Who can use this feature?

Free and Basic plans

  • All project members.

Team, Organization, or Enterprise plans

  • All members of the subscription.

When your teammate requests your approval, you'll receive an email notification and a message in your team workspace (if you’re on the Team, Organization, or Enterprise plans) and project dashboard pages. Click on the link provided in the email notification to jump right to the request or access the approval request from the dashboard.

Approving requests

Zeplin lists all approval requests on the screen detail right panel, under the Approvals section, including details about who requested your approval and any comments the requester left.

To approve a request, click on the "Approve" button on the request directly, or you can click on "View details" for requester comments.

Once all the requests have been approved, the banner on the right side of the screen will be updated — indicating a successful approval.

The screen will also be tagged as “Approved” in the “Approval Status” tag group to help you filter approved screens within your project dashboard. Check out this article for more details.

Requesting changes

If you want to see more details and consider making changes before approving, you can click the "..." options button next to the "Approve" button. You will see the "Request changes" option to leave a comment with your recommendation. This option will also be available under the "View Details" link.

☝️ Requesting a change will not remove the approval request. You can approve it anytime after the changes are made.
