Firstly you need to know how you would like your customers to choose templates. There are currently 2 options we offer. 


Option 1 is using your own templates. You can do this through the BoothBook template chooser. 

Option 2 is using an external photobooth template chooser such as Photo Booth Talk or PhotoboothTemplates.com, this is as simple as copying your code. 

 

Option 1  

  1. Have your templates ready to upload
  2. Go to Assets (camera) icon >Template Groups
  3. Click Add New Template Group , add a Title, this can be "Mirror, Enclosed" etc or "Weddings, Parties" etc OR "Postcard, Strips, Square" etc. Click Save.
  4. Repeat step 2 until you have all the groups you need.
  5. Go to Assets >Templates and click Add a new Template
  6. Drag the Template file in to the Template Image upload box
  7. Give the Template a Title / ID
  8. Select the Template Group/s they apply to
  9. Create Search Terms for each template, these should be separated by a comma. These could be more descriptive, something that a customer might search for eg. balloons.
  10. Go to your Assets > Extras, add or edit an applicable extra eg. Custom Prints 4x6, and select the check box to Enable Template Chooser.
  11. As soon as you are ready to have customers use your template chooser, go to Configuration (cog) icon > Global Settings and scroll down to Template Chooser. 
  12. Select BoothBook Template Chooser and tick Enable client portal template chooser link, then click Save Configuration.


Option 2

  1. Go to your Assets > Extras, add or edit an applicable extra eg. Custom Prints 4x6, and select the check box to Enable Template Chooser.
  2. When you are ready to have customers use your template chooser, go to Configuration (cog) icon > Global Settings and scroll down to Template Chooser. 
  3. Select External Template Chooser and tick Enable client portal template chooser link
  4. Copy your widget code from your external provider and paste it into the External Widget Code field. 
  5. Click Save Configuration.


TOP TIP! - Create a scheduled notification in Configuration > Scheduled Notifications. Set it to send an Email at a set time before the Event Date. Add the condition that Booking DOES contain the applicable Referenced Booking Item. Then create an email using the available variables, sending the customer a link to their portal to select a template.


How it Works

When the customer accesses their client portal, they have a link to select their template.
