What´s new in Update 4

Manage your coding with codebook
This latest update lets you see a list all of your nodes and their descriptions. This way, you can review how your research is progressing, review early themes and evaluate your analysis.

Export a summary of your coding structure to Microsoft Word or Excel so that you can share it with others.

codebook
 

You can show nodes and sub-nodes within your project, their descriptions, a count of the coding references and the number of sources coded so that you can discuss and align coding practices with your team members or describe your coding methods with your supervisor.
Keep the codebook by your side as you code the source materials. This way you will remember your Nodes and never waste time wondering which node to use.

Explore your coding at the click of a button
When you’re looking at your nodes, get direct access to word clouds, charts and queries to explore your coding at the click of a button.
Now you can:

  • See if there is overlap with other themes
  • Find the most common words people are using to describe this theme
  • See what the broader context is
  • Find any commonalities or differences between the people who mention this theme

 
Simply open a node and select an option from the Node tab:
explore coding

 

Edit and produce high resolution charts
Thanks to your feedback, we’ve made charts even easier to work with. Whether it’s reviewing the coding in an interview or checking the demographic spread of research participants – charts give you a visual way to explore your data.
From a centralized Chart ribbon, you can now change the format and edit charts. You can also export charts at a higher resolution – so they look even better in reports and presentations.

high quality coding


What´s new in Update 3?

Research on-the-go with NVivo and OneNote

  • Edit after Import
    It's tricky to get your survey results into perfect working order before import into NVivo - after all, you're excited and itching to get started.
    That's why this update offers you the ability to make changes after import. For example, you can edit the wording of your questions or move columns around.

  • Ready, Set, Qualtrics
    Qualtrics is one of the market-leaders in online surveys. Use your Qualtrics account to bring your survey results directly into NVivo for analysis.

Visualize the results of automated insights analysis straight away

  • Auto code material as you import
    If you're using NVivo 11 Plus for Windows there's even more to get excited about. The import wizard can automatically code themes and sentiment in your open-ended survey responses.

  • Visualize automated theme and sentiment coding
    NVivo 11 Plus for Windows now gives you a new way to explore automated insights. If you've coded your material by theme or sentiment - you can see the results in a hierarchical chart. For example, take a look at a hierarchy chart based on sentiment analysis - you can quickly see the dominant sentiment (positive, negative or neutral) for each question in your survey.

  • Automated Insights just got smarter
    NVivo Plus can find and automatically code the themes in your research material and, if you're working in English, the latest update streamlines the process even further. NVivo will now merge sub-themes with stemmed forms (catching fish, fish catching, catch fish) so that you end-up with a tidy, more manageable list of themes.
