You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

  1. Stop automatic page reversing

    We have two pages of stocks. When updating EACH file on the second page, file manager auto-reverses to page 1. Very annoying to have to "go back" to page 2 after each one.

    • Consistency in Data Updates

      The update for data and prices should be in the same order on the "Refresh Portfolio" dialog box on the Portfolio page and the "Refresh Data From Data Service" dialog box on the SSG. Please see attached .pdf.

        • Allowing locking of data on an SSG.

          Allowing locking of data on an SSG to prevent accidental updates if more than 1 SSG on a company. Some keep a separate SSG for each addl buy of a co. Locking would prevent accidental updating of that SSG.

            User entered data is now locked on a row-by-row basis.
            We advise that all ‘non-changed’ data is kept unlocked so it is automatically updated (upon a user initiated refresh/update) in the case of a stock split.

          • Under research tab have the sites grouped by type of information being sought.

            For example:
            Research (the heading tab)
            EPS estimates
            ----------------- Yahoo (linked to section with EPS estimates)
            ----------------- Reuter (etc)
            Competitors
            ----------------- Yahoo (linked to section with EPS estimates)

            This would serve to prompt the analyst to go to the better sites to consistently get quality information on the topic of interest.

                Warren Buffett states that when he and Charlie buy common stock for Berkshire they approach the transition as if they are buying into a private business. They look at the economic prospects of the business, the people in charge of running it, and the price they must pay. (see The Essays of Warren Buffett by Lawrence A. Cunningham, Second Edition, p 77) BI does good with teaching about how to in economic prospects and if the price is right, but we need more information on management. How do we research that? Thanks.

                  • For the quarterly data display, move the scroll bar to the bottom of the data grid.

                    pre-select the bottom of the quarterly data table so the most recent data is immediately in view.

                      • Print Notes from the Note Window

                        It would be helpful if the notes could be printed from the note window without having to send them to Microsoft Office Quick Notes or One Note.

                          Notes can be printed to a PDF by appending them to the 2 page SSG report as a 3rd page.
                          To print the Notes, select ‘Print’ , then click on ‘Append Notes’ and then ‘Generate PDF’ and the notes will become part of the PDF. We are planning a new ‘Notes’ tab (rather than a popup) and will consider how printing would work from that screen.

                          When you are in a new study, decide you want to go back to Search and don't want to save the study, it doesn't Abandon. You have to either save the study, or go the Library in order for Abandon to be accepted.

                          • Add a visual divider between FY data and Q data in the EPS Forecast window.

                            Some kind of visual divider between the FY and Q Data for the data displayed on the right side of the EPS Forecast pop-up (PTP Margin, shares outstanding, etc.) would make this data a little easier to read.

                                  • Add "Prices current as of xx/xx/xx" to top of section 3

                                    At the top of Section 3, there is plenty of room on the top line that displays the stock prices. How about adding "Prices current as of: xx/xx/xx". When working on an older study, the original date is shown in the title bar, so it's not necessarily clear that the prices displayed at the top of section 3 are more current than the Study Name/Date.

                                    • When developing reporting make sure it considers reports by portfolio

                                      Toolkit 6 has several good reports and they can be generated by portfolio. Please have SSGPlus have the same.

                                      • Consistency on numbers for R2 on Stock Comparison Guide SCG

                                        The Industry Average for R2 on the Stock Comparison Guide shows as a percentage rather than decimal. I'm assuming that 27.3% for an R2 is equivalent to .273.

                                          Save my preferred columns to display when viewing all of my saved studies. Or better yet have a menu of personal saved displays that can be selected from a drop down (like saving a screen search).
