How to Analyse Text?

Text allows respondents to write free text answers in response to a question or prompt. This is helpful for when you can't predict what answer your respondents will give, or you don't want to provide set answers. You only want natural responses.

Text Preview

Text Analysis

Your respondent's text answers will appear in a Word Cloud which shows all unique words captured across all respondents defined in your pre filter. The word size is relative to the frequency of that word in your text answers, so below, we can see that the word "weather" appeared most, followed by "hot", "warm", "cold", and "winter".

Your question's "Total Answered" value will appear in the bottom right corner under the wordcloud (red box)

Your respondent's text answers will also appear in FULL in the list of answers underneath the word cloud.

Search Bar

You can use the search bar to narrow your results in both the list below AND the wordcloud above. E.g.

Search Wordcloud for "cold"

Search List for "cold"
