If necessary, you can add additional events to a job. For example, you can add a consultation, ordering session, or perhaps even a sub-shoot of the main job like an engagement session in the case of a wedding.

Furthermore, these individual events can have their own timelines in case you want to break down the event into sub-events.

Let's take a look at how to set these up. 

Just go to the Events tab on any job. When you add a new job into ShootQ, an event will be created by default. In this example, the main event on the job is the wedding itself. Some jobs may only have one event.

But you can add additional events by clicking the plus button in the job timeline either before or after the main event. You can then add the event's information like Location, Event Type, and Date/Time. You can also add notes to describe the event. This info will auto-save and be noted in the upper right.

NOTE: It's important to define the type of event because this can be used to filter events on the calendar and other areas of the website. Event Types can be created under the Settings tab.

If you delete an event it will be removed from the job timeline. 

Also, the information at the top of the job page is the same as the main event on the job timeline. So if you change the main event in the timeline, the job information will change as well.

You can add other events to the job in the same way. To edit an event, just click on it in the timeline.

Each event can have it's own timeline if necessary. This is helpful if the event will occur at different times on a particular day. For example, a wedding day might have different sub-events like Getting Ready, Wedding Ceremony, Family Formals, Cocktail Hour, Wedding Reception.

Just click on the event and scroll down to the timeline under the event info. Just like adding events to the job timeline, click the "plus" icon to add a sub-event to the event timeline. Give it a name and a time. Then repeat this process to add other sub-events. Here's an example of the timeline for the actual wedding day.

As you can see, you can organize your jobs as detailed as you want. Jobs can have events. And these events can have sub-events. It'll all be recorded on the job and event timelines.
