FAQs about online proofing software

What is online proofing?

Online proofing is the process of reviewing creative assets in your browser using online proofing software. For years, brands and agencies have managed files and feedback over email, chat, decks, and spreadsheets. But it’s incredibly messy, and staying on top of who’s approved what can be a full-time job. Online proofing software streamlines and centralizes every part of this process, bringing every file, version, creator, reviewer, change request, and approval together under one roof.

Who is online proofing software for?

Online proofing software is for creative and marketing teams who need to gather feedback, improve version management, and track approvals on creative assets.

What’s the difference between Filestage and other online proofing tools?

Filestage is the only online proofing software that lets you set up an approval workflow for your entire project. You can then invite internal teams or external collaborators to upload files to your review and approval process. This gives you the confidence that, no matter who creates your content, it will get approved by the right people before getting sent out into the world.

Does Filestage’s online proofing software integrate with other tools?

Absolutely! Filestage offers native integrations with tools like Google Drive, Adobe Creative Cloud, and Microsoft Teams. And we also have a Zapier connection that you can use to collect with hundreds of other tools.
