Committing records to the Reviewer table from the map

You can manually commit records to the Reviewer table. You can select a feature in the map and click the Commit To Reviewer Table button. This allows you to capture errors that might be found from other methods of analysis like visual review, using the results of queries or any tools, like geoprocessing, that run in ArcMap and return selected sets of features.

When this method is used, you can also add notes related to the record and assign it a severity, which indicates the importance of the record. The lower the number, the greater the priority.

  1. Start ArcMap.
  2. On the main menu, click Customize > Toolbars > Data Reviewer.
  3. Start a Reviewer session in one of the following:
  4. Select a single feature in the map.
  5. Click the Commit To Reviewer Table button Commit to Reviewer Table on the Data Reviewer toolbar.

    If you select more than one feature, a message notifies you that only one feature can be selected.

    The Commit to Reviewer Table dialog box appears.
