Configure access and subscription settings for a proof

You can configure certain access and subscription settings for individual proofs, such as whether to require users to log in and whether to allow users to subscribe to the proof. You can set up access and subscription settings for a proof while you are creating it, or you can set them up for a proof that already exists in Workfront.

Configure access and subscription settings while creating a proof

To set up access and subscription settings for a proof while you are creating it:

  1. Go to the project, task, or issue where you want the proof, then click the Documents section.

  2. Click Add New on the upper-right area.

  3. Scroll to the Proof settings section in the lower-right corner of the New proof page.

  4. Configure the following settings:

    Allow sharing proof via public URL or embed code When this option is selected, the proof can be shared via a public URL or embed code.
    Allow subscribing to proof via public URL or embed code When this option is selected, people who have not been added explicitly to the proof can subscribe to the proof. The person subscribing to the proof is granted the role and email that you define in the following settings:
    • Subscriber role: The default proof role that is assigned to all reviewers that subscribe to the proof. 

      Important: If Allow Sharing With is set to anything other than Everyone in the Workfront Proof settings, the subscription works only for people within the organization. For more information, see Configure Proof Settings in Workfront Proof.

    • Email alert settings for subscribers: The default email alert that is assigned to all reviewers that subscribe to the proof.

    • Proof access via email link required for: Configure whether the subscriber receives an email with a link to the proof. You can select No email (email link is not required to access the proof), Proof notification email only (subscriber receives a link to the proof via email without any verification), or Validation and proof notification emails (subscriber receives a link to the proof via email and must click the link to access a proof, the purpose of this option is to ensure that the person has entered a correct email address to which they have access).

    Note:  If the proofs have Automated Workflow attached all subscriptions will generate confirmation emails to the proof Owners, so they could decide which stage the person should be added to.
