Basic Document Review Configuration
To take advantage of the document approval and collaboration features, these tools must first be enabled for the project. Navigate to the 'Project Settings' tab and open the 'User Access' section.
Select one or more document reviewers for the project. Note that document reviewers differ from overall draw reviewers. Click 'Save Changes'.
Collaborate on a Document Using the 'Approve', 'Review', and 'Comment' Tools
For most Rabbet users, multiple people need to access and review supporting documents during the draw packaging cycle. Rabbet provides maximum flexibility to users when collaborating on documents through a variety of document actions.
Approve - a document reviewer may have the ability to offer final "approval" for an invoice or supporting document depending on their reviewer settings (see below).
Review - this button allows you to signal to other document collaborators that you have completed your work and review of the invoice.
Add Comment - comments can be added to documents so that you can record and communicate important information about the invoice or other supporting documents.
Collaborate on a Document Using the 'Assign To' Function
The 'Assign To' function facilitates document collaboration by allowing you to assign the review of a document to a colleague after you have completed your work.
For example, User A is responsible for adding a documents to Rabbet and assigning that document to the budget line item. User B wants to review the supporting document for the draw before it is shared with any outside parties. User A should "assign" the document to User B after it has been upload.
Navigate to the 'Documents' tab within the draw. Click on the document that needs to be reviewed by your collaborator.
Inside the document assignment modal, click on the 'Assign To' button. Select the user that next needs to access and review this document.
Once you have assigned documents to a colleague, you can easily send them a notification with an optional message to get their attention.
Any document reviews assigned to you will also appear on the portfolio dashboard when logging into Rabbet.
Configure Document Approval Permission
Many Rabbet customers have internal authority controls for invoice management and draw packaging. Rabbet facilitates and provides a system of record for those controls through user permission settings. For example, the development manager has authority to approve invoices <$50k. Invoices greater than >$50k must be approved by the director of development.
Updates to user permission can ONLY be made by the system administrator. Navigate to the 'Admin' portal in your Rabbet account.
Click on the name of the user to open a slideout on which his or her document approval authority can be adjusted.
Toggle the 'Approve Documents' permission ON/OFF. Also provide full or limited (by $ amount) document approval authority. Click 'Save'.
