Course Audience

This course is for those who will serve as the administrators of their studio's Creative Force account. As an admin, you’ll be responsible for working with members of the Creative Force team to get your account configured to the needs of your studio as well as integrating Creative Force into your creative operations. You will also have full access permissions in your Creative Force account, making you the primary contact point within your studio to update style guides, workflows, personnel information, and locations, or make any other changes to your account.


As a Creative Force Admin, you’ll be one of the primary drivers bringing that new way of working to your studio.

That process requires taking your current, physical creative operations and translating them into a digital version inside Creative Force. This is actually a healthy exercise because it forces you and your teams to ask fundamental questions about your ways of working and why you do the things you do.

This course will walk you through part of that process. As you advance through the course, you will simultaneously be building out your Creative Force account. As part of this course, you’ll be required to do the following:

  • Configure your general workflow settings to determine how your assets will be produced
  • Set your Photography workflow settings to define how your assets will be selected and reviewed (and by whom!)
  • Set your Post-Production workflow settings to determine who will handle the Post-Production of your assets
  • Configure your Asset delivery to tell Creative Force the final destination of your assets

At the end of the course, you’ll have your workflows built to direct Creative Force to where and to whom to send your assets at different stages of the creative production process.
