    I have a coding matrix of cases by a few nodes. I want to produce a report of the text coded at the specified nodes for each case. It should look something like this: Case 1 Node 1: Text..text..text … Node 2: Text..text..text … Case 2 Node 1: Text..text..text … Node 2: Text..text..text … Etc. Does anyone know how to do this?

    Hi cgev, Currently there is no direct way to do this in NVivo, however it may be possible with a Matrix Coding query. The query can be set with columns being your 36 nodes and rows as your responses. As the responses are just text at the moment, you will need to make them somehow a project item, such as a node. Once the query is run, you can display if the item in a row is coded to a particular node (column) by right clicking on the matrix and from the menu selecting Cell Content > Coding Presence. These query results can also be exported to an Excel file. For more information on matrix coding queries, see the following help link: http://help-nv11.qsrinternational.com/desktop/procedures/run_a_matrix_coding_query.htm Hope this helps.

    The view setting currently reverts back to the pre-set standard every time you open a new node or source (or reopen the entire project at the start of the day), which means no highlights or codes are displayed. Could you please add a feature that allows the user to customise this setting. Particularly, it would be helpful to allow 'Highlight' -> 'Coding for All Nodes' to be permanently selected for all sources / nodes. The same goes for 'Coding Stripes' -> 'Nodes Recently Coding'. It is rather frustrating that I have to select both options every time I enter a new node / source. In bigger projects this slows my work down quite considerably. I do not know whether I should post this separately but I have a connected suggestion: Please add a feature that shows all the Coding Stripes for the text currently shown on screen. It is great that you are already providing so many different options (e.g. show 'Nodes Most Coding' or 'Nodes Recently Coding') but in bigger projects these functions are not sufficient to help me determine which codes/nodes have already been applied to the text (unless I have recently coded the section or it happens to be a frequently used code/node). In other words, as I scroll down in a long document it would be great if the coding stripes on the right continued to change to what is actually relevant to the text on screen (i.e. selected for the text shown). I know there is a maximum of how many stripes can be shown at once but even if it could only display 7 current stripes that would already help a lot. Thanks and all the best, Tobias

    Hi all, I still struggle with the limits of annotations in NVivo. I tend to annotate as I code, as I like to note ideas related to specific parts of transcript text. But I keep finding myself in trouble with this strategy: 1. It is not possible to actually view the annotations, without going to the source or coded node. I can pull up a list of annotations, but when I click one, it takes me to the source. I find this frustrating; I would like to click on an annotation and be able to JUST see the highlighted/referenced text of the source and the full text of the annotation. Of course I do not need to see the entire source, this is why I selected a small part of it in order to annotate. 2. Relatedly, I should be able to do this for multiple annotations - i.e. select some annotations and view the content (again, referenced text in the source and the annotation itself). 3. I would like to be able to cross reference annotations, a bit link the links function used for memos. I.e. I could create a link between memo 3 and memo 5 on my list, as well as between annotation 3 and memo 2 (for example). 4. I can't print JUST the annotation text or JUST the referenced text with the annotation (this seems to be an issue people have struggle with for years, based on forum entries since 2007). The only way to print annotations is to print the source, with the 'include annotations' check box selected; the annotations then appear as footnotes. But I want to see ALL of my annotations on one page. It is content that I have generated through analysis, so I think expectation this is logical. There are ideas in these annotations, but NVivo is making it hard for me to revisit and organize those ideas. Why are none of these things possible? Am I using annotations incorrectly? I am reluctant to use memos for a similar purpose, because while the annotations may be related in various ways, they are not necessarily about a single coherent subject or theme (which I document in memos). In fact, ideally I'd like to be able to insert annotations into memos. This also seems logical but not possible in NVivo. Does anyone have advice on this front? Many thanks! --- P.s. I'm using NVivo 11.2.2 for Mac but I've struggled with this in Windows before.

    Please add a "zoom" function, for accessibility purposes. The font is so small that I can't work with the Mac version without straining my eyes. Very discouraging.

    Hi Darren, We have heard about RSS feeds from only a few of our customers and there are no immediate plans to support these. 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 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. As a workaround, you may consider using some third party tool to capture the feeds and convert the captured data into a format support by NVivo. Refer to the link below to know about supported data types: https://help-nv.qsrinternational.com/12/mac/v12.1.41-d3ea61/Content/files/files.htm Kind Regards, Bhupesh

    Hi everyone, I know the Nvivo is about qualitative analysis. Nevertheless, when using the cluster analysis function, we need to explain the validity of those results. For example, how to show that Pearson coefficient of 0.46 is significant? The p-value logic could be applied here? If it is not possible to know all the parameters to calculate the Pearson coefficient, how to justify the use of Nvivo as a reliable tool? I really need some help with this. Thanks very much!

    Hi Heather, Thanks for the answer. Please, I don't know how to calculate manually because the parameters and the approach used are unknown. Is there any way to ensure or qualify the Pearson correlation number provided by NVIVO? For example, what is the N ? What the significance level for one-tailed test? Is there some online tool to get this values using the text files? Thanks.

    The two options for cluster analysis appear to be Source and Node. Is it possible to do a cluster analysis for sources that I've grouped using case classification attributes? For example, let's say School 1, School 2, School 3, ... n each have a # of sources (records, interviews, etc.). I made these sources into cases, then assigned the names of schools as case classification attributes (so School 1 is the attribute value for all its sources and so forth). I want to see which schools (= its collection of sources) have similar coding.

    Hi Bhupesh, Thanks for your reply. (1) When I run a cluster analysis on sets, the diagram shows all the sources in that set (e.g., all interviews)-- the analysis looks the same as selecting all sources -- it does not compare set vs set (e.g., School 1 vs School 2). Am I doing something wrong? (2) Matrix queries have been useful for comparing cases, but I'd hoped there was a way to run a cluster analysis. I guess I could export it to Excel for the cluster analysis. best, Lisa

    As a Trainer, I feel difficult to demonstrate a practical example of cluster analysis. Could you form support create some example of using and reading the output of a cluster analysis. The creation process is quite simple but the interpretation fo results is not that easy. If you do so, make it for the three different kinds of criteria (words similarity, coding similarity and attribute values similarity). Regards, Ernani

    From QSR's spiel on what's new: "Enjoy enhanced usability NVivo 9‟s interface now includes a ribbon to help you quickly find frequently used commands so tasks can be completed with fewer steps." So in attempting to enhance usability, they've added the often hated clutter causing ribbon interface and removed customisable shortcuts - one of the key features that actually enhances workflow. As consumers, people should not be paying more to receive less.
