Select random sample during dataset creation

Follow

If an archive or bucket is in a specific order (ex., chronological), or is too numerous for human analysis, it is possible to select a random sample during the dataset creation process.

To select a random sample, follow these steps:

1. On your DiscoverText Dashboard, select the project of your choice from Recent Projects, or choose it from the Project drop-down menu on the Navigation Sidebar.
