StatusFlow is a module in WebProof that is normally used when a proof must be reviewed by a number of users (A g  B g C) in a specific sequence, i.e. user A must review the proof before it can be reviewed by user B. However, all three users are still able to view the page.

When a status code is selected, it is no longer possible to add sticky notes to the page or to make further status code changes. A status flow can only be overruled if the user has been assigned a role that grants "Break Out" permission.

Note: Status flow is not available in FREE and BASIC WebProof versions. See more about FREE and BASIC setup here.


Creating a new Status Flow

  1. Right-click "Status Flows" under "Navigator/Settings" and select "New Status Flow".

  2. Enter the name of the status flow, including a description of what the flow does.

  3. Select the "Status Flow" tab, right-click the folder and select all of the status codes that will be used in this particular proofing process. Try to select them in chronological order.

  4. Complete with status codes.

  5. For each status code, select the next status code in the proofing process using the "Jump to" menu item.

  6. Complete status flow.

  7. The last status code has no "Jump to" option, which means that once it has been selected by a proofer, the page is CLOSED, allowing no further comments or status code changes (with the exception of users who have been assigned roles with the "Break Out" permission).

  8. The "Attach projects" tab is used to attach this status flow to the job(s) that will use it. Then click "OK".

  • When this is done using a role that does not have the "Break Out" permission, the job is restricted to this fixed sequence, which can be quite complex if many users are involved.
