Creating custom descriptions for Reviewer sessions

The Descriptions tab allows you to define the descriptions that populate the REVIEWSTATUS, CORRECTIONSTATUS, and VERIFICATIONSTATUS fields in the Reviewer table through the Commit to Reviewer Table, Flag Missing Features, Reviewer Correction, and Reviewer Verify dialog boxes. By defining the text for these descriptions, you can target them toward the types of conditions you anticipate in the data you are using. They can also be written to conform to product specification or project requirements.
