Review reminders help team accounts deliver the most accurate information to customers and internal teams by alerting project members when an article is ready for review. This helps to keep your article up to date.

Review reminder

Create and apply review reminders to flag an article for review immediately or set the review reminder to trigger on a specified date. You can also apply a review reminder individually or to a group of articles.

When an article needs review, a red dot (article status indicator) will show on the left of each article title in the documentation editor.


Creating a review reminder for an article from the documentation editor

  1. Go to an article, click on the article settings on the right
  2. Scroll down the list of menus, find the Review reminder section, and expand it
  3. Enter a reason for the review. Ensure it's descriptive enough to provide context for the team member tasked with reviewing the article. This field is optional
  4. Select a date for the reminder to trigger (Now, 30 days, 3 months, or Custom date)
  5. Click Save


A Needs review tag would appear next to the article slug in the Documentation editor. When team members hover over the 'Needs review' tag, they can view the reason for review (if given)


Clearing a review reminder

Once an article in need of review has been edited and updated

  1. Click the Needs review tag at the top of the article editor
  2. Click Mark as reviewed


The 'Needs review' tag is removed, and the article status indicator is reverted to the updated/draft/new status.

Applying a reminder to multiple articles at a time

Instead of individually applying a review reminder to multiple articles, project admins can apply one reminder to a group of articles.

  2. Enter a name for the reminder
  3. Select how often the reminder will repeat (2 weeks, 30 days, 3 months, 6 months, 1 year)

Once a reminder time interval is set, all the articles selected in the reminder rule will trigger a 'Needs review' action irrespective of their publish date.

    • Select the desired Project version
    • Select the desiredlanguage
