Review a LiveText Document

Submit a Document for Review

  1. From within the document, click the Send for Review button located above the page title on the left side.
  2. Enter the LiveText username, group, Visitor Pass, or the first and last name in the Search for Reviewers text box.
  3. Based on the first few letters of text entered, LiveText's Autocomplete Share Mechanism predicts the name or username of the LiveText member with whom the user wants to share. The system will display the first 15 matches below the search text box. If the user is not listed, the system was not able to identify the user. There were either no matches or several matches. Revise the entry, and try again.
  4. Click the Submit this document for review button
  5. The system will display a confirmation message.


By default, LiveText will search only users within your domain. A domain is often, but not always, synonymous with a school. To search for LiveText users in other domains, select the radio button next to All Users located above the search area.

Once the document has been submitted for review to another LiveText user, the user can access the document from his/her Reviews Inbox.


Resubmit a Document for Review or Assessment

If you have made revisions to your document after submitting it for review, you may resubmit a new version of the document. A resubmission is no different from a submission. Follow the steps in the Submit a Document for Review documentation.

  3. Select the checkbox to the left of the document submission.
