Saving and Coding Excerpts

All text submitted by participants can be highlighted and saved. Those saved excerpts can be coded (or tagged) to organize the related snippets for later review. We refer to this process as saving and coding verbatim excerpts. It's a core function of Recollective as it can be performed anywhere you see text-based responses, including:

Saving and Coding Excerpts

To save an excerpt, simply highlight the desired text as you would normally select content to copy. When you let go of your cursor, a menu will appear with Save Excerpt offered as the first option.

Once saved, you will be shown a list of codes that you can apply to the excerpt for contextualization and tagging purposes (this is optional). You can select multiple codes per excerpt and can also add new codes on the fly (with optional descriptions) from the Code Book using the Manage Codes option.

Commenting on Excerpts

Comments made on an excerpt are backroom comments seen only by other Study Admins. They can be used to start a conversation about the excerpt or used to make a note about the verbatim itself.

Note you can use @mentions to trigger a notification to other administrators or to simply reference specific participants. Participants will not be notified of mentions within backroom comments as they are hidden. Learn more about Mentions .

Excerpting Video Transcripts

Just like any text-based response, you can use the excerpting tool to save a verbatim from a video's resulting transcript. Since the excerpt is tied to the video's response, there will be a resulting video clip produced. 

This feature allows you to prepare coded video clips for export that can be used to put together a participant highlight reel for example and can be accessed in the Excerpts Report from the Study Admin menu.
