Feature Request: Review - Moderator Item Edits not resetting the Approval Status

  • 1.  Feature Request: Review - Moderator Item Edits not resetting the Approval Status

    Posted 09-06-2019 14:26
    Note: As requested by the community, the feature requests from the original discussion titled "Feature Requests: Review Related" are now split into an individual discussion per feature that was originally listed.

    Feature Request:
    Can the Moderators, for a Review, update an item during a review without having the Reviewer revisit the item?
    • Reason 1: An Item has more metadata than what is displayed in the Review, which was done intentionally as the participants are only reviewing specific metadata.  During a review's execution, the other metadata not under review sometimes gets updated.  So, when a review gets "published", Reviewers are questioning why their approvals disappeared when nothing on their screen has changed.
    • Reason 2: There are instances where the requirement's technical content has been approved, but there's a typo (e.g. "teh" should have been "the"). Reviewers really don't want to revisit a requirement that they've approved previously because of an "Admin" correction.  This is emphasized when reviewers don't even re-select the "Approve" button after this type of correction occurs, which leaves the Moderators in a quandary.  Especially, since it is hard to distinguish between which reviewer has approved the requirement or not.

    Agree. This causes lots of confusion with reviewers as they don't need to review again, but the change triggers a new version which triggers need for new approval

    Very useful. We also often face the problem that the status of a requirement is not considered as "meta-information" which can be ignored during the review:
    Because even if all reviewers/approvers approve the review, the (bulk) change to APPROVED of the items itself is a change as well that has to be approved - this is almost like a dead-lock (it costs too much effort).

    Yvonne:

    Well, reasoned Requests here, I am going to just link the original thread here so our Product team will be able to circle back to it easier. Feature Request: Review Related

    We are actively researching and developing improvements in the Review Center right now, so this is very timely! Really appreciate you taking the time to provide your feedback here. Keep it coming!

    Best,

    Agree with this request!

    In addition to the current simplistic review operation (reset Approvals upon publishing new revision of a review for any items that have been modified since last revision), offer the option for the moderator to choose whether or not to reset the Approvals or Reviewed statuses for any review item that has changed.

    If the moderator chooses to manually decide, there would be a listing of all the changed items highlighting the change(s) for each item, and beside each item there would be Yes/No option buttons for the moderator to toggle indicating whether or not to reset the Approved/Rejected/Reviewed review progress for each item.  Hence, this would allow the moderator full control and flexibility over which items get reset and which do not at their complete discretion.

    Agree with all statements above. This would be useful and improve buy-in to the system. Perhaps there could be some way we (admins) are able to designate what change per field would trigger or require a new version of the review. OR that we could mask/hide changes in the review so that it appears there isn't a change in the item that needs a re-approval.
