Exploring and analysing information

When you add a document to a collectionA collection is a container for storing and organising ingested files and documents. Only the textual content is stored in collections, not the original files and documents., default information is automatically extracted from it and marked up with coloured labels that represent entity and non-entity classes (for example, email addresses, locations, organisations and people).
