Changing Item Status doesn't Count as a 'updated item' in the Review

  • 1.  Changing Item Status doesn't Count as a 'updated item' in the Review

    Each requirement has a different state, draft, in review or approved. These states are part of a pick list called Item Status. When the reqs are ready for review, we batch transition them from 'draft' to 'in review'. A review is created a bunch different revisions are published. Finally all the reqs are approved / signed, then the reqs are transitions to 'approved' and system locked. Finally the review is closed. A few weeks later, the engineer needs to update a req-1234 that has already been approved, so permission was given for the engr to transition req-1234 back to 'in review', update it, save it and then re-open the original review. Good  = the comments and history were retained for each req in the review, BAD = the items that were previously approved have now be unchecked and the approvers have to approve them all, even though only req-1234 was updated.

    Is there a way to exclude changes to the 'Item Status' from being part of the '...Item Updated Since VersionX' Filter?
    Thanks...

    Hi Ken,

    There is no way to exclude changes to one field from affecting a filter like this, but this is the second time I've heard this request in a week, so I think it's a great feature request.

    Kristina,

    Thanks, let me know if this feature can be implemented soon. There are so many reviewers / approvers asking for this.
