Creating Framework Matrices and charting data in NVivo for Mac

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to create a framework matrices and chart my data so that I can summarize what each of my participants have said with regard to particular topics. I have attached a picture below of an example of what I'm trying to achieve. I have found videos online but so far I think they only work for people with windows and the framework matrices tab doesn't show up for me under internals. Is there a solution to do this for Mac users also?

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,

Hi Sarah,

Another workaround is to run a Matrix Coding Query & open each cell of the matrix to copy the references to an Excel file manually.

We use an online tool called Canny to gather all our customer feedback.May I request that you click on the following link https://nvivo.canny.io/ & share your feature suggestion here by creating a post. You can also vote on posts created by other NVivo users. When you post or vote on a feature, you will start receiving notifications via Canny on the planned/in progress/completed actions.

Kind Regards,
