In this article, you'll find a list of our most impactful new features and enhancements that we have released this month.
Increased controls over who can be @mentioned within a proof
With this release, admins can now specify the subsets of users that can be mentioned by one of your users on a proof. This updated setting gives system administrators greater control over who can be mentioned within proof comments in Ziflow. The options include:
Only reviewers on a stage
Only reviewers on a proof
All contacts in the organization
All licensed users in the organization
This update addresses a potential security concern, where a guest reviewer or someone from outside the organization could be inadvertently added to a proof. Now, administrators can ensure that only users from within their organization are mentioned on a proof, reducing the risk of unauthorized access to sensitive information.
Show video subtitles on thumbnails when comments are exported to PDF
In this week’s release, subtitles on videos can now be displayed alongside relevant thumbnails when comments are exported to PDF.
For teams who make comments on a video’s subtitles a part of their review and approval process, it’s essential to see that feedback when it’s exported to PDF. With this update, the exported PDF will display the thumbnail screenshot along with the subtitles, ensuring both internal transparency and that brands compliance needs are met.
Each asset in a Merged Rich Media proof now includes file name and resolution
We’ve made a small but important change to the way individual assets are displayed within a Merged Rich Media proof inside Ziflow’s Proof Viewer. With this release, each asset will be displayed as normal, but with the addition of the individual file name and the file’s resolution (in pixels) beneath the asset in gray text.
Context is important during the course of a batch proof review, and this update will give commenters a better understanding as to the specific file they’re sharing feedback on, with the resolution helping orient reviewers as to the relative size of the asset.
Updates to Asana integration: More metadata, immediate actions post-connection
The original design of Ziflow’s Asana app made it difficult for users to perform additional actions immediately after connecting a proof to a task. With this release, we’ve extended the Proof Updated trigger in our SDK to start a flow nearly instantaneously after a proof has been associated with an Asana task, eliminating what was once a frustrating user experience.
In a separate but related update, the ability to view additional proof metadata has been added to the widget in an Asana task, by enabling the Public URL to be sent through via the SDK. This will help users see more relevant information about the proof within the Asana task itself.
