Reviewing the document yourself

  1. Click the arrow next to the document.
  2. You can view the document by selecting Open using the arrow in the File column.
  3. Now select the review status for the document. The statuses are chosen by the project owning organization, so the ones you see will depend on your project. However, they might look something like this:
    • Approved - no further action is needed
    • Rejected - the supplier needs to resubmit the document
    • Not reviewed - defer the review until later.

If you're rejecting the document add a comment in the Comments out section for your supplier.
