An exclusive review is when a specific asset can be sent to one or many recipients for review. When one user takes the review session, only that user can review that asset, unless they are released from the session.
If that user completes the review, the review will simply complete and it will be removed from the list.
You can see any active exclusive review sessions that you have the permission to see.
Review sessions can be in the following states:
Navigate to an available exclusive review session and select it from the list. An available exclusive review session has a green icon next to it.
In the Review Summary panel, click Review.
The Review session opens and you can start reviewing the asset.
When a review session has been taken by a user, the review is blocked to all other users, meaning this will be presented in a read-only mode to the remaining users. The following message is displayed to the review owner:
When a review session has been taken by another user, the icon on the right-hand side changes to red .
There are two ways to release a user from a review session:
In the review session, click the Release button, located in the bottom-right corner of the screen.
In the Review Summary panel, underneath the user’s name, click the Release button.
In order to be able to release another user from a review session, the admin / initiator must have the “Release Exclusive Review” permission selected in their role. For more information, please see the Roles and Permissions section.
When a user is released from a review session, the icon will become green again.
