Assign Reviews

How to assign to individual reviewers or a group of reviewers

  1. In the submissions list, select the reviews you want to assign, then go to the ‘actions’ drop-down menu and scroll down until you see ‘Assign Reviewers’, and click on it…
  2. You will see the following dialogue listing the reviewers and reviewer groups. To assign the submissions to a single reviewer, choose them from the list, set a deadline if you wish, and click the ‘Assign Reviewers’ button. To assign the reviews to everyone in a reviewer group, see step 3…
  3. Click on the ‘Reviewer Groups’ column heading to apply a filter to the list of reviewers (so you can only see the reviewers in a particular group)…
  4. Select all currently filtered reviewers, set a deadline if you wish, and then click on ‘Assign Reviewers’ button…

We want to assign 3-4 submissions to each reviewer. We have trialed this but once we have assigned a submission to a reviewer it sends them an email straight away before we can add the other submissions to the reviewers name. Is there a way around this?

Yes, you can bulk assign reviews to a group of reviewers like this:

  1. Go to the list of submissions
  2. Select the submissions you want to assign to the group reviewers
  3. Scroll down to the bottom of the page
  4. Select ‘assign reviewers’ from the drop-down menu.
  5. In the dialogue box that pops up, apply a filter on the “Reviewer Groups” column.
  6. Check the check-box next to the “Reviewer Name” column heading. This will select all of the reviewers in the currently filtered list
  7. You can optionally set a review due date here
  8. Click on the ‘assign reviews’ button
  9. This will trigger automated emails to the reviewers notifying them that they have been assigned a review.
