About the deal slicer
How to use it
This is where you pick the types of deal you want to explore.
Just tick a box to 'slice' deals containing that particular feature.
When a box is clicked on or off, the number of deals you've sliced
(top left) is updated. Tick more features and when you're ready, click on that
number to view sample deals from the underlying set. What could be easier?
What it shows
The page's centre column determines which tick boxes appear on
the right. Click on a bullet point's text to explore its features.
On the right-hand column, three bits of information follow each tick-box:
- the feature you can select e.g. a number of HCP or a particular shape
- in brackets is the percentage of seats, pairs or deals sharing that
- the number on which the percentage is calculated.
Additionaly, the right hand column's heading shows the sum of that
The page's left-hand column shows the boxes you've ticked, growing as
you tick more. You can switch-off boxes here.
Some points to note:
- Ticking several boxes in the same list, e.g. seat.shape 4-3-3-3,
4-4-3-2 and 5-3-3-2 widens your search, catching more deals. Extending your
selection by ticking boxes in a different list
narrows your search. So remember, boxes in the same list use an OR
selector whilst slection across different lists uses AND.
You'll quickly get the hang of it.
Ticking boxes from both the seats and pairs categories selects deals
containing seats of that type WITHIN pairs of that type.
- You're slicing DEALS containing the features of your choice and a deal
comprises two pairs and four seats. So for example: c35% of seats contain either
a void or singleton and that translates into c80% of deals having one or more
seats with that characteristic. Understanding these relationships is part
of the exploration!
- You can slice sets containing thousands of deals. However, no more
than 128 deals will be downloaded for viewing. If your set exceeds that
number, you'll receive a random sub-set of 128.
