Watch the market your own way - introducing custom table views

Watch the market your own way  introducing custom table views

We've launched a big new feature for subscribers today, but unless you are eagle-eyed it could be extremely easy to miss, so we thought we'd expand a bit about it here on the blog. Everyone who really cares about investing has their own favoured set of ratios they use in order to come to a buy or sell decision, but almost every website around offers the same tables full of generic pricing and valuation ratios as default. Often these ratios are of questionable quality and transparency. Surely there's a better way?

Today we've launched an extremely powerful editor that allows subscribers to customise their own set of 8 table views any way they like. These table views are at hand across the whole website - across portfolios, watchlists, custom screens, premium screens, sector tables and so on - allowing for a far more personalised experience all over the site, so it's well worth spending the time editing them.

We've set the views up with some sensible defaults - spanning growth ratios, value, momentum, income and so on - but each of these views can be tweaked, renamed and customised to contentment.


How to edit tables

Our design ethic here is to keep things as simple as possible without compromising on power. When you are viewing a table of data on the site, next to the active 'tab' appears a blue 'edit' button - which is the only indication that we've launched this feature on the site. Clicking the edit button launches the powerful 'Table Editor'.

The Table Editor shows all available columns in folders on the left, while columns currently available in the table view being edited are shown on the right. You can choose to edit any of the 8 available views from the dropdown, and renaming the current view can be done by clicking the 'cog' icon.

Opening the category folders allows any of our library of columns to be added to the view - spanning price quotes, ratios and portfolio columns. Once added the columns can be re-ordered by simply dragging and dropping vertically, or removed by clicking the delete button. If you ever feel you've made a mess of a table, you can always reset to the default by clicking 'Reset to Default' and re-saving.

This is great. Could we also have a blank tab so that we can start from scratch but keep all the standard tabs as they are? Keep up the great work on innovation. Thanks.
