This article provides a detailed description of all the features and options associated with Reveal’s Dashboard.

Non-Audio Video Tutorial

The Dashboard is the first screen that opens when a project or its Review button is selected. 

The Dashboard is the control center of Reveal 11; project data, visualizations, filters, search, and analytical tools are all available on this screen. Users can organize, select, search, and manage documents here. In Reveal 2024, the browser tab name reflects the current page, showing project and screen (e.g., Review – Product Education – Reveal); selecting a document from here will open a new Document Review tab labeled with the document’s Begin Number.

The following diagram provides an overview of the screen layout along with a list of functions that can be performed. 

NOTE that Users may specify the display and order of Dashboard widgets under User Settings.

      2. Known Issues with a link to the current Known Issues list.
    2. Documentation provides a link to the Reveal knowledge base in place of the former Help documentation button. 
    3. Training takes the user to Reveal Academy to view training and certification courses.
    4. Support provides access to Reveal Support in place of the former Support button.

Scores are grouped in the key below the chart, from Unscored to Low (0-32), Medium (33-65) and High (66-100); the Low, Medium and High legends at bottom may also be selected
    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
  19. Senders + Recipients – This graph shows email correspondents, starting with 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. The bars are selectable for search filtering, and the data represented here may be exported (shown here in light mode display).  
    18 - 04 - Senders Recipients Domain widgets-2
  20. Domains - This graph lists email domains from the top five busiest in the current result set, showing 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.  
  21. Emotional Intelligence - This graph sets out shaded bars of Negativity, Positivity and other attributes 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.

    86 - 01c - Emotional Intelligence-1


  22. Results Pane - The Results Pane opens at the right of the Dashboard display when there is a search or filter active. It presents the following information, shown here in light mode: 
    18 - 03 - Dashboard - Results pane annotated-3

    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. 
    4. Expand - toggles the Grid or Results List between a full display panel and the default split display. 
    5. Hide Results Pane – toggles between display and collapsing of the Results List or Grid.

    7. Sort by - metadata field of choice; default is Search Score.
    8. Document card and label - Card contains a label for Original, Duplicate or Near Duplicate, its Begdoc (document control number), the subject line or title if any, a brief snippet of text, and in the lower left shows how many threaded documents or tags are currently associated with this document.
    9. Cluster wheel locator - opens the Cluster Wheel visualization to show the document's cluster location.
    10. Attachments - indicator with number of attachments for this document.
