How to import a website for review
⚠️ Please note: To make sure that the website you want to review is compatible with Filestage, please check the Live website proofing checklist.
The website viewer in Filestage always loads the original content of the URL in real-time. This means that changes to the website are automatically reflected in Filestage. Filestage does not preserve older versions of a website.
View and annotate live websites
In the website viewer, you can switch between the browse mode and the comment mode.
💡Note: To fully view and comment on websites, install our browser extension. Click here to learn more about our supported browser extensions.
When you open the website viewer, you're in browse mode by default. You can interact with the website just like you would in your browser: scroll, click links, open pages, open dialogs, and more. If you want to add a comment to a location in the web page, you need to click comment mode at the bottom of the screen.
As soon as you switch to comment mode, Filestage will capture a screenshot. You can then tap anywhere to comment on that part of the page.
A screenshot of the website is saved for each comment. This is to preserve the original context in which the comment was created. For example, you can see the temporary dialogue box or pop-up menu that the comment author saw.
In case new content is added to the live website while you have the viewer open, you can use the Refresh button to view it.
How much storage space does my live website use?
Uploaded live websites and screenshots taken by commenting will not be added to your storage space.
