Canvs now offers the ability of Linear Graph Analysis with Linear View for MRX built into your MRX Content Page and available for Tracker Datasets. Users will be able to analyze change over time between their Waves and have the ability to modify their metrics and break down their results.
Note: This feature is only displayed on Tracker Datasets (datasets with Waves). You must have two or more Waves selected for the Linear View to appear on your Content Page. Non-tracker datasets or datasets with only 1 wave selected, will still have the Treemap as the Default view and not have access to the Linear View.
Switching between the Treemap and Linear Graph
On any Tracker dataset, users will have the option to switch between the Treemap and the Linear / time-series chart.
*On non-tracking datasets or with only 1 wave, this toggle on the left side of the chart will not display at all. You will only see the Treemap chart.
Interactions with Chart Selections and Smart Search Bar Activity
When switching between the Treepmap and Linear visualizations, any selections previously applied on the charts will be removed
i.e., if a user had clicked on the Enjoy tile within the Emotions Treemap, that selection would be lost when switching to the Linear visualization
This will also adjust the hero metrics, Ranker section, and Open Ends list as selections from the chart will essentially be removed
Any filters to the page made via the Smart Search Bar will still be applied when switching between the Treemap and Linear view.
MRX Tracker Visualization: The Linear Chart
The toggles for Summary, Topics, and Emotional Reactions will still be present, allowing users to switch between each of the views.
By default, we will show the top 8 performing metrics (top Emotions, top Topics, or top Codes or Nets for Summary) when viewing the linear chart but the user may remove or change these metrics via Modify Metrics. These top metrics will be displayed above the chart and each has its own color assigned to them.
Top Emotions Example
Top Topics Example
Top Codes Example
Top Nets Example
The displayed data on the Linear View will default to Rate format, with the option to toggle to Volume in Modify Metrics. You can see the Volume # or Percentages displayed on the left-hand side of the chart.
The Edit Waves button on the bottom right of the chart allows you to quickly select which Waves you want to be displayed on the page.
Click on any of the metrics in the Legend to hide/show them from being displayed on the Linear View chat.
Dislike, Disappointed, and Mixed Emotions are hidden from the chart below.
Note: Any User Preferences specified by the user will carry through to these new visualizations, specific to the Summary linear chart.
Adjusting the displayed metrics
The linear view will allow for up to 8 displayed metrics total and will function similarly to the Modify Metrics button in MRX Compare.
You will see a Modify Metrics button on the right-hand side of the chart once switched over to the Linear view. Click on it to open your Metric Selection window.
Depending on the metric type you are looking at (Summary, Topics, or Emotions), you can only add metrics of that same type. You can add any number of custom metrics up to 8 of them.
i.e., if you are looking at the linear view of Topics, you will only be able to search for and add Topics to the visualization
For Summary, the user may display either Nets or Codes
Users may go back and switch metric types (Emotions, Topics, Summary) via the buttons above the chart.
Quick Picks are available for each metric type as follows.
You will see an option on the right to toggle between Volume and Rate/percentage.
Total Volume and Emotional Reactions are only available to display when displaying data as Volume.
Emotion Rate is only available to display when displaying data as Rate.
Breakdown your results
Breakdown allows users to explore their filters in a linear format for the first time on the platform when focused on a single metric.
When only a single metric is selected, the Breakdown feature will be shown as available in Modify Metrics.
Users may only breakdown by a single close ended question (cross-tab/filter) at a time.
In the example above, the Emotion "Love" will be broken down by the Cross Tab "# Of Visits" using the 5 available answer choices for the Filter.
Breakdown can include any of the filters originally loaded into the survey and will display eight or fewer answer options on the Linear View chart.
i.e., If a filter has 50 answer options (Ages that aren’t grouped for example), it will be difficult to read on the chart.
If you have multiple answer options on your cross-tab users can select from the filter which answer options they want to display (you can select 8 or fewer).
Please note that the answer choices in the Legend will be shown by volume for the choice selected when filling out the Close-End. It will not be displayed alphabetically/numerically.
For example, as seen below, 5-7 # of visit answer choices received the most entries, 2-4 second most, 8-10 third most, etc.
Breakdown: Emotion "Love" by # Of Visits
Linear Chart Marker Selection and Interaction
Users are able to click on individual markers within the Linear View chart, which will then filter the page like the experience users have when making selections from the Treemap.
Multiselection is also allowed as well to let users explore sections of a significant shift.
If multiple selections are made, all waves and metrics selected will filter the page in the same manner selections from the treemaps filters the page.
Take your filtering even further and utilize our Canvs Smart Search to narrow down your results with custom queries.
Users will be able to Edit the specific Open Ends that have been selected.
Within the bullets of the linear view, a Tooltip will appear that provides additional information on each point. You will be able to see the count of mentions in the wave as well comparison to the previous wave that appears on your Linear graph.
Emotions tooltip (information includes Reaction Rate and what the Emotion was driven by):
Topics tooltip (information includes Vartions of the Topic):
Summary tooltip (information includes if it was generated automatically with AI-Powered Codes):
To remove a selection(s), the user can click on the marker once again, or use the Clear button above the visualization to remove any and all selections on the Linear View chart.
Exporting the Linear View Chart
Exporting the Linear View chart in PowerPoint is available for users within your Export options.
