Workspace Review Grid

For the Workspace you selected, the Workspace Review grid displays the categories and requirements with statuses for each Participating Area that meets your search criteria. The same basic grid display is used whether you have accessed the page as a Reviewer (from the View and Review Submissions link) or as a Review Manager (from the Manage Reviews link).

Certain Statuses, and the related tasks and features, display only if you are a Review Manager.

Use the pull-down Show menu to select whether you want to display All Participating Areas or limit the display to ONLY Participating Areas with items awaiting Review.

If you have accessed the grid as a Review Manager, you can also opt to filter for ONLY Participating Areas with items awaiting reconciliation or ONLY Participating Areas with items awaiting release.

You have the option to include inactive subscribers. These are Participating Areas who have an expired account.

If you change the Show setting or the Inactive subscriber filter, click Update Display to refresh your screen.

What's on the Review grid?

Each row of the Review grid represents a single Participating Area, which is identified in the first column. The remainder of the columns display the review status of work submissions. Check boxes at the top of the first column enable you to display or conceal optional types of information in these columns. While the default setting for this grid is Show All template areas (one per column), you can filter the display to show only a single template area. 
show mouseover, show descriptions, show release

To filter this display for only one template area

  • Select any template area of this Workspace from the pull-down menu of the Show All field
  • Click the Go button to refresh the grid

The new grid display will include only the column of submissions for that area.

The boxes below the Show All field can be checked to display or conceal:

Mouseover Tips - a special tooltip feature that enables you to hover your mouse over any cell of the grid and view the related Participating Area, Workspace program area and status.

 When scrolling through a large grid, Mouseover Tips provide quick access to the identifying information stored in the first column and the column headers, which may temporarily be out of view.

Area Descriptions - display the Workspace area title descriptor (from the template) together with the Title in the column header.

and/or Release Options (enabled by default and described in the Tasks section of this Help topic).


Icons identify the status of work in each category for each Participating Area. Each item is also annotated with the date of the most recent action, the score (if the item has been reviewed) and, where applicable, a link or button that you can use to execute a related task.
Status Icon Definition
