Remove and Recover Items from a Review 

With this release, review moderators can remove and recover items from active reviews without altering the project source. 

  • When you pair these actions with the Approval workflow, those items remain in their original state and aren't updated when the review is finalized. 

  • When an item is removed from the review and the review is republished, the item in the corresponding baseline is also removed. 

When items are removed, you can't:

  • Access Single Item View from the review

  • Approve, reject, or add comments

  • Edit the item

To Remove Items from a Review:

  1. In the review, select the triangle drop-down menu next to the items you want to remove, then select Remove.

     The "Tagged for removal label" appears.  

2. Publish a new revision to remove the items from the review.

A label appears with the version the item was removed in. 

To Recover Items in a Review:

  1. In the review, select Recover to recover the item you removed. 

       The "Tagged for recovery" label appears.    

   2. Click Publish new revision to recover the item. 

Usability Improvements

  • When a user with read-only permissions selects an item from List View or Reading View, they no longer see the Reuse button. 

  • When you reopen a saved and released Trace View, previously selected items are now saved. 

  • The Export drop-down menu has a new design and language pattern.


  • The Add drop-down menu now includes a plus icon. 

  • In List View or Reading View, the text for the "number of selected items" has been updated.


Updates from Customer Feedback

  • With this release, exporting using Velocity PDFs now support additional languages. Prior to this release, if users authored content in Jama Connect in Japanese, Chinese and Korean, it was not exportable to Velocity PDF. 
    • The following languages are now verified as supported: Chinese, Albanian, Polish, Hindi, Portuguese, Punjabi, Armenian, Azerbaijani, Russian, Igbo, Serbian, Japanese, Korean, Kurdish, Latvian, Lithuanian, Macedonian, Thai, Vietnamese, Georgian, Marathi, Greek, and Norwegian. 

      *Velocity PDF exports cannot translate languages.
