                                    Text Analysis: Measure Response Sentiment

                                    Reviewing every single open-ended response offers plenty of informative insights, but it can also be very time consuming. If you have a large number of responses and want to get a faster look at some common points and sentiments, Text Analysis can help.

                                    With both a Word Cloud and easy to understand graphs and tables, this report delivers powerful results in a fraction of the time you’d need to read every comment. Examine common topics, then drill down on positive, neutral, and negative content so you can better understand the important takeaways.

                                    Here’s how:

                                    1. Select your project and click on Report.
                                    2. From the Report menu bar, choose Text Analysis.
                                    3. Click continue to prepare your data for the report. The time required to prepare your data will vary based on the number of responses collected. While the data is prepared for analysis, you may utilize other platform features.
                                    4. If you have included multiple open-ended questions, click on the filter icon on the right to filter by question(s).
                                    5. Review and drill down on results displayed.

                                    Overall Metrics

                                    Across the top, you’ll see cards with the following metrics:

                                    • Negative Responses
                                    • Neutral Responses
