[CodeReviewer] How do you make yourself unavailable for reviews

We are a small group of 12 people spread across the gobe - USA -UK - India - China, and sometimes a particular individual is simply not available to do a code review.



Could be holiday, high priority task, critical path work etc.



How is the best way to indicate to other Collaborator users that that person should not have reviews assigned to them?



I did wonder if there as a 'not available' state within Collaborator, but I could not find anything.



any suggestions on how to deal with this?

Thanks

  • Hi Kevin, 



    In Collaborator, there's no such a feature "Not available". The best way to achieve that is to use Collaborator feature called "Review Pool" where allowing an "Author" to select a Group as a participant, for a given Role. Once you complete the planning/annotating stage and move the review to the "inspection" stage, all users in the group will receive a notification. Whoever takes the review first will be the participant. 



    You can find more information here:


    http://codecollaborator.smartbear.com/docs/manual/8.0/review_pools_overview.html?zoom_highlightsub=Pool



    Another feature in Collaborator is that you can specify how many reviewers required to approve the review. Meaning, you may add three reviewers to the review, but you require just one reviewer to approve the review in order to consider the review completed. 



    Also you can read about that feature "
    Min # required to finish review"here:

    Hope this help. 



    Thanks,

    That sound exactly what I was after.



    I did see that in the documentation, but it was not clear enough for me to understand what feature it was trying to offer.



    Thanks.
