As soon as you upload a new search to Rayyan, it will trigger a duplicate detection algorithm on all of your articles in the current review. After few minutes, Rayyan will display a special icon beside each article that has a possible duplicate. When you expand the details for those articles, you will have the option to accept the duplicate and delete it, or reject it and keep it as a separate article. Afraid of making mistakes? No worries, we all do mistakes. You can always undo any correction you have made to duplicates.

How do I undo the deletions? It seems that the wrong duplicate was deleted!

I have the same problem.

According to the previous post by Admin, there must be a button to undo, but I cannot found it where it must be.

We're working on putting back the undo button for deletions. A workaround would be put these entries alone in one reference file (with a format accepted by Rayyan) and then add them back to the review.  You can also get such a file by exporting only the deleted entries but the file you get may also contain entries you don't want to undelete. In which case, you'll need to remove them manually.

Any update on the undo button for mistakes when de-duplicating? The above post was 2 years ago - there does not appear to be an undo button yet.

Thank you!
