Differences in ePADD User Guide and 4.1 installation

0 votes

I noticed that in my 4.1 installation, there are some differences from the screenshots in the online user guide. Instead of a "Sensitive messages" button on the Browse screen, there is a "Data report" button, and when I try to tag restricted messages, I don't see an "Apply" option, only "Apply all". Is this a recent change and the user guide hasn't yet been updated?

Hi Abby,

Occasionally there is a discrepancy between the user guide and the latest release. There were a larger number of changes and it seems several were missed in the documentation. Thanks for letting us know. We'll update these right away.

Edit: User documentation has been updated! Please let us know if you discover anything else that looks amiss!

Hi Josh,

Thanks for the quick reply! So, when tagging messages as restricted in the appraisal module, how to do I just apply to one message, instead of a whole folder? Also, how do I go back and view all the sensitive messages?


Actually, just selecting an action button, or in case of an annotation, clicking outside of the annotation box for a single item, will apply the action or annotation to just that message.

Apply all will apply the action or annotation (or both) to the whole set of messages being reviewed.

You can view all restricted messages either from the export screen, or through the advance search interface.

Edit: The Sensitive Messages option from the Browse menu was a regular expression search, which can now be found under the Lexicon Search option from he Browse menu.



Ah, got it, thanks!
