  • Every action (Approve or Submit) on Approver presents you a case design rating dialog.

  • You can now select at least one reason for a given case rating from the list of pre-defined reasons, which includes a free-form “Other” field with a text input option.
  • The case rating dialogue consists of questions and reasons. The options presented depend on:
    • Rating
    • The number of CRs sent within primary treatment plan or refinement plan
  • If you are submitting a CR because you have new instructions for the treatment objectives, it is recommended that you select the “I have new instructions” option to better inform the Design Technician.
