Reviewing Applicants

In Outcomes, administrators can assign applications to reviewers in several ways. The primary way to do this is by creating Evaluation (Review) Forms, and then allocating them to reviewers through the Phases feature or directly. If a review has been assigned to you, you can complete it as described below.

Completing Review Forms

Once review forms have been created by an administrator and assigned to you, you can begin completing them.

To begin completing a review form:

  1. Navigate to the desired applicant from the Applications Grid.
  2. From the pane on the right, click the star icon.

    Open review pane
  3. This opens the review pane.
  4. The review form that appears is the one established for the current Phase the application is in. Fill in your responses and click Save.

    Completing a review form

Review forms are completely customizable, so can require several different response types. These include:

  • Text: allows you to type in a short text response.
  • Paragraph Text: allows you to type a paragraph-length reply.
  • Multiple Choice: presents you with multiple options to select from, and may also allow you to write in your own response.
  • Drop Down: allows you to select the appropriate response from a drop-down menu.
  • Checkboxes: allows you to check as many appropriate answers as necessary.
  • File Attachment: allows you to upload a file in response to the question.
  • Date: allows you to enter a date in response to the question.
  • Email Address: allows you to respond with an email address.

Assignment Summary Emails

Once a review form is assigned to you, you'll also get a daily email that summarizes your progress on your reviews.
