Is there a way we can Index a batch into its Proper Format without returning it to FS ??
Returning a batch to Index In Proper Format
Reviewed Image Name: 007944075 // Batch ID: M431-G6P . This review was posted as " no information available ". However, it has 147 names of Civil War Vets, with date of enlistment, assigned units, and other personnel information. It should be Indexed in the correct format. Vital information. I've come across this before and I feel there should be a easier button in pull-down to return such a batch that needs or should be Indexed in the proper format even if it's only one entry. What you have doesn't always work.
I answered this question with the information about how to return a batch for reindexing.
But, this question a little different. Is there a way we can INDEX a batch without returning it to FS?
It is the reviewers responsibility to index anything that wasn't done properly. There are times when something is so badly indexed that the reviewer should return it for reindexing, or perhaps they want to simply use Return Batch and let another reviewer pick up the batch to work on.
If you have a batch that only a few entries need to be indexed, you would use the add entry tool (7th icon from the left). Go to the entry BEFORE where the entry needs to be inserted, click on the icon, select "after current entry", and when you click on Next Image - there is a blank entry to fill in the information.
If you have a batch, that has been marked No, No Extractable Data, but should have been indexed, you would change Step 1: Images from No, No Extractable Data to Yes. Then you would index the entire batch. However, the batch in question should not be indexed per the project instructions.
Reviewing is the same as Indexing - except you have to be more careful, since you could be the final eyes that see a batch prior to it being published. Indexing batches before beginning to review them has been shown to make one a better reviewer. Reading and re-reading to always stay fresh with the project instructions, the field helps, and examples is extremely important when performing either task.
