Project Plan View

Project Plan view is a useful way to check the overall status of your project. Get a consolidated view of all your proofs within the project. Project plan view also offers useful tools to filter, organize, search, and annotate at project level. 

When you enter the project plan view, a thumbnail view of all proofs in your selected project will be displayed, and the page status is indicated by the border around the thumbnail, e.g., green border for approved, red for rejected, etc. The user can switch off the page preview and only display the proof status color if desired.  The thumbnail can also be increased or decreased in size using the slider bar, as shown below. 

Proof color-status:
Users can filter on the status of proofs:

  • Green - Proof has been approved 
  • Red - Proof has been rejected
  • Orange - Proof contains an annotation, comment, or note
  • Grey - Proof has no annotations, comments, or notes
  • Blue - Changed - When a new version has been uploaded, any proofs that changed between revisions are highlighted with a blue border and a "Changed" flag on the thumbnail itself
  • Tag - this filter option will not become visible until at least one Proof Tag has been added to a proof.

Section View:
If you want to display your proofs in unique groups, relevant to your display requirements, this is possible in numerous ways by:

  • Manually moving the proofs into sections
  • Using Trigger and Actions to automate the section assignment based on rules
  • Using a file naming convention to determine the section 
  • Using the API

Now you can easily filter your sections in project plan view. The sections will also get displayed in the project dashboard and the print/download PDF window where you can also filter them. 

The video above illustrates filtering the project plan view based on sections that get defined in numerous ways

Apply proof instruction:
Select any proof(s) in project plan view and apply "page instructions". Page instructions are great if you want to add a general page instruction such as; "add a new logo" or "use style guide for layout instructions." The comment is not specific to any part of the proof; it is a general instruction. Once applied, the proof instruction will get displayed in the proof comments tray highlighted in blue.

Search for text content:
Full-Text & Content Search is a fantastic feature that enables you to find text content within your proofs. Not only can you find text content, but you can apply annotations from within the search results itself.

Aproove or Reject:
If desired, users can approve or reject proofs directly from project plan view. Click on "select proofs," then select any proofs you want to approve or reject. If you do not want users to have this ability, it can get switched off per user or group. 

Invite to Project Plan:
Invite users directly to project plan view as part of a workflow step or instant share, to share the progression of a project.
