Alternative Reviewers are users who can review and publish recognition on behalf of another manager. They provide a way to maintain visibility of pending approvals and minimize turn around time in instances where a single manager may not be able to.
Unlike the time-based nature of a Temporary Reviewer, alternative reviewers are able to review and publish posts for another manager as long as they are assigned the role.
To set up an alternative reviewer, navigate to Manage Users after clicking the icon in the menu bar.
Click on Reviewers in the sidebar navigation to get to the Alternative Reviewers page.
In the window that opens, you can create an Alternative Reviewer Rule. Start by typing the name of the reviewer for whom an alternate will be designated, and select the user from the drop-down menu. Repeat the steps to search for and select the alternative reviewer.
Click Save to activate the rule.
Posts pending review by other managers are displayed in your Activity in Progress page along with your other activities.
