Condition > Descriptive > Company > Company Name 8 years, 8 months ago #151

Hi !

I am testing your screener at the moment and wanted to try "Company Name".
There is a problem with it. If selecting this condition, it tooks very long
for the Create Condition box to appear. It tooks so long that I think the Screener
crashed. It is because you collect all Company names into the dropdown menu.

Maybe you find a better solution like, showing the Create Condition box immediately,
and then let the user to select the first letter of the Company name, so you can then
show him a shorter list of stocks as dropdown menu.

Or, if possible, search for a string directly..

It takes a long time because there are a lot of items for it to download to populate the combo select box.

You happened to select a variable that is different for every single company, and therefore has a lot of variation. Very few of the other data points that you can use in a descriptive screen share that characteristic.

If you need to exclude a specific company, the easiest way to do that is to load the full screen, click the company you want to exclude from the results view, and then select the option to remove that company from the screen. That is much faster than trying to exclude company names using a descriptive filter.
