Preview using Themes

Themes are now available and displayed by default in the Explain tab when previewing a pattern. Themes do a much better job at aggregating the verbatim text than Keywords or Word Associations, making it faster to get to an insight. They also work great with the new Lift function.

Note - Keywords and Word Associations are still available by clicking on the heading of the first column in the Explain tab.

New Comparison Function: Lift

The Lift function is a powerful new tool for explaining patterns in Ipiphany. Use it to help expose the root causes of issues.

Lift calculates the amount a pattern is over indexing (appearing more frequently than normal) for your selection or filter. A lift of 1 means that it appears at a normal rate, a lift of 3 means that it occurs 3 times as often in your selection than it does in the overall data.

Lift is available in the:

  • Explain tab of the Preview Panel

  • Chart settings popup, 'Where' field

  • Axis, Color or Size settings of charts

  • Table

Note: Lift is only available when previewing a pattern or when a filter has been applied.
