Getting started

  • The NVivo workspace is designed using Microsoft user interface guidelines, so it looks familiar and is easy to use.
  • There’s a range of resources to get you started and keep you on track. From video tutorials to guides and online help.

Working with your information

  • NVivo handles virtually any data, including Word documents, PDFs, pictures, database tables, spreadsheets, audio files, videos (imported video files and YouTube content), social media data and web pages.
  • As you work through your information, highlight key points, allowing for quick recall or analysis later. Take this a step further with NVivo ‘nodes’ - like virtual filing boxes they allow you to see all information on a theme summarized together.
  • Interchange information between NVivo and other applications like Microsoft Word and Excel, IBM SPSS Statistics, SurveyMonkey, EndNote and Evernote.
  • NVivo lets you work with information in any combination of languages, allowing for true global collaboration.
  • Choose to work with an English, Chinese (Simplified Chinese), French, German, Japanese, Portuguese or Spanish user interface.
  • Store your project database and research materials as a single file, making your project completely portable. Or store large media files separately and link them to your project.

Making sense of your information

  • NVivo’s powerful query tools let you uncover subtle trends, and automated analysis features let you sit up above your data and drill down into it. For example, search for an exact word or words that are similar in meaning to quickly test theories.
  • NVivo lets you track your ideas and steps with ease. Use annotations to jot down your thoughts, create memos to capture detailed observations or use links to ‘glue’ items with similar themes together.
  • Prefer pictures to words? NVivo lets you display connections, ideas and findings using a range of visualization tools such as charts, maps and models. What’s more, you can easily view the live data behind them.

Sharing your findings

  • Want to share your findings with others? There’s no need to retype or reformat your information with NVivo. Your conclusions, query results, models and charts can all be exported or simply copied and pasted into reports and presentations.
  • NVivo also lets you export your findings as web pages, so you can share files and findings with clients or colleagues who don’t have NVivo.

“I think what NVivo does for us at the headline level, is that we don’t have to spend a lot of time reading material from one area to draw a conclusion, we can pull back and have a much higher view of what the issues are from a client’s point of view.”
