Peer references are now associated with an appointment term in Silversheet. You can specify how many peer references are required for initials and how many are required for reappointments. To do so, navigate to Settings > Peer References.
TIP: If you don't require peer references for a reappointment, go to Settings > Peer References and set the number of required peer references to zero. The Obtain Peer References steps will no longer appear for reappointments, but will be available for initial appointments.
"Obtain Peer References" Step
Credential managers can easily see how many peer references are required for the current appointment.
