How to create a broad node with smaller nodes within?

Recommended Posts


New to NVivo, here.  I have done some initial coding and have about 10 nodes.  Now I want to code those nodes into fewer, broader categories. 

What is the best way to do that? 

Thank you in advance!

Hi Yaz,

You can create new nodes representing broader categories. Then move your existing nodes as child nodes of broader parent nodes. Refer to the link below:


You can aggregate all the coding references from the child nodes at the parent node by turning Aggregation on. Refer to the link below:


I hope this helps.

Kind Regards,
