GoProof Attachments

This article is intended to assist you in how to use attachments within GoProof

When you’re working on a design and you need a replacement image for example, what do you do? You can ask for it on email, if the file is small enough. Or wait for it to be shared via Dropbox or other file transfer product.

Either way, it takes collaborators out of GoProof and creates a separate trail which can’t be seen in the review audit. GoProof lets you add attachments directly to the comments you make on a proof.

Just think how easy it’s going to be to share and receive assets like:

  • New logos from clients
  • Fresh image ideas from collaborators
  • Correct res images to replace poor ones
  • PDF briefs and project instructions
  • Adobe CC templates
  • Copy passages and spread sheet data

The file quantity, file types and file sizes are only restricted if your GoProof package limits it. Files are available to download, so you can comment on them within the review itself.
