Insights is an automated analysis tool that helps you find specific (group of) inputs or analyze inputs you have gathered on a project. The actions taken in this tool will not impact the rest of the platform structure and are not visible to the participants.
This article focuses on providing advanced tips. For an introduction to Insights - please visit this article for more technical information about how we use automated analytics - please visit this article.
How to use Exploratory View
The first thing you will see once you have created Insights is what we call the "Exploratory View." On this view, you can browse and discover the participants' inputs by
using the interactive keyword visualization,
by filtering on tags, or
by using the search box.
You can use Exploratory View for two primary actions;
Using in combination With Tags to search for specific inputs
Combining Tags that are already available with the keywords allows you to look for particular inputs that apply to both or have a closer look at the tags you have already created.
For example, if you pick the Tag "Arts & Community" and keyword "Youth"; the result will filter the list of posts that are related to the keyword "Youth" under the "Arts & Community" Tag. This new list of inputs can be saved as a new Tag.
Using Keywords to categorize your inputs into Tags efficiently
If you have not used the default Tags or find the currently available Tags on the platform irrelevant for your analysis, you can use the exploratory view to search and create tags quickly.
You can start by exploring the more prominent keywords which represent more frequently discussed concepts. Then by picking a keyword or similar keywords, you can quickly categorize them into Tags. With this action, you can organize hundreds of inputs within minutes.
For example,you can select keywords such as "waste", "recycling", and name the Tag as "Waste Management". All the inputs that are relevant to "waste" and "recycling" will now be categorized under "Waste Management".
Using Dashboard View
The Dashboard View is where you explore, analyze, categorize and manage the inputs. You can quickly click on the inputs to have a detailed look at individual inputs and toggle between inputs with UP or DOWN arrow keys on your keyboard.
Creating Tags to categorize efficiently
Detecting inputs under a Tag
If you were to create manual Tags - it is advisable to give them descriptive labels at the start. Our algorithm uses the labels as the "search word" to look for relevant inputs in the project and suggest them to you. You can rename it to a label that is fit for reporting purposes at the end.
For example; Using "Car Accidents" as a tag name would get you more accurate automated suggestions than "Mobility issues".
