Notification emails with new Proofing feature

Michaela Riley
edited 12/09/19 in Smartsheet Basics

My organization plans to start using the new Proofing feature, and today we did some initial testing to see how it works.

We noticed that the person who requested a proof review didn't get ANY notification emails when new comments, approvals, or rejections were added to a proof. 

We tried to set up notifications using Automation, but I couldn't find a way to set up a workflow trigger related to Proofing. 

Does anyone know how we can make sure the requester gets a notification when new comments, approvals, or rejections happen on a proof? 

Thanks!

    Hi Michaela,

    Unfortunately, as far as I know, it's not possible at the moment, but it's an excellent idea!

    Please submit an Enhancement Request when you have a moment.

    As a workaround in the meanwhile could be to @mention them.

    Would that work?

    Hope that helps!

    Have a fantastic day!

  • Hi Michaela,

    I'm the product manager for proofing. Thank you for trying out the new feature! We will be adding notifications for Approve/Reject actions soon as it is next on our priority list. Let me know if you have any other questions.

    Thanks,

    Brian

  • Love this new feature and glad to see notifications are a priority!

  • Thanks, Andrée! We'll do that for now.

  • Brian, thanks for your response! I'm glad to know that Approve/Reject notifications will be added soon. It would be great if comment notifications would be an option too, but the Approve/Reject notifications should cover most of our needs. Appreciate it!

  • Hi there!


    I'm looking for the answer to this question as well. Have notifications in the proofing feature been made available yet?


    Thanks,
