Applications can be circulated either simultaneously or consecutively. Simultaneous circulation The Reviewers can access the application and make comments at the same time. Consecutive circulation The reviewers can access the application one at a time and in a structured way. The application moves from one reviewer to the next in a sequential manner until it is approved by all the reviewers who are supposed to view the application.
As the application goes through the reviewers, the system tabulates the application as a percentage as it goes through to the next reviewer. When all the reviewers have commented on the application then the system marks it as 100% meaning that all the reviewers have gone through the application and made comments on the comment sheet.
The system is able to select another reviewer in the same department to review the application. Delays are thus avoided in approving or rejecting a submitted application.
If a circulation is not successful, then the application is rejected, and the user of the application can check its status from Application History.
