Email alert settings

Email alerts for reviewers can be set on the New proof page, New version page and managed in the Workflow section of the Proof details page.

Every user can also set their own email alert settings that will be automatically applied when a proof is shared with them.

Please note: Proofing default settings are overridden by the settings at proof level.

Users with Administrator or Billing Administrator profiles can also set the proofing defaults for other users in their account from within Account settings.

Please also see User profiles and permissions.

Dropzone notifications* are governed by a separate set of settings that can be accessed by account Administrators in Account settings.

 *Select and Premium editions only
Every user can set their own proofing defaults in their Personal settings.




To go to the Proofing defaults tab The first two sections of the Proofing defaults tab are related to email alerts and notifications (see below).
Default email alert - you can set the email alert that will be applied to every proof that is shared with you (note this can be overridden at proof level).

Default email alert for new guest reviewers - this setting will be applied to reviewers that have never been added to a proof before (i.e. they did not previously exist as a contact in your account).

Email confirmation when proofs are ready - here you can decide if you want to receive a Proof made email when you create a proof.

Format of emails sent to me - you can choose between HTML styled emails and Plain text emails.

Please note: Proofing default settings are overridden by the settings at proof level. However, if the proof email notifications are disabled for the whole account in the Account settings, no email alerts will be sent to the collaborators even if the Disabled email alert is not selected on the proofs (but e.g. Daily Summary, All Activity).
Proof subject template - this will automatically show on the New proof page, New version page, Message page and Remind page but can be edited before it's sent.

Proof message template - this will automatically show on the New proof page, New version page, Message page and Remind page but can be edited before it's sent.
