Interactive Content

The highlighted information on this page refers to functionality not yet generally available. It is available only in the Preview Sandbox environment.

Understanding Interactive Content

Interactive content provides multiple methods of engaging viewers. With advanced technology, including animated elements, applets, and streaming audio and video, your content can instantly interact with an audience. This allows agencies to access aggregated metrics and retrieve data on the success of their campaigns. 

Examples of interactive content:

  • Embedded or streaming videos
  • Banners that expand when you hover
  • Flash elements in static ads
  • HTML5 animations 
  • Applets (such as icons that allow you to share to social media)
  • Websites

Preparing an Interactive .zip Archive

Interactive content that you'd like to submit as a proof must be bundled in a .zip archive with the following specifications:

  • All assets, such as CSS, JavaScript, videos, sounds, and images should be included in the bundle file
  • Interactive content should include the main file (index.html, index.htm)
    If the main file is not placed in the root location, the tool automatically searches the folder to find the main file
    The main file does not need to be named index.html/index.htm, however, there can be only one .html/.htm file placed in the main location
  • The file must contain at least one static file webpage
  • Maximum bundle size is 500 MB
  • In the case of .zip files created in iOS, the tool automatically identifies the folder where the content is located
  • Interactive projects are supported only as .zip archives. Standard .zip file submissions will fail.
  • Must be a secure (HTTPS) website
    This is not a requirement when using the Desktop Proofing Viewer. For more information, see "Understanding the Desktop Proofing Viewer."
  • Must be allowed to be viewed in an iframe
    This is not a requirement when using the Desktop Proofing Viewer. For more information, see "Understanding the Desktop Proofing Viewer."

After you prepare your .zip bundle file, create a new proof.

For more information, see "Creating Proofs in Workfront Proof."

Creating an Interactive Proof

For information about creating an interactive proof, see "Generating a Proof for Interactive Content" in the article "Creating Proofs in Workfront Proof."

Depending on the proofing viewer you use (the Desktop Proofing Viewer or the Legacy Proofing Viewer), there are certain restrictions and capabilities to remember when creating an interactive proof. **Remove when Legacy viewer goes away

For more information, see "Understanding Differences between the Various Proofing Viewers."

Reviewing an Interactive Proof

You can review interactive proofs in all supported browsers using the Legacy viewer, or you can install and review in the Desktop Proofing Viewer.

Reviewing in the Legacy Viewer

The Legacy Viewer can be used in all supported browsers. Certain functions are not available in the Legacy viewer without the Workfront Proof Rich Media Review extension installed.

For more information, see "Proofing Interactive Content" in the article "Reviewing a Proof in the Legacy Proofing Viewer."

Reviewing in the Desktop Proofing Viewer

For more information, see "Reviewing an Interactive Proof in the Desktop Proofing Viewer."
