Utilizing Vendors to Upload Content for Reviewmail_outline

What is a Vendor?

Vendors are a type of user that can upload proofs, upload new versions of proofs, and view feedback on proofs they’ve uploaded. Vendors cannot route proofs, edit proof information, or access any request or project details. 

Vendors are intended to be used for outside freelancers, contractors, or agency partners who need to provide completed content to the team. The Vendor role allows you to provide a consistent experience for your reviewers regardless of who creates the content.

Viewing Feedback and +Versioning

After reviews have been completed, the Vendor will be notified via email that the proof has been returned. They can then log-in to their dashboard and view the feedback by clicking the REVIEWS button to the right of the applicable proof. After the necessary changes are complete, the Vendor uses the +VERSION button to post the updated version of their asset(s).
