Documents results are:

  • Listed in the document trend

Document trend

How do I select multiple Source Shortcuts at once?

Click each pill that applies to your search; or

  1. Go to More Sources

  2. Check and uncheck sources to get your desired results.

How do I read the new document cards in the search results?

Can I sort my results by company or source type?

Yes you can! Simply select the sorting option from the Document Results List and choose the sorting option you'd like to use.

What does all (company name) mentions mean and how do I only see primary ticker?

The default setting for searches will be “All Company Mentions”. However, the company proximity filter and will only show up when executing a ticker search. To change to “primary company only" drill down into the filter.

CPS Primary Ticker

Where can I find the Industry filter, market cap filter, and country filter?

These filters will only show up when searching for keywords only. They will not be visible when running any search that includes a ticker or watchlist.

Why do we default to ALL (Company) Mentions?

This improves the quality of the search by including industry and strategy reports which would otherwise be missed if Primary Ticker was the default.

How do I export PDF summary?
