Design Review and Approval in Web Browser

This tutorial will demonstrate the design review and approval process in a web browser, using CorelDRAW.app.

Click on any of the images below to view full-size.

We start with a CorelDRAW design file that the designer is ready to submit to a client for approval and has uploaded to CorelCLOUD.

The client doesn’t need to have CorelDRAW Graphics Suite installed on their computer, because they can access the file in a web browser using CorelDRAW.app.

While the file is open in CorelDRAW.app, choose File > Share File.

The URL for the file is listed at the top of the Share File window. If you want to send your own email to the client, first set the client’s role as Approver. Then copy the URL and include it in the email you send to the client.

Or, if you want an email to be sent to the client automatically, enter the client’s email in the Private Sharing field, change the role to Approver and click Add.

Then close the Share File window.

To mark the file as ready, go to the Comments panel and set the status to Request Approval.

The client will receive an email that design approval is requested, and this email contains the link to the file.

Clicking the link opens the file in CorelDRAW.app, and the client will see a note that they can comment or annotate, as well as approve the final revision.

If all looks good, the client/reviewer can change the status from Ready for Approval to Approved.

Once approved, the designer will receive an email that the client has approved the design. Clicking the link in the email opens the file once again in CorelDRAW.app, with its status marked as Approved.
