We're currently having a row between our Project Management team and the Production/Proofreading team:
One the one hand, the PM team wants to go all-digital with proof routings, including the handling of corrections by the Production and Proofing teams.
However, the Production/Proofing teams for years have relied on a composite PDF of the changes from our previous system that takes advantage of Acrobat's "Comments checklist" functionality to make sure they methodically hit every change. This also serves as their digital record of the work.
(Personally, when I have complex annotated PDFs to go through, I like the checklist ability too...I think not having it and trying to work on corrections straight out of WF is asking to make mistakes...)
However, using the PDF button under Print Summary to get that checklist is cumbersome and takes at least six steps to generate, download, then re-attach to a new Task to get the work done. A huge time suck over our previous way of doing it.
The PMs aren't against the PDF per se, but since it takes so much time (and the generic email subject when you're doing dozens of routings per day doesn't help) they suddenly want to go all-digital to avoid it. But the Production/Proofreading team's time would increase as a result of trying to do it online combined with whatever workaround they'd probably try to do.
So: this would be easily solved if Workfront Proof had the same ability for an assigned person or persons to be able to checklist items. Ideally, this might mean each user has their own checklist tracked within the proof.
