Users can organize, select, search, and manage documents here. The following diagram provides an overview of the screen layout along with a list of functions that can be performed.

Scores are grouped in the key below the chart, from Unscored to Low (0-32), Medium (33-65) and High (66-100)
    NOTE that, as with other Dashboard widgets, hovering the pointer over a truncated label will provide bubble help with the entire label, and hovering the pointer over a bar section will display its value name and the number of documents represented. (Shown below in Dark Mode.)  
    86 - 01b - Documents by Predictive Scores-1
  17. Senders + Recipients – A graph added in Reveal 11.4 adds email correspondents, showing the top five graphically with the number of documents from each and received by each, with remaining email senders and recipients found in succeeding pages of the widget.

  18. Domains - A graph added in Reveal 11.4 adds email domains, showing the top five graphically with the number of unique documents, and the number of documents sent from each and received by each, with remaining email domains found in succeeding pages of the widget. The bars are selectable for search filtering, and the data represented here may be exported. 
  19. Emotional Intelligence - This graph sets out shaded bars of Negativity and Positivity for each category of sentiment in the currently retrieved document set. The shadings, which may be selected with a click to serve as a filter, represent for each emotional category: 
    • Unscored (palest) - documents such as images which offer no text for analysis and scoring.
    • Neutral (0) - documents which are neither positive nor negative, such as numerical spreadsheets or programming code or bland correspondence.
    • Low (1 - 3) - documents scored for mild negativity or positivity.
    • Medium (4 - 6) - documents scored for moderate negativity or positivity.
    • High (7 - 10) - documents scored for high negativity or positivity.

    Clicking on any section will add a pill to the search box to serve as a filter, retrieving only documents in the current set scored within the selected range.

    1. Document count - result of current search or filter (above Results Pane).
    2. List-Grid toggle - change between the results list shown above and a Grid pane opening next to the current Dashboard, Cluster or Heatmap. The split display can be adjusted between the Grid and the Dashboard or other data visualization selected, and these adjustments will be preserved with the User’s project settings. 
    3. Popout - open the Grid or Results List in a separate window that is fully synchronized with folders, filters, updates and searches in the Dashboard screen. This can be particularly useful when using multiple displays to review data.
