Duplicate Proofs

Use this option to rerun the proof or make some changes to the workflow.

Updated over a week ago

Summary: Ziflow users can duplicate a proof or a new version. This feature is helpful when proof creators want to rerun the proof or make some changes.

This article outlines how described functionality appears and operates in the old layout. If you are using Dashboard 2.0, please refer to the corresponding article in the Help Center.

Available: on all editions. This feature can be used by account admins or proof owners/reviewers with manage rights.

Where is the feature setup? Click on the Duplicate Proof icon in the Proof Details screen.

How does it work?

You will be redirected to the proof creation screen. It will be pre-filled with all the proof details (file, reviewers, stage configuration, etc.). You can adjust any of the settings at this time.

At the top of the proof creation screen, there are two new options:

  1. Duplicate as version - This option will duplicate the proof as a new version. For example, if you would like to duplicate V1 of your proof, select this option, and V2 will be added. If this checkmark is not set, a new proof will be created instead of a new version.

  2. Duplicate comment - By selecting this option, you can decide if comments from the original proof should be duplicated to the new proof/version.

Duplicate proof settings in Ziflow

When you’re done with the duplicate configuration, click on the “Duplicate” button at the bottom of the proof creation screen, and a new proof/version will be created. Notification emails will be sent to reviewers.

Additional information:

  • The whole proof will be unarchived when duplicating an archived proof as a version. When duplicating an archived proof as new proof, the old proof will remain archived, and the new one will be unarchived.

  • When you remove a file from the set of combined files or change the order of the files, you will not be able to duplicate comments. Adding a file will not disable the Duplicate comments option.
