Creating a Stream Favorite

To create a Stream Favorite:

  1. In the StreamBrowser, click the Show Stream Favorites button ().

    The Stream Favorites panel appears.

  1. Click the New button.

    The Create Stream Favorite dialog box appears.

  2. In the Name field, enter the name for the Stream Favorite.
  3. By default, Stream Favorites are private — that is, the Stream Favorite you create can be used only by you. If you want to be able to share your Stream Favorite with others, click the Public radio button.
  4. Use the Stream Search to locate the streams in your depot that you want to mark as favorites:

    Note: By default, AccuRev searches the depot for any streams that contain the string you enter, but you can change that to matches, starts with, or ends with. The search field is case-sensitive — searching on, say, AccuRev and accurev will yield different results.

  5. When you have specified your search criteria, click the Search button.

    AccuRev displays the streams that match your search criteria in the Search Results list box.

  6. Use the Add and Add All buttons to choose the streams you want to mark as favorites.

    Tip: You can use Shift+ and Ctrl+ click to select more than one stream at a time.

  7. If you want to search for other streams to include in this Stream Favorite, return to Step 5.

  8. If you change your mind about including a stream in this Stream Favorite, select it in the Selected Streams list box and click the Remove button.

  9. When you have finished choosing streams, click Ok to create the Stream Favorite.

    The new Stream Favorite appears in the Stream Favorites panel under the My Favorites folder.

    Tip: Private Stream Favorites are displayed with a simple star icon (). Public Stream Favorites are displayed with the star icon against a blue background ().
