Review contains a special field Review Notes where reviewers can enter their notes or comments. These notes are commonly entered in the Notes pane of the Document Review screen.

This field is created with the Project by default. 51 - 01 - Reviewer Notes Field-1


This field can be edited while coding documents or through bulk tagging.

  1. Review Coding

    In Document Review the Notes pane allows reviewers to enter searchable comments (see below) about the document under review. 
    51 - 02 - Enter Reviewer Note
  2. Bulk Tagging

    Using Reveal's searching and filtering tools, documents may be grouped as tags or folders, or bulk coded by adding text to Notes or other updatable fields. See Bulk Tagging Documents for further discussion. 51 - 03 - Reviewer Notes Bulk add-1
