If Commonstock could build you ONE thing, what would it be?
Although we do have a space for members of Commonstock to voice their feedback and suggestions for new features, I am in a curious mood this morning.

If Commonstock could magically do one thing for you, upgrade one feature, add one feature, solve on bug, etc, what would it be and why?

Would be grateful if peeps can upvote this too so it gains some traction :)

Happy to answer any questions people might have about Commonstock generally too, as much as I can share.

The one thing that I would change is when I paste a post in from a word document, the formatting is really weird and it is annoying to fix it. Would love for that to be fixed. Also really appreciate how quickly the engineering team is rolling out new updates!
Conor Mac's avatar
@youngmoneycapital That's a good point, I see similar kind of thing when copying from substack. Small things like not being able to select an image for the preview of your memo, too, are some polish items that would be dope!

Great suggestions, thanks man.

I think they are doing a great job at rolling out new updates, but if I had to pick one thing, it might be that I find it hard to follow my alerts as I follow a lot of people. Things get lost quite easily. So maybe something similar to Twitter or Instagram would be great. Also if there was the ability to see which ones I have read and not read.

@joeyhirendernath agreed that would be a good improvement
Conor Mac's avatar
@joeyhirendernath For me personally, this is probably my 'one thing' too.

@investmenttalk a portfolio that goes up. Other than that, you guys are crushing it!
Conor Mac's avatar
@strib We can't perform miracles sadly, although I want that too haha.
sam stribling's avatar
@investmenttalk was worth an ask!! 😂
sam stribling's avatar
@investmenttalk serious note - ability to upload short videos would be sweet if possible!
Conor Mac's avatar
@strib Embedded video would be LIT, I agree.

Returns since inception 🙏

@hedgevision This is an interesting, and I can't speak to the technicalities of it (not an engineer) but I think the reason it's 1Y at the moment, is for uniformity across brokerages. Some brokerages may only provide 1Y worth of data, others may provide the whole lot.

Then you might have some users concerned that they have used their brokerage forever, and don't want their early mistakes to be reflected, so having the option to toggle how far back they show.

Lots of talking points around this topic, but eventually having that optionality is something we probably want to give members. Likely a bigger project though I am assuming.

@investmenttalk Thanks for the details Conor, looking forward to it! Blew through several thousands of $$ trading options initially, but all part of the process 🙏

An alert tab where I could decide what I have seen and what I haven't. For example, "mark as seen" or "mark all as seen" would be great options for the tab
Leandro's avatar
@invesquotes For the rest I have no complaints!
Conor Mac's avatar
@invesquotes Great point sir, duly noted. @joeyhirendernath said the same.

Two suggestions for memos:
1) Format section headings in the memo
2) Create collections of memos

Commonstock is such a great community. I'm grateful to be here. The quality of discussion here is fantastic.
Conor Mac's avatar
@valuabl Excellent suggestions Edmund, and really appreciate you being such an awesome member of the community :)

When making a post it auto saves to a draft, similar to tweets. I’ve had several instance where I’ve lost my progress. Currently I write everything in my notes app prior to creating a post.
Conor Mac's avatar
@hypescaleflow ah this was a bug a while back, are you on the current version of the app in appstore?

If so, can you detail what happens, the flow of when the bug happens? Will report to eng.
Jared Watson's avatar
@investmenttalk for the record I've had the same issue; I've accidentally swiped a post down on the iOS app and it disappears into the void
Conor Mac's avatar
@wjared the worst when that happens. Are you on the current version of the app I assume?
hypescaleflow's avatar
@investmenttalk I’m updated to the latest version. If you create a post. In the U.I their is a button to post but not one for a draft, and if you swipe down and then click create a post it opens a new post with an empty content bit.
Conor Mac's avatar
@wjared Will look into this @hypescaleflow thanks chaps.
It would be great to be able to have separate portfolios (ie IRA, taxable) that you can view on their own and not combined. Let me know if there is a way to do this already!
Conor Mac's avatar
@brianbailey619 There is not a way to do this currently, but I agree, that would be an awesome feature. Connect multiple portfolios, but have the option to present them as separate portfolios.

Moonshot idea: a small live chat window where people can write random stuff. Barometer for current market sentiment live + entertaining.
Conor Mac's avatar
@rihardjarc That's actually pretty dope. I think we need something like that. Something which is not in the feed, but accentuates it, and is more "live".
Rihard Jarc's avatar
@investmenttalk Yeah. And the UI could be super dope and just clean, like a DOS command line (with the addition of emojis, ofc can't without emojis).

Ability to capture options positions and performance in the portfolio. I use options and so my portfolio and performance on Commonstock isn't totally reflective of reality.
Conor Mac's avatar
@zmo This is actually something that is coming very soon.

I wish that Commonstock had a charting feature where I can see charts from a logarithmic scale and that can let me place lines on them. While Tradingview also does that, the issue I have with Tradingview is that I can't seem to figure out how to turn the candlesticks from monthly to daily. Having the candlesticks be monthly on a long term chart slightly distorts things.
Conor Mac's avatar
@dissectmarkets Interesting suggestion, thanks DM!

I agree with some of the others on alerts. I submitted an enhancement request for clustered alerts a few months ago
Conor Mac's avatar
@scorebdinvestor I think we may hopefully see an update there soon :)
