More Powerful Actions Menu

We have added a much more powerful and context aware Actions Menu to the table. This new Actions menu makes it very easy to select from a wide variety of useful actions in one place when working with the table. When you are viewing the table in Stock Rover, the actions menu is located on the right side in the table’s blue header stripe as highlighted below.

Table Actions Button

The Actions Menu gives you access to a wide variety of tasks related to the table. For example you can update the views of the table. You can export the table data to a spreadsheet. Or you can save the table as a portfolio or a watchlist. You can print the table. You can group the table by industry, sector, tag or color. You can even create custom metrics to add to the views of the table.

The screenshot below shows the menu with the capabilities described above when a folder is selected under World in the Navigation Panel.

In addition to all this, the action menu also gives you quick access to actions on items you have selected in both the left hand Navigation Panel as well as the ticker selected in the table itself. This aspect of the action menu is context specific. The items in the action menu will change depending on what type of item you have selected in the Navigation Panel and if a ticker is highlighted in the table. Additional actions are added when the item you select in the Navigation Panel is a portfolio, watchlist or a screener or a ticker is highlighted in the table.

The screenshot below shows an example of the menu when a ticker is selected when Quotes is selected. Note the addition of a ticker specific menu for the selected ticker, in this case Apple (AAPL).
