Analyze across projects

With Condens, you can connect research evidence across projects. You can include evidence from another study in your current research project or conduct a meta-study - a new project without any raw data only using evidence from other projects already available in Condens.

The Basics

  • Tags help you to structure research data and prepare it for further analysis. You can assign tags to any piece of raw data like notes, transcripts, images, or videos. This is then called a highlight.

  • You can apply project tags or global tags to research data. By default, tags in Condens are project-specific and can only be used in the project they are created in. To connect research evidence across projects, we use global tags, which are available in all projects.

  • When working on a research project, you can access the Conclusion(s) of your current project at any stage via the icon on the right of your screen. You can open this area in a split-screen mode to add findings at any stage. The Conclusions of your project will also be accessible when you open the global tags or the search.

Add highlights from other projects via Global Tags

  1. Select a project in which you want to summarize your findings. You now have the Conclusion available on the right side of your screen via the icon.

  2. Select a global tag or global tag group to see all the highlights associated with it.

  3. You can use the search bar to filter and sort the highlights for further analysis.

  4. Select the highlight or multiple highlights and add it to your Conclusion on the right side of your screen via drag & drop.

Add highlights from other projects via Project Tags

It's possible to add highlights from other projects that were tagged only within the project itself. Please note that we recommend using global tags for highlights that have relevance beyond the original research study. However, you may need to bring project highlights from another project that isn't tagged with global tags to your Conclusion nevertheless.

  1. Select a project in which you want to summarize your findings. You now have the Conclusion available on the right side of your screen via the icon.

  2. Open the Tags section and head to the tab All Project Tags.

  3. You can either choose the research project of interest or use the search bar to find a specific project tag.

  4. Choose a tag or tag group to see all connected pieces of evidence.

  5. Select the highlight or multiple highlights and add it to your Conclusion on the right side of your screen via drag & drop.

Add highlights from other projects via Search

When working on a research project, you can always access the Search. Type a keyword, and you can browse all relevant elements in Condens. You can filter for projects, sessions, tags, concrete highlights, participants, and Conclusions to find what you're looking for.

  • When you find relevant highlights, add them to your Conclusion via Drag & Drop.

  • When you find relevant information that is not tagged as a highlight, you can access the raw data directly and add a tag to it.
