Every object in Nesstar WebView can be linked to using bookmarks. Bookmarks can be used to save a particular view of a dataset, e.g. cross-tabulation, details of a variable, an interesting analysis, graph or map, which can then be shared with others. These bookmarks can be saved locally to your own machine, or stored with a particular dataset or table, to be viewed by other users with appropriate access rights. Three types of bookmark are available:


Browser bookmarks

A browser bookmark stores the information on your own machine, in the same way that a web browser stores bookmarks or favourites. When a browser bookmark is selected, the browse list and information in the right frame are returned.

To create a Browser bookmark

  1. Click bookmarks.
  2. Select the url (highlighted in below snapshot).


  1. Enter relevant information in the usual way for your particular web browser.
  2. Click 'OK'.

Server bookmarks

The ability to create 'Server' bookmarks is controlled by the organisation hosting the Nesstar Server, so you may find that this option is not available.

To create a Server bookmark

  1. Click bookmarks.
  2. Click on 'Advanced' to show Server bookmarking options .


  1. Add a 'Label' for your bookmark
  2. Add some text into the 'Comment' field if required.
  3. Click 'Add bookmark'. When created, the bookmark itself will appear within the 'Bookmarks' section for the relevant dataset.

When available, a 'Server bookmark' is stored on the Nesstar server. To create and delete this type of bookmark you must login and is therefore only available to those with the appropriate level of authorisation. The option to create a Server bookmark is not available until a study, or cube, has been opened.

Access to Server bookmarks usually requires the same authentication procedures as access to tabulations or downloads, but this can vary depending on the access control policy in operation by the host organisation.
