Updating sampling records

Once the Sampling check has been run on data and the results have been recorded in the Reviewer table, they are assigned a Review status of Needs Review. However, as you manually review the records from the sample, you can update the Review status and the record. When you update the record, you can also update the notes and severity fields in the table. For example, if you have reviewed 10 features from the sample and they are all valid, you can update the review status to indicate that the features have passed the manual review, add comments, and change the severity.


When the review status is changed to Pass, the Verification status is automatically updated to Acceptable.
