You can set and change status at assignment pages. Besides, at Candidate List page you can adjust any word's status for special reason, such as correcting wrong selections.

More or less you already know or half-know some words in candidate list. To focus on real new words you should select them out at Day 1 and Day 2. This phase is called Skim Known. If you mark a word as known, it won’t appear again in future; if as need-review, it will occur to review per 2 or 3 days from Day 3 to Day 10.
What is Build Words in the app?
Build Words is main phase of GRE Words in 10 Days. It consists of Day 3 to Day 10. Each day you will be given up to 150 new words to learn. (The actually number depends on your finished words previously.)

What is Keep Warm in the app?

Do I have to finish one day's assignment at one time, or in 24 hours?
No. For Skim or Review, each Submit is up to 60 words; for New words, a submit is up to 10 words. So one day's assignment consists of multiple jobs, you can do each of them independently. Besides, you can finish them more than 24 hours, it means you can use 2 or more calendar days for one day's assignment. Of course, you also can do 2 days' jobs in 24 hours. So, you can finish the whole course in 5 calendar days or 20 calendar days based on your paces.
Submit jobs in Skim, Review, and New Words will change word status; Save in Candidate List also change word status. Is there any difference between them?
Yes, they both change word status. At first case the learning or reviewing activities have been saved as well. Built-in algorithms use these activities to select words to review in Build Words and Keep Warm phases. As for saving in Candidate List, no any activity data are kept except status change. So you cannot use Save to replace Submit job.
