photo production together and this is where all the requirements for each photo shoot is specified.


Configure Work Order Status

Each work order may have different statuses depending on where they are in the workflow. To make this adjustable to your specific needs, these statuses are dynamically defined. 

  1. Go to the "Settings/Advanced"
  2. Select "Work Order Status"
  3. Click "Add new status"
  4. Fill in the fields
  5. Click "Save"


Filelds to till in

The configuration gives you some options to fill in and these are:

  1. Name
  2. State
  3. Color
  4. Default
  5. Is Archived
  6. Sort Order


Name is what you want to call the status, this is what will be shown in all the panels where the status is visible so names that are explanatory are recommended.

State: Each status will have a "State" connected to it. The different "State" options are fixed and cannot be changed. They are used to be able to monitor progress and measure efficiency. The various "States" are:

  • To Do
  • In Progress
  • Waiting
  • Blocked
  • Completed
  • Cancelled
  • Archived


Color: You may define how many statuses you want, the color of each status and the sort order.

Default for new is the starting status for any newly created workflow, you can only define (1) status to be default for new. 

Is Archived means that you have a status that serves as an archive folder. All the archived Work Orders will not be visible when working, unless you specifically include them.

Sort order is used to define how the dropdown list should appear in the work order dashboard.
