Feedback Page

Note

You can send the feedback page link to anyone, and they can comment/approve even if they do not have a Parcel account.

The feedback page allows other team members to leave comments and annotations on your email. The top left corner displays the feedback version you are viewing - click the drop down to review other feedback versions. In the left sidebar, you can see any previously made comments and reviews. The comments section has a filter to show/hide comments by current configuration and resolved comments.

Select the cursor icon in the top menu bar to interact with the email (click on links, etc).

Click on the message icon to switch from interactive to annotation mode, in which you can annotate the email and leave comments.

Click the Desktop and Mobile icons from the top menu bar to switch between a desktop and mobile aspect ratio preview. Comments are device-type specific. Clicking on any comment in the sidebar will open the comment in the preview in that device view.

The Preview Controls menu allows you to view the email with images blocked, in light/dark mode, and with a variety of simulated visual impairments

Click the Review button in the upper right to leave a global comment, approval or request changes. These review messages will appear in the right sidebar and in the Feedback pane in the Parcel Editor.

Silent video of the Feedback page. The bulk of the page is comprised of the email preview, which shows the most recent feedback version of a sample email. The top left corner displays the feedback version being viewed, with a drop down menu to switch to other versions. The left sidebar has sections for reviews and comments. The top menu bar has several buttons. The user clicks and drags on a region in the preview, which produces a blue box of that region. An editable text field appears, and the user types in a comment and clicks the "Comment" button. The comment appears in the left sidebar and the blue box is annotated with a number. The user clicks on the "Mobile" icon in the top menu, which replaces the preview with another preview with a phone aspect ratio (much skinner and taller than the original). The user clicks and drags on a different region of the mobile preview and leaves a new comment there, which also appears in the left sidebar. The comments on the sidebar have an icon representing the device type view they were annotated in. The user clicks on the first comment in the sidebar and the preview changes back to the Desktop view and jumps to where the comment was. The user clicks on the "Review" button in the upper right corner, revealing an editable text field with buttons labeled "Comment", "Approval", and "Request Changes". The user types a message and clicks the "Approval" button. This new comment is visible in the "Review" section of the left sidebar.

After you've been left review comments, you will see them in the Feedback pane. You can still create new feedback versions and solicit additional feedback.
