Work on Team Review Items

Within the Team Review, you can perform a wide range of operations on the posted items and the topics and categories that contain them. These operations include creating an item, replying to a post, password-protecting an item so that it is not accidentally changed, accessing protected items, adding resources to an item, and deleting an item. All of these operations are accessed through the context menu in the Team Review item hierarchy.
