How can I add a transition review?

When adding a transition review on the “Add Review” button, you can choose between two types: 
  1. Transition Review (Previous GS VER to GS4GG) 
  2. Transition Review (GS CDM to GS VER)

When adding a preliminary review that has a transition scheme, a disclaimer will remind you to select an option from the create project box.

In the case the transition scheme is other than NONE, the required documents of the preliminary review will be different.
