Similar filtering possibilities are available throughout the tool.

Source Filters

Focus Recommendations are set up for each source individually. You can set up more that one scale for each source. You can toggle between datasets and individual questions. More on Source filters here.

In the example below we are looking at the rating on each question in the survey individually.

Record Filters

Record filters are specific to your dataset. They mirror the columns in the CSV file you uploaded, with each column acting as a custom filter. More on Record Filters here.

Tag Filters

If you have applied tags to your data you can filter for them using the panel on the left.

Advanced Filters

Advanced filters are available on the Analysis page and in Focus Recommendations, not on Dashboards.

Include comments without opinions - this filter allows you to include one word Topic comments. For example you many have a survey question such as "what is your favourite chocolate bar". A respondent may answer with one word "AERO", instead of saying "Aero is my favourite". This filter allow this comment to be included in the results. Read more about this here.

Further, a response can be multiple words but not contain a sentiment. For example "Wunderbar is Canadian". This statement is not the same as "Wunderbar is delicious" or "Wunderbar is expensive". While we all love Canada, "Canadian" is not a sentiment. This filter will include comments like this.

Include comments without topics - this filter allows you to either display comments containing an Opinion only. For example a review that only says "Great". Read more about this here.

Display blacklisted items - allows you to see the comments that have be added to the blacklist.

Search Filters

Search filters allow you to dive into your data for a more granular analysis. You can search for specific Topics or Opinions by entering them in the Search Bar. More on Search Filters here.

Time Filters

You can access Time Filters in two locations. In addition to the Time Filters present in the Record Filters panel on the left, there’s also a separate Time Filter conveniently located at the upper right of the screen. More on Time Filters here.

Saving your Filterset

You can save your filters in any configuration displayed in the workspace by clicking “Save Filterset”, located beside the filter display. This will save you time, especially if you have a number of filter combinations you plan to reuse.
