Viewing Recently Added References

If you add references to your Citavi project with the Online Search or the Pickers, Citavi adds the new references as an import group. The name of the import group, which cannot be changed, contains the type of import (Online Search, File, or Picker import) and the date the references were added.

Citavi creates up to 25 import groups. Older import groups are automatically deleted. References in older import groups remain in the project – only the group is deleted.

You can use import groups if you later want to add keywords or categories to a group of references you added, if you want to batch add tasks, or if you want to double check the accuracy of the reference information for each source.

2.Click an import group.

3.Citavi displays a selection of references that were added at a specific point in time by you or another team member.
