Action Items

Action Items are relevant, current things that you are included in. You can view your "Action Items" on your homepage by clicking the "Home" button on the top right of your screen:


You can select which action items are shown, by selecting the check-boxes for "Incoming", "Outgoing" and/or "Completed". When the "Incoming" check-box is active, you will view all reviews in which you are a reviewer or an observer. The "Outgoing" option will show all reviews in which you are the author. "Completed" will list recently completed reviews. You can also sort action items by clicking on the column labels, "Review", "Progress", "Author" or "My Role".


Your Action Item list is updated immediately if anything changes. You can refresh this screen manually; the home page refreshes automatically every five minutes.

When you have an Action Item directing you to commit files, you remove it by clicking the review link on the left. Collaborator uses these Action Items to track whether review materials have been submitted to version control. If Collaborator does not have enough information to determine that the materials are already versioned it will create a reminder for you when the review is completed.

For recently completed reviews the Action Items list displays the "Dismiss" link to confirm that the review has been finished and dismiss it from the list of your active reviews.

Action Items are also visible in other clients, but that is covered in the separate User Guides.
