Approval Studio has a Google Doc-stylized panel that shows you the avatar and username of the person who is currently reviewing the file with you.
Annotations appear live
All design annotations added by your teammates will appear on your screen instantly as the system is fully online and doesn’t require you to refresh the page to see the new comments.
Commentary panel for communication
All added annotations are visible in the comments section to the right of the screen in the design proofing tool. This is where you can engage in discussions with your colleagues and start your design feedback process.
Always see the username of a person who added comments and the user who invited them if reviewer is external.
Check the exact date and time when the comment was added according to the time zone from your settings.
Each annotation has a number assigned to it in the order it was added to the mockup.
Each comment can have a file attached if you need to provide some info or an example with it. If the attached file is an image, its thumbnail can be previewed right in the comments panel.
If you made a mistake or find the annotation you made no longer relevant, you can delete it.
In order to maintain organized online design collaboration with your colleagues, you can reply to annotations and start whole discussions. All replies will also be visible online to all review session participants.
Each annotation can be highlighted and marked as “resolved” if you’ve come to an agreement about the issue.
Separate comments can be hidden from external reviewers if you want to discuss something exclusively with your internal team.
