The fast and easy way to manage feedback and approval of pdf files, images and other creative projects.
Click on the file to open it in large preview mode.
Now click on the Comments icon in the header menu.
This will open Filecamp’s Commenting window where you can add comments and place markers on files.
Start to write your message in the “Write a new comment” field and click save. Click POST when you are done.
Markers are a simple way to assign the comment to a specific location on the page/file. Just click on the Marker icon right after you have posted your comment. You can now click on the preview to place your marker at a specific location.
When you click on a marker on the preview the corresponding Comment will highlight in the Comments column.
And when you click on a comment that has a marker, the marker will be highlighted.
Open / closed comments
Quick overview of all open comments for the entire document. Open comments means work that needs to be done.
You can change Label for a specific page or image from e.g. Not Approved to Approved. Read more about Labels.
The label text and color are determined by the Label set you have assigned to this folder. Admin level users can edit and create new Label sets using the Admin > Labels.
Upload new version
Upload a new version to the file. All previous versions of the particular file are archived and easily accessible. You can quickly toggle between earlier versions of the page/file. Read more about Versions.
Invite others to Comment
You have multiple options for sharing and receiving comments and feedback on your files, but the quickest way is just to open the file in large preview, then click the Share icon in the header menu. Enter the email addresses of the recipients, add a message, and click SEND.
