New Ziflow Dashboard 2.0: Ready to Upgrade Your User Experience?

Discover the key differences between the old experience and the new Dashboard 2.0

Updated over a week ago

We're excited to present the revamped Ziflow Dashboard 2.0, designed to refine and streamline your workflow. Enriched with cutting-edge features and an intuitive interface, this new dashboard elevates your Ziflow experience, making every interaction simpler and more efficient. In this article, we'll underline the key enhancements compared to the previous version and articulate the benefits of transitioning to this updated platform for all Ziflow users.

We wanted to inform you of an important change we have implemented in Ziflow. We have decided to replace the term Proof with Review when naming Ziflow projects.

Our dashboard now uses the term Review to align with industry standards and promote ease of understanding for users from various fields. This acknowledges the collaborative nature of the online proofing process and caters to a broader audience, including marketers, project managers, and content creators. This change reflects our dedication to improving your user experience and maintaining Ziflow's position as a top solution in the online proofing industry.

Dashboard 2.0: What's new

Navigating the Dashboard 2.0

The new dashboard boasts a modern, refreshed interface that maximizes user productivity. Enjoy a clean and organized workspace, enabling you to focus on what matters most. The intuitive design eliminates unnecessary clutter and provides a visually appealing environment that helps you stay on top of your reviews.

Our new left-to-right layout facilitates easy navigation between the critical sections of Ziflow, making it more user-friendly.

Navigating the Dashboard 2.0
  1. Proof list - your starting point when using Ziflow. This is where you will create, manage, and organize your reviews.

  2. Connect - connect your favorite tools and apps with Ziflow Connect, our one-click and low-code integrations suite. Automatically create new reviews from file and asset storage platforms, sync review and approval with project management tools, and work directly inside Adobe CS and other creative tools.

  3. People - Ziflow's People interface is the user management center that enables admins to invite new users and guests into Ziflow. From here, they can easily edit user roles, create review groups and perform all necessary actions related to user management.

  4. Insights - monitoring a team's productivity over time is crucial for predicting possible bottlenecks, forecasting trends, and effectively managing workload and review processes - especially when projects involve multiple collaborators and many layers of review and approval.

  5. Quick add - depending on the user permissions, allows adding objects such as reviews, folders, workflow templates, intake forms, flows, users, contacts, or lite users.

  6. Global Search - search for reviews from any page within your Ziflow account. You can enter a word or a phrase, and Ziflow will search through all the fields, reviewers, custom properties, etc., of the latest review versions and display those results.

  7. Profile details and account settings - this is where a user can manage profile and account settings. The options listed under each user avatar will vary depending on the user's role assigned by the account admin.

Dashboard 2.0: Improving Information Visibility & Review Creation

The new experience offers improved visibility into critical information, helping you make decisions quickly and easily.

You have the option to choose from three different views to display your reviews. The first is the Grid view, which offers limited review details but presents them more visually. The second is the List view, which provides a comprehensive overview of each review and allows you to check through many of them on a single page quickly. Finally, there is the Expanded view, which displays the complete workflow of each review in a list format.

Switching between different Dashboard 2.0 layouts

As a user, you can adjust the folder panel's width or even hide it completely. This can help you maximize your workspace as you need it.

  4. Integrations - set up synchronization between Ziflow reviews and items in your connected applications.

  5. Properties - custom fields/properties that allow you to zero-in on a subset of your review library according to your preferred business and/or process views. Read more about properties in the following article.
