How to use grouping and module preset tools

Learn how to use Cryptowatch Desktop’s grouping and module preset tools to streamline your boards.
The grouping and module preset functions in Cryptowatch Desktop improve the way you create and adjust the content of your boards.

What is module grouping?

Grouping makes it easier to link markets of multiple modules in a short amount of time. Changing the exchange or market in one module will also affect all other modules in the same group. This can simplify the way you adjust your modules and speed up the creation process altogether.
You can create up to 9 different groupings on a single board.

How to group modules

There are two ways to start grouping modules together — using the module itself and the Edit Module menu.

Using the module

icon in the top-left of the module opens the grouping options. This is generally the fastest way to group multiple modules.
  1. 1.
    Click the
  2. 2.
    Select a group number from the window
  3. 3.
    Repeat for all modules that should have the same market
  4. 4.
    Set the market in any of the grouped modules

Using the Edit Module menu

While editing a module’s settings you may decide to change its grouping.
The Group dropdown menu is immediately below the Module Type in the Edit Module menu.
Click the gear icon in the top-right of the window to open the Edit Module menu

How to create module presets

After determining the settings of any given module, you can save that state as a module preset. Module presets let you quickly apply a state of module settings to new instances of the same module type.
For example, all of your TA settings (ie. indicators and overlays used, visual style adjustments and adjusted input parameters) can be saved as a preset of the Candle module. When building a fresh board, you can apply the preset to any new price chart.
The Module Preset section can be found in the Edit Module menu

Making a new module preset

After tweaking the module settings to your liking:
  1. 1.
    Click the Settings button in the top of the module [cogwheel] to open the Edit Module menu
  2. 2.
    Scroll to the bottom to find the Module Preset section
  3. 3.
    Give the preset a name in the field labeled <save as new preset>
  4. 4.
    Click the checkmark to save the preset
After selecting a module preset, use the “Auto-save changes to preset” toggle to simultaneously make changes to every module with the same preset

Applying a module preset

Click the dropdown menu (labeled <none selected>) at the top of the Module Preset section of the Edit Module menu and select a preset you wish to apply.

Resetting a module to default settings

A module can be reverted to default settings by clicking the Reset module to built-in default button. The button can be found in the Module Preset section in the Edit Module menu. Resetting the module to the built-in default will remove all your changes to the module settings.

Editing a preset

After making changes to a module with a preset applied, click the [floppy disc] Save icon next to the preset’s name in the Edit Module menu.
Alternatively, you can check the box pictured below to auto-save any changes you make to this preset.
To change a module’s name, click the pencil icon next to the module preset’s name in the Edit Module menu.

Deleting a module preset

To delete a module preset:
