Needs Review is a status that is assigned when a Reviewer declines an Experience or their time to approve expires.
This article will walk through the steps you need to take to restart the process as a Career Services user, so that ultimately the experience can be approved on time!
Indication the process has been halted
If you see any Experiences that have been updated to Needs Review, it means it requires some sort of action/management from a Career Services staff member.
The number of Experiences in the Needs Review status will be indicated on the Experiences list page. The reason that the Experience is in the Needs Review state is also listed in the Reason column.
How to manage the process once it has been halted
- Select an individual Experience that Needs Review
- Navigate to the Approvals tab
- Review the Approver that declined or expired, you have a few options for how to proceed: decline the Experience, Restart the Approvals or manually update the Approver status (as a Career Services user)

Restart the Approvals
