Once a reviewer is assigned, only the assigned reviewer can undertake the review.
If there is more than one reviewer, all the reviewers must agree for a transition to take place. Each interim reviewer's decision is displayed in the workflow popup.
If the optional approval role feature is enabled, you can record the roles that your approvers are performing. Either select from previous roles defined in the space or fill in the text box. After typing or selecting a role, hit Enter or click outside the text box before clicking the blue Assign button.
Users with an assigned approval role will see this in the workflows dialog pop-up as a purple lozenge.
If the Approve and Reject buttons are enabled, you can submit a review.
You can add a comment before submitting your review. This will be sent to other participants via notifications. It will also be tracked in the Activity Report. The comment is submitted when you click on either the Approve or Reject button.
If you are the only reviewer then the workflow will instantly transition to the next state. However, in many cases the review will be configured to require two or more people in which case all reviewers have to agree to either Approve or Reject the content prior to a transition occurring. During this period, each reviewer can change their vote.
Depending on workflow configuration, you might be required to confirm your identity by entering your password and sometimes also your username.
