zookiepro System Updates

Recent system upgrades include enhanced visibility of revisions. Previously, once revision requests were forwarded on to the design team at Zookbinders, the photographers would not be able to view revision requests again.

With our most recent upgrade package, there is new visibility for all historical revision requests. You can find them by clicking on the order ID number. This delivers a page that has many useful pieces of information about the order; an uploader, should you need to deliver additional images to our designers; and now a link to view all revisions. Revision history includes all comments, the dates submitted and a thumbnail of the most recent page spread.
