Clearing Issues

An issue can be cleared after it has been addressed in the client file, document, or on a line within a document.

  • If Protection is activated and you did not create this issue, you require the File rights, Modify issues created by other users, to perform this operation.

This procedure can be performed from the Document Manager or the Issues pane.

To clear an issue from the Document Manager

Tip: Enable the Uncleared Issues column using the Reorder Columns command on the Document Manager to see all uncleared issues.

  1. Open the Document Manager.

  2. Identify documents with uncleared issues.

  3. Review the issue details and, if applicable, the corresponding documentation.

  4. If the issue was addressed, then click the uncleared issues icon to access the document properties.

  5. Clear the issue by checking the checkbox next to the issue.

  6. Click OK.

To clear an issue from the Issues pane

  1. Open the Issues Pane.

  2. Click the Uncleared Issues tab.
  3. Check the checkbox next to the applicable issue to clear it.

The issue is cleared immediately from the list:

  • The uncleared issues icon is removed () from screen or decremented by one if the number is two or greater.

  • The issue is removed from any views that filter on uncleared issues. For example, the Uncleared Issues view.

Generally, in a review workflow, once all issues are cleared it marks the end of the review.

  • The clear issue checkbox is disabled if you did not create the issue or do not have sufficient rights to clear that issue.
