Reviewing entries and reassigning review stages

  • Updated

Depending on the review process applied to your project, you might need to review an entry for yourself or a colleague. This article explains reviewing and reassigning entries. To send an entry for review, visit Sending entries for review.

Review or complete an entry

Depending on the review process applied to the project, authors complete their own entries or users review colleagues' entries. When it’s a reviewer’s turn to review an entry, they’ll receive an email notification.

To complete a review:

  1. Open the entry and click the entry status in the top-right corner.
  2. If you are:
    • An author completing a self-review, click the action label.
    • A reviewer, click the action label under your assigned review stage from the review summary. In the pop-up window, enter any comments, then click Submit.
  3. If SSO is enabled on the tenant, validate your login credentials to complete the review.

The author will receive an email notification when each review stage is completed, except when completing self-reviews.
