Add Committees or Individuals to a Case Review Step

One or more standing or ad-hoc committees, or even individual reviewers can be added to a case review step when creating or editing a case.

If multiple committees or individuals have access to a case at the same case review step, reviewers will have access to the case documents and responses to candidate forms at the same time.

Committee instructions, voting records, and conversations will only be visible to their respective committee, no matter how many committees or individuals have access to a case at a given step in the workflow.

Committee Managers and Evaluators with only one committee assignment will see the instructions, voting records and conversations for their assigned committee at a given step. Committee Managers and Evaluators with more than one committee assignment (or individual access), can toggle their view to see the instructions, voting records and conversations for each of their assigned committees.

Select to add a standing committee, ad-hoc committee, or individual user

  • Standing committees are created at the unit level (i.e. university, school, college etc.) and can be reused for cases in that unit.
  • Ad-hoc committees are created on a per case basis. An admin will need to add members to this committee before a case can be initiated.
  • An individual user can review the case, but will not be able to collaborate with others. To allow multiple members to review together, create a standing or ad-hoc committee.

Make your selection and click "Add"
