If you have been given the role of the final approver of a proof and you want to approve it as is, no comments must be marked as a to-do for action.

To give a proof final approval:

#### Step 1

Open the proof either by clicking the proof tile from your dashboard inbox, or clicking view proof in your email invitation.

#### Step 2

If the proof involves other proofers, you will be asked if you want to lock the proof for final review. Click lock for review.

#### Step 3

If there are comments on the proof, make sure there are no to-dos marked (the to-do should be greyed out).

#### Step 4

Click approve.

Once the proof has been given final approval, the proof owner is notified and the proof is auto-archived from everyoneâ€™s dashboard.
