Transferring ROES Packages to Pick-a-Pack Favorites

If you are a school, sports and event photographer, you should know that “my packages” are now called “favorites” in  our JD Pick-a-Pack order entry software. The steps below will move your old packages into “my favorites” in Pick-a-Pack.

Moving Packages into JDLab2You

These steps also moves My Packages from ROES to JDLab2you. However, if you open My Packages in JDLab2You and the program locks up, these files have been corrupted. The solution is to close JDLab2You and delete the 2 files you copied:

C:\Users\<your user name>\.JDLab2You\packages.xml

C:\Users\<your user name>\.JDLab2You\recordspackages.xml

When the program is restarted, they will be recreated automatically. You will then have to re-enter your favorites packages into JDLab2You manually.
