Remember your history

Change from Care Opinion tech

Posted by on

Unusually, today I'm sharing a new feature which anyone who logs into Care Opinion can use. And by anyone I mean story authors, staff, students and even us on the Care Opinion team.

It's a simple feature but a really useful one: stories you have read recently.

Yes, that's all it is! But I know that once you use it, you'll love it.

How to see your recently read stories

First, you have to be logged in. Then, there are two ways to see the list of stories you read recently:

  1. If you are a subscriber, you'll see a top yellow bar. Click [Recently read] to see the recently read list.
  2. If you don't have a top yellow bar, or if you like keyboard shortcuts, just press Shift + Alt + R. (That's all 3 keys together).

Either method will open the list.

How to use the recently read list

Your list will look something like this:

Recently read stories

To go to a story you read before, just click the story title.

To see all stories by an author, click the author name.

If you are a subscriber, you can view all stories in your history, or filter to just stories within your current subscription.

Searching within stories you have read

If you need to search for a story you have read, click the link at the bottom of the panel:

Bottom of the recently read panel

This link will take you to search page, with a search term already added to filter to just "stories I have read", like this:

Search for stories I have read

Now you can add any other search terms you want, like services, tags, or phrases, as you would in any search.

You can also use this search to create a report based on stories you have read.

How to close the panel

There are two ways to close the panel:

  1. Click the X at the top of the panel.
  2. Press Shift + Alt + R again.

Either method will close the panel.

That's it! I hope you like it. As usual, let us know if you have ideas for improvement.
