Introducing the new project dashboard

The new project dashboard gives you a clearer view of your whole project. Instead of dragging files from one review step to the next, you can run reviews in parallel. And with new status indicators for "In review", "Needs changes", and "Approved", staying up to date has never been easier.

How to enable/disable the new project dashboard

Open the Early Access Tab in your Personal Settings to enable the new project dashboard.

Choose which reviews to start when uploading files

To upload a file, go to your project and click "Upload file". You can then choose which review steps you want to start the review in.

The uploaded files will appear under the “Upload file” button on the left side of the review steps. And you'll also see an "In review" status indicator for all the reviews you started.

Start a review after uploading your files

To start a review in a specific review step, click “Start review”. This will send an email notification to your reviewers, and they'll also see it in their notification center.

Opening a review

To open a review, hover over the review you want to open, then click "Open this review.

Review statuses and what they mean

The new project dashboard introduces three different review statuses that can be changed any time during the review:

In review

The latest version of the file is under review and the reviewers can enter comments, approve, or request changes.

Needs changes

The latest version of this file has been reviewed, and the reviewers have requested changes. Please note that the download files and commenting is disabled by default in the reviewer settings.

Approved

The latest version of the file has been marked as approved. If the review status of all started reviews are marked as approved, the whole file will be highlighted as green on your dashboard.

Commenting is disabled by default in the reviewer settings.

Managing file versions

To upload a new version, click on the upload a new version button under the file name.

You can then choose which review steps you want to start the review in.

Please note that you can start the review in multiple review steps at a time, but the version number will be the same in all review steps.

The current version number is displayed on the right side of the file.

To see previous versions, click on the version number and all previous versions will be displayed.
