What if someone is taking too long to give you feedback? We have that covered with nudging and skipping – an action you as the owner of the proof, or if you’ve been given an inviter role in the workflow, can take.
A nudge will send the proofer an email reminding them there’s a proof waiting for them to look at. Kind of like a tap on the shoulder to say “remember my proof?”.
For those proofers marked as mandatory, if you choose to skip them so that the proof can continue through the workflow, this is a bit like bypassing them so the next group of proofers can begin proofing. They’ll be notified by email they’ve been skipped and they still have their red pen to add comments to the proof until it’s locked by an approver.
Everyone on a proof will get a red pen to add comments, but let’s look at the different roles for proofers: reviewers, mandatory reviewers, gatekeepers and the final approver.
