Make "Automatically generate proofs when uploading documents" default to deselected


Level 3


Right now, when you create a new user with a proof license, the option "Automatically generate proofs when uploading documents" is selected. This is irksome.

It's an easy fix (remove the proofed document, go into the user's settings, and deselect this option. But I cannot imagine that most people's workflows involve automatically generating a proof for every document stored within a project.

I'm surprised this is not getting more attention and votes. I agree that the default should be unselected!! Any thoughts, Workfront team?


Level 10


I agree this is weird that the default is to create proofs when there is a very clear option for the user to select Documents or Proof.

Trying to push this up the chain 🙂 We would like this to not be the default as well. We have a very small subset of users who actually generate proofs - less than 10%. It will now be more work for us to go through users and unselect this option as there also isn't any reporting for this feature.
