Using Actions on Comments in the Legacy Proofing Viewer

Using actions is a simple way to keep track of the results of each comment thread on a proof.

For example, you might set actions of "Ignore," "Make changes," "Request clarification," and "Completed" to keep track of where you are on each comment thread.

All account Administrators can enable. adjust, and create new actions in the Account settings --> Settings --> Actions tab. 

Once actions have been enabled, anyone with edit rights on a proof can set an action on a comment thread.

Please see Proof roles and Profiles and permissions for more information on who has edit rights on a proof).

NOTE Actions on comments are available on Select and Premium plans only.

To add an action to a comment:

  • Click the arrow to the right of the Save button (1)
  • Choose Save and set action (2)
  • Select the relevant action (3)
  • The action is added as a reply to the comment thread (4)

Comments can be filtered by action in the sidebar, so you can see which comments have been assigned which action. 

To find out more about filtering comments, please take a look at the Comments help page.

Setting up actions on comments is described in the Actions section of the Settings tab help page.

If you'd like to mark the comments as "Done" or "Actioned," read more about Resolving comments.
