  2. Pre-Defined Screens should use the same Criteria as manual entry

    The pre-defined screens use different Criteria that the manual entry for example pre-defined screens use 10 yr Growth numbers for Sales and Earnings and use >10% which is not an option in the drop-down search criteria. Also search criteria use 'EPS R2 5 year greater than 0.9'. Not sure what the cryptic R2 refers to and should be removed and 0.9 and ranges as used in the pre-defined screens dont exist in the manual search. May I suggest that all pre-defined searched use the same search criteria as the user can select to allow a user to enter similar searches…

  4. Allow user to expand the active window both vertically and horizontally.

    Being able to change the vertical and horizontal limits myself and to fit the parameters per my computer setup, would be a big help. Under "My Studies" you cannot see all the columns at the same time.

  5. Integrate more of the info in the "SSG Reference Guide" into the Core SSG tutorial information.

    Consolidate all guidelines into one area so folks don't have to go between a paper reminder and what's online in the tool

  6. Add Company Size to the Company Summary

    Folks have a hard time remember the company size definitions by BetterInvesting. Consider adding company size that to the Company Summary box based on BI definitions

  7. SSGPlus Search return result fields for Sales/Earnings not consistent

    The Sale & Earnings growth figures in the "search results" for some companies are not consistent with the SSG. For example, stock symbol MOS (Mosaic) shows:
    Sales = 56.3 & Earnings = 8.6 from the Search results
    Sales = 2.6 & Earnings = 3.8 on the SSGPlus

    There are others with just a discrepancy in Earnings.

  8. Add the 3 Morningstar grades from the Search Criteria to the SSG

    The Morningstar fields from the Search Criteria are helpful, and would be even more useful if they can be reflected on the SSG...perhaps in the company info, or on the right side or as a pop-up window.

  9. Error in Adding long named file to Portfolio

    If a study is saved with a long file name adding it to a Portfolio is a problem. Cant easily get to the check box.
    To solve this the dialog box must be horizontally scrollable or the file name needs to be truncated or the dialog box needs to be resizable.
    Simplest to to truncate long file names in this dialog box

  10. Create a One Click method to export .SSG , .ITK .PDF files directly to OCA's FILE STORAGE.

    Create a One Click method to export .SSG , .ITK .PDF files directly to OCA's FILE STORAGE.
    this would eliminate the 2 step process of first exporting to download folder, then opening OCA to 'upload'.
    This would be a similar process to the webinar registration's "one click' method to add a webinar to your calendar.

  11. Add a Stock Wish List - A list of Stocks to look further into

    It would be great to:
    0) Create a further review stock list
    1) That list could be a portfolio but stocks in a portfolios require that an SSG has been done. Perhaps The Wish List is better in another new list.
    2) Have a check box in the search tool to add a stock to the further review list.
    3) Enter a table of stocks (from a comma separated text list) that have been found outside of the SSG into the further review list
    4) Add a quick preview Data for like one in the stock screen search list.

  12. Add a sorting indicator on the PDF copy of the PERT report

    The PDF copy of the PERT report does not indicate what column the report is sorted on, nor the sorting order. Could something be added to a header or footer that shows what column the report is sorted on, and in what order?

  14. Add an option to the FILE menu to allow for "Add to a Portfolio"

    When completing a study that we want to add to an existing portfolio or watch list, it would be helpful (and simpler) if the user could do that directly from the study, instead of having to return to the list of portfolios and then edit the portfolio to add the stock.

  15. Date stamp for SSG study date/update.

    Add a date stamp to portfolio display that shows when I last updated an SSG study, i.e. change judgement, so that I know how old my study is. The current Modified Date changes with price and data updates and does not reflect when I last studied the SSG.

  16. Show which companies have new data since my last data update.

    One helpful feature of Toolkit 6 is that it shows which companies have updated data since my last data update, i.e. companies that have had quarterly earnings releases. That indicates which companies I need to re-study. Otherwise, it is not evident which companies need re-study.

  17. Enhance PDFs to show all plots.

    When I make a PDF to print or share, extra plots, such as dividends or shares outstanding, are eliminated. It would be greatly beneficial to maintain all plots and their positional relationships as I have them in the SSG Plus graph.

  18. Make labels more descriptive

    It would be helpful if some of the labels were updated to make them more descriptive, so we don't have to guess or reverse engineer the numbers to figure them out.

    For example: in the Fundamental Company Data section, user has no way of knowing just by looking at the table if the column labeled "Forecast (%)" is an annual forecast or is it the forecast for 5 years in total?

    In section 3, it says "High this year" and "Low this year". Does that mean the calendar year, or is it a TTM time period? (plus it would be…

    It is hard to compare what I have entered and what the member sentiment is averages are. Is there a way to keep the pop-up member sentiment visible while I review and edit my entries.

  20. Suggest only One Tool

    I know way to much energy explaining the difference and frankly the difference is not worth the time and effort spent. May I recommend that there be only one tool that is continually improved. Perhaps there is 2 modes expert and newbie.
