The Editing Service is available for all jobs with the job type School & Preschool. You can define the job type when you create a job, or later when you go to the Settings page of your job, click Actions on the top right and Edit Job Information. If you can't see the editing tab in your job, it's likely that you have selected another type of job, or a school event, just change the type to Preschool, Elementary, Middle School or High School.
If you have a sports or dance job, just change the job type to a school type.
What is the workflow for the knockout service?
1. You upload your JPGs (they need to be taken with either a green or a blue background) as usual to your job, sort them, check that every sequence of a subject is tagged correctly, then you activate the access codes, this last step is important, because the images of the QR cards need to be hidden, so that they should not be edited.
2. Open the Editing tab of your photo job and request the knockout service.
Once the job has been submitted, the screen display this status update:
If you need to cancel the request right after you have submitted it, please use the cancel button on the top right. If you change your mind later, please first reach out to support team so that we can check the status of the editing job.
3. Once the picture are ready to be reviewed, you will be notified by email.
4. Under the Editing tab, you can now review the extractions and either approve the images or disapprove and enter a complaint:

I use Foolography's Entagged devise to tag my pictures. Can I use the editing service and will my pictures still be tagged?
Yes, when you use our knockout service (handled by our partner 36pix), we can guarantee that the metadata remains saved within the files.
Important: If you do the knockouts through a different software, please test ahead of your shoot if the stored tagging information is still saved in your metadata (for Canon cameras, the info is stored in the copyright field, for Nikon it's in the user comment field).
