Below are a few tips for how to configure your DSCVR profile to maximize efficientciy for participation in the CodeGov portal.
Customize portals on the left sidebar
Click your profile
In the Manage Portals section
Search for the portal name
It will show up in your Favorite Portals Section. You can drag and drop the order you want them to appear.
Your custom list of Portals will appear on the left sidebar
Set Default Sorting to New
Change Default Portal Settings to New
This will ensure that every time you enter the CodeGov portal you see the latest proposal on top (after the pinned messages). Hot and Top sorting are less useful in the CodeGov portal since we should always be focused on reviewing current proposals.
Of course, if you prefer your default sorting to be Hot or Top instead of New, you can always change to New every time your enter the portal. The sort option is pretty conveniently located at the top.
However, the default sorting is always used when you click on any specific post thread. It is not as easy to find or remember the dropdown that enables you to change the sort order within the post thread. Hence, it does help to set default sorting to New if your primary use of DSCVR is the CodeGov portal.
