Data type

True/false

Recommended or default value

Reviewer's comment required on

  • Approve: False
  • Disapprove: True
  • Hold: True

Details

Approvals are the expected response and typically don't require any additional comment. The decision to disapprove or hold is an unexpected response and the reviewer should provide a reason, unless the change originator and reviewers will always be quite familiar with the issues involved in the decision.

Regardless of how the system rule is marked, a comment can always be added at the reviewer's option.
