In general, reviewers do not need to log in when leaving feedback. However, if the reviewer has signed up for Filestage in the past and is using the same email address to leave a comment, they will be prompted to sign-in. This is for security reasons as we do not want someone leaving comments on a registered account that may not be their own!

To make it so the reviewer does not have to log in, you have a few options: 

  1. Have the reviewer email us at and ask to delete their account. By deleting their account, they will no longer be prompted to log in. This is typically the easiest solution. (note: for security reasons, she will have to email me from the email she signed up with)

  3. Ask your reviewers to use a different email address (it could be as simple as

  4. Have them reset their password, so they can leave comments (!/password/forgot)
