Re-open a review so further edits can be made

Once a reviewer completes and locks a review, they cannot make any additional changes to that review. However, chairs, assistants and track chairs can re-open the review so further edits can be made. The reviewer will not receive a notification when this is done so you will have to confirm with them when they can log back in to edit the review once more.

Step 1) Find the submission

In the Reviews hub navigate to the List of Submissions. Search for the submission in the list and when it appears, click on the title of the submission to view its reviews.

Step 2) Find the review

Scroll down the submission, find the name of the reviewer and select Re-open Review.

You should see the padlock icon beside the reviewer's name disappear and the option to Continue Reviewing appearing. This indicates that the review has been re-opened and the reviewer will be now able to log in and make additional changes.
