Overall Satisfaction with Filestage

Filestage is the best collaboration tool for your team, especially if you have team members working remotely in different locations. It provides what feels like a virtual tabletop situation for everyone to participate in the proofing process for nearly everything, with easy-to-use commenting features and text editing features as well. As a remote copywriter, this has been an essential software that has simplified the editing process immensely.
  • The user experience is beautiful and fairly intuitive.
  • Filestage allows for easy collaboration on projects.
  • Filestage sends helpful notifications about projects when changes are requested.
  • The mobile version of the site needs a little fine-tuning.
  • The notification system could be a little better.
  • I wish you could comment while comparing versions of a document.
  • Saves time when proofing and editing work.
  • Creates a unified place for feedback from team members.
  • Allows all editing and review to happen in one place.
  • Allows for versioning and version comparison.

  • My team uses Filestage for reviewing copy, and I find submitting documents prepared as a Word document to be the most useful personally. Another team member uploads .PDF documents regularly, and Filestage also allows highlighting text on those. It is also suited for video and audio file review, though our team has yet to experiment with those features.

In some ways, I wish it worked a little bit better with Google Docs, as this is another primary software I use. The main issue here is that it doesn't have the same version comparability, and comment tags don't all show up at once if comments are submitted at different times. It does still integrate so you can keep your work in one space however.
