Hey guys — using NVivo 12 for Mac to code a number of transcripts, and hoping to attach name/location/date to each, to be able to make comparisons over time, etc. Having trouble with File Classification sheets — the existing files never seem to be found, whether the source files (transcripts) are imported before or after the classification sheet. I've imported a CSV with names identical to the file names, but they never merge. I've tried adding to an existing classification with attributes for each column, or creating a new classification — nothing seems to work. How can I use a .csv to actually add metadata to the files I have (or can import)? Thanks! <a href="https://ibb.co/zJKPQRb"><img src="https://i.ibb.co/TLzPY8R/Screen-Shot-2020-04-27-at-5-49-21-PM.png" alt="Screen-Shot-2020-04-27-at-5-49-21-PM" border="0" /></a>
I have a (.xlsx, or .csv) dataset with about 250 respondents, including demographic info and, in one column, full transcripts. Each transcript is about an hour long, and so the viewing format of 100 entries per page is cumbersome. The hour-plus transcripts are also typically in single paragraphs, and so the code-striping seems to stripe the entire cell in the dataset for every applicable code, instead of just the line or two that are relevant. Would you import every row in the dataset as a separate file? If so, would the recommendation be to import them all as documents (.txt or .doc), instead of datasets? Huge thanks. Glad for any advice.
Hello, my apologies for the length of this question/topic. I am just embarking on a longitudinal, mainly qualitative, research project (5yrs) into the music industry and will be using Nvivo for Windows licensed through Canterbury Christ Church University (not server version) where I am a Senior Lecturer. This will be my first project using Nvivo. I use a Windows 7 PC at home, a networked Windows 7 PC at work (with RDS if I need it) and also when on the move use a MacBook Pro with OSX Mavericks with Parallels and Windows 7. The MacBook has been upgraded to 16GB RAM and 1TB HD. I would like to use Nvivo on all three platforms (not at the same time) and am looking for the safest and quickest way to share the substantial number of large project media file(s) My concerns are: 1) where should media files (transcripts, audio/video interviews etc.) be stored in relation to the main project file? 2) what would be the safest way to make these available to each platform (again, never at the same time) – large fast USB 3.0 stick, ext Firewire HD, Dropbox (or similar) or any other suggestions? 3) what happens if I open a project and the media files aren’t available? 4) if Nvivo can't see original media files but for instance sees a connected transcript, will it then simply include them next time they are available i.e. when my large 'media sources' storage is connected? I am used to regular backing up in multiple locations so will always be able to recover data should I go down the ultra portable (e.g. usb) route. Additionally, I intend to introduce some 'big data' analysis (streamed music listening patterns) for which I will be using other more appropriate software. Has anyone experience in introducing 'big data' findings into the Nvivo mix? All suggestions gratefully received, many thanks…Peter
