To get the best use out of Stylezone, you should understand the key definitions, and how the platform is structured.
Top Level Structure
The top level structure of Stylezone consists of the brand and users.
The brand - your company setting up in Stylezone - is at the top of the structure.
Each brand can add users.
Each user must be one of the following:
For more information, refer to User Roles.
Once a brand is setup in Stylezone with users, it may then create the internal structure to suit its needs. Such a structure includes the following:
A group is made up of two or more users who are the audience for shared styles.
For example, a group might include a designer, technical designer, merchandiser, and product developer who work together on a line of activewear for women for Brand XYZ. The group is called Women's Activewear Team. Brand XYZ may have other groups, such as Women’s Lifestyle Team, Women’s Swimwear Team, Women’s Dresses Team, and so on.
A group may be one of the following:
For more information, see Group Types.
Each group may have:
In addition, public groups, may have anonymous users.
For more information, see Group Roles.
A board is a way of organizing styles within a group. You can assign styles uploaded from VStitcher and Lotta to specific boards, allowing you to organize, present, and share these to suit your needs. Each group may have one or more boards.
Continuing the Women's Activewear Team example, that group might have boards such as Spring 2018, Fall 2018, and Holiday 2018 Special Collection. Brand XYZ uploads each style to the appropriate board, helping ensure that discussion and comment about each style is in the relevant board, making it easier to monitor, review, and manage communications, and make faster, more informed decisions.
An essential part of the Stylezone structure! You can upload styles to Stylezone from VStitcher or Lotta.
The following image, when expanded, shows an example of a simple Stylezone structure for a brand.
The brand has a number of users. Each user has their own personal zone to which they can load styles. The brand has created certain groups. Some of the users are in some groups, and not others. Within each group, there are boards. The users in each group can see all of the boards, and all the styles in each board. There is one Chat group.
