Assignment Rule

An Assignment Rule controls how Reviews are created during Assignment.

A project may have multiple Submission Types and multiple Review Types but it may not make sense to enable reviews for every Review Type for submissions of every Submission Type.

Assignment Rules can be managed from the List.


An Assignment Rule can have multiple Settings to control how Assignment works.

These can be managed from the Settings Page.


A project may have two Submission Types: Awards and Abstracts.

It may also have two Review Types: Award Review and Abstract Review.

In this example, the following combinations of submission and review are required:

Submission Type Review Type Required
Abstracts Abstract Review
Abstracts Awards Review
Awards Abstract Review
Awards Award Review

For this project, 2 Assignment Rules are required so that Abstracts can have Abstract Reviews and Awards can have Award Reviews.
