Scheduled Scanning Gets An Upgrade

Hello, traders! Recently, we launched Scheduled Scanning, a feature that allows you to set your favorite scanner on a schedule and receive results via email daily.

Many in the TrendSpider community are now utilizing this feature, but there’s been one resounding request; The ability to schedule more than one scan at a time. Well, we hear you and we’re pleased to announce that you can now schedule three scans at once. Details below.

What’s New?

Previously, users could only schedule one scan per day. With this enhancement, you can set up three different scans to run automatically at your chosen times, ensuring you never miss a market opportunity. This means more data, more insights, and more opportunities delivered straight to your inbox daily.

How to Use the Upgraded Feature

The process remains as intuitive and straightforward as before:

  1. Select Your Watchlist: Choose the watchlist you want to scan.
  2. Define Your Criteria: Specify the technical and fundamental criteria for each of your scans.
  3. Schedule Your Delivery Times: Pick times during non-trading hours (either after hours or premarket) to run your scans, and choose the day(s) you wish to receive the results.
  4. Receive Daily Updates: Get the results emailed to you every day at the scheduled times.

Managing Multiple Scans

To manage any scan that’s currently running on a schedule, simply load it into the scanner and click on the three dots in the upper-right corner next to the save button. You will see options to manage the scanner’s schedule. You can edit the delivery times and days or stop running a specific scan as needed.

Actionable Ideas, Straight to Your Inbox

Once scheduled, the results of your scans will be delivered to your inbox on the predefined days and times. You’ll see a colorful list of symbols identified by your scanner:

  • Red Symbols: No longer meet the scan criteria but did the last time the scan was run.
  • Blue Symbols: New additions to the list of names meeting your criteria.
  • Grey Symbols: Meet your criteria today and on the previous scan as well.

You can still share your scanner results via browser links, embeds, or APIs, making it easy to keep your team or audience informed.
