Production: Production Order Setup

Production orders in Spectra Professional are used to record the orders you place with your labs and other vendors to fulfill your customer’s order. A single customer invoice may contain several production orders according to how many vendors are needed to fulfill the customer’s order.

Please note: Because we are continually updating our library of training videos as new versions of our software are released, this video will likely show an older or newer version of StudioPlus Spectra than you have installed. Don't worry! The video will still give you a great overview of this feature and the Help menu in Spectra always matches the version you have installed. You can easily print a single topic or chapter to use as notes.
