The Additional Reviewers feature enables administrators to grant additional access to reviews.

This access will allow reviewers to see reviews that are not their own for the submissions that they are already reviewing.


This feature only allows Reviewers to see alternative reviews for submissions they are already reviewing


There are two parts to setting up this access.

  1. Add Additional Reviewers in Assignment Rule settings.
  2. Configure Review Type Settings to control what the additional reviewers can do.


NOTE: This feature only allows reviews for submissions of the same Submission Type to be shared.
