You are also welcome to schedule a free online training session where we’ll take you through the application and discuss any specific creative workflow issues that may be relevant to your situation.

Enterprise & SDK Solutions

Can I obtain the documentation for both the SaaS and SDK solutions?

Yes, please Contact Us | ReviewStudio with your request. Evaluation versions of both solutions are also available after a consultation with a development support representative.

Can the Saas and SDK be “white-labeled” ?

Yes, both the SaaS and SDK can be customized and branded by the host application. More here: Enterprise, Security, and More

What is the difference between the SaaS solution and the SDK?

Both solutions provide the same ReviewStudio functionality to review, annotate and approve a wide range of digital media files. The primary difference is that the SaaS solution is hosted by ReviewStudio (on AWS) and provides all the backend support to upload, process, store and serve the data files being reviewed. The development effort required to integrate with our SaaS is generally faster and easier to undertake than using our SDK.

The SDK consists of our Review Canvas web client and server software that can be installed “in-house” and fully integrated into any existing CMS or BPM platform. With this solution, all the user, media and workflow management is handled by the supporting platform. Our SDK offers more advanced customization and configuration options to support whatever business logic and security profile is required. More here: Enterprise, Integrations, Security

What is the pricing of the SaaS and SDK solutions?

The pricing structure depends upon the type of license required (end user, ASP, OEM) so please Contact Us | ReviewStudio for more information.

What kind of support do you offer?

We provide all integrators with a dedicated development representative available through email, chat, or zoom to assist at all stages of your integration project - from design to implementation through ongoing operations and upgrades.


Can I Integrate ReviewStudio with other project or asset management solutions?

Yes. We offer an open API to allow you to integrate with the platform of your choice. We currently offer integrations with Asana and Monday.

How can I keep track of tasks required to complete a project?

All feedback can be turned into revision requests by converting them to tasks and assigning them to specific users. From the main Dashboard, these users can quickly find any open tasks assigned to them across all Projects and all Reviews. Within a Review, users can filter the comments to show only their open tasks (as tasks are marked as completed, they will be hidden from the list). Admins can also keep track of the progress of task completion by all users across all Projects. More here: Task Management

How do I assign feedback as tasks?

Every comment has a Set Task option below it. Simply set it as a task and then choose the user you want to assign it to from the dropdown menu. Users can easily find and track any tasks assigned to them from their Review Dashboard.

How do I compare multiple versions of a file?

Using Compare Mode, you can review any two files or versions of a file side-by-side that are in the same Review. For full details, have a look here: Compare Mode

How do I create an offline version or archive of feedback on my files?

At any time, you can create a print-ready archive of all the feedback and approvals given on a file. Select the “Prepare Print Page” option on the Review Canvas to print or save the page as a PDF file. You can also batch download or print multiple files using the grid view option. Creating a Print Ready Archive of Markups and Approval Activity

Can you add a watermark?

Our approach to watermarking content, without reducing the quality of the content experience, is to disable the “Download” button in a Review that prevents a user from downloading the original file being displayed in the Review Canvas. You can embed a watermark prior to uploading your file.   


Can I control which Projects and Reviews each user can see or access?

Absolutely. Non-admin users can only see and access the Clients, Projects and Reviews that you explicitly share with them. For Collaborators who have permission to create new Reviews and upload files, you can also limit the specific projects that they can see/access by creating project teams. Internal - External Privacy Workflows

Can I copy or duplicate a Review?

Yes. From the Dashboard, you can select “Copy” from the action menu of the Review you want to copy. You will then have the option to name the copy and select if you want to copy only the files (no annotations) and only the most recent versions.

Can I review my campaign in a single folder?

A Review can be thought of as a proofing “folder”. Regardless of format or size, you can put all the files to be reviewed together in one Review so that they can be reviewed and approved together as a collection.

Does ReviewStudio work on mobile devices? Do I need to download an app?

We built ReviewStudio to be responsive with a UI layout that adapts to your device screen size. We do not require the download of an app - all the relevant functionality works on any up-to-date mobile browser.

How can Reviews be organized?

Reviews are organized by Project. A Project may contain any number of Reviews - each of which may contain any number of files. Projects can also be organized by another category of your preference, such as Clients, Teams, Brands, etc. This 4-level hierarchy provides considerable flexibility for organizing Reviews.

How do I lock or unlock a Review?

The status of a Review can be set on the Review Card from the main Dashboard. The status can be set as Active, Inactive, or Locked. Inactive will prevent access to the Review by any users. Locked will allow view-only access (with no modification or addition of additional feedback).

What are Labels for? How should I use Labels?

You can use Labels to categorize your Reviews. Labels are like folders but with a twist - you can apply several different Labels to a Review and then later find the Review by clicking on any of its Labels from the navigation sidebar. You can also search by Label. Using Review Labels

What browsers does ReviewStudio support? Can I use ReviewStudio on my tablet device?

User Management

How do external users, such as clients, access my Review?

To add external users to a Review, they will either need a user account (such as a Reviewer or Collaborator) or a guest account. For many situations, the guest account can be sufficient. Users, however, have more options with notifications and receive digests, as well as having access to a dashboard. With Guests, you need to send an explicit notification.

How does an Approver give their approval?

If you are designated as an Approver, you will see a “Submit Decision” button in the Review Canvas for each file that is included in the Review. The default options include “Approve”, “Approve with Changes”, or “Revisions Required”. Note that these options may be customized for each account. For more on approvals, check out Managing and Submitting Approvals

How many Admins can I have in an account?

There is only a limit to how many total users you can have under each plan, but there is no limit to the role that each user can be assigned. 

How many users does my account have?

User limits will depend on your subscription plan. You can view your user limit on your Settings > Subscription page. Note that you can add additional users to any plan by reaching out to our support team. Guest users do not count against user limits.

What are the different User Roles in ReviewStudio?

A User is someone who is authenticated to log in to your company’s ReviewStudio site to create, manage, and work on Reviews. User Roles establish the level of permission different users have within the application. Admins have full access to see and manage all Reviews across all Projects and to access general account settings. Collaborators and Reviewers only have visibility and access to the specific Projects and Reviews that are explicitly shared with them. The difference between a Collaborator and a Reviewer is that Collaborators can initiate new Reviews in Projects they can access.

All plans in ReviewStudio also provide the option to share individual Reviews with an unlimited number of “Guest” reviewers.

What is the difference between Users and Guests?

Allowing guest access provides a fast and easy way for you to share specific Reviews with anyone simply by sharing the Review link (a guest password is optional). As with any user, guests can provide feedback and approval actions on your Review files. All our plans allow you to share your Reviews with an unlimited number of guests.

Typically, you would create user accounts for internal and external collaborators who are involved on an ongoing basis with your projects while sharing Reviews with clients as guests.

Some organizations prefer to create user accounts for their active clients as doing so provides authentication and offers them some advanced features not available to guests (i.e., a Dashboard of their active Review links and automated project notifications).

For a full breakdown of User Roles: Different User Roles in ReviewStudio

Who can be set as an Approver? Can Guests be Approvers?

Any user can be designated as an Approver on any Review. There may be multiple Approvers on a Review. You can designate Approvers from the Review Share menu.

Guests can also be designated as Approvers, but it’s either all or none.
