From your Dashboard, clicking Unreviewed references will bring you to your list of references to review. At the top of this list, there are several filtering options you can use to customize and control the way the references are displayed as you review (i.e. order, specific RefIDs, specific labels).
Selecting any of the options will automatically refresh the list based on what you have specified in the filters. However, for the Advanced Filter, the Apply Filters button must be clicked. DistillerSR will remember your preferences next time you open the screen.
For more information, please refer to Reviewing References in the DistillerSR User Guide.
