Peer review of documents

Peer review of documents

Hi, I have a group of users that I would like to review and add comments to a document/documents. How do other people manage reviewing Microsoft documents? I don't really want to promote any objects it is more of an activity prior to promoting to sanity check the document between a few users.

Re: Peer review of documents

Hi Roy,

 

If you are going to have them in Windchill, are you also wanting to treat them differently than any other object? At first appearance, it seems they are just another object.  I was thinking a Promotion Request or something like that?

Re: Peer review of documents

Thanks for your input. I don't really want to do promotion request as the object should remain in a Draft state until all the feedback has been reviewed and added or rejected. From that point it would get promoted to an approved state.

We have attempted emailing a link to the file but this link fails for additional users once the first reviewer has made an update.

(view in My Videos)
With Windchill 11.0 M030 we introduced a new object for Design Review.  One of the OOTB workflows we provide is Peer Review for this use case.  It does not do a state change - it does allow  one to define 1 to many documents to review where a user can have one (or more people) perform a review.

 

Its part of change so one can also tie a Design Review into a Change Request process or a Change Task process.

Re: Peer review of documents

That's a really interesting process, thanks for bringing that to our community's attention!

Re: Peer review of documents

@JeffZemsky ,

We are planning on using this Design and Peer Reviews, but does anyone know where to find them after they are created? 
I don't see them on the Changes Tab of an Affected Object's Information Page.  I can search for them, if I know there number. 
I can see them in the Associated Process Objects of an ECR if I create one from the Design or Peer Review.

I can also see them in the folder context where they were created, if I limit the view to just Reviews.

This doesn't seem very helpful. I would think they would appear on any Affected Object's Information Page?  Any ideas on locating these after completion?

Thanks,

James

Re: Peer review of documents

@JHall We have a project to add that table in an upcoming release.  We release it is a hassle to not have it on the objects page.  I can share a report that can provide information.

I would really like to see this report.  Also we might be able to leverage Subscription a to provide a little bit of tracking i.e. put the Peer/Design Review name in the Subscription. 

 

Thanks!

I can't play this video.  I've tried it in both IE and Chrome.

Re: Peer review of documents

Hi Jeff, i am finding that only Admins are able to create a Design or Peer Review. I have an Engineer that is trying to create one and is getting a message that says he doesn't have permission. Is there a specific role users need to be assigned to or a preference that needs to be set in order to allow Engineers to create a Review?
