Reviewing an Item

Updated Jun 11, 2021

If you have permission to review items, other people in your organization may author items that require you to review them and either approve or reject the items.

Once an item is reviewed, the item owner can view your approval or rejection and any comments and move the item along in its life cycle to a new item status if appropriate.
