3. About Team Collaboration in Mockplus 3
Team collaboration is the major new update in Mockplus 3, including group project, collaborative design, online review and other features. Mockplus 3 makes it faster and eaiser to:
– Achieve division and cooperation where multiple users can edit the same project simultaneously; – Complete project review through the comments and markups of the prototype; – Raise the productivity of your development team; – Reduce communication cost greatly.
The most striking characteristic of team project is multi-user editing feature. Select “Cloud- >Manage team project members” from the menu to add project members. The project can be modified independently by any members of each client. After the modification, click “Sync” button, and files will be merged. There is no need for each member to remain online all the time during the design process, ensuring everyone a good design experience. When designing, hover your mouse on a page node in the project tree, and you will see who is editing it. The simple and easy-to-follow editing strategy can contribute to a reduction of conflicts in design. Collaboration is hence easy.
Mockplus 3 brings unparalleled online review experience. Not only can a project be demonstrated after being shared online, but now you can comment on the pages and even write markups on the pages directly. The Markup is the unique feature of Mockplus that other design tools of this kind don’t have. You can use various tools, such as arrows, words, rectangles,and brushes, to mark up a page at any position of it. Communication is hence clear.
As for existing personal projects, select “Upgrade to team project…” from the menu, and you can upgrade your personal projects into team projects. The upgrade is hence smooth.
