              Orders - Proof Email)

              Note: Once the proof record has been created, the proof status auto changes  

              to awaiting approval.


             If the customer approves the proof, it comes back approved on DocketManager.

            If the customer requires changes, they type comments/desired changes in the 

            box. The customer response comes back as proof notes and status on 

            DocketManager updates to indicate changes required.

            Extra Features:

            When client sends back a response the user who sent the proof gets an alert.

            To find out when the status was updated, go to the graphics tab of the item 

            screen or on the production page with graphics view when hovering over proof 


Once a proof record has been created, proof notes can be added and the proof status can be manually changed. See Orders - Proof Notes and Orders - Manually Changing Proof Status.
