Use the Insights Tool to edit an Analysis and view the analysis report. An Analysis in Ipiphany is a place to organise the patterns that Ipiphany returns into meaningful insights. 

Mode Switch

The mode switch is used to switch the insight tool between View, Edit, and Categorize modes. When opening an analysis the default mode is 'View', when creating a new analysis the default mode is 'Categorize'.

View Mode

View mode summarizes the findings of an analysis in an easy to consume report style format. Simply click on each individual insight to display its details in the preview panel.

Edit Mode

Use the Edit mode to review the insights within an analysis, set their insight type, and edit their aspects.

Set an insights type to clearly indicate its purpose. The following insight types are currently available:

  • Category
  • Painpoint
  • Highlight
  • General Insight
  • Topic

'Aspects' can be added to Insights when their type is not 'Category'. These are features of the insight, such as 'Cause', 'Suggestions', and specific problems that combine to form a painpoint, highlight, general insight, or topic.

Every good painpoint should contain at least a few aspect as they help to tell the story and make it much easier to fix.

Tip - Make sure you add a pattern to each aspect as it will only display if it has at least 1 frequency in the current filter settings

Categorize Mode

Use the Categorize mode to easily add new insights in an analysis. This is the best mode to use when creating an analysis from scratch.

  • Give the analysis a name and description by clicking in the title and description area
  • Create insights by dragging patterns from the right hand side into the main area or use the  'New Insight' row to type them in directly
  • Expand an insight by hovering over it and clicking the down arrow icon, you can then add an insight description or edit its filter definition
