Working in an Item Analysis Review task as an assignee

Review tasks allow you to inspect an item list on an item-by-item basis. Item Analysis Review tasks allow assignees to view and comment on the items provided in the task. Assignees can also view other assignees’ comments on each item.

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

This article explains how to work in an Item Analysis Review task as an assignee.
