Good2Go Dataset

The magic in the Apps. The Good2Go dataset provides a detailed profile of the file in Good2Go. Includes basic file specifications, preflight data, and URLs. Information to drive your remote processing. 

  • Includes file specification
  • Preflight data for PDFs
  • URL for proofing
  • URL for file download
  • URL for upload revision
  • URL to forward file
  • Customer email
  • Customer name, phone, and address
  • File status
  • Processing history
Did you know using the dataset, files can be monitored and routed by Switch but remain in Good2Go until the high-res file is needed for print processing? This can help minimize the number and size of files on local servers.

Workflow examples

A fraction of what you can do with Good2Go and Switch!

Send a file from Switch for print approval

Apps needed: Good2Go Upload
Min. data needed: Customer email, PDF File
Optional Data: Custom message, custom due date (deadline)

Present the file, and the customer email to the Good2Go Upload App to have the file set to the client using the Good2Go default settings. 

Good2Go Standard Email

Add a custom message

Use a custom variable in the Upload App to insert a custom message in the review email to the client.  The due date can be modified too.

Want to use your own email?

Extract the Review, download, or update URL from the file Good2Go dataset and insert it in your own email template in Switch. 

Customer requests a change, Switch routes file to prepress.

Apps needed: Good2Go Status & Download
Min. data needed: Document status
Optional Data: Review comments, direct link to the file in Good2Go

Once a file is reviewed in Good2Go by the client, if they request changes to a document it will change the status. The Good2Go status app can recognize this change and forward the Dataset to the Good2Go Download App, download the document and send it to prepress.

Alternative alert!

Outside of Switch, Good2Go is going to notify the account holder of the request for changes on the document. With a multiple user Good2Go account, the user can just assign a task to prepress to review the change request and make changes. This keeps the file in Good2Go where all actions are captured in the file history and it keeps the document on shared dashboards for all team members to see. Plus, when the change is done, a second review cycle can be sent in seconds right from Good2Go. 

Just think of Good2Go like a turbo-charged Switch Client. 

Chain approval

Apps needed: Good2Go Review & Status
Min. data needed: Customer emails, PDF File
Optional Data: Custom message, custom due date (deadline)

Do you have a need for multiple reviewers on a document? Build a flow that looks for multiple emails in the presented data and moves the same document through a chain of reviewers, or build a flow that sends out a document to multiple reviewers at once and collects all their responses. You’re only limited by your creativity building flows.
