The Interface

When you have logged in, you will see the Reviewer browse page as shown below. In the browse page you can see all the review sessions that are in a New, Active, or Finished/Expired state separated out into different carousels.

The Top Toolbar

At the top of the landing page, you will see a toolbar.

This toolbar contains a number of useful features. These are as follows:

The Search Bar: The search bar can be used to search for review sessions. You can perform a search, by simply entering a keyword into the search bar.

Home: By clicking the Home icon you will be brought back to the browse page, from wherever you currently are in Reviewer.

Profile Picture: On the top right-hand corner, you will see your profile picture. If you click this icon a drop down menu will appear, where you can access the Settings section, and sign out of Reviewer.

Components

Tiles

Each review session is represented as a tile. These tiles can be seen in their respective carousels in the Reviewer browse page. The details displayed on the tile will differ depending on the state of the review session e.g. If the session is in an expired state, the tile will have “Expired” on it.

Panels

When you click on a review session tile, you will be presented with a review session summary panel. This panel contains the Information tab, the Comments tab, and the Review option.

The Information tab: This tab provides you with various details about the review session including the name of the review, any instructions that the creator of the reviewer has set, the duration of the asset, frame rate per second, the start time code, the initiator, and the session expiry date.

The Comments tab: Here, you will see a list of comments that have been made against an asset. A number will be present in the top-right corner of the Comments tab icon, which tells you how many comments have been made against the asset in total. For example, if there were 3 comments made against the asset, then there the number 3 would be displayed.

Review: The Review option is located at the bottom of the panel. When you click this option, you will be taken to the review session that is associated with that asset.

Review Session Status

As mentioned in the previous section, review sessions can exist in four different states. These are:

New: This is when a review session has just been created. When a review session is “New” it will appear in the New carousel.

Active: When a review session is in an “Active” state, this means it is currently in progress, and you have started reviewing the asset. It is important to note, that it will only appear as “Active” if a user has started reviewing. If there are other users associated with the review session who have not started reviewing the asset yet, the review session will not appear in an “Active” state to them. When a review is in an “Active” state, you can leave the review, and come back to it at any time and continue the review.

Finished: When a review is finished, it means that you have finished reviewing the asset and have ended your review. It is important to note, that it will only appear as “Finished” if a user has ended their review. If there are other users associated with the review session who have not finished reviewing the asset yet, the review session will still be in an “Active State” for them.

Expired: When a review session is in an “Expired” state this means that the time limit in which you had to review the asset has run out. For example: The person who sets up your review session might set the expiry period at 14 days, and so this means that you would only have 14 days in which to submit your review. The expiry date applies to all users associated with the review session. The review session will go into an “Expired” state regardless of whether a user has completed the review or not.

Note: At the bottom of the Expired / Finished carousel, you can filter between Finished and Expired sessions by selecting the respective options from the drop down.

Status Carousels

Each carousel on the Browse page represents the status of the review sessions. So for example: if a review session is in an “Active” state, it would appear in the Active carousel.

The three carousels are as follows:

  • New carousel: Any newly set up review sessions will appear here.
  • Active carousel: Any review sessions that you are currently taking part in will appear here.
  • Finished / Expired carousel: Any reviews that you have completed will appear here. This also includes any expired sessions. You can switch between expired and finished review sessions using the filter, located above this carousel

Note: For each of these carousels, you have the ability to scroll back and forth using the Back and Forward arrows located at the top-right corner of each carousel.

Note: You also have the ability to view all of the review sessions in each of the respective carousels on one page, by clicking the See All link.
