You can collaborate with remote partners on projects directly from the Captivate Draft app on your iPad. 

After creating your project, you can send a draft for review so that others can provide suggestions for you to incorporate into the final project.

When you choose to send a project for review, Adobe Captivate automatically publishes the file to a temporary location and sends an email notification with the link to the assigned reviewers.

When you send a project for review, it goes through these states:

Under review state: In this state, the project is undergoing reviews. The author and the reviewer can add comments and doodles. However, the project itself is not editable.

Work in progress state: After the review is ended, the project enters the work in progress state, where the author can fix all comments received. Once done, the author removes all doodles and comments, and the project gets back into its normal state.
