The ELEMENTICE™ Platform is built to help you in as many situations as possible. When you have a quiet period in one type of photography, we want you to be able to use the ELEMENTICE™ Platform to help you win and complete work in a different area. After working with numerous photographers across different photography sectors, we've built up a long list of features, but you need a central base where you can turn those features on or off, depending on how you want to use your ELEMENTICE™ devices on any given day...
The ELEMENTICE™ Console is the control room of the ELEMENTICE™ platform. Basically, if we can do it, you can turn it on or off in the Console. The Console is a (mainly) mobile friendly web page, accessible from any computer, laptop or smartphone device, as you would access any other web page.
When logged into console.elementice.com you can monitor and configure:
All of your ELEMENTICE™ devices - like Walkers, Readers, Booths and Printers.
How your customers and clients see/interact with the galleries you create - including things like branding, messaging and free or paid downloads/prints.
How ELEMENTICE™ will work with other integrations including payment services (like Stripe), E-Commerce (like FotoMerchant) or file management (like Dropbox).
Logging in for the first time
This first video will show how to log in to console.elementice.com for the first time. Then we'll show you how to change some basic settings you can change from the Console.
Shooting Modes & other Device Settings
Shooting modes are one of the Device settings available for each device. To reach the Device Settings section of the Console...
With your Walker turned on, open the ELEMENTICE console and click on "Devices" tab on the top banner of the Console and select the relevant Walker.
You are now on the Device Page and can access the Device Settings section at the bottom of the page. Shooting Mode is a configurable setting under Device Settings. You can choose between 'Photo First' and 'Scan First'. You need to click the tick before the setting will be saved.
As you can see, there are many other settings which can be adjusted from this page too (including device allocation which you'll see in a minute). Once you're done with the Getting Started guide, be sure to check out the Knowledge Base for more info on all of those.
Creating Events & Device Allocation
While looking at the Device Settings for your new Walker, you may notice that the Event it is allocated to/sending images to, is called "First test event". Here is a quick guide to creating your own events and allocating devices so that images end up in the right place...
And once you've created your first event, you'll need to assign your Walker so that it sends images to the correct Event...
