Field Matching for System Assignment

Submissions are assigned to Reviewers  based on the Field Matching.

A Field Match attribute specifies the pair of fields that has to be matched, the importance of the match and how the fields are matched.

Multiple can be added, either with the same or different priority.

The range of allowed overall scores per assignment can be controlled by the Field Match Score attribute (added the same way as Field Match)

The minimum and maximum boundaries are inclusive.

(Overall means the sum of the scores, not considering the priority) 

To add a new Field Matching:

  • Go to Settings
  • Go to Assignment Rules
  • Click Settings for the Assignment Rule - Field Match - Add

First dropdown: matched field from the Submission

Second dropdown: matched field from the Reviewer

Third input: Priority of matching. Optional. 1 - infinity. 1 is the highest
