You will be able to make PDF Annotations if you have been assigned the role of Reviewer in a Document that was uploaded to QualityKick in PDF format.
This can be the case for marketing material, labels, packaging, etc. These files are typically edited outside of QualityKick but the review and approval process can be carried out within the QualityKick application.
Making PDF Annotations
As a Reviewer, you will receive an email notification once the file is ready to be reviewed.
The email notification will include a link to the Document. You will also see the Document on your Dashboard.
Once you access the Document Details page, click on the PDF Annotations icon:
- The PDF Annotations functionality will open the PDF file in a new tab in your browser.
- Make an annotation by placing the cursor where you would like to make the annotation, hold down the Alt button and then drag across the screen until you have selected the entire text you wish to annotate about.
- Click on the Add Comment text will appear either just above or just below the annotation made
- Add the Comment that you wish to make.
- Select the Annotation Category.
- Submit. As soon as you submit, the annotation is saved to the cloud.
Once the Annotation has been submitted it can be seen in the left-hand side margin:
Exit by closing the tab. Remember the Annotations are saved to the cloud as soon as you click on Submit, this means that no necessary action is required to save them.
Once you have finished adding all the annotations you need then Sign as a Reviewer:
Alternatively, if you consider that too many modifications are necessary for the Document to be in order, then you can select to Reject by Reviewer, a reason must be given for rejecting. The Document will then go back to Draft and the Author can upload an entirely new Document.
- Annotations can be made on images as well. The procedure is the same as with text, place the cursor, hold down the Alt button and then drag across the screen to select the entire image.
- Various Reviewers can make Annotations on the same text or image at the same time.
