Product Release: February 2019

28 February 2019

This month's product enhancements include the ability to label & resolve comments (also known as actions on comments), search for text in a proof, export proofs to CSV and many more.

 

Label & Resolve Comments

Today’s release includes two new features related to comments.

Labels on comments allow you to define any number of labels that suit your workflow or internal processes. You can then label comments for action by your design team. Managers and reviewers can also filter comments based on their label.

Label comments

Resolving comments can be used to lock & mark comments as complete once they’ve been actioned. Comments can also be filtered based on their resolution status allowing you to quickly see which comments still need to be actioned.

Resolve comments

Granular permissions can be applied to both features so that you can determine who is allowed to label or resolve comments.

 

Search Text in Proofs

With our new text search feature, you can now quickly find specific words or phrases in documents or designs. This can be extremely helpful when you’re dealing with text-heavy documents and you need to confirm that the necessary disclaimers or footers are in place, or to identify potential repeated misspellings of words.

For the marketing ops and business analyst members of the marketing team, we've also made it easier to export your online proofing activity for analysis in BI or data visualization tools.

Export Your Online Proofing Data to CSV

Now it's easier to quantify and measure the work being done in Ziflow. With Ziflow's Export to CSV capability, you can now import your online proofing data (proof creations, comments, version histories, decisions, etc.) into your preferred business intelligence or data visualization tools to report on your ROI from Ziflow. This is great for generating insights on your review and approval workflow performance and additionally act as another audit-readiness benefit.

Duplicate Proof Version

With the “Duplicate Proof” feature, you can now duplicate a proof (or version) including all the proof’s settings, workflow, custom properties and comments. This is useful if the same proof needs to be reviewed again.

Not only can you duplicate an existing proof, but you’re also able to insert new pages when doing so. Up until now, you had to create a new version of that proof, insert the missing pages and restart the review and approval workflow. With the new duplicate proof feature, proof managers are able to update the incorrect proof with the additional pages, while still retaining all the comments.

More Enhancements

We've improved a few areas throughout the application, including;

  • Branding - Page Title: A new branding capability which allows administrators to change the page title from “Ziflow” throughout the application.
  • Filter proofs by version: A new filter allowing you to filter proofs by their version number.
  • Sticky proof bulk actions: The bulk actions menu which appears when checking one or more proofs will remain in view while scrolling through proofs.
