  1. Hello Francisco, The way Nvivo was developed considers that each case should have a single file ( like a transcription of an interview). Therefore, what you had to do is an expected behavior. In order to prevent future copy-paste actions, I would suggest you to keep a single file for each of your cases. However, if your analysis has an aspect of time, like observing a change in opinion of same participant in time, then you would need a different strategy. I would suggest you to look at post below. I hope it will provide you some insight about research with cases that have multiple files.
  2. Hello Adam, I would you suggest you to take a look at below source: http://help-nv11.qsrinternational.com/desktop/procedures/import_(or_export)_classification_sheets.htm Hope this helps, With kind regards,
  3. Hello KGP, Without knowing your exiting coding structure it would be hard to provide a general solution. However, there are some points that I would like to underline. If you would like to see only the thematic coding in your data, chart tool can create a coding chart for only a single file. However, if you have multiple files, which I assume is the case in your analysis, I would suggest utilizing matrix coding query to be able to pick up the desired nodes. You would have option to visualize your data as a chart. Hope this helps, With kind regards,
  4. Hello Alxia, Could you please elaborate more on this with an example? With kind regards,
  5. Hello Adam, Importing survey data in excel format has significant auto coding advantages, especially for your demographic data. Therefore, I would not suggest you to import each row (i.e. each case) as a single file. If coding stripes really help you in your coding/analysis you can still use them in form view of your imported excel file instead of table view. After all, even you import single files for each case, to be able to see stripes in a way you want you would still need to read each file from top to bottom. Below, figure exhibits why you could not utilize stripes. This figure belongs to exact data in form view. This view lets you work on each of your cases separately. Hope this helps, With kind regards,
  6. Hello Jenanne, Moving from your example, I can say that you are on the right track. You may want to create cases for your locations and assign attributes for each different location. You can also create attributes for your descriptive information about these cases. However, please note that if all of your cases do not contain a type of descriptive data, then it would appear as unassigned/not applicable. After completing this with all your sources, then you can create thematic nodes for key concepts like environmental, risk reduction, etc. Such a coding strategy would allow you to create various visualizations of your coded data. Hope this helps, With regards,
  7. Hello Anna, You strategy would differ based on which Nvivo version you are using. Could you please elaborate on that. With regards,
  8. Hello George, I see that you are trying to create a matrix for your thematic content nodes. Please note that framework matrix designed for discovering thematic content for your cases., which is really good for literature review. For detailed information I would suggest you to take a look at Nvivo 11's help documentation ( I do not know why but for some reason it explains better then the current one) below: http://help-nv11.qsrinternational.com/desktop/concepts/about_framework_matrices.htm With kind regards,

    Hello, Once a dataset imported you will not be able to edit/redact it. You may have a look below official help page: https://help-nv.qsrinternational.com/12/win/v12.1.90-d3ea61/Content/files/datasets.htm Hope this helps,
  10. Hello Bhupesh, Thank you so much for your response. Following your suggestions, I successfully managed to add users to Collaboration Cloud. However, please note that the information you shared is not documented on official help page. Moreover, Collaboration cloud interface does not have a download progress indicator. I have already provided feedback regarding these on nvivo.canny.io With regards,
  11. Hello JDO, Putting a project file on a cloud for enabling multiple user simultaneous coding is not possible, unless you use Nvivo Server. You may want to re-consider not to perform simultaneous coding. If that is OK for you and your team, then I suggest you to set up a coding schedule for each team member. This way allows other members to continue coding one after another. One thing to remember is each member should first put their project file on their hard drive instead of cloud folder. Once they finish their coding or their time is up, they should save the project on their hard drive (let's say into documents folder) then paste and replace the one project admin saved in cloud folder. Such a routine will prevent unexpected data loss incase you have network connection issues with the cloud service before saving your work. Hope this helps, With kind regards
  12. Hello Tabitha, OneDrive or any other cloud service has a network channel between the folders you have selected to sync and your cloud space. In that sense, if you are saving your Nvivo project into a sync folder, it is similar to save your projects on a network drive. Nvivo Manual says that : "By default, if your project is stored on a network drive, when you save the project your changes are saved locally—the .nvp project file on the network is only updated when you close the project. To avoid loss of data, make sure that you close your project before you turn off your computer." It seems the unexpected restart of your computer preventer Nvivo to properly save your project, and as far as I know without a recovery file you can not recover your work. I do use cloud storage to store my projects ignorer to access them wherever I need. However, I do keep my active project on documents folder and move and replace the copy in cloud folder after I finished my work. I highly recommend a similar saving routine to prevent such unexpected data loss. Hope this helps, With regards,
  13. Hello Amjad, Nvivo for Mac can not convert NVivo for Windows projects automatically. You need to export your Nvivo 12 Windows project in Nvivo for Mac format, so that you can open it in Nvivo for Mac. With regards,
  14. Hello M_Sweigart, There is nothing going wrong. What you are experiencing is an expected behavior. The new version of Nvivo does not use license code to activate, instead activation process links your trial subscription to your mynvivo account which might take a while as mentioned in information dialog. You may want to try again a few minutes later. With regards,
  15. Hello Katherine, Currently you can not import directly into a set, since sets are not acting like folders, instead similar to containers of assigned labels. With regards,
  16. Hello, Since there is no dedicated space for the new " NVivo for Windows" yet, I decided to post my question here. I installed the trial version and initiated a subscription for Collaboration Cloud. After uploading a project as an administrator/workplace manager, I tried to invite users to collaborate. However I could not manage to invite any users. Frankly, help space does not contain any visual guidance for us to refer. Information page of Collaboration cloud says: Invite Collaborators and Workspace managers Workspace owners automatically have Workspace manager permissions in the workspaces they create. Invite other users on your account as Workspace managers or Collaborators by: On the Workspaces screen select a workspace to open it On the Add tab, select a user and the desired role. Optionally, Click Assign role. After I click Add tab, it opens the attached interface. However, "select users" drop-down only allows me to select my own account. Even I tried to search user via typing several options to add others nothing happened. I tried to enter other user's mynvivo login e-mail, Name and Surname, and institutional name that they used while subscribing to Collaboration Cloud. Could you please provide guidance on how can I add another user? With regards,
  17. Hello @alexquse, I did my Ph.D. research with a similarly structured dataset in which I found a workaround. I would suggest you to take a look at my response to a previous question on the same issue. https://forums.nvivobyqsr.com/topic/5782-comparative-case-study-research-with-nvivo/#entry16869 Please feel free to reach me if you have any questions.
  18. Hello, If you would like to use the visuals of text search query, then you need to perform additional coding in order to reach what you want, since text search query does not allow you to filter with a case attribute value. Assuming you have already created your cases for your interviews and case classification attribute for gender, the easiest way would be making a coding query using two criteria: 1) Cases>interviews, 2) Gender>Male. You can set query criteria as in attached picture. Result will provide you all the interviews with male participants. You can save query results as a code with name "Maleinterviewparticipants". Then you can perform a text search for the word "uncle" in this newly created node. Hope this helps.
  19. Hello @rsh, When working with datasets it is always better to format source file before importing into Nvivo. Therefore, the simplest solution for your question will be NOT converting -99 with blanks. Keep it as it is, then import and auto-code as you desire. After that, all you need to do is to find "-99" text in coded text of a certain node using search function, then un-code them all from that very same node. The reference count will be same as number of responses. Hope this helps,
  20. Hello @BWeiz, What you are asking is possible. However, you would need more than one action. Let's say you have an excel file that has 25 different answers from 200 participants. When coding your first question, you realized that participants 3,7,19,34,56,58,77,83,95,111,145, and 198 provided answers that fall into one of your themes. 1) Press "Control" and click above numbers in "ID" column of your imported excel file. You will be selected whole row for those participants. Press Crtl+F2 and code selections as (let's say) "Exciting-R". 2) Create a coding query with using below criteria: a) "Coded at >All Selected Codes or Cases>(Choose Exciting-R) b) "Coded at >All Selected Codes or Cases>(Choose the node you have created for your question 1) 3) Once results are created, click Save Results>Create Results as New Code or Case. Choose Location as you desire then name as "Exciting". 4) Delete node "Exciting-R". You are all set! Hope this helps,
  21. Hello @rrminardi, Currently, Nvivo does not have the feature of exporting coded text as matrix excel tables. However, there is a built-in extract feature named "Coding Summary By Code Extract". It is located under Output>Extracts. Using this you can create an excel table that will both include your codes and coded text. You might need to make some adjustments on this extracted excel file to convert into a format that Stata would recognize. Hope this helps,
  22. Hello Sarchie, The easiest way of getting the results you want is to run a matrix coding query. You may put all your response codes (Q1,Q2, etc.) on rows, and then add contextual codes ( physical violence, emotional violence, etc.) on columns. On your results, each cell represents the overlapping of response and contextual codings as frequencies. Although it is not a list, it will let you do what you described. You can also limit this query down to the desired group of items; for example only look for overlapping of codings in interviews that held in a certain city. Hope this helps.
  23. Hello Sarah, Currently NVivo for MAC does not support framework matrices. We all do eagerly wait for development team bring this feature to Nvivo for MAC. As a workaround you may perform a coding query for each participant (case) and nodes (role/identity, activity, aspects of personality, technology use) , and then export results. The downside of this workaround is you will not reach a summary of the content but you will get exact coded text and you must repeat this query for each participant. I hope this helps,
