Review Assistant includes a set of tools, that allow to analyze report results as well as to make the report data meet certain criteria.
Filtering allows to display a subset of the records in the report table that meet a particular criteria. When filtering is applied to a table, displayed records are restricted to those that meet the current filter criteria. To filter data against single or multiple columns, select a column’s value from the filter drop-down list box.
With Filter Editor, you can create complex filters containing multiple conditions. To open Filter Editor, click the Edit Filter button.

You can sort data against a column in descending or ascending order. To start sorting column records, right-click a column and then select Sort Ascending or Sort Descending from the shortcut menu.
The column’s current sort order is indicated by the sort glyph (a small arrow displayed at the column header’s right edge). If data is sorted in ascending order, the sort glyph represents an up-arrow. When sorting in descending order, the sort glyph is displayed as a down-arrow. If the column isn’t sorted, the sort glyph is hidden.
To clear sorting against a column, click Clear Sorting on the shortcut menu.
When grouping is applied to a report, the records are re-arranged to meet the current grouping settings. To group the report data by a certain column, right-click a column header, and then click Group By This Column.
To group report data by several columns, right-click any column, and then click Show Group Panel on the shortcut menu. Then, drag the required columns to the panel. The following screen-shot shows the Code Coverage report, grouped by the Author and Date columns.
