In this article, you'll find a list of our most impactful new features and enhancements that we have released this month.
Easily compare proofs from within other folders
With this release, we’ve expanded folder navigation to make it easier to access and compare a proof with any other proof that you have permission to view within your company’s workspace.
Compare mode in Ziflow’s Proof Viewer makes it easy to review and offer feedback on an asset juxtaposed against another proof within that same folder. Our expanded navigation makes this feature even better: simply click the “folder” button and browse through your team’s folder structure to select any proof you might be looking for—not just those within the same project. For example, companies often house their brand guidelines in a dedicated folder within Ziflow. This feature allows teams to easily compare active proofs directly alongside those established sets of creative requirements.
This feature is also perfect for when specific feedback from a previous project would be relevant to a proof you’re reviewing today: enter Compare mode, open an earlier proof from your company’s set of folders, and select the “Copy Comment” option to add it into the current asset—all without leaving the Ziflow Proof Viewer window.
Improvements to Proof Viewer: Updated “Share” button, New Comment filter
The “Share” button in Ziflow’s Proof Viewer has been updated to make it easier to share the public link to a proof with collaborators and stakeholders. In the past, reviewers would navigate to the “Proof details” modal within a proof to access and copy the public URL. With this release, the “Share” button now features “Copy Public URL” as a new option, in addition to the existing “Share proof” flow to bring stakeholders into the review stage via normal means.
We’ve also updated the Comments filter in the Proof Viewer to allow you to more easily drill down into feedback marked “Public.” In the past, the only options to filter comments were to view only “Private” feedback or the entire set of comments on the proof (“All”). This update adds the selection “Public,” helping you more easily remove Private comments from your view.
API: Return comment values as plain text, toggle to turn off stage summary when exporting PDF.
We’ve made a few exciting adjustments to Ziflow’s developer API in this week’s release. First, you can now use an API call to create proofs with multiple rich media assets in the same view—exciting functionality that was formerly only available through Ziflow’s native interface.
In addition, we’ve adjusted the behavior by which you can add comments to Batch Review proofs via the API. In the past, comments added via API to Batch Review proofs would be left on the first asset in the batch. With this update, a comment API “post” call can now include the asset ID, allowing for more precise commenting on specific visuals within a Batch Review proof.
