However you have come into the Production system, the first thing you will want to do is to create a new title. This can be accomplished by clicking on the Production Module and then selecting Pre-Production.
This will bring to you a screen that will either have a list of titles in various stages of the editorial workflow, or a blank screen if none are yet there.
Click on Create new at the top of the screen (as per screen shot below):
This will bring up a new screen with data fields that require completing, and if you are using the progressive workflow module, it will ask which type of workflow you wish to use. For more information on workflows, please see our workflow section in this documentation.
With workflows activated, you will see the following screen (if you do not, then you will just see the create screen and you can ignore this part of the documentation):
Select the workflow you wish to implement and it will create the necessary steps and approval procedures.
From there you will need to fill in the necessary data fields on the screen. The minimum you will need to add initially is:
Full Title: This does not need to be the final title of the work, as there are plenty of opportunities to change this later on.
Language: The primary language of the work.
Source: This allows you to filter and report on the different channels that each new title comes through to your company. The options are: Idea, Acquisition, Proposal, Submission or Translation.
Your user name will automatically be entered into the Receiver / Proposer field. It is possible to change this if you need to assign it to someone else in the organisation.
Once you have done this, click on Create at the bottom of the screen and the record will be saved.
This will also add the necessary tabs to your record. Then you will be able to edit the new record.
