How to go-about diagrams

  1. On the Explore tab, click Diagrams and then Compare Files, Compare Codes or Compare Cases.

  2. Choose the two items you want to compare.

You can use explore diagrams to see:

  • Codes that have coded a particular file—for example, What codes have coded Dorothy's interview? Next, you might explore one particular code to see what other files it has coded.

  • All the files coded to the parent code Attitude. From here, you can explore each child code to see what different attitudes your cases have been coded to.

  • A visual display of the all the connected project items to a selected file, code or case.
