The first step is to accept the activity that has been assigned to you - translation, review, review changes, DTP, project management, and so on. You can accept a single activity or several at once.

Activities dispatched by the Project Manager show in Available status in My Activities - Available. You are generally expected to accept the activity within one day of when the Project Manager dispatches it.

You can only work on an activity once you have accepted it. The status then changes from Available to In Progress.

Check the Activity Details before accepting any activity.

You can accept an activity in two ways:

  1. By clicking the link in the email notification that you are sent
  2. By opening My Activities - Available

From the email notification

The quickest way to accept an activity is to jump directly to the Activity Details from the email notification.
