Team Review Tools

The Enterprise Architect Project Team Review facility can be used to discuss the development and progress of a project.

To access the Team Review, either:

  • Select the View | Team Review menu option, or
  • Press [Ctrl]+[Alt]+[U].


The Team Review facility has three main displays:

  • The Team Review window is used to create new Categories and Topics and to delete messages, using a context menu. This is a dockable window. Each item in the hierarchy displays a mouse-over tooltip, showing the item title, the author's name and the date and time the item was created.
  • The Team Review tab, in the main work area, is used to view, print, create, edit, and reply to review Posts. This tab has a status bar that shows the item author's name, the date and time the item was created, and the date and time the item was last modified.
  • The linked objects panel, located at the bottom of the Team Review tab, is used to associate model elements, diagrams, external files and other postings, with a review posting.

You can create text to explain Categories and Topics, and you can create and respond to Posts and replies. To display or edit the text on the Team Review tab, click on the item name in the Team Review window.

Using the Search icon in the Team Review toolbar, you can also search for text strings in the item titles, to enable you to locate posts on a specific topic.

As well as linking elements and diagrams to a Post, you can also add resources to a Category, Topic or Post. Such resources, which include diagram images and XMI files of packages, are held in a Resources folder under the selected Team Review item.

The icons beside the review items have the following meanings:


Post read


Post unread


Reply read


Reply unread


Category (name in bold indicates category is unread)


Topic read


Topic unread


Resources folder for a Category, Topic or Post


Diagram or clipboard image within Resources folder


XMI File of package, within Resources folder.
