  2. Assignments directed specifically to you or generated by AI-Driven Batches appear in folders directly under Assignments
  3. Click on the ## Available link next to ASSIGNMENTS to open the Assignments screen. The number indicates the number of assignments that are not yet checked out or completed for any of your current tag profiles in the project.

Your directly-assigned batches and AI-Driven Batches will also be displayed under the Batches tab.
