Among the many RBsource features are:

Two new IntelliConnect features provide greater flexibility

Library View
The new Library View option on the Browse pane gives you an alternate navigation route through IntelliConnect. The Library View will display a single library in a full-width Browse pane, conveniently expanding any grouped publications. This view is especially helpful for state content such as State Banking and State Tax where listings of individual states make for a lengthy Browse Tree. And “jump to” links allow you to quickly switch from topic to topic (or from Federal to State to International content, etc.). From within each library, you can check the box next to any or all of the publications to run a search, or you can menu walk to a document in a specific publication. Click here to view a short demo.

Search Suggestions
With this new automated feature, IntelliConnect will suggest various search terms when you type letters into the search expression box. You can point to the suggested term and hit “Go” to search at any time. This new feature, which is similar to what you see on many websites, will suggest frequently searched terms as you type into the IntelliConnect search bar. You can turn the feature off at any time by going to the preferences menu. The dictionary that feeds the Search Suggestions feature will be continually updated by our Wolters Kluwer editorial experts. Send your suggestions for terms to Customer Support via email at customerservice@wolterskluwer.com

Enhancement to IntelliConnect Trackers when accessed via IC Mobile on iPhone, iPad and BlackBerry

Trackers that publish less often than daily, such as report letters, are now grouped between Today’s News and Most Recent News. So, for example, if you check your mobile on a day other than a report letter’s publication date, you will see the report letter’s most recent issues under Recent News.
Note: In order to be able to view Trackers on a mobile device, you must first set up the Trackers in the Tracker News section of IntelliConnect by clicking Add/Modify Trackers and then selecting them from the list based upon your subscriptions.

Jim Hamilton Securities blog now accessible on iPhone and iPad

The popular Jim Hamilton’s World of Securities Regulation blog can now be read on your iPhone or iPad—so you can keep up with Jim’s latest views and insights wherever you go. To download the free app, go to the Apple App Store and search for “Jim Hamilton.” The app is called “JH Sec Reg.”
