How to start a vote (TC Chairs)

How to initiate an FCD Ballot, DP Vote, ST Audit etc.

Only TC chairs are allowed to start an FCD Ballot, DP Vote, ST Audit etc. To do this TC chairs have to go to the Standards Committee (ST) team on the SKN and fill out a request form. The request form is located in the general channel of that team. Please click on "Service Register" located in the tab menu on top of the screen. Then click on "Request a vote, audit or review".

Clicking the link "Request a vote, audit or review" will open the below form. Please complete the form and provide all necessary information for the ballot, vote or audit. Then click submit. SMPTE HQ will receive your request and will create the ballot, vote or audit for you. The ballot, vote or audit will start automatically at the request start date and the Technology Committee (TC) associated with review will be informed via automatic email.

Please note, project approval reviews are still being initiated through creating a new project in the projects app.
