Using Review Reminders
Crucible will automatically send reviewers a reminder email one working day before the deadline.
Review authors and moderators can also do the following:
- Send manual reminders to reviewers whose work is still pending.
- Configure preset reminders for reviews that have a deadline.
Reminders are only sent if Crucible's SMTP server is configured. Please see Configuring the SMTP server.
When a review has a deadline (due date), you can have Crucible send a preset reminder to all of the pending reviewers, some number of working days before the deadline.
To add a reminder, firstly edit the review, then click Add a reminder. You can edit the reminder period.
The Send Reminder setting is only available if the review has a due date set.
You can send a reminder to all the reviewers that have not yet completed their review:
Before the review is due, click Share and add recipients and a message. Besides sending reminders to participants, the Share option can also be used to share the review with people external to it:
If the review is overdue, click Send Reminder. The message is pre-populated with recipients who have not yet completed their review.
