    • Next document, skipping fully classified documents - A document is considered fully classified if all metadata fields contain data. This will bring you to the next document that has not been classified or is partially classified. 

    • Next document, skipping partially classified documents - A document is considered partially classified if not all metadata fields contain data. 

    • Next document - This will take you to the next document in the Documents area.
