Ease of Use (4 out of 5)
One of the benefits of ProofHub is that, because it is a web-based application, your team can access it from any location with any type of computer or operating system and there is no software to install.
The interface is user-friendly and refreshes automatically. This means that if several users are accessing the account simultaneously they can see what changes other team members or clients are making almost instantly. The dashboard provides an informative overview of your account and all of your projects.
The tabs across the top of the account page are concise and clear, and options on each tab are readily available. Most functions are a simple button click to begin, and hovering your mouse over a button or link provides a brief description of the tool or option. You can add notes to files within the site, rather than downloading a file, annotating it and uploading it back to the account.
