Reviewing Files & Commenting

When a portal user submits a file, it will be noted as "Pending Feedback" within their portal with an orange circle next to the task name. This allows for an event admin to review the document that was submitted before it is approved allowing for the portal user to resubmit if needed.

Below, are the steps an admin will need to take to review the document that was submitted.

  1. Navigate to the Portal module and select the tab "File Requests".

  2. Next, locate the file request name and click the blue "View Results" button when you hover over the line.

  3. Select the expansion button to the left of the contact you want to review a file for.

    1. NOTE: Files that are not approved will be noted with a status of "Pending".

  4. Within the pop-up box that appears, you can review the file by clicking on the file name to open it in a new window or download the file by clicking the download icon to the right of the file name

  5. To approve or deny the file, you can use the green and red icons below the file. You can also click the three vertical dots to the right of the download icon to approve or deny as well.

    1. Green check mark = Approved

    2. Red "x" = Denied

    If you would like to comment/message within the file, you can use the message box on the right side.

    APPROVED FILES: Once a file has been approved, the tasks within the portal will be identified by a green checkmark and the portal user will no longer be able to submit any new files.

    DENIED FILES: If a file is denied by the admin, the task will be identified with the full orange circle within the portal as well as "DENIED" listed beside the file name.
