Looming deadlines:
Making sure proofs come back on time

What if someone is taking too long to give you feedback? We have that covered with automatic reminders, nudging and skipping.

In the proof’s info pane, the workflow shows where the proof is up to, and who’s finished reviewing (and who hasn’t).In the proof’s info pane, the workflow shows where the proof is up to, and who’s finished reviewing (and who hasn’t).

Automatic Reminders

When you create a proof, you can set an automatic reminder to occur either a number of hours, or days, before the proof deadline. A friendly notification is sent out automatically to those reviewers who haven’t finished reviewing the proof – without you having to lift a finger.

Nudging

A nudge will send the reviewer 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?”.

Skipping

For those reviewers 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 reviewers 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 the proof is returned to the owner with a to-do list, or a final approval.

PageProof’s reporting will give you valuable insights if any bottlenecks are occurring across your organization’s proofs.
