Using @mentions When Commenting on Proof in Legacy Proof Viewer

    Summary: @mentions are an easy way to draw someone's attention to a conversation or message.

    Available for: Any reviewer with "comment" permissions on all Ziflow editions.

    Where is the feature accessible? @mentions can be used when typing comments or replies within the proof viewer.

    How does it work?

    Once you begin typing the @ symbol, a dropdown menu will appear with a list of all the reviewers within that stage. Select the reviewer and hit "enter" to confirm your selection.

    What happens after @mentions are used in a comment/reply?

    Once a reviewer uses @mentions to draw another reviewer's attention, Ziflow sends an email containing comment/reply text and proof details.

    How can reviewers be allowed to @mention anyone on a proof? 

    If you want to let reviewers @mention all reviewers on the proof regardless of what stage they are in, the Ziflow admin must enable this setting in the "Settings" panel:

    Can I allow all contacts to be mentioned?

    Yes, there is a special account setting that allows all contacts to be listed when using mentions. It is located under Settings -> Proofing Settings -> General.

    Available for: users on our Business and Enterprise plans. 

    Additional information:

    • If the comment is edited, all @mentioned reviewers will receive an email.
