Chart style naming convention
There are a number of different chart styles supplied with Snap XMP. When using different chart styles, the style name indicates which show options you need to select.
- If the name contains Counts then select Show counts.
- If the name contains Percents you need to select one of the show percents options.
- If the name contains Transposed then select Transpose.
Please note: In a chart, you should select either counts or percents, but not both.
In the example, the chart style is Horizontal Bar Percent Labelled Transposed. This indicates that one of the show percents options should be selected, in this case Show Analysis percents is used. The Transpose option is also selected.
Lists are generally used to display comments or free format text responses. The following example shows a list analysis for a question asking for customers’ comments.
When you click the Apply button, this displays the list.
Word Clouds are used to show important or regularly occurring words in the comments or free format text responses. The more often a word appears in the comments then the larger the word is displayed in the Word Cloud.
The following example shows a word cloud analysis showing words from a question asking for customers’ comments.
When you click the Apply button, this displays the word cloud.
