I know that it secretes potassium and sodium ions into the filtrate but i don't know what else it does. I missed some notes about ADH affected DCT and the level of ions DCT can actively secrete. Thanks.

As far as I know, it secretes potassium and reabsorbs sodium, chloride and calcium. It does do other things, but not to the extent that other parts of the nephron do those things.

ADH mainly acts on the collecting duct, so I wouldn't worry about what it does to the DCT
