Add a Committee Form Requirement to a Template or Case

When creating or editing a template or case, Unit Administrators can set a committee form requirement for a specific committee or individual at a specific workflow step. Once added to a case, the committee form will appear in the Required Items section of the Case Details tab of the Case page. All required items must be completed before the case can advance to the next step. Forms must be completed by the assigned user, however a Committee Manager or Unit Administrator can select to omit the form as a requirement for a user, allowing the case to move forward.


Omitting/Enforcing requirements: When a case has a required committee form at a specific step, a Unit Administrator with access to that case can still bypass that requirement at any time. The required item can be omitted for a given committee member or reviewer in order to make sure that committee forms do not hold the case up. Likewise, the Unit Administrator can change this setting to enforce the form requirement.


Check out this article on how to manage respondents to a committee form in an RPT case for more information about this feature.
