This article refers to review processes on Submittable's new form builder and is relevant for all accounts with Yes/No/Maybe Reviews or Custom Reviews created after February 7, 2020, and for all accounts with Multi-Stage Reviews. To upgrade the reviews available on your account, please contact our account management team here.

Submittable gives users the ability to create a Review Workflow within a Project, which enables your reviewers to provide feedback on submissions. If you purchased your Submittable plan on or after February 7, 2020, you may have one of three different Review Workflow options on your account: 

  1. All plans come with a a basic Yes/No/Maybe rating system. This is a simple thumbs up, thumbs down rating system that can involves just the click of a button for reviewers, and calculates votes with a +1 for thumbs up, a -1 for thumbs down, and a 0 for a "maybe" vote.

  2. If you purchased Custom Reviews with your plan, your level 4 and 5 organization team members have the ability design custom review forms using Submittable's easy to use  drag-and-drop form builder. Reviewers can complete reviews as submissions are assigned to them, and Custom Review Forms can be applied to your Project under the Review Workflow tab within your Project

  3. If you purchased Multi Stage Reviews, you will be able to set up multiple review rounds for your project's Review Workflow.
