Working in an Individual Review task as an assignee

NOTE: Only users with the Review Assignee permission can work in Review tasks. For more information, read About task managers, assignees, and lead assignees.

Review tasks allow you to inspect an item list on an item-by-item basis. As an assignee, you can edit items. In an Individual Review task, all assignees work on their own versions of task items. This means you cannot see your teammates’ work. Only lead assignees can view other assignees’ item versions.

This article explains how to work in an Individual Review task as an assignee, including how to edit and submit items.

NOTE: If you have both Assignee and Manager permissions, select Own Tasks on the All Tasks / Own Tasks toggle to only see tasks that are assigned to you.
