  2. So is it really true that NVivo does not allow me to escape any of the special characters so that I can search for them? Oh my! This is such a basic and simple feature of any serious text query tool. So please can someone tell me that I'm wrong? Or perhaps there is a way to search for regular expressions (regex)?

  4. Is there a way to apply same attributes to all ncapture documents in a specific folder? i got more than 7000 sources all in appropriate folders and i don't want to waste my time setting same attributes in the same folders 😥 i would highly appreciate if there is a way to do this and if someone could share the information 🙏 P.S. i got 144 folders each containing 4 to 150 ncapture files in the source directory..

    Import data from ongoing survey

    Hi Helen, You will be able to import the same survey multiple times from Qualtrics in NVivo. Please see the link with more information below: https://bit.ly/2RNARsm I hope the above information helps. Akshay
  6. Hi there, I've been using NVivo for quite a few years but am new to using it for survey data. Sorry if this is a bit of rookie question! I am about to start working with some Qualtrics survey data. I want to start coding the data while the survey is still open. Is it possible to import new rows of data into NVivo as more people complete the survey? In an ideal world, there would be away of avoiding duplicating those I have already imported and simply appending the new rows to the existing data source in NVivo. In an even more ideal world this would automatically code the open ended questions to the same question (column-based) nodes as their predecessors. I'm sure I can do a manual workaround by exporting the data to Excel, removing older rows, and importing to NVivo as a new source (with the potential to then merge nodes)...but I thought I'd check whether there was a more sophisticated way of dealing with this issue before I set my project up in a way that makes neater solutions impossible later! Thanks heaps for any suggestions. Helen

  8. Hi Lily, You are having trouble connecting to NVivo Server because there are not enough free licenses available on NVivo Server when you tried to connect. You need free CALs (Client Access License) available on NVivo Server before you can connect to a server project. To check the number of currently used CALs, you can ask your server admin to go to NVivo Server manager > 'Users' tab > 'Users's tab and look at the 'Number of CALs currently in use' at the bottom. CALs are used up when a license is allocated to a named user in NVivo Server manager ('Allocation' subtab under 'Licensing' tab). For further details on licensing and how CALs are allocated, refer to the link below: http://techcenter.qsrinternational.com/desktop/ns11_R2/ns11_R2_understand_licensing_for_NVivo_Server.htm I hope this helps. Kind Regards, Bhupesh
  9. Hi, Our team is working on the NVivo Server project. Today I got a notification that I cannot access the server (and hence the project) because there are no available licenses. This hasn't happened before and I was wondering if this happened to anyone else when working with NVivo server projects and what should we do in order to resolve this.

    Annotation Document Creation

    I know this will likely read as familiar: Perhaps in future updates, a way forward would be to include the creation of an annotation document that compiles all notes taken for a file (in my case, a text file of an interview transcript). I fear the gap between the Memos, memo links, and Annotation is presently a bridge too far. Thank you, Mike

    Limits to annotations (view, cross reference, print)

    Right. Right to every single point you made. I am about to try some work arounds, and I will get back here to share those outcomes. Last thought: The move you describe of withholding making the annotation into a memo makes perfect sense to me. That one might review—not necessarily code—independently one's annotations strikes me as altogether obvious and wise before one goes to the memos. Mike NVivo 12.1.0 Mac

    Closed questions in surveys

    Hi Jennimh, To search in this way you can try a Coding query. https://help-nv.qsrinternational.com/12/win/v12.1.45-d3ea61/Content/queries/coding-query.htm The query criteria would be to search in a selected item ( your survey dataset) for ‘Any Cases Where’. You would then select the attribute (closed query response) you want to query for. Hope this helps. ^NB

    Coding audio workflow

    I find the suggestion of the more efficient workflow very workable and would love this to become available. Does version 12 have such a facility? Thanks Robert
  15. I have imported a survey (in excel format) which consists of open and closed questions. The closed questions have possible responses of 1-5 which relate to likert scale points. The open questions are text responses. I have coded the open questions, and now I would like to explore the coding in relation to responses of the closed questions - e.g., if a number of people responded '1' or '2' to closed question 'x,' what were their responses to the open questions? I hope this makes sense - it is like filtering what open questions I see according to the closed question responses. Is there a way of doing this? Thanks Jenni

    Pop-ups when coding

    Hi Olinda, At this stage, I am sorry to inform you, it is not possible to turn off the coding confirmation dialogue. Our previous versions such as NVivo 10, didn't have this feature and it was added in later versions based on customer feedback. We use an easy and user-friendly online tool called Canny to gather all our customer feedback. May I request that you click on the following link https://nvivo.canny.io/ share your feature suggestion here by creating a post? You can also vote on posts created by other users. When you post or vote on a feature, you will start receiving notification via Canny on the planned/in progress/completed actions. Kind Regards, Bhupesh
  17. I'd like a thread for help for Nvivo 12 (or include it with the Nvivo 11 thread) on this forum.

    Pop-ups when coding

    Firstly, this is for Nvivo 12. I've just upgraded, unsure if it's the same for Nvivo 11. When I code to a node I'm getting pop-ups telling me: "Coded at: xxxx node". I find them distracting, is there a way to turn these off? I can't figure it out

    Auto coding and paragraph numbering

    Just a follow-up on this, one significant improvement in Nvivo 12 on this line, is the opportunity to auto code via speakers name in an interview transcription. You enter each person's name as they appear in the document and Nvivo captures the text from each 'speaker'.

    Corrupt file no option to recover

    Hi Ali, We can help you in recovering the project from your .nvb file. Can you please fill out a support request at https://bit.ly/2xfFi6R and we’ll get back to you with more information. Regards, Akshay
  23. I have a colleague working on a parallel analysis of a dataset that overlaps. She has already coded some cases using a codebook we developed together. How can I import in the case WITH CODING so that I don't have to re-code those cases we share? Thank you!
  24. Hi my project didn’t close down last night and now says it’s corrupted and I want to load the project recovery but it’s not giving me the option to repair or recover. And I can’t seem to open the .nvb file any help most welcome ali

    Code Co-Occurrence across rows of Excel data?

    Hi, For analysis of this type, it may be possible to do this using a matrix coding query, as this would allow you to look at themes and cases for a particular question, or themes and questions for a case. The following link from NVivo 12 online help outlines how to use this query: https://help-nv.qsrinternational.com/12/win/v12.1.45-d3ea61/Content/queries/matrix-coding-query.htm Hope this helps.

    Word frequency - word dictionaries

    Hi, Currently there is no method to run a word frequency query of this type in NVivo. The Word Frequency query counts words in a source and uses an internal dictionary however the internal dictionary is not customisable. We use an easy and user-friendly online tool called Canny to gather all our customer feedback. May I request that you click on the following link https://nvivo.canny.io/ and share this as a feature suggestion here by creating a post. You can also vote on posts created by other users. When you post or vote on a feature, you will start receiving notification via Canny on the planned/in progress/completed actions. Regards, QSR Support

    Hi, Currently NVivo 11 for Mac does not allow for creating a copy of a project from within the software, you would need to make a copy externally using Finder. In regards to your problem opening the file from the external drive, you may be receiving an error if the external drive uses a filesystem that NVivo cannot read. The following FAQ link has more information this: http://www.qsrinternational.com/nvivo/support-overview/faqs/why-do-i-receive-an-error-cannot-open-or-save-pro Hope this helps. Regards, QSR Support

    I had hoped to copy my project to an external drive. I go to File > ... I only get the option of copying the sample project. I also tried to drag and drop the project to the external drive, but NVivo won't open it. These are various attempts to speed up the very, very slow process of opening, saving, etc.
