- Grant all reviewers admin access to Zencity Engage, allowing them to preview any engagement in draft or active status
- If creating admin accounts for all reviewers is just not possible or you'd simply prefer to avoid the time required to set up (and following the review, remove) accounts for these one-time reviewers, you can move an engagement into a planning review state by following the instructions below:

Overview edit page. The link to share with your team is now
available on your clipboard, to be pasted into any communications
platform that you'd like to use to invite their review.
Clicking that link will open your engagement in a manner when
reviewers can work through each page and view it as if they were a
community member participating in the engagement. They will notice
at the top of the page there is a notification saying 'This
engagement is currently in preview mode and will not be collecting
