Ideas for Arc XP

Change the defaults on the WebSked - Stories search

Every time I need to search for an article in WebSked - Stories I must 'reset search', change the direction to 'reverse chronological' and possibly move the search back farther than 'today'.

Can you change the defaults so that I don't need to 'reset search', make it always 'reverse chronological' and allow searches to be always 'past 7 days'.

    Thanks for the tip. It does work , but only when first opening up WebSked Stories. If I click to Collections, then back to Stories the dreaded 'chronological' search comes back. ARC doesn't seem to want to default to 'reverse chronological' even with my preferences set.

    Hello Eric, and thank you for posting your Idea!

    You are currently able to accomplish what you're requesting in the WebSked user interface. I would recommend a two-step process.

    1. Create a Saved Search with "reverse chronological" set as the direction and a relative date of "-7 days" in the relative date field of the Saved Search. You can name this "Default."

    2. Click on your profile name in the top right corner of WebSked and select "WebSked User Profile." Choose the "Preferences" tab and from here you can select your preferred default Saved Search and save it.

    This should provide you with the functionality you're looking for. Thanks again!
