Randomized Assignments help organizations evenly distribute submissions or applications to their reviewers by randomly assigning submissions to a set number of reviewers. This makes it easier for administrators to ensure that each reviewer is assigned the same number of submissions.
To use this feature, follow the steps below:
1. On your Submissions list, select the checkboxes next to the submissions you would like to assign. For example, you may want to filter for Fiction submissions and then select all of the Fiction submissions.
2. Click the Randomized Assignments icon at the top of the Submissions list.
3. In the Randomized Assignments popup window, select how many reviewers you would like assigned to each submission, choose which team members you want included in this review process, and add an optional message to those team members.
4. Click Assign. Your submissions will instantly be evenly and randomly distributed among your selected team members.
Note: If a submission is already assigned to a reviewer before you use Randomized Assignments, the reviewer will remain assigned to that submission. This means that the total number of reviewers assigned to that submission may be more than the number you specify in the Randomized Assignments popup window. To ensure that each submission has your preferred number of reviewers, you'll need to unassign the submissions from all reviewers before using Randomized Assignments.
