Combined Saved Answer Sets – Phase 1

This release allows users to combine saved items. Saved items are eligible to be combined if answers were selected prior to saving the result set or it is a detail record. Future releases will introduce the ability to combine query-only based saved items.

The combine saved answer set functionality is available for saved references, reactions, and substances.

The answer sets can be combined in three ways:

The Add and Intersect options can be applied to 2 to 5 saved items, while the Subtract option can only be applied to 2 saved items.

On the Saved page, saved items that are eligible for combining will have a Combine button.

Selecting the Add option will open a window populated with other saved items for which the currently selected item is eligible to be combined. Selecting 1 to 4 of these items enables the View Results button.

Clicking the View Results button combines the saved results and redirects the user to the combined result set. The user may select and save the combined results, indicated in the saved item record.

Selecting the Intersect option opens a window populated with other saved items for which the currently selected item is eligible to be combined. Selecting 1 to 4 of these items enables the View Results button. Clicking the View Results button combines the saved results and redirects the user to the combined result set.

Selecting the Subtract option opens a window populated with other saved items for which the currently selected item is eligible to be combined. Selecting one of these items enables the Next button.

Clicking the Next button opens a subsequent dialog where the user selects which saved item to subtract from the other as shown below. 

Clicking one of the View Results buttons redirects the user to the combined result set.

Note: In all of these dialogs, if the user has not named the saved item it will have the default name 'Unnamed'. The next release will require users to enter a name for all saved items.

My Profile Link to CAS Profile

This feature provides the ability for the user to access their CAS Profile page from the Home page or a subsequent page's header.

Clicking Account in the header opens up a drop-down menu with two options:

Clicking the My Profile option redirects the user to CAS Profile. The first time the user accesses their CAS Profile page, they will be required to click through a series of dialogs to verify their name and email address and to confirm/establish a security question before viewing the dashboard, users are able to edit their personal information as well as change their passwords and update security question data.

CAS Concept Hit Highlighting

The reference text based search result highlighting now includes hit highlighting of CAS concepts contained within query terms. Hit concepts are highlighted in addition to any previously existing highlighting in the reference detail. For example, a search of the query ["water repellency" AND wetting] returns 512 reference results and is highlighted as shown below.

The bound phrase "water repellency" is found in the abstract of the first answer and the term “wetting” is a hit CAS concept in the reference. The reference detail Concept section now contains appropriate highlighting for any hit concepts as shown below.

Additionally, if the query term also hits on a concept modifier such as ["water repellency and non-wetting], the modifier is highlighted in the reference Concept section as well.
