Auditing Metadata
Concept Procedure Quick Reference

The Metadata Editor has an auditor to help you comply with the metadata standard you are using. The auditor marks empty required fields with auditing symbols that look like caution signs .

These symbols also appear on the tabs along the left side of the Metadata Editor to indicate errors in that section. If no auditing symbol is displayed on a tab, the auditor found no errors in that section.

Once an acceptable value is entered into the field, or other fields in the same field group, the auditing symbol will not be displayed the next time you click Audit.
