Reviewer Role

The Reviewer role within EdApp is a role suited to those reviewing content that may not be ready to be published, or made available to learners yet. 

What does this role mean?

Users granted this permission are able to view all courses and lessons in the app assigned to them – they can bypass prerequisites and unlock dates, and view courses and lessons that are set to draft.


How to enable the Reviewer role:

Step 1: Navigate to the 'Users' page and click on an individual username, or click edit on the right.

This can be found under the user pane. 



Step 2: From there, scroll down to the various role settings at the bottom of the user profile page. 


Step 3: Tick the box next to the Reviewer role and hit save to enable it.


What does it look like to have the Reviewer role enabled?

There is a difference in how the course page will look for those with the Reviewer role enabled.

Since you can see all content assigned to you as a Reviewer, we’ve added messaging to the course to let you know if it’s drafted, published, or made available only during a certain time frame.

For example, the screenshot on the left here will show you what a course page looks like for a user with the Reviewer role ticked. While the image on the right, is a regular learner with access to the same content.

Why is this role useful?

This role is useful if you want a user to review content before learners are able to see it or before you’ve published it. For example, if you need a stakeholder or legal team to approve of a course before it goes live, and you don’t want to change any of the calendar date restrictions or publish the course yet.
