Hi Jerry, I have alerts setup for news and one came in for ACB:CA at 10:17 am EST - 7:17am PST (my time) but there was no alert for it. IIROC Halt.

Screen shots of my setup in Medved and a backup on dropbox in the folder 2018-05-03-ACBMissingNews

The news alerts trigger per alert per symbol. You already had that alert triggered for that symbol about 4 hours earlier ("Globe says Aurora in friendly talks with Medreleaf") and the alert was never cleared and you don't have your alerts set to auto clear after any period. Once an alert for a symbol is triggered, it will not trigger again until it is cleared

the headline doesn't matter. it goes by symbol. The specific alert for that specific symbol was already triggered and not cleared. That is all that matters. That is why another headline for the same symbol did not trigger another alert

So basically if during the day there were many  news alerts  and I closed the pop up for the first one but didn't go into the alert manager and cleared alerts I would not see another news instance for that symbol?

eg stock halted then unhalted

New  pops up for stock being halted, I close the dialog or the timeout occurs

I don't go to alert manager and clear all alerts by clicking clear

News comes for the unhalt, I wouldn't get an alert for that stock.

Yes though you do not need to go to any other screen. The pop-up has a button to turn off the alert. Also you may want to set the alert to automatically clear itself maybe after 20 minutes? It will still show up in the alert log

K this is likely due to me setting my news alerts to only close manually instead of after a period of time. 

Is there a way to have the alert clear after x minutes but the dialog popup box with the news stay up till closed?  Maybe an enhancement request to add another check box in the alerts setup to make this possible?

Think I already asked this but is there a way to get a view in the news window of all the symbols news rather then just the active one? Tired control selecting multiple symbols but that doesn't work.

Hold on a sec...thinking about this some more.  If I close the symbols popup box for news does that not clear the symbols news flag so new news should pop up currently?

You can open the "All News" window from the dashboard.

You cannot clear the alert and still have the popup visible. The Alert Log is the more persistent display intended for that.

closing the popup doesn't clear any flags. It does NOT turn off the alert

I see that I can search "news" in the alert window but its not very visual friendly since things are different lengths. ie titles start at different places on each line.

All news isn't quite what I am looking for since it has news about all stocks even ones not in my portfolios.  Something along the same lines as all news but for all Portfolios news would be great. :)

Using the clear button on the alert pop ups doesn't really fit the bill either since I may leave  a bunch of dialog boxes open  till I get around to reading them then I miss the news alerts coming after them.  A work around  is to click news and then always check the symbols current news, but in that case I always get a new news window pop open instead of the one I already have open so I have to close the new one once I look.
