Exciting news! We now allow you to create a project in Punchlist by pulling in pages, frames, and assets from Figma. Give clients a familiar, user-friendly platform for leaving feedback and let your team have more control over how feedback is organized and distributed. See how it works below, or get started now.
You’ll notice a new addition to your project’s List View beginning today. We’ve added an Kanban View that allows you to view all feedback items grouped by status on one location. You can also view feedback for individual pages in the Kanban style. Dragging items between columns updates the status automatically, and you’ll see the new status reflected when you switch back to the Project View.
Internal / External Comments
We aspire to make Punchlist a hub for all creative feedback - whether it’s a client reviewing a project before launch or a discussion between team members on what work is left to be done. When it comes to team discussions, sometimes you prefer to reach a conclusion internally before letting the client know (we’ve all been there). So we’re introducing team-only (internal) commenting! No longer will you need to create one Punchlist project for internal comments and another for external comments — everything can happen in one project.
When you’re a member of a Workspace (no matter your role), you’ll see a toggle that allows you to take a comment from public to private. When you do that, you’ll see a subtle shift in the color of the comment card, and the text will change from ‘Everyone’ to ‘Team Only’. Once you submit the comment, you’ll notice the color persists in the sidebar (as a visual cue the comment is private) and a lock icon in the bottom left.
Any replies or files uploaded to a private comment are also private. At this time, there is not a way to change a piece of feedback from public to private (or vice versa) once it’s been submitted.
This is the first of several features created for users who conduct SEO audits or manage in-depth SEO QA prior to launching websites. You can now view a page’s Google PageSpeed Insights score for accessibility, best practices, performance, and SEO right inyour Punchlist project. Just hover over the page’s thumbnail at the top of the screen or click to open the Page Overview at the top left of the project page.
As you may remember, we introduced universal search and in-project search to Punchlist earlier this fall. But it didn’t do everything the way we wanted it to, so we rebuilt it for 2.0. Using the magnifying glass icon (or the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+K on Mac) you can search for any keyword. If you search on the dashboard, we’ll show you project, pages, items and comments that are relevant to the search term. If you search in a project, we’ll show you pages, items and comments within that project that are relevant to the search term.
We heard from users that it was annoying when the pop-up where users left comments was covering up the project. This made it difficult to see the item they were discussing.
So we updated the item UI. Now, all conversation around a feedback item takes place in the Items tab on the right side of your screen.
You can still see all the helpful data related to a feedback item, like a screenshot of what the project looked like when the item was left, the date and time the feedback item was created, the user’s browser info. You can send the feedback item to your project management tool via an integration or update the work status to let others’ know what’s happening.
Most importantly, you can reply to a piece of feedback with a comment and hold an entire conversation without ever covering up the project.
Gives users more control of the pages in their project. You can now remove any page of a web or image project, without it affecting the rest of the project! 😅
This release was focused on two core features that will allow you to manage projects more efficiently, and easily control who can (and can’t) collaborate.
For agencies, brand teams, and anyone who manages multiple stakeholders and projects, these features are key to making sure everyone stays organized, and nothing goes out to the wrong eyeballs before it’s ready.
Now you can control who can view and comment on your Punchlist projects, using the Project Access feature within Share settings.
Simply click “Share” on any project, and you’ll see a dropdown with 3 options:
You can also stack together Private Projects with Password Protection, for an added layer of security and control over “who sees what.”

A lot of Punchlist customers manage multiple brands and 10+ projects, websites or landing pages. Often you’re dealing with a different group of stakeholders depending on the client team. We’ve just made it easier to manage your Workspaces within Punchlist, and quickly toggle between Workspaces with a handy dropdown menu in the top nav. You can have different team members in each Workspace, house all your projects into a unique Dashboard, and then get even more granular by organizing your Projects into Folders.
By popular demand, our team just put the finishing touches on a new integration with one of the leading project management tools: Monday.com! Say you’ve already built out your custom workspace, and you want to sync your Punchlist feedback items within Monday. You’re in luck. Now, the same helpful data that’s instantly captured in your Punchlist comment (screenshot, browser, resolution, device) will appear when you send the item to Monday.
Be among the first to try this new release. Head over to Project Settings → Integrations and click the Monday.com logo, or select Add an Integration from the quick settings dropdown.
If you’re a Monday power user and would be interested in giving us feedback on the integration, and how you’d like to see it improve for v2, we’ll give you an extended 30-day Team trial in exchange for feedback.

Item Permissions – Item owners (i.e. the person who gave the feedback) now has full edit permissions to modify the content of an item. There were a few cases in which people weren’t able to edit a comment — we fixed it.
App Load Speed – We have improved Dashboard loading speed and ensured that your Punchlist projects can support as many feedback items as needed – even a 50-page website or 100-page PDF with lots and lots of comments.
Yes, Your Website Works – We’ve made improvements to our secret sauce to handle even more types of websites. If you’ve run into trouble before with loading an “edge case” website, this is a good time to retry that same site. If it still doesn’t work? Submit it for review and we’ll take a look!
Legacy Members – We fixed a bug that could cause some legacy account owners (i.e. signed up before February 2022) to be incorrectly restricted from features they are entitled to. As a friendly reminder, if you’re a longtime customer of Punchlist, you are “grandfathered in” to our Pro plan and all advanced features that come with it. We appreciate your continued support!
This week we did a little styling update to Status dropdowns, making it easier (and prettier) for you to run your multi-layer project management process, and know where everything’s at.
As a friendly reminder, any paid plan (Solo, Team, Organization) members can update the status on each feedback item to:
This release also contained miscellaneous bug fixes that you probably don’t care about. But hey, we’re in this weekly habit of building and shipping, so let’s talk about it.
In the past, the Settings section of Punchlist had become a bit of a junk drawer.
We wanted to better organize it — so you can quickly toggle things on/off and customize the Punchlist app to fit your team’s needs.
This means more control over your projects, without the frustration of hunting around. We want our members to spend their time making amazing projects, and less time trying to manage them.
Now when you navigate to “Settings” on a Project level (top right nav button), you’ll notice clearly organized sections:
We hope this helps you free up time to focus on the creative work, and better control your settings and project communication.
As you may already know, Punchlist integrates with Slack for instant visibility and compartmentalization across your projects.
In this release, we made some improvements to this integration requested by Punchlist members who are juggling lots of client projects and in turn, lots of Slack channels.
And of course, the integration works both ways.
Now you can mark each item as more than just “Done.”
There’s now a dropdown per feedback item that allows a Team Member or project manager to change the status to:
This works wonders if you have a multi-layer review process, or kanban task management system, and you need to know exactly where things are at.
Who can update Statuses in Punchlist? Any Team Member, Manager or Account Owner on a paid plan (i.e. Solo, Team, or Organization plan – or a trial). Enjoy!
Just a few items in today’s release, as we gear up for some awesome new features in the coming weeks! Can’t wait to share with you.
This is a “maintenance” release, chock full of bug fixes and UI improvements. We’re polishing up the Punchlist app, making sure it provides the smoothest experience for your clients and teammates to collaborate and manage projects together.
