Lock the order of listed companies when switching categories

Jeff Partlow 7 years ago updated by OSV Support 6 years ago 6

For both Stock Database and Screener category headings (Basic, OSV Ratings, Valuations, etc.), lock the current company order list when first accessing a different category. This makes it much easier to view the various metrics in different categories for the same company (or companies) at or near the top of the list.


Hi Jeff,

This was actually applied yesterday. Should be locking based on the default action score now.

Thanks for that adjustment, but what I proposed is slightly different -- It takes it one step further and makes it much, much more flexible and useful for us users.

For example, let’s suppose for one of my screens, I am in the OSV Ratings category and sort the Piotroski column so all the 9 companies come to the top of the list. Then I want to view other metrics (in other categories such as Valuation, Estimates, Solvency, etc.) for those same Piotroski=9 companies. I should be able to do that without the program always automatically switching the list order back to the Action Score order. It is easy for me to manually switch back to the Action Score order if I want to, but what is really helpful is scanning across all the categories and their metrics for a particular sort metric that I choose as important to me. In short, instead of being able to sort on ONLY the Action Score, I would then be able to sort on any column heading metric. How cool (and exponentially more helpful) would that be?

I hope I’ve explained this in a way that is understandable.

Thanks for your consideration.

Good idea. Putting it down on our roadmap.

Would you please explain what the 'roadmap' is? Is it the same or different than when you mark an Idea as 'Planned'?

Is 'roadmap' a list of priorities and the timeline for when you plan to complete them?

When you post replies to the submitted 'Ideas' and 'Bugs', it would be helpful to us if you would also give us some clue as to when you expect to complete them -- for example, within a few days, within the month, this summer, etc.

Thank you for all you are doing.

Yes roadmap means confirmed, same as planned.

I can't provide details of when things are expected to be done because there are so many moving parts. Just have to trust us that we are going for the best improvements :)
