Currently 'Changes Required' is listed right next to the file being proofed, whether proofing is finished or not.
It creates the impression that everyone has weighed in even when they haven’t. This has caused confusion several times.
"Why haven't you gotten to work on round 2 yet?"
"Because round 1 isn't finished proofing."
"Yes it is."
"No it isn't."
"It says so right there...'Changes Required'."
"I know but that's not accurate, I'm not sure why it says that."
...it wastes time and could make us look bad.
Simply show the proof's status in that place:
Approved, Changes Required, or In Progress.
