Aspects can have one of 3 settings that determine how they contribute to their Insights.

Contribute to Insight

The Aspects filters are included in the Insights filters. This is useful for sub-problems or sub-benefits of an insight that you want to add to the insight without having to first add as an insight pattern.

This is the default type for Aspects created in the Sections: 'Problem' or 'Benefit'.

Filtered by Insight

The Aspect is filtered by the Insights filters. This is useful when you find a more general Aspect pattern and you want it to include the Insight in its definition to make it more specific. e.g.

Insight = Boarding

Aspect = Good Service

With 'Filtered by Insight' set the Aspect will return records that match both 'Boarding' AND 'Good Service'.

This is the default type for Aspects created in the Sections: 'Context', 'Cause', or 'Impact'.

Independent from Insight

The Aspect is completely separate from the Insight. This is useful for contextual information that you do not want included in the definition of the Insight.

This is the default type for Aspects created in the Sections: 'Solution', 'Improvement', or 'Suggestion'.

How do I control these settings on an aspect?

To control how an Aspect contributes to its Insight, use the icon in the right side of the aspect in the Insights > Edit screen:

What do I do if I want an individual filter within an Aspect to use a different setting?

You can override the Aspect's setting on an individual Aspect Filter by right-clicking the filter chip and setting it directly.
