  1. I am going to be analyzing some survey data using Nvivo. There are 3 open-ended questions that will be the codeable fields, and 4 classifying fields. My challenge is that for two of the classifying fields (location of work and place of work), these questions were a "select all that apply" type of question, i.e. for the location of work the respondent could select one or more of five areas identified. I am wondering how best to organize my data for importing into Nvivo so that I can later view my coding by the respondent attributes. Should I have multiple columns with the same question to capture information from those who gave more than one response? Or some other approach? This is using Nvivo 10 for Windows.
  2. I would love to see the next version of Nvivo include the ability to edit a dataset once imported. The ability to edit text in the fields (especially in the codable fields) would be a great start. It would also be great to have the ability to add/remove columns at a later date. Another functionality I would appreciate is the ability to add more information to a dataset source. For example - if you import some survey responses, and then a week later you have more responses to the same survey, it would be great to be able to add these to the same source rather than having to create a new source each time. Is there any work being done to improve Nvivo's functionality in these areas?
