A powerful tool for tracking artwork submission and approvals.

5.0 7 years ago

Comments: I can see what my jobs are and importantly what their job numbers are so I can track the artwork down from the server. I can also find relevant material to a job assuming the client has remembered to upload anything.

Pros:

1. You can see where all your current jobs are, what their job numbers are and if they have been reviewed and or approved. 2. The preview is fast. 3. Great for tracking progression of a job. 4. The Admation team bring out regular improvements to the software.

Cons:

1. It involves too many steps to upload a single piece of artwork. 2. It generates a different job number for every element of a campaign, if you have 60 pieces of artwork you have 60 different job numbers for one campaign. Surely the description of the file dictates the difference without the need for seperate job numbers. 3. Overly complicated at times. 4. Markups to PDF's are very messy. Shame it doesn't use Acrobat to markup.

An update from the Simple platform

4.0 9 months ago

Pros:

The search feature on Admation is more intuitive than the Simple platform. All the filters applied work and help narrow down the results shown.

Cons:

We can't send one document to multiple partners at the same time on the same level of approval.

Admation is lacking many functions that would make it more user-friendly.

2.0 7 years ago

Pros:

The audit trail is a useful feature.

Cons:

The inconsistent and seemingly random allocation of job numbers. It would be better to have a job number (e.g. 123456) and then the deliverables are listed as .1, .2 (e.g. 123456.1). This would save lots of time searching and streamline the process. The fact that sometimes the only option is to go BACK but you can only do this limited times. The email/messaging feature is clunky. Having to select ALL or ANY when there is only one contact. Having to specify who the recipient is when you are replying to an email. No 'back to top' feature so lots of scrolling especially in the asset library. Long subject lines in email e.g. "Your item has been approved/reviewed" which only leaves a few spaces for the actual job name. It would be better if it just said "approved" or "rejected" and gave more of the job name. There are too many places where information can be stored (e.g. requirements for the job) and it is easy to miss things. It would be good if there was an option to "download all". Sometimes we have ten or more docs to download and it can be time consuming to do these individually. As well as "project organisations" and "project team" it would be good if there was a space in the job deliverables detail screen where the name of the designer and copywriter could go.

Hi Kate, Thanks so much for your comments! I've taken note of your points and have passed all of your feedback to the UX team. I agree that features such as the Back to Top scroll will be quite useful! You'll be pleased to know that we're currently reviewing our subject line structure for email notifications. This release should be available before the end of the month! I'd really love to hear your suggestions for the ALL/ANY approval when there's only one recipient. I've made a note to start chatting about this with the UX team quite soon. Lastly, there are ways to download multiple items out of the system. Files can be bulk downloaded, and assets can be bulk exported via the Cart function! It would be great to set up a time to chat about these. If you'd like to learn more about these options, please email us via [email protected] to arrange a time to chat. Looking forward to it! Best wishes, Samantha

Still needs a few tweaks

4.0 6 years ago

Comments: Overall it's fine, but a few tweaks to the way the software operates will help it be a more seamless experience.

Pros:

Great for transparency across colleague's work and their obligation on certain tasks

Cons:

You can't click back without the page messing up. Sometimes colleague feedback is overwhelming and you can't really tell the order that it's in.

Hi Anna, Thanks so much for your feedback. I'm glad that you're enjoying the additional transparency around providing feedback. There's an option in the system to Download a PDF report with feedback that's numbered in order. The button to download the PDF is found just above any existing comments on the right hand side of your approvals screen. Let me know if that's an easier way to view feedback in the system! If you require any additional support, please don't hesitate to email [email protected] for assistance! Happy Productivity! Samantha
