Creating a Reviewer session using geoprocessing

Before any quality assurance tasks take place in your organization, a Reviewer session can be created in a workspace so the data technicians can start the process of validating data.

For example, as an administrator, there may be a series of sessions you want to set up for the data technicians in your organization. In this case, you could use the Create Reviewer Session tool to create sessions for data extents or the types of validation you want to perform on the data.
