Once you’ve finished working on a project in-app, there’s a workflow for creating Countfire’s output files and verifying accuracy:
1) Process the project
2) Receive the output files via Dropbox
3) Check the accuracy reports
Countfire creates 3 types of accuracy reports:
It’s important to review all of these documents before relying on the Excel spreadsheet.
In particular, it is essential to review the check sheets on every project.
4) Correct any mistakes
While you’re reviewing the accuracy reports, you may encounter a mistake that needs correcting.
Mistakes generally fall into five categories:
- Missed symbols.
- Partially matched symbols.
- Selections that aren’t clean.
- Selections made under the wrong symbol description.
- False positives.
5) Repeat steps 1–4
Depending on how clean your selections are, you may need to repeat steps 1–4 more than once to ensure everything is correct.
6) Rely on the Excel spreadsheet
Only after you’ve completed the above steps should you rely on the quantities within the Excel spreadsheet.
