Colors provide you with the ability to classify and group tickers according to any classification scheme that is of value to you. Once a ticker is classified by a color, they can be grouped so that tickers with like colors will be displayed together. Colors allow you to paint tickers with different colors, For example Green could mean “Buy”, Red could mean “Sell” and Yellow could mean “Have Concerns”. The meaning of each color you use is up to you. You can also assign your own names to colors to help clarify their meanings.
The screenshot below shows how to access Color when right clicking on a ticker in the Table.
Below is a screenshot of a the table using the red, green and yellow colors. The table is grouped by color.
By default, as you can see when you color a ticker it is only coloring the ticker cell, but as highlighted in the screenshot below you do have the option to “Color Entire Row”.
Below is a screenshot showing the table with the “Color Entire Row” option selected.
You also have the ability to name the colors. When you right click on any ticker in the Table, you will get a menu, where one of the menu items is Color. At the top of the Color sub-menu is an item called Manage Color Names as shown below.
When you click on Manage Color Names, you get the following window.
In the example below we edited a few of the color names to be more descriptive by clicking on the color’s display name:
Green = BuyYellow = CautionRed = SellBlue = HoldCyan = To Research

Now when you right click on Color, you see the new color names as shown below.
The names you select for colors are also used when you group by color in the Table as shown in the screenshot below.

Tags provide you with the ability to classify and group tickers according to any classification scheme that is of value to you. Once a ticker is classified by a tag, they can be grouped so that tickers with like tags will be displayed together.
Tags allow you to give a ticker a specific identifier using words. For example; “Buy at Target” or “Research After Earnings”. The tags you use are completely up to you. Tags can added as a column to any View in the Table. Tickers can also be grouped by tag in the Table.
The screenshot below shows how to access Tag by right clicking on a ticker in the Table.

Comments are more informal than notes. Comments are maintained on a ticker by ticker basis; so you can have a separate set of comments for each ticker you wish to add your thoughts to.
Comments are just text that you type into the Table. You can add the Comments column to any Table View. Then any ticker in the row of the data set you are viewing will display the comments you have entered. You can update or enter new comments directly into the Table for any ticker.
Comments serve as quick notes about a ticker as can be seen in the example below, you can right-click on a ticker to access the Comments box.
Comments can be added as a column in the Table so you can view and edit them directly in the Table as seen below.
The Table allows you to add Notes to any ticker. Notes are similar to comments, but they open in a separate window and allow more space for writing and links. Notes are also time stamped and you can also search, edit and delete old notes. To access notes, right-click on any row or symbol and select Notes.
The Notes window automatically opens for that particular ticker, but you can access other tickers’ note from that same window. If you accumulate a lot of notes for a single ticker, you can use the searchbox to find particular content.
Under the Show All Tickers tab, it will display all the tickers you have notes for. In this option you have the ability to use the searchbox to find content or to search based on a date range. As seen in the screenshot below there is a beginning date but not an ending date, this means to look from the beginning date to the present date.
The Table allows you to set up an alert by right-clicking on any row or ticker symbol and selecting ‘Create Alert’.
Once selected it will bring up the Create Alert window. For further information on creating alerts see Alerts section.
To display the peers of any ticker, right-click on any row or ticker and select ‘Show Peers’, this will then display the peers of the selected ticker in the Table.

To edit an existing link, highlight the link under the ‘Your Links’ section in the Research Links window and click the edit icon next to the link.
