  • Click Filters.
    • Choose your sorting parameters.
      • Click Apply Filters.

3 Once you find the correct document, click on Show Details [+] to expand the submission. A table will appear showing

  • file name
  • status (whether analyzed or not)
  • significance score and
  • last updated (referring to the last upload date).
