Writing selected features to the Reviewer table

Features that are selected either inside or outside an edit session can be written to the Reviewer table from the Feature Manager. Using the Commit To Reviewer Table command, you can write groups of selected features, or all of them, to the Reviewer table as new records. For instance, if you notice that features have not been digitized correctly based on their real-world locations, you can write them to the Reviewer table so they can be updated.

When the features are written to the Reviewer table, the CHECKTITLE and ORIGINCHECK fields indicate that the features are from the Feature Manager.
