To approve a decision:

  1. Navigate to the incident decision you need to approve in one of two ways:
    • Click the link provided in your notification email > login to WFDSS > select the pending decision.
    • Login to WFDSS > Incidents > select incident > View Information > Decisions > select the pending decision.
  2. Click Review/Approve Decision. The Decision Content page appears.
  3. To determine if the Reviewers have seen the decision, click View Info button.
    • If no Reviewers are listed, consider contacting the Incident Owner before approving the decision to ensure no reviewers should be assigned.
    • If the decision reviewers are listed, note who they are and when they reviewed the decision.
  4. Click Return to return to the Decision list.
  5. Review the decision content and determine whether or not you agree with the decision. You may choose to print a draft decision .PDF or you may click the View Decision button.
  6. If you agree with the contents of the decision, click Review/Approve Decision. The page refreshes to display Approve Decision and Return for Edits option atop the page. If you are the final Approver, the Publish Decision page appears.
    1. Set the number of days between assessments. For active incidents, you want more frequent assessments.
    2. To receive an email notification that the assessment is due, click the checkbox (you may not see the checkbox if you are the final approver).
    3. Click Publish Decision. The Decision List page reappears, with the message that the decision has been published.
  7. If you disagree, click Return for Edits. A comment dialog box appears.
    1. Enter your comments about why you are rejecting the decision. Be specific and tell the Author/Incident Owner what they need to do to fix the decision content.
    2. Click Return for Edits. The Decision List page reappears, as does a message saying that the decision was returned. The problem needs to be fixed before the decision can be re-reviewed and approved.
    3. Follow up with the Author/Incident Owner. Once the decision is rejected, the problem needs to be fixed before the decision can be re-reviewed and approved.

All Approvers for an incident must approve the decision before it is published.
