Q: How does the Photo Module in Data Outlet work?
A: In Data Outlet you can search for photos using the Photo Module. This module shows the photos that were taken via Salesmapp or uploaded via Data Outlet. This way, the photos taken can be viewed per outlet.
1. Photos in Data Outlet
In Data Outlet photos can be found in several ways:
- On the company card of the outlet
- Through Extended Search
- In the module; Admin/Photo
1.1 Company card
One way to view the photos per outlet, is to go to the company card of the outlet. In the navigation menu on the left of the screen, the Photos option is shown. The photos are shown in different categories:
- Company photo
- Photo files (photos via Data Outlet)
Category “All” shows all pictures that are taken for that specific outlet. Please note: if there are no photos added for an outlet, this option is not shown in the navigation menu on the left.
In the screen that shows the photos there is an option at the right top of the screen to download the photos. This can be done as .zip or .pdf.
1.1.1 Download Zip
In case the photos are downloaded as .zip, all photos in that screen will be compressed and saved in a folder on your computer.
When opening this folder, all photos that belong to that folder will be shown.
1.1.2 Download as a .pdf document
Photos can also be downloaded as one .pdf document. The document can be saved by clicking on the SAVE icon in the bottom right of your screen. Here you can also zoom in on the photos.
1.2 Extended Search
Another way to search for photos is through extended search. The photos are unique to each customer number. A selection can be made based on unique customer numbers, and as a result, the photos belonging to that selection will be shown.
For example you can search by place of residence "Paris". You can then select "Photos" in the "next action droplist" at the bottom of the screen. This is the droplist that shows "Show on Screen" by default. After clicking "Next" you will see a list with all photos connected to the outlets that fit the search criteria. Above the photos the customer number, company name, street and place of residence are shown and under that the photo category. Inside the photo frame the date and time at which the photo were taken are shown at the bottom.
From this screen, there is also the opportunity to download the photos as .zip file or .pdf document.
Via the company card and extended search photos are visible based on customer number. In Admin/ Photos all photos that are taken Salesmapp and uploaded via Data Outlet are shown. In this screen all photos are shown.
