For organizing the work amongst collaborators, we suggest two different methods:
- Divide your review into groups of citations and then label each group differently. Labelling can be easily done with the keyboard (shift+arrow down and then label). You can then assign each collaborator to work on a group with a specific label. However, this would mean that you can't turn blind mode on since labels are per user and won't be visible to collaborators.
- Divide your set of references into different files or searches and upload these files to Rayyan. They will then be listed under the Search methods box. You can then ask each group of collaborators to work on a specific search. The .gif below shows how this can be done.
You could also filter by the Minimum/Maximum collaborator decisions (found on the left panel) to list which articles needs to be reviewed based on your constraints, while keeping the blind on. Some use cases where the Minimum and Maximum collaborator decisions facets can be used are:
- If you filter by At most 1 in the Maximum collaborator decisions box, this will show all the articles that have 1 or 0 decisions.
- If you filter by At least 1 in the Minimum collaborator decisions box, this will show all the articles that have 1 or more decisions.
- You can also use at least and at most filters in the Minimum and Maximum collaborator decisions facets together to get the articles that have exactly one decision. To do this, you would need to filter by at most 1 and at least 1.
However, to show concurrent decisions by other collaborators you may need to deselect/select the at least/at most filters. In addition, delays may cause these counts to be outdated for a little while.
