Review process

During the review process, the reviewer approves or rejects the document. Sometimes a document will have multiple reviewers.

If the reviewer rejects the document, the author and owner are notified and the review is cancelled. The author, owner, and reviewer should discuss what changes need to be made to the document. If the reviewer approves the document, the author and owner are notified that the review was successful and the document can move to the approval stage.

If multiple reviewers are assigned to a document, the first reviewer to act dictates what happens to the document. For example, there are two reviewers, A and B. If reviewer A acts first and rejects the document, the review process stops and the revision state is set to Cancelled. Reviewer B receives a notification email stating that the review was rejected and their status is changed to No Longer Required. If reviewer A acts first and approves the document, the review process stops and the document can move to the approval stage. Reviewer B's status is changed to No Longer Required.
