Pulling QualLaborate Reports
There are a variety of reports that you can pull from your QualLaborate project. This lesson goes through the steps to pull those different reports.
Access the QualLaborate Tab in the Project
In the project, click on the "QualLaborate" tab on the left hand navigation (1)
Once you click on the QualLaborate tab, you'll be able to see all of the activities within your QualLaborate Project. To view the reports for a particular activity click on "View Report" (2).
Navigation Within the Reports Page
We're going to walk through the reports page. We will go into each option in detail.
1) Participant Instructions: A reminder of the instructions for this heat map. This helps clarify what tools the participants were instructed to use and how they were instructed to use them.
2) Markup Tools: This list shows all of the markup tools available for this particular project. The check boxes next to each tool shows the tools that are currently being viewed on the heat map and the user markups that are displayed on the far right side of the screen.
3) Highlight Tools: This list shows all of the highlight tools available for this particular project. The check boxes next to each highlighter show the highlights that are visible on the heat map as well as listed under the user markups on the right hand side.
4) The Toggle All option unselects or selects all of the markup and highlight tools.
5) One color heat map selects one tool at a time to show you the heat from just that particular tool.
6) Show marks as flags shows you the exact mark where someone clicked or highlighted.
7) The First Impressions graph shows the distribution of likes, dislikes, neutrals, and the percentage of participants who have yet to comment. If you scroll down, there is a "More" option that opens a light box with all of the first impression comments.
8) Update View: You won't see the "Update View" button until you make a change to one of the above options. Then "Update View" will appear, which refreshes your screen and shows you the options that you have selected on the heat map.
9) Heat Range: A heat map (which is labeled as 20 here) gives an area of influence to every click. You can control how large or small that area of influence is. The larger the number on the Heat Range, the larger the area of influence. The smaller the number on the Heat Range, the smaller the area of influence. When you make a change to view it on the heat map, you'll need to click "Update View."
10) View options: You can increase the zoom or grab the image and move it around the screen to view different aspects of the image. You can also use the "Select Range" button to highlight a portion of your image and only pull the marks from that selected area.
