If you now click on one of the checks in the check set, you will see the definition. The name of the check, the description, whether it runs by default, the result, and the preview of the XML script that runs the check are shown. You can also click on the Edit icon to open the check.

Now you would be able to edit this check. Basically, you are using a filter data grid to generate the required XML script to leverage against the Revit model/database. You will notice that the built-in categories of Revit are used.

Alternatively, you can duplicate the check to create an additional check that is modified to perform some other action, or completely delete the check, in which case it will reside in the unused check area.
