GMG CoZone 2.1
GMG CoZone has been updated to a new version.
GMG CoZone 2.1 – New features
In addition to ongoing product quality and performance improvements as well as terminology streamlining of UI labels, the 2.1 release focusses on the introduction of the CoZone SoftProofing Agent.
CoZone SoftProofing Agent
The CoZone SoftProofing Agent is a small middleware component installed on the user’s local system that enables you to
• Connect the client system with CoZone in the Cloud
• Start and log into CoZone with just one click
• Communicate local monitor profile data to CoZone
• Capture the last monitor calibration date in CoZone
• Display the monitor calibration status in ProofStudio
• Include calibration status information in annotations
The SoftProof Agent enables users and project managers to monitor the review and approval teams’ viewing conditions.
When CoZone is started via the SoftProofing Agent, clear visual indicators in ProofStudio remind users if their monitor calibration is up-to-date (green) or overdue (orange), or if their monitor has never been calibrated before (red). The red icon is also shown if ProofStudio is started on a monitor different from the one selected in the SoftProofing Agent preferences.
A monitor calibration icon in ProofStudio reminds users if their monitor was calibrated within the time interval defined in Account Settings > Application Settings > Collaborate > Softproofing > Workstations > Calibration Timeout Days
Color-coded index markers on annotations offer review and approval teams basic insight into viewing conditions of their members when they captured annotations.
An overview video covering download, installation and usage of the CoZone Softproofing Agent is available in the New Features section of the CoZone landing page.
The SoftProofing Agent is supported on Windows 8.1 and 10, Mac OS El Capitan, Sierra and High Sierra. It works with Internet Explorer, Edge, Firefox, Chrome and Safari.
The SoftProofing Agent is included in all current Collaborate plans, so it is available to all CoZone users for no extra charge.
Improved Download structure
Approval download now offers the option to include the current version or all versions into the .zip archive
Approval reminders in all stages
You can send reminders to approver groups in all stages of phased workflows. Before, this only worked in the first phase.
The user report in the Admin area has been enhanced to include the number of Collaborate Approvals and Deliver Jobs consumed per user.
Also the accounts report in the Admin area now summarizes the number of Collaborate Approvals used per account.
GMG CoZone 2.1 – Resolved issues
The following technical issue reported to Support has been resolved in GMG CoZone 2.1. Please note that the list describes the problem, not the solution.
Deliver stopped under heavy load
On a setup with multiple ColorProof instances and a large number of files processed, the connection between CoZone and ColorProof became unstable, resulting in the ColorProof instance switching to "Disconnected".
