Sentieo v2.9

The team at Sentieo has been working hard to deliver new features and improvements across the platform. Please don’t hesitate to utilize the Live Support with any questions or feedback you may have. You can view all previous release notes here.

Below are a few items we would like to highlight in this release:

Section Search Filters – out of beta

We’ve greatly improved our Section Search algorithm and are excited to take this feature out of beta. With this filter, you can constrain your search results to specific sections of a 10-K or 10-Q. For example, find mentions of business challenges or opportunities only in the MD&A section of a 10-K. Additionally, this filters transcript search results to mentions by a specific individual or group. For example, find mentions of organic growth by ONLY the CEO or ONLY management.

Expanded 8-K filter types

You can now filter your search results to specific types of 8-K Filings. For example, search only in 8-K’s pertaining to Earnings:
