Use one of these web browsers to sign in to Articulate 360, then click the Review 360 card. You’ll see a dashboard, like the one below, where you’ll manage your e-learning projects and stakeholder feedback. A card appears on your dashboard for each project you publish to Review 360. Each card displays a project title, the most recent publish date, an icon indicating what type of project it is, and a hover menu with several options for managing the project (details below).
Before you can invite stakeholders to review your projects, you need to upload or publish them to Review 360. Here's how:
How to Upload Videos to Review 360
You can upload video files to Review 360. Just go to your Review 360 dashboard and click the "upload a file" link at the top of the page.
How to Manually Upload Storyline 360 Courses to Review 360
Visit this user guide for how to manually upload Storyline 360 courses to Review 360.
How to Quickly Publish Projects Directly to Review 360
Check out these user guides for instructions on publishing projects to Review 360 from:
- Storyline 360
- Rise 360
- Presenter 360
- Quizmaker 360
- Engage 360
- Replay 360
- Peek 360 for Windows
- Peek 360 for Mac
- Triggers and player tabs that exit the course won't work in Review 360. However, they'll work in browsers that allow tabs to close programmatically when your published output is hosted on a web server or LMS.
- Landscape-only and portrait-only restrictions in Storyline 360, Presenter 360, Quizmaker 360, and Engage 360 projects won’t work. Content always rotates with the Review 360 interface so stakeholders have a consistent experience when adding feedback.
- When you switch from the review tab to the feedback tab and back again, the project you’re viewing picks up where you left off. However, the resume feature in Storyline 360, Presenter 360, Quizmaker 360, and Engage 360 projects won’t work. This means when you close a project in Review 360 and then return to it later, it will start over from the beginning.
After publishing a project to Review 360, invite stakeholders to review it and post their feedback.
- From your dashboard, hover over a project, click the ellipsis (…) menu that appears, and choose Share. Or, open a project, click the ellipsis (…) menu in the upper right corner of the screen, and choose Share. You’ll see this dialog box.
- If your reviewers don’t have Articulate accounts, mark the box to Allow users without Articulate IDs to comment. Reviewers will be prompted to enter their email addresses so you can identify their comments and they can receive discussion notifications.
Stakeholders don’t need to sign in to Review 360 to review a project, but we recommend signing in with an Articulate ID for the best experience. For example, reviewers who sign in can see badges for unread comments and change their email notification settings. If you’d like to encourage your reviewers to sign in, ask them to create a free account here.
- If you want to password-protect your project for additional security, mark the box to Set a password and enter a password in the field that appears. You can turn off the password at any time simply by unchecking the box. (Only the project owner can add and remove passwords.)
- Copy the shareable link from the dialog box and send it to your reviewers. Be sure to give them the password if you added one. And if your reviewers have never used Review 360 before, feel free to share this user guide on how to review a project.
Having trouble finding a specific project? Use the search field in the upper right corner of your dashboard to quickly find projects by title or date—for example, onboarding or November 2. The search results dynamically update as you type.
You can perform a search from any folder on your dashboard. Review 360 always searches all your projects in all your folders (except deleted items).
Use the product filters in the upper right corner of the screen to easily find what you’re looking for. Filter your projects for Storyline 360, Rise 360, Studio 360, or video projects, as shown below. Video projects include Peek 360 videos, Replay 360 videos, and video files that you’ve uploaded to your account.
You can filter your entire Review 360 dashboard, the contents of a specific folder, or your search results. When you select a product filter, it remains active as you switch folders and enter new search terms. To remove a filter, select All Formats from the list of product filters.
Use folders to organize your projects and quickly find what you need. Just click New Folder in the sidebar to create folders. Then move projects to folders by hovering over them, clicking the ellipsis (…) menu that appears, and choosing Move to. Click here to learn all about using folders in Review 360.
Delete projects when you’re done with them, but don’t worry! You can always restore them if the need arises. They’ll remain in your Deleted Items folder until you permanently delete or restore them.
How to Delete a Project
Hover over a project, click the ellipsis (…) menu that appears, and choose Delete. You’ll be prompted to confirm that you really want to delete it.
When you delete a project, it moves to the Deleted Items container in the sidebar. To permanently delete it from your account, go to Deleted Items, hover over the project, click the ellipsis (…) menu that appears, and choose Delete forever.
To permanently remove all your deleted items at once, hover over the Deleted Items container in the sidebar and click Empty.
How to Restore a Project
To restore a deleted project, go to the Deleted Items container in the sidebar. Hover over the project, click the ellipsis (…) menu that appears, and choose Remove from trash.
If the project was in a folder when you deleted it, the project is restored to that same folder (unless the folder itself has also been deleted). Version history and feedback remain intact, so the project looks exactly like it did when it was deleted.
You can’t open or view a project while it’s in the Deleted Items folder. You’ll need to restore it before you can open it.
Easily rename and duplicate projects right from your Review 360 dashboard.
How to Rename a Project
Hover over a project, click the ellipsis (…) menu that appears, and choose Rename. Give your project a new name and click Save.
How to Duplicate a Project
Hover over a project, click the ellipsis (…) menu that appears, and choose Duplicate.
Duplicate a project when you need to share it with a different group of stakeholders or just need to start fresh. The new project won’t have any comments or version history from the original project.
Want to host videos in your LMS to track learners’ progress? Review 360 makes it so easy to export your video projects as LMS packages.
- From your dashboard, hover over a video project, click the ellipsis (…) menu that appears, and choose Export to LMS. (You can also open a video project, then click the ellipsis (…) menu in the upper right corner of the screen and choose Export to LMS.)
- When the export settings appear, choose one of these LMS standards: AICC, SCORM 1.2, SCORM 2004, or Tin Can API (xAPI).
- Enter the percentage of the video that learners must watch for it to be marked complete in your LMS. The default is 80%, but you can choose any percentage between 1 and 100.
- Click Export to finish the process.
Only video projects can be exported as LMS packages from Review 360. To publish Storyline, Rise 360, and Studio courses for LMS distribution, see these user guides:
You can download MP4 files of your video projects. From your dashboard, hover over a video project, click the ellipsis (…) menu that appears, and choose Download. (You can also open a video project, then click the ellipsis (…) menu in the upper right corner of the screen and choose Download.)
You can’t download Storyline, Rise 360, or Studio courses from Review 360.
To learn all about working with comments, see our user guide on how to review a project. It’s also a great resource to share with your stakeholders.
There are times when it’s helpful to turn off comments for a project. For example, you might not want reviewers to continue posting comments after the project is finished and approved. Just open the project, click the ellipsis (…) menu in the upper right corner of the screen, and choose Disable Comments. Here’s what happens when comments are disabled:
- The sidebar disappears from the review tab, and the feedback tab disappears altogether.
- If the project already had comments, you won’t be able to read them unless you export them to a report.
- If you enable comments again later, all pre-existing comments will reappear. (Re-enable comments by clicking the ellipsis (…) menu in the upper right corner and choosing Enable Comments.)
Export comments from a project for analysis, backup, or regulatory requirements. Here’s how.
- Click a project on your dashboard to open it.
- Click the ellipsis (…) menu in the upper right corner of the screen and choose Export Comments.
- Use the Comment Order drop-down list to choose how you want to organize comments in your report.
- Choose either CSV or PDF from the Export Format drop-down list.
- Click Export and choose where you want to save your report.
All comments for all versions of the project get exported to a single report.
Create new versions of Review 360 projects to keep track of revision history. To create a new version, simply republish a project or manually upload it.
To see an older version of a project, open it in Review 360, click the Version drop-down list in the upper left corner of the screen, and select a version number.
Comments roll forward with each new version, so you’ll see comments for the version you selected and all versions before it. To see the latest comments, switch to the current version of the project.
You can’t add, edit, delete, resolve, or reopen comments in previous versions of a project. Switch to the current version to perform these tasks.
As the project owner, you’ll receive instant email notifications for all comments on all your projects. The good news is you can change your notification settings, including how often you receive emails.
How to Limit or Mute Notifications for a Project
By default, you’ll receive email notifications for all comments on a project, but you can limit or even mute comments. Here’s how.
- Click a project on your dashboard to open it.
- Click the ellipsis (…) menu in the upper right corner of the screen and choose Project Notifications.
- Choose one of these options:
- Your Activity triggers email notifications only when someone replies to your comments or @mentions you.
- All Activity triggers email notifications for all comments and replies on this project. This is the default setting for project owners.
- Mute Project never sends email notifications.
- Click outside the notification settings menu to close it.
How to Change the Frequency of Email Notifications
By default, you’ll receive email notifications instantly, but you can reduce the frequency to hourly or daily.
- Click your profile icon in the upper right corner of the screen and choose Notification Settings.
- Choose how often you want to receive email notifications: Instantly, Hourly, or Daily.
- Click outside the notification settings menu to close it.
Email frequency is a global setting that applies to all your Review 360 projects (except projects you've muted).
