Review and make decisions on proofs in the Adobe Workfront mobile app

When a proof is assigned to you for approval, it appears in your list of approvals in the mobile app. You can review the proof directly in the app and make a decision on it. For information about reviewing and approving proofs in Adobe Workfront, see Review proofs within Adobe Workfront.

You can add comments to the proof and go through a revision process before making a final decision. For information about comments, see Comment on proofs in iOS or Comment on proofs in Android.

Your access to review and approve proofs is the same as in Adobe Workfront. For information about proofing capabilities, see Proof Permissions Profiles in Workfront Proof.
