Description

I mostly like QuoteManager and use it to manage data collection from my data sources. I focus on futures, and as a result I have a lot of symbols in my QuoteManager (currently 1000). Inside of QuoteManager, I have no at-a-glance way of telling how complete my data is without forcing a full download of all symbols. I am concerned about gaps and managing them efficiently.

QuoteManager knows what data it has and could help me, though I think it would have to iterate over all symbols and process the data.

I propose a "report" feature that would list all symbol-resolution-fields on one side and report the first entry, last entry, largest gap (in days, or hours, or whatever), and the location of that gap. I'm happy to wait for this report to generate, I understand it probably would take some iteration.

It would be very cool if I could trigger a download to target only those data gaps, but it's okay if that's not available.

I am finding it cumbersome to manage my data in QuoteManager and this would help a lot.

Since MultiCharts 14 we introduce the Historical Data Download Scheduler It allows to select a number of instruments from QuoteManager list, then go to Instrument menu -> Download Historical Data, and download data for them. It is possible to save your request parameters and download data even every day according to the specified schedule. You can download MultiCharts 14 OpenBeta from our website to test it right now. Hope this feature will suit your needs.

I am aware, thank you.

My concern is less with staying up to date and more with verifying that my data is gap free. Right now the only way for me to do this is to export and try to find out in excel. I'd have to do this for every symbol. I think QuoteManager could make this much easier.
