How do you review a proof in Approval Manager or Workgroups DaVinci?

Let's learn how:

  • To begin, you'll receive an email that will look like this. Click the "Review" button on the right of the email


  • You can log into the Approval Manager or Workgroups DaVinci Web Portal

  • Go to your "Proofs" tab

  • Open the "Review" folder

  • and click the "Review" button to the right of the proof there

  • Once you click the "Review" button in your email, or the web portal, the proofer will open.

  • You will be able to see a rendering of the proof file and can user several tools on the top tool bar to inspect the proof, make or review comments, and ultimately make a decision (Approve/Reject) on the file.

You can explore these tools on your own, or continue reading for a more detailed description.
