For OneClick searches, these are maintained in the OneClick Setups themselves. Enter the Setups > OneClick Setups menu and update the setup of your choice. On the General tab you will see the Evaluation Period settings.

For all other searches, the Evaluation Period is set in the Trade Settings menu. Enter the Setups > Trade Settings menu and see the Evaluation Period settings on the General tab.

Why do we maintain unique Evaluation Period settings for OneClick? A OneClick search is a continuous search that may take weeks or even months to complete. If one were to accidentally change that Evaluation Period and restart a OneClick search, the multi-system and score could be quickly wiped out and replaced with new ones based on the new Evaluation Period. Having unique settings for the OneClick search allows you to change the Evaluation Periods for other system testing without the increased risk of damaging an ongoing OneClick search.
