Awaiting my review

From time to time, it is challenging to keep track of which files need your feedback, especially when you have to review files across multiple teams.

The Awaiting my review feature helps you maintain a clear overview. This functionality shows you all the files where you haven't submitted your review decision.

To get to the overview, follow these steps:

Log in to your Filestage account.
*If you don't have an account yet, you can sign up here:

  1. Go to your project overview

  2. Click the button "Awaiting my review".

The overview shows you a list of files to which you have been invited to give feedback on as a reviewer and which you have not approved or requested changes.

You can click on the individual file to open it as usual. Once you finish your review by clicking either on Approve or Request Changes, it will be removed from the Awaiting my review section. If you'd like to access the file again, it will still be accessible in its original project.
The files also get removed from your Awaiting my review list if the project admin changes the review status to "Approved" or "Needs changes" or if the project is archived.

When is a file displayed in the Awaiting my review list?

  • If you have been invited to this file as a reviewer (with request review decision enabled)

  • if you haven't submitted a review decision yet

  • if the file status is "In review"

  • if the project is not archived

Protip: Have the Awaiting my review section always on hand to be up to date by adding the following link in your browser's bookmark: https://app.filestage.io/#!/my-reviews
