Once you have created a review, you can start editing your document. First, select one of the annotations from the panel on the right. This will expand to provide you with more information about the rule that has triggered and what action to take.

If available, clicking 'learn more' will show more information about why that content was highlighted.

To hide an annotation, click the 'dismiss' button in the bottom right of the annotation (it looks like a trash can).

Once you've found the content, the next step is updating it to remove the compliance risk.

Once you edit the content as per the feedback, you can resync the highlights by clicking the 'Review again' button at the bottom of the panel.

Tip! The Review Again option won't be visible unless you have made changes to the document.

Tip! To see annotations you have dismissed, click the 'more options' dropdown in the header menu, then click 'Show history'.
