Flatplan

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

Thumbnails:
When you enter the flatplan 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 the proofs

  • Grey Status - Proof has no annotations, comments or notes
  • Green Status - Proof has been approved 
  • Gold Status - Proof contains an annotation, comment or note
  • Red - Proof has been rejected
  • Blue - Changed - When a new version is uploaded any proofs that changed between revisions are highlighted with a blue border and a changed flag on the thumbnail itself

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 on your sections in the flatplan. The sections will also get displayed in the project dashboard and the print/download PDF window where you can also filter them.

Apply proof instruction:
Select any proof/s in the flatplan 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 the flatplan area. 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 Flatplan:
Invite users directly to the flatplan as part of a workflow step or instant share, to share the progression of a project.
