We’re excited to announce a brand new feature in the automation editor. You can now edit automation paths with negated decisions.
This feature has been a popular request from our traders, and we’re happy to deliver improved platform functionality. Negating decisions gives you more flexibility and saves time as you edit automations.
You can now edit any decision block to negate the recipe by selecting “NOT.”
For example, if you make a mistake or want to change the automation’s path to go down the “No” path instead of the “Yes” path, simply negate the decision and switch the automation flow the other direction.
- Symbol reports earnings in less than five market days
The automation will go down the “Yes” path if the underlying security’s earnings announcement is in less than five market days.
- NOT symbol reports earnings in less than five market days
The automation’s flow is re-routed down the “No” path if the underlying security reports earnings in less than five market days.
If there are many actions below the decision recipe, you save a lot of time negating the decision if you want to edit the automation but keep the subsequent decisions in the automation. This is a massive upgrade because you no longer have to rebuild an automation and edit all the actions above and below the negated decision.
Now you can quickly change a recipe to its opposite outcome.
For example, if you have many decisions that end with a close position action, you may want to reverse the last recipe before closing the position. Before this update, you’d have to edit the entire automation. Now you can negate the decision.
There are so many ways you could use this new functionality to edit your automations, correct mistakes, change logic, adapt to changing market conditions, and streamline your work process.
We’re always working to give you more flexibility and control of your portfolio. This update is yet another step toward that goal.
