Kommentare: Overall, we've found our work flow has become more efficient since integrating GoProof. Designers find they can move through edits quicker with more clarity and project managers feel more in control of the review process. All updates to the program that have been released are helpful and add even more features. I'm looking forward to see what is coming next!

Vorteile: The integration between my Adobe programs and GoProof is extremely helpful. It's easier to move through changes and send new drafts because GoProof is right within my program.
I like the fact that we can have four paid users, but anyone can interact with GoProof without needing a login or paid account. It's allowed us to quickly incorrporate GoProof into our daily work flow for the entire company, no huge training sessions or learning curves.
The collaborators and history tabs put control in the project manager's hands for adding reviewers and vetting all comments. Our designers are not relied upon for moving projects to all reviewers any longer. We're finding projects move much faster.
I love that you can set deadlines for each draft and "nudge" a reviewer if they haven't completed their review.
I love that we can retain our proofs within the system once it's signed-off. I've occasionally had to revisit a comment on a proof after the printing of a project. That security is invaluable.

Nachteile: The address book isn't shared so email addresses sometimes have to be retyped even if they have been on other reviews. After a year of working, the system has populated more thoroughly but the begin was frustrating.
There are a lot of nice features that I had to find on my own just from using GoProof, like the ability to put a proof back into review.
In-house design teams may find the project structure confusing. Since we don't have clients, we needed to find a way to match GoProof's team and project nesting to our company structure.
There are weird UX frustrations. For example, when in a proof window, you have to click an X in the top right corner to return to the dashboard screen. Why not just a return link?
The "insights" screen seems to only be helpful if you take it upon yourself to track time. I would love for this to have more data about time spent in proofs, number of comments a day, average time to complete a proof, etc.
As the admin, I'd like to see on my dashboard an activity breakdown by user and by team/client. My dashboard isn't very helpful and isn't customizable to my needs.
The mobile experience is VERY poor. A user shouldn't have to sign in on mobile if they don't have to sign in via desktop. Because it's so uncomfortable to use, all reviewers will only use a computer to view a proof, making the flexibility of GoProof not as great as I had though when the purchase was made.

Kommentare: Does what its supposed to do great ... proofing is easy and convenient. Fix these issues, and it would be the best piece of software I pay for ... I would give it 10 stars and would recommend it to anyone who would listen.

Vorteile: It is very easy to use, it makes the approval process quick and easy. The software team continues to update it regularly. Clients tend to understand the software quickly and use a good number of the available features.

Nachteile: I have two complaints with this software (which I have brought up to their team multiple times and has yet to be fixed). First, is that you need to make a comment in order to unlock the request for changes. I have a lot of clients who just email me changes instead of putting them in through the software, so I have to go in and put some random comment like "changes needed" just so I can then request changes to the proof. Second and more annoying to me, is that you need to request changes in the first place, you should just be able to upload a new version by pressing upload new version and just bypassing the need for comments and change requested to be pressed. Both of these issues also email the client at every step, so the client receives at least two extra emails that could be prevented, and the first email which just says that changes have been requested sometimes confuses the client and they email me right away asking why I just resent them their old version ... which then prompts another unnecessary email where I have to explain that its just an email requesting changes. If they could fix these two problems, then the software would be perfect.

Kommentare: I really like GoProof, but I think there are a few things that could be different to make it optimal. In my case, my customers are my graphic design clients— so the people using GoProof with me are lawyers, chefs, eye doctors, etc... They find the software intimidating at first. I think there may be ways to make the interface more appealing and more intuitive (for example, I can tell them to "SIGN OFF" a million times, and they will click "FINISHED" or "COMPLETED"). Then from our end, I think some features should be more easily available— for example, Archive. It should be a main link on the dashboard to go right to archiving projects, also, a mass-archive feature.

Vorteile: • Get reviews from clients in the proof.
• I think the annotation tools are robust.
• When customers get use to using it, they like it.
• I like that it allows customers to issue an "official" approval or rejection.

Nachteile: • Too many pages/tabs to do one thing.
• Interface views look confusing (I with there was a small preview in "list view"
• I don't know what it is, but ALL of my customers reply to the proof email with feedback (which we have as a DO NOT REPLY). I think customers find the software intimidating, and I don't know how to make them feel more comfortable using it.
• The difference between "SIGN OFF" "COMPLETED" and "FINISHED" throws off customers. There should be a way to toggle this off, so "SIGN OFF" is the only option.
• The steps to "archive" projects should be easier. I dislike having to click through 3+ pages to do a task that should be easily available from the dashboard (maybe just a mass-archive button)

Kommentare: The ease of use for everyone who touches GoProof is a huge benefit. Also, we're making fewer errors, if there's a comment, it's easy for us to see what's been addressed and what has not.

Vorteile: I love that our creators can push their work directly from the Creative Cloud software to their reviewers and access their proofs in the software, no need to toggle to a different program to read the needed changes. Our reviewers love the easy commenting tools and that they can review projects where ever they are.

Nachteile: For big files, publishing the proof can lag. Sometimes, my users wonder if it stalled, but if they're patient, it always goes through.

Kommentare: I really do enjoy using GoProof and it has made our proofing and editing experience with our clients much more efficient then emailing back and fourth.

Vorteile: I really love that it works right in our Indesign, other competitors we have looked at make you upload your proofs to an online platform every time. I also like that you can send reminders, and it's super helpful that Clients are able to attach documents, photos, etc. to their edits.

Nachteile: The app doesn't always show the Client the most up to date version of the proof. We aren't always made aware if there is a glitch in the program and the proof doesn't get sent through. There is no way for us to edit a Clients email address, the resolution we found for this is to edit the client and re-add them, this isn't the easiest resolution.

Kommentare: Overall very pleased with the product. Wish it had more customizations but I understand this is still a small company and hopefully those will happen later.

Vorteile: How easy it is to send clients design proofs without the extra emails in between. All comments and revisions are handled directly in InDesign.

Nachteile: It loads slowly - and sometimes you have to restart the Extension within your programs.

Kommentare: Time is the biggest benefit I've found with GoProof. I'm not wasting time on the phone with customers trying to understand what they want. With this proofing system I'm able to see exactly what they want, where they want it and can quickly make those edits and return a proof in record time.

Vorteile: My customers love how quick GoProof makes the proofing process. We've saved time and money by using this product. Before using GoProof we would spend a lot of time on the phone discussing changes and explaining where the changes needed to be made. With GoProof, it's a quick easy process and I can see exactly what changes they want made and where to make them.

Nachteile: It seems to be a bit glitchy when I'm moving between my desktop and laptop. If I've already sent a proof from my desktop, and then I leave the office and changes come back that need to be made, if I make the changes on my laptop and resend the proof....it confuses GoProof. Also, a huge let down was the fact that I can't get push-notifications on my cellphone through the app. Despite customer service trying to help me....it wouldn't work. The best they could tell me was that it "should be working"

Kommentare: I've thoroughly enjoyed working with this software. I love being able to access it from anywhere. Even some of my less than technologically advanced co-workers have been able to grasp how to use it. its been a lifesaver.

Vorteile: Easy to upload and share with team members.
Love the integration app for all the different adobe software I use.
How Easy it is to create new notes and share them with the whole team or with specific team members.

Nachteile: No way to check off changes as you are making them. If a coworker makes suggestions, there is no way to mark a comment as done. The only way to mark it as done is after the changes have been made and you have uploaded a new file. Then you can mark the previous version comment as done.
The interface can be a bit clunky at times.
Some times it logs me in as someone else in my company and I have to log out and log back in to get back to my view.

Thanks Steven, glad you love the Adobe integration! The great news is you can check off changes as you do them right inside the Adobe extension. Here's how you do it https://www.goproof.net/adobe-creative-cloud-designers-can-mark-requested-changes-as-done-or-not-done-and-give-reasons-why/

Kommentare: Great product, does what it promises, is easy to implement and use, intuitive interface for proofers and Indesign users. We had a few hiccups with the Text edit functionality but overall it has had a very positive impact on our proofing workflow and cut costs for us enabling us to move to an almost completely digital proofing workflow from a intensive print and paper routing routine.

Vorteile: We had experimented with several digital proofing solutions but landed happily with GoProof. The huge advantage is that it integrates so well with Indesign, proofers don't have to have an account and login. It essentially sends a Indesign proof to the proofers and has text edit functionality that can be simply applied by our designers when proof changes are requested. It of course has all the standard other proof mark-ups. It has saved us a lot of time and has many great little efficiency adding functions.

Nachteile: We've had some conflicts with the Text editing functionality and another plug in we use that makes it not tase useful that we had initially thought it would be.

Kommentare: I love it! It has helped me streamline my graphics proofing process. I no-longer have to take my file into another file to create a low-res, watermarked PDF. I just click the client's name, and submit the artwork to their email - all from withing CC.

Vorteile: As a Designer, I love this product. It works as a plug-in to the Creative Suite - so when I'm finish a design or edit, I can easily send the project to the client... and when it's been reviewed, I can see their requested markups.

Nachteile: The only think I don't like (right now 'cause I know you will improve it further) is the fact that customers have difficulty understanding what is happening, and so I have to instead email them screen captures of the artwork for review instead. My customers tend to be people who know their craft inside out, but don't know the digital design world. It becomes overwhelming for them. I get emails from a few asking why they have to sign up, etc. Please find a way to make the end-user experience even more streamlined so its a simple as them looking right at the file from the link and no other confusing messaging.

Kommentare: It really streamlined our review process. No more sending PDFs to a bunch of editors and loosing track of what version you are working on.

Vorteile: The best thing about this software is that it work directly through Indesign and Illustrator. You don't have to save your document as a PDF and then e-mail it to your reviewers. It does it all seamlessly. Also you send the one proof to your many editor and then they have the ability to send it to all the secondary reviewers so you don't have to do all that work of sending PDFs to a bunch of people and then have to compile all of the edits. All of the edits comeback in one file in Indesign or you can access them from the web when your not at your work computer.

Nachteile: In the comments from editors interface pages you can't see the name of the file. We work with jobs that have many different complex file names. So it is is easy to forget which file you have open in the web interface. I wish when you were looking at a comment when you used the magnifying tool it would automatically go to the comment you are looking at. It usually does a great job of not making duplicate versions but every know and then a file version will be duplicated and the reviewer won't know which one to review, but this is rare.

Antwort des Softwareanbieters

von Oppolis Software an 26.9.2019

Thanks for the great feedback and comments David! We're pleased to say there is a way to see the file name in the web interface. If you click the Proof Status button top-left (it will say 'In Review' for example), it drops down details about the proof, including the file name. Hope that's what you need!

Kommentare: Very good, its really helped us manage the businesses requirements from the studio.

Vorteile: It's simple to use, everyone brought into it very quickly. Has previous versions saved, and its adobe plugin with done/not done was a great add-on.

Nachteile: We add proof checkers in phases, first product/then technical/then grammar. It doesn't seem to like it, and glitches with people not receiving notifications. I wish that we could upload MS Excel/word/ppt files to go proof to get briefing proof checked, then add artworks to the same project, so we can track projects. Also better reporting, total amount of amends of a file would be good, and amendments made by who in reports.

Kommentare: Overall it has been a goo experience. Our workflow has gotten faster now that we have GoProof.

Vorteile: It is very easy to use. Once we switched to reviewing digitally we were worried about if the other departments would be able to use it on their own or if we would need to assist. Everyone has been able to figure it out on their own.

Nachteile: It has a lot of glitches. It deletes one of my InDesign files about once a month. Luckily customer support turned on the backup, however that doesn't prevent it from deleting my files. There also seems to be a delay from when we upload a proof to when the reviewer gets the email. This can be difficult for time-sensitive projects. Also, not being able to delete users has been an issue (for example, if we spelled someones email wrong, I can't delete them. So we have to remember which one is the correct spelling bc both will still pop up as reviewers).

Vorteile: Purchasing this software meant we could get rid of our antiquated physical bag process. No more chasing proofs around the studio! Good integration with InDesign streamlines the proof process and reduces the need to PDF. It's been especially useful for our European colleagues and it's meant all comments and markup are now consistent.

Kommentare: GoProof is good software and it gets the job done. It has a lot of good features that can appeal to a wide variety of uses.

Vorteile: The software is good overall. Being able to customize the emails that are sent to the client is a plus. Additionally, being able to comment and have discussion in the comment section is very useful.

Kommentare: Overall 80-90 percent of our clients have an easy time using the comments, attaching files and viewing their projects to sign off, which is higher than most. The commenting options also give the client full control over their projects which helps communication over the internet when it comes to designing products for market.

Vorteile: I like the custom options for sending proofs, being able to see when clients have viewed the proofs and the availability to update all these things on the fly.

Nachteile: Some less tech savvey clients have a hard time going from their email to the proof, some clients need to have their hand held during the process or to have a sales rep take over completely.

Kommentare: Working in the health care field, we often have many internal clients. This way of proofing is easy and effective. There are a few bugs and how we manage clients is different than an agency, so figuring out the best way to have clients managed is difficult. However, our overall experience is very positive.

Vorteile: The ability to send proofs to clients without them having to have an account.

Nachteile: Videos often take longer periods to load, which isn't a huge issue. However, clients get confused when the video isn't loaded and that the play button is a small button in the bottom left corner. Another bug I would like fixed is when adding and removing people to send the proof to. Sometimes the person is stuck onto the proof and it sends the proof to someone I didn't want them to.

Kommentare: Very good experience.

Vorteile: I really like that we don't have to fuss with pdfs back and forth anymore. All the edits are in one place and we can see the history of changes really quickly. People who are sending edits can see if someone else has already offered a suggestion for change which reduces the likelihood of duplication and wasted time for reviewers. Also, if a reviewer disagrees with an edit, they can do so in line with the comment and keep the conversation right where everyone can view it. It really helps make the editing process go more smoothly...no matter where you are in the world. Because the proof is browser-based, it can be accessed by reviewers anywhere. This is really such a time-saver.

Nachteile: It would be nice to add customized proof status names. Right now, there are only a limited default status options available.

Kommentare: GoProof is a time saver, rather than our team acting as the go-between for the exchange of information on project feedback, GoProof allows everyone to see and comment on each other's feedback — keeping everyone on the same page.

Vorteile: Straight forward, easy to use, and it allows the reviewers to see each other's comments and discuss. Feedback always seems to be taken into consideration for future improvements, several of which we've seen come through in the year plus we've been using the software.

Nachteile: Workarounds/extra steps are needed for certain projects, i.e. PowerPoint presentations and HTML.

Kommentare: VERY GOOD! It saves us tons of time, has reduced proofs and improved accuracy of our publications.

Vorteile: That it integrates with InDesign and we can apply our client's changes directly in the software.

Nachteile: Occasionally, we've had issues with applying changes. These always seem to happen after hours, for GP staff, so that has caused small delays for us in the past. However, the GoProof team has been very responsive to our needs as soon as they open the next day and they correctsany issues ASAP.

Kommentare: Our office split and we have proofing staff that relocated to a different building. Prior that finding GoProof, we had relied on paper proofing. But with the move, that no longer made it an option. GoProof has enabled us to send proofs to staff anywhere, and with more precision in markups and functionality.

Vorteile: Very intuitive online proofing solution. Great for single or small scale projects.

Nachteile: For large scale projects, file handling can introduce some weird errors when file names are changed to accommodate the project; such as working on a large catalogue and the file names are changed. You may be left at times with different version that doesn't show the whole editing history.
