The Invision of video, and project files

2018-05-29

Great collaboration on project files

Pros

Easy to use and understand for collaboration purposes - if somebody needs to leave feedback on a specific file that requires updates, it's simple to do this.

Cons

Some processes are a little slow/laggy, but it's not enough to impact my recommendation or overall workflow.

Filestage helps us to move faster with our creative content

2019-11-09

Creating and collaborating with various range of content seems like a breeze.

Pros

Filestage gives us more clarity in all aspects of content collaboration and content process review. Our workflow now is more streamlined and we are able to execute things faster.

Cons

I have nothing to complain about specifically. Some bugs can occur when you are using a lot of plugins but that's pretty much normal.

Filestage has been a great tool for removing roadblocks to get projects completed efficiently.

2018-06-08

Read my review!

Pros

We usually start off with a draft document, send a link to the client, have the client comment directly on the draft with questions/feedback, and then we can respond and/or add a new draft, then repeat the whole process until everyone's happy.

Cons

Clunky to use on mobile, an app would be great eventually, for even more on-the-go quick response ability.

Filstage is easy to use

2019-07-03

Pros

I liked the most, that our students marketing association could easily do the Corporate Design checks, which are necessary for us.

Cons

Sometimes I had the feeling, that some Comments on already uploaded Pictures weren't send as an email to the others, cause the notification on the right lower corner was missing sometimes.

We got hooked on filestage right with the first project. Using it for almost all correction rounds.

2017-07-18

Quick and clean corrections and voting rounds with the customers. Saving a lot of time, effort and nerve.

Pros

The simplicity of working with it - especially when giving the link of a file to a customer.

Cons

It kinda reaches its limit when handling really big pdfs (more than 200 pages), since people are going to download the pdf and will make their comments there, instead of in filestage.

Pros

Decreased Review Time for Videos & Websites

2018-07-03

Pros

I have a website and video production company. The review process is now a snap. I simply send the filestage link - instruct the client to leave all the feedback on there, then we will execute all their reviews for a flat "revision" cost - since endless revisions are the least profitable part of the job.

Cons

I had a bit of trouble with the annotation feature early on.

Our first tool to give reviews to our creators was our intranet email.

Pros

The tools to mark in the content of our creators and that you can have many projects of your organization in one place.

I'm using FileStage with a fellow student of mine, we both study film design and photography.

2018-06-21

Pros

- Easy Overview about our projects - no more mess within video production and photo projects - No misunderstanding with reviews - precise definition of task within pictures and videos - quick retrace of different versions

Cons

I hope there will be a calendar option to optimize your organization. Sometimes you like to schedule your projects.
