During the research process in consider.ly, you gather raw data in notes and apply tags. In your analysis, you will spot bits of your data that contribute to your initial research hypotheses. This means that you will ultimately gain new knowledge about a user’s pain points, concerns, needs, issues, and wants – these are your research insights.
This article will teach you about creating insights from the insights dashboard and on the fly.
In consider.ly, insights can be seen as the conclusions of your research. This might be a verified hypothesis like “Users are delighted by the new design”, a newly spotted usability defect like “The search is too complex”, and so on.
Creating insights from the insights dashboard
One way to create new insights is from the insights dashboard in your project. Just as in notes, you can put any information that’s relevant into an insight – that might be an explanation of your interpretation, a sketch, a highlight video, and so on.
- Go to the insights dashboard.
- Click on the “+” on the right side of your existing insights.
A window for editing your insight will appear.
- Click on “Untitled insight” to give your insight a title.
- Enter your desired text.
Your text is automatically saved while typing.
↳ For formatting text, adding hyperlinks, and more, see the relating article.
Creating insights on the fly
- When a text passage is tagged, the used tags are shown on the right side of the note.
Click on the tag you want to link to an insight.
A dropdown menu appears.
- Click on “Attach to insight”.
An overview window of all your insights across all projects appears.
- At the top of the overview window, you can enter text. Enter your desired insight name.
As you start typing, the suggested insights disappear and a dropdown menu appears.
- Click on the dropdown menu to select the project in which you want to create the insight.
- Hit ENTER to submit your choice.
The selected text passage will be put at the bottom of your insight as a special “reference” element.
