Errors, Warnings and Recommendations

Errors, Warnings and Recommendations

Learn more about the colors and their meaning

The PDM tool will give you feedback in three categories:
  1. Red = Error = Severe issue (e.g. broken image link, invalid application) --> Fix required
  2. Orange = Warning = Information should be added (e.g. "add attributes") --> Fix recommended
  3. Blue = Recommendation = Possible Data improvement (e.g. Year Range Extension) --> Review recommendation and decide whether it is an improvement
The graph on the Starting Page gives you feedback about how many products need attention at what level.

You will see the three colors throughout the tool which help you to identify gaps and potential to improve your data.
