Data Formatting in v4: General Guidelines

Last Updated: Apr 13, 2018

SAVE your data as a comma-separated (CSV) spreadsheet, with each row containing a single text entry and its metadata.  

LABEL every column with the type of data/metadata it contains (see below).  Data columns without correct headers will not be processed.  

v4 Projects: Data & Metadata

This column contains your text data and is the only required data column.
subset or subset_[FIELD]
A subset is a sub-group of data within your overall project. For instance, if you are analyzing the results of a survey, possible subsets might include star ratings or respondents' age, state/country, gender, department, etc.  Label metadata columns with “subset” or “subset_[FIELD]” for those subsets belonging to groups (e.g. “subset_NPS” or “subset_Country of Origin”). Subsets can be analyzed, but not joined or intersected in v4. You may have multiple subset columns, and up to 10,000 subsets per project.
Analyze trends and other time-based information by adding a column of date metadata to your project.  We accept most standard date formats, with the exception of the DD/MM/YYYY format.  

You can add a title or identifier to each piece of text data.  The title will be viewable but not analyzed with the text.  The title field can be used to display identifying metadata about the document, such as identifying information about the author, or another unique ID.
