In this article, you'll find a list of our most impactful new features and enhancements that we have released this month.
Ziflow’s Adobe Creative Cloud Plugin: Support for Photoshop on Apple Silicon processors
If you’ve upgraded your hardware to an Apple computer with an M1 or M2 processor, you can now download and install Ziflow’s extension for Adobe Photoshop.
Previously only available on Apple computers with Intel processors, our plugin for Photoshop, like all of our Adobe Plugins, will allow you to share your assets for review and easily see feedback on those assets directly inside your preferred creative environment, on your desktop or laptop computer with an Apple Silicon processor.
New security settings in Ziflow’s Viewer
In this release, we've introduced an enhanced security feature that ensures access to the next proof for review and the ability to browse folders is granted exclusively to authenticated users.
Now both users logging in with their credentials and guest reviewers will now need to confirm their access via email authentication codes to view proofs within folders, or before accessing the next proof via the next proof to review modal.
These new settings can be turned off in Ziflow’s Admin panel, but will be activated by default starting today.
More updates to Ziflow’s Viewer: focus zoom on pointer, improved text selection behavior
With this release, we’ve introduced two additional updates to Ziflow’s Viewer. The first is a slight adjustment to how to get greater detail from an asset by using your mouse’s scroll-wheel to zoom in (or pinch-to-zoom on a trackpad). Starting today, Ziflow will use the location of your mouse pointer in an asset as the focal-point of the zoom, giving you greater precision while magnifying in the Viewer.
The second update improves how selected text is displayed in a comment when multiple individual text elements are highlighted. In the past, while marking up text in an asset, if a reviewer highlighted text to select it, and then highlighted a completely different text element, these two selections would appear on top of one another in the resulting comment. Starting today, Ziflow will automatically separate multiple text markups in a single comment with a line break to better demarcate the different suggested text edits.
Update to Ziflow’s Microsoft SharePoint integration: access and upload items at the “library” level
We’re excited to introduce a change to our Ziflow’s integration with Microsoft SharePoint: the ability to search within libraries (in addition to folders). The top level of file architecture within SharePoint is a “library”—for reference, the default library for most instances of SharePoint is called “Documents”. If your team has created additional libraries and nest folders and files within them, Ziflow can now access these other libraries via our automated workflows.
Simply by using the updated SharePoint Zibots, Ziflow can automatically search SharePoint libraries or folders for files, search SharePoint libraries for folders, create new folders in specified SharePoint libraries, and upload files to specified SharePoint libraries and folders.

Update to Ziflow’s integration with Slack: automatically identify team members via email address
With this release, we’ve added a new Zibot that automatically searches for a Slack user via the email address they use to access Ziflow, allowing you to set up automated workflows that will notify users when they’re specifically mentioned in review comments and more.
In the past, Ziflow administrators were able to create an automated workflow to send a Slack message to a user or channel that was specified in the workflow setup, with no way to make this process dynamic. With the addition of the “Obtain Slack user by email” Zibot, admins can create workflows that send a message to any user depending on the trigger, as long as the email they use to log in to Ziflow matches the email they use to login to Slack.
