Reviewing test artifacts

When you are assigned to review or approve a test artifact, such as a test plan, test case, or test suite, you receive a notification in the My Reviews widget on your Home page. You can open the artifact and then review, approve, or reject the artifact. You can also review the artifact while browsing a list of test artifacts.
