Accessing an Approval Review Request via Email
Admation will notify you via email when you have something to review in the system.
Your email is the easiest way to access approvals in admation. When someone requests your feedback on a piece of artwork, admation will notify you via email. When you receive one of these emails, click the Review Items link.
Or if you are already logged into admation, you can access your approval requests from the Dashboard or Approvals tab. Keep reading to see how to access these screens.
Finding Approvals in the admation Dashboard
The Dashboard is the first page you see when you log into admation. Under Recent Activity, you can view the latest approval requests you have received.
Click an item to go to the Approval.
Viewing Approvals under the Approvals Tab
From the top navigation bar, you can also click the Approvals button to view your approvals. If you have approvals to review, these will show as an orange number at the top of your screen.
Understanding your Approvals Summary Screen
Each row on this screen represents a separate approval request. On the right hand side of each request, there’s an icon which changes depending on its status.
- A green status means that you have previously approved this item.
- An orange status means that you are yet to give feedback on this item.
- A red status means that you have previously requested changes on this item.
These colours are used throughout the system to show the different statuses of your approvals. By default, only Orange pending feedback items will show on your Approvals screen – kind of like a to-do list. However, you can change this view by clicking the Filter tab in the top left corner.
You can also see a number which highlights the number of revisions submitted for a deliverable. V1 is used to describe the first revision.
To view the details of an approval request and to give feedback, click anywhere on the row corresponding to the review request.
If you can’t see the approval request you’re after, you can remove the Pending Filter to show any previously approved or rejected approval requests.
