Tips & Tricks in Review: December 2021

Every week we send out an email to existing clients with helpful tips and tricks for using Details Flowers Software. The Support Team looks at trending questions each month and works to identify ways we can help to spread knowledge to everyone using the platform. Make sure you're subscribed to the Education & Support messages from Details to get these helpful emails! 

Here's a recap of what we covered in December in the Tips & Tricks series!

Themed Collections

Last month we looked at how you might create a themed collection - it was for Thanksgiving, remember? This month we're going to look at how to pull a collection and worksheet template into an event to quickly and easily use our themed collection to create an event!

👉 If you're not too familiar it Collections, check out this video: Designing with Collections

Using a Collection to Design-

Christmas is coming up fast so let's make a Christmas-themed event. In this example, we'll pull in a collection to our Design Board so we can easily access all of our themed items!

To add an entire collection of items to your Design Board follow these steps:

  • From the Gallery Home, click the 'Options' button at the bottom-center.
  • From the Options, pick 'Selection Mode'.
  • Select the Collection you want to use.
  • Click 'More' at the bottom center.
  • From the available options, click 'Add to Favorites'
Now you're ready to drag-and-drop these items wherever they are needed within your worksheet for this Holiday Party! (27)

Loading a Template-

Any worksheet can be saved as a template to re-use the entire event (recipes included)!

To load a saved template into an event, follow these steps:

  • Click the 'Options' button on the top-right corner of the Worksheet.
  • Click 'Load Template' and select your desired template.
  • Click 'Select Template'
  • Save to complete.

With a themed collection and a saved template, we've quickly and easily put together a Christmas Party in Details!

The Details Marketplace

Did you know Details has a marketplace where you can purchase professionally designed proposal themes? We do! If you need to mix things up a bit or keep a leg up on the competition, you should check them out!

Accessing the Marketplace
In the main menu, there's a link to the Marketplace. Select it and then click 'Details Add-ons' to get started. Here you'll find all of the proposal themes that are available for purchase - and be sure to check back regularly, because we may have limited offers available!

You can browse through and view examples of the themes in use by clicking directly on the images. Find one you just can't live without? Click the 'Add to Cart' button and then navigate to the cart to complete the purchase!

Accessing Purchased Themes
From the 'Proposal' page of any of your events, there's a drop-down in the top-left where you can choose any of your available themes! Select the one you want and get started editing it down below!

Updating Your Defaults

While it was important for you to create your default company settings when you became a Details Flowers customer, it's also just as important to update them as your company grows and the industry changes over time.

This is a perfect task to complete at the beginning of the year to ensure you start off the year fresh! Here are some of the main areas we recommend looking at:

Event Defaults
Your default Worksheet is a great place to start when making updates to your account. This is the Default Worksheet that will pull into each event you create. Having up-to-date sections, fees, and taxes will help save you time in the long run. (1)-Nov-22-2021-07-05-27-21-PM

Contract Terms

Your contract terms are among the most important areas to focus on when we talk about updating your account. Whether you are just starting out or have been doing this forever, your contract will help to safeguard your business.

The Financials section is where you will build out your default payment schedule, adjust your convenience fee, and house your 'Make checks Payable To' information. Ensuring this is up-to-date can save you from having to adjust the Financials page of each event later.
