Common Use Cases
CQ compiled a few common searches clients are utilizing to pull specific content of their choice from CQ's databases. See below for those recommendations.
Tracking Draft and Introduced Legislation
Select Hot Docs ('Documents & Analysis' → 'Hot Docs') as a source to be alerted to any proposed legislation (i.e,. a draft or unmarked bill) for the next phase of emergency stimulus legislation related to COVID-19. You can also track legislation that has already been introduced by selecting Bill Text, BillAnalysis and BillTrack under 'Bill Sources.'

Can I just review the Coronavirus Resource Center mentioned above? Why do I need alerts, too?
The Coronavirus Resource Center is extremely thorough and comprehensive and provides you with a holistic overview of what is happening. Alerts can provide you information more specific to your organization's needs. For instance, if you work in the Airlines industry, you may want an alert any time the word "Airline" is mentioned with the word "Coronavirus."
My alert is sending me too many emails. What do I do?
Simply go to Review → My Alerts → View details. From there, you can edit the keywords; sources; delivery time/times; title, and more. If you're receiving too many emails, remove some of the sources you have checked off for your alert, run the search, and make sure that the amount of results over the past day isn't too overwhelming.
How do I edit my alert?
Simply go to Review → My Alerts → View details. From there, you can edit the keywords; sources; delivery time/times; title, and more.
Can I add more sources?
Of course! Simply go to Review → My Alerts → View details. From there, you can add or remove any sources you'd like by hitting 'Edit' next to 'Sources.'
Why don't I have access to all the sources listed here?
Most likely because your organization has a specific CQ Federal package with limited access. Email email@example.com or your Account Manager with any questions.
