Updating the correction status for records

When a technician corrects a record in the Reviewer table, it is a two-step process. The problem with the record must be corrected, whether it involves the feature geometry or attribution. Geometry errors can be resolved using the editing tools, and attribution errors can be corrected using the Update tab on the Feature Manager.

Once the record has been corrected, it can be updated with correction information, which includes the evaluation and explanation. The evaluation is the correction status. The explanation is the reason behind the resolution or lack thereof. Custom evaluation and explanation choices can be added to your Reviewer workspace on the Database Properties tab on the Reviewer Session Manager dialog box and used during the correction process. However, there are default options for both the Evaluation and Explanation fields.

Once the correction information is populated, the CORRECTIONTECHNICIAN, CORRECTIONDATE, and CORRECTIONSTATUS fields are updated in the Reviewer table. If you have corrected a series of records that have required the same type of correction, you can update multiple records at once. For example, if you needed to correct attributes for 10 buildings and wanted to update their correction status all at once, you could do so.
