Overall Satisfaction with Ziflow

We use Ziflow to route jobs through the editorial, art, copy, and account departments, so we can add comments, tag people with questions, and accept or stet each other's markings. This allows smooth transitions and communication between teams and allows us secure version control of our documents. We can auto-compare between versions, view past versions, and clearly see where projects are within each route.
  • Auto-compare
  • Version control
  • Easy editing tools
  • I like having the current proof on the right side and the backup proof on the left, but this order isn't the default.
  • I wish I didn't have to click "Add Comment" each time I want to add a comment.
  • It sometimes feels like I'm looking through a filter when reviewing the proofs.
  • Saved time
  • Provided solid version control
  • Can keep track of who made which changes, for accountability
It's easy to make a decision on a proof and then push it along to the next reviewer. And you can pop into the proof to see the progress and review others' comments in order to keep track of feedback.
We can all have eyes on the same change requests or questions and see how they are handled or answered. The program streamlines the routing and allows communication and visibility to all teams.

Proof HQ seems "cleaner" or "clearer" to me for some reason. Font size, maybe? Font style? I'm not sure what it is, but I find Proof HQ easier to navigate.
It works well for checking changes versus previous versions, but isn't a good fit for comparing various file types (checking storyboards versus videos, etc.). Auto-compare works well when margins haven't shifted. It can be easy to get lost within a large document when there are tons of pages to review, as the comments can jump around from page to page when you click to view them and pages shift around. I like being able to "lock" and "unlock" two versions to compare certain portions of them.
