Refactor Combine Selected Saved Answers

The primary objective of this feature is to improve the performance of ‘Saved’ items page loading as well as an improved user interaction and experience while combining saved results. In the previous iteration, the eligibility of saved items for combining was established while loading the ‘Saved’ items page which resulted in unintended negative performance. In the current iteration, the eligibility of ‘Saved’ items to be combined is not established until the user opts in to the combine functionality.

This feature 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.

While upon the 'Saved' items page, a button to ‘Combine Saved Results’ will be displayed below the filters as shown below.

If there are no saved items that are eligible to be combined the user will be notified in the Combine Saved Results section and the 'Combine' button will be disabled.

If there are saved items eligible to be combined, clicking the ‘Combine’ button will open the following dialog.

Result types eligible for combining results (2 or more saved items of that result type with selected answers) will appear enabled with a Select button. Result types not eligible for combining results will appear disabled and will be labeled ‘No eligible results to combine.’ Clicking the ‘Learn More’ link will open the SFn help file in a new tab, open to the Combine Selected Saved Results Sets page.

Clicking the 'Select' button for an eligible result type will update the modal dialog to display the combine operations that are available:
