Studio Manager updates
Questionnaire templates & predefined samples
Questionnaires are one of the most recent features inside Studio Manager, that helps Pixieset users collect important details and serve their clients better. Recently, we released the Questionnaire Templates functionality to help you create questionnaires faster and optimize your process.
To create your own questionnaire templates and save them for future use - go into your Studio Manager Dashboard > Templates, then click New Template > Questionnaire. Start with a blank questionnaire or use one of the predefined samples we’ve created for you.
In the predefined samples, you’ll find recommended questions based on your type of service - from wedding and elopement photography sessions to family portrait sessions and more. Use the sample templates as they are, or tweak them by removing and adding questions.
Invoice header fields
You can now add custom business information, like identification numbers or tax details, to the header of your invoices. This will also show up when you download the invoice as a pdf.
Go to your Studio Manager Dashboard > Settings > Preferences, and add up to 4 new header fields. Once filled in, the invoice header will automatically save and apply to all your newly created invoices moving forward.
Full Name Signature inside contracts
By default, your business name appears under your signature line inside the contract. Now you can also display your first name and last name under your signature line. Go to your Studio Manager dashboard > Settings > Profile > Edit Business Profile and add your First and/or Last name. Once these have been saved, they will appear under the signature line of new contracts, moving forward.
When you sign the contract, you can choose the option “Type” and your Full Name will automatically apply inside the signature.
Client Gallery updates
Embed videos inside Client Gallery
Now you can share embedded videos inside your client photo collections. We know that many of our users provide photography and filmmaking services to their clients, and need a simple and beautiful way to integrate video content into their client galleries.
Insert videos from Vimeo and YouTube directly into your collections and offer clients a more immersive way to relive their memories. Just open a new or existing collection, click on Add Video > Add YouTube/Vimeo, then paste in the video link.
Pixieset Website updates
New website theme - Seville
Seville is designed for all photographers and is one of our most elegant and airy website themes. Whether you photograph weddings, couples, families, lifestyle portraits, or do commercial and editorial work, Seville’s layouts will suit you perfectly. As a base, this theme combines soft tones and silky, elegant typography. But you can definitely go more edgy with it. Change its look from light to dark with just a few clicks and take this theme from a timeless, airy feel, to a dark design, both equally fabulous and impactful.
If you’re new to Pixieset, all you have to do is sign up for a free account at pixieset.com, open the website dashboard, go into the Design tab and apply the Seville theme. Its pages will be installed just like on the demo site, and you can go ahead and start adding your own content. Here’s a quick guide on how to get started with Pixieset Website
If you’re an existing Pixieset user, you can switch to Seville theme inside your dashboard in seconds. Your content will get transferred automatically into the new layout. Here’s a quick tutorial.
