Adding Abstract Topic Reviewers to a Group
In order for a person to be included in the drop down list from which topic coordinators can select a reviewer, each reviewer must be added to the proper group. In order to accomplish this, login and go to ADMIN HOME. Then go to MANAGE USERS and then PEOPLE. When the list of all people is displayed, go to the bottom of the screen and type the last name of the person you want to assign as a reviewer in the LAST NAME field at the bottom of the page and then click FIND.
Click on the paper/pencil icon for the person and then click on the GROUPS tab. Here you will select the group, such as 5 | NGCS10 | Topic 2 | Reviewer, where "2" is the topic # that this person will be reviewing. Click OK to save changes. Repeat this process for all reviewers.
