Request a Review

Publish your content to Review 360, then follow these steps to get started. 

  1. Launch the Review 360 item and click the +Review Request button in the Comments sidebar.
  2. Type in the reviewer's email address and select it from the drop-down list. Add more reviewers as needed. Or copy a list of reviewer email addresses (use any form of separator—commas, semi-colons, spaces, cells in spreadsheets) and paste it to the Assigned Reviewers field to add them automatically.
  3. Enter a custom message for your reviewers if you like. For example, if your content is password-protected, include the password in your message.

    Make messages easier to read using the formatting options on the toolbar on top. Or, use the keyboard shortcuts below.

They can click this icon, select Re-open Review, then choose Re-Open when prompted to reset their status.

  • All seatholders can create or edit a request for any Review 360 item within the subscription. Only the person who made the request will be notified when reviewers set their status to complete.
