When you are doing research, you often find yourself configuring many of the same view options from question to question. Resetting that each time can be a time consuming and redundant process. To help alleviate the repetition, we are happy to introduce “locking”.
Locking Filter & Weights
When looking at question results, select the “Filter or Weight this Data” tab in the top right of the page. Configure the filter and weighting options, and then using the drop down menu in the bottom right of the Filter & Weighting section, select a locking option.
- Remember filter & weighting settings for this question. Selecting this option will lock in these settings for this question. When you come back to this question in a day, week, or month, these settings will be remembered.
- Remember filter & weighting settings for all questions. Locking these settings for all questions means that the filters and weighting setting that you have applied will be automatically applied to all future questions that you view.
- Don’t remember filter & weighting settings. If you set the filters to not remember your settings, each question you view will have the default filter and weighting settings applied.
In addition to the filters and weighting options, users can also lock their page configurations on the Segments and Compare tabs (and Targets & Networks tabs for CivicScience Publishers).
Locking a subsection allows you to configure the page in any way you like, and then have those configurations remember for the future.
Like the locking options on Filters & Weights, locking a subsection includes the options for remembering at a question level, and across all questions.
