I have completed a number of entries over the last few days & they are showing in 'My Batches, it says that they are due by 19 & 20th Nov but I don't know how to return them, can anyone help please?
I wonder if you really want to "return" those batches or if there is a terminology issue (e.g. batches versus entries). Below are some indexing terms and their definitions. If you do want to return any or all of your batches, you can click on the Manage button just beneath the My Batches heading and you will get to click on the ones you want to return. There is no rush since your batches don't expire for a week or so.
What you see in My Batches is a list of the batches you have checked out, possibly worked on, but haven't completed and submitted. Maybe you're having difficulty submitting the batches, perhaps because of extra blank entries or other reasons. Pick one of the batches you've worked on and copy/paste the code at the end of its name - looks like [XXXX-XXX] - so that we can look at it and help you figure out what is happening. Thanks.
Batch: A batch is a small part of a project. Projects contain up to hundreds of thousands of historical document images. To facilitate indexing, projects are broken down into batches of up to 10 images. Batches are checked out by volunteers who index them, while other volunteers review the work of indexers.
Record: A record is information about an event, such as a birth, marriage, or death, from a historical document. A record is not to be confused with an entry, which is information about the record that has been entered into the indexing program.
Entry: An entry is information about a record from a historical document that has been entered into the indexing program. An entry is often required for each person mentioned in a historical record. An image may show more than one record of an event. For example, an obituary may mention the name of the deceased as well as give a list of relatives, or a church record may show several marriages on one document.
Field: A field is a named box or cell for entering information in the data entry area. Some fields require information be entered and are marked with an asterisk after the field name.
Required Fields: Required fields are fields that must have information entered into them or they must be marked blank before the batch can be submitted. Required fields are marked in the data entry area with an asterisk. These fields may not be hidden.
