Notification Information

Notifications for Scopists

Stenovate specifically notifies scopists on *your* CAT software that you're seeking help.

Notifications for Proofreaders

When you create a post in the Proofing Job Board, ALL proofreaders are notified, so be sure to specify whether you're seeing a PDF or CAT software proofreader.

Scopists or proofreaders who are available and interested in assisting you can respond directly to the job post or private message you via the built-in chat tool in the bottom right corner of the screen.

Notifications to Reporters

When scopists or proofreaders respond, you'll be notified via email as well as within the Stenovate platform.

Web application notifications are found at the top right corner by pressing the Notification Icon (Bell).

Once you have a response (or multiple), you can easily vet scopists and proofreaders by viewing their profile, which includes ratings & reviews. Most scopists and proofreaders also upload a rate sheet directly to their profiles. Learn more about Ratings & Reviews here.
