Main toolbar commands


The main toolbar of the projects' dashboards provides commands that vary based on the context while other are always available.

Here you can find the description of the commands that are either always available or common to most contexts.

Return to the main dashboard

Select the icon to return to the main dashboard of the application.

Get project information

To get summary information about the project, hover over the information icon .

Switch between tabs

The toolbar contains tabs that correspond to the sections of the project.

The Documents tab is common to all project types except knowledge graph customization and allows you to browse the documents in the current library (or corpus). In categorization, extraction and thesaurus projects the same tab is where annotation activities take place and the results of the last experiment for library documents are shown.

The Resources tab is used to manage project resources. Categorization, extraction and thesaurus projects have it.

The Models tab is used to manage the models generated in the experiments. It is common to categorization, extraction and thesaurus projects.

Other tabs are specific to the type of project, you will find them described in the corresponding sections of this manual.

Manage experiments

The Experiments drop-down is common to categorization, extraction and thesaurus projects. It's a menu whose items depend of the project type and give access to various views on the results of experiments.

Manage libraries

The libraries drop-down is common to categorization, extraction and thesaurus projects. It allows changing the current library and switch to the libraries management view.

Start an experiment

Select Start an experiment to launch the experiment wizard.
The experiment wizard varies based on the type of project, for more information see:

Select Knowledge graph to open and navigate the project's knowledge graph.

Check Tech version status

In complex installations of Platform, it's possible that more Tech versions (one more recent than the other) are installed at the same time, however a project is always based on one Tech version only.

An icon in the main toolbar shows the status of the project's Tech version:

  • Filled background : available and loaded in memory
  • Empty background : available, but not loaded in memory
  • Alert sign : offline, project functionalities are limited
  • Clock sign : expired, project functionalities are limited

A Tech version is not loaded in memory immediately after it has been installed, instead it gets loaded the first time a project activity requires it. It is removed form memory when it's not used for some time.

If the Tech version is offline or expired, a project provides limited functionalities: for example, you cannot upload new documents or run experiments. To fully reactivate the Tech version a maintenance operation is required, ask the installation administrator if you need it.

Open the activity log

The activity log keeps trace of project activities. To open it:

  • For categorization, extraction and thesaurus projects:

    • Select Activity log
  • For corpus and knowledge graph customization projects:

    • Select the Activity log tab

Access project settings

Select Project settings to access project settings.

Check background tasks

Time-consuming operations, such as the training of models or the NLU analysis of documents during upload, are performed as background tasks, so they don't block the user interface of the Web application and you can continue working on other tasks while they are completed.
To check the status of background tasks, select Background tasks, whose icon changes based on background activities:

= No background activity

, , , , = Progress of background tasks

Check notifications

Major installation-wide activities are communicated with notifications. To check them, select Notifications in the upper right corner of the dashboard. Any number displayed in the icon indicates the number of unread notifications.

To open the project to which a notification refers—except in the case of project deletion—just select the notification.
