New Release: Customize Mine Results
January 24, 2009
Last evening we released the latest update to CDD, customizable mine results. This release makes it easy to add (or remove) protocols, readouts, molecule synonyms and/or user-defined fields to/from your mine results, allowing you to customize the displayed data to be most relevant. To access this new feature, perform a mine query, then click the new “Select data to display” link on the right above the search results table:
Once you click this link, a panel will open, allowing you to select which protocols, readouts, chemical properties, or molecule fields you want to view (or not view). Clicking and dragging the green four-way arrows reorders the various sections.
The list of Molecule Fields includes molecule synonyms, all user-defined fields in your private group, and all published user-defined fields associated with any of the publicly or privately-shared data sets you’ve selected in the Collaborate Data Sets tab.
One feature we did not provide in this release is a way to save these display preferences. We’d like feedback on what would be most useful here. We have had a couple ideas:
- Save the display options with a saved query, so that next time you run the query, the sections you selected will be displayed in the same order.
- Save the display options for each section so that the next time you perform any search, those sections will have the same readouts/properties/fields displayed. Note that this does not allow you to save the order of the sections, because different sections could be available for different queries.
We’re excited about this small but powerful enhancement. We hope you enjoy using the new functionality, and please email us at [email protected] to let us know how it works for you.
