Describe clusters

Our topics analysis tool has been enhanced with a new feature called "Describe Clusters." This feature significantly improves the way we group and name clusters of free text based on their similarity and the topics they cover.

Previous Method:

  • Previously, clusters were named by combining significant terms from each cluster. While this method was functional, it often resulted in names that were difficult to read and did not effectively communicate the insights.

New Improvement:

  • With the integration of OpenAI models, we now generate titles for clusters that are much more readable and contextually accurate. This enhancement takes into account the context of all paragraphs, ensuring that the titles are not only more human-readable but also more meaningful.

Example:

  • When analyzing texts related to product management, if a cluster frequently mentions the word "design," the new feature will likely identify it as "UX/UI Design," aligning it more closely with the field of product management rather than general design.

Applications:

  • This feature is highly beneficial for organizing and understanding reviews, transcripts, emails, survey answers, book paragraphs, and any other free text. It provides clear and concise cluster titles that enhance the overall analysis and communication of insights.

We are excited to bring you this update, which aims to make your text analysis experience smoother and more insightful.

Dear Graphext Users,


The Detail View 🔍 in the Graph and the New Node Cards🃏are now live for you to explore! 


🔍 Detail View in the Graph:

Introducing a brand new mode in the Graph - the Detail View! Now, when you dive into your data, you can open a convenient side drawer right on your screen. This feature allows you to explore detailed information about each node in your graph with ease. Imagine having a magnifying glass 🔎 for your data - you can hover over any node, and the side panel instantly updates to display comprehensive information, making it ideal for digesting longer text reviewsimages or exploring complex data relationships effortlessly.


🃏 New Node Cards:

With the new Node Cards, you have the power to customize each node's information by adding as many variables as you need.

Select top categories in plot and use your custom color

Dear Graphext Users,

We've Got Some Great New Features for You!

  • 🌈 Customizable Plot Colors:
  • 📊 Focus on What Matters - Top/Bottom N Categories:

🌈 Customizable Plot Colors:

Now, you can add a personal touch to your plots by choosing any color you like. This is perfect for aligning your visualizations with your company's branding or simply picking a color that fits the mood of your presentation. It's a small change, but we believe it can make a big difference in how your data is perceived and understood.


📊 Focus on What Matters - Top/Bottom N Categories:

We understand that sometimes less is more. That's why we're introducing the ability to show just the top or bottom N categories in your plots. This feature will help you create cleaner, more focused visualizations, making it easier for your audience to get the key takeaways without getting lost in the details.


We can't wait to see the amazing visualizations you'll create with these new tools. As always, we're here to listen to your feedback and make Graphext even better for you.

Cheers,
The Graphext Team 💙

Streamlined Category Renaming and Merging

Dear Graphext Users,

What’s New?

Enhanced Category Renaming and Merging:

  • Direct Renaming: You can now rename categories directly within our interface. This straightforward functionality allows for quick adjustments to your dataset, ensuring that your categories accurately reflect your data.
  • Efficient Merging: When you name two categories the same, Graphext will automatically combine them into one. This is particularly useful for cleaning up datasets where the same item might be listed under different names, like various job titles (Product Manager, PM, Product Mgmt, etc…)  that essentially mean "Product Manager."


Coming soon! The Future is ✨AI-Powered:

We're not stopping here! Get ready for an upcoming feature where our AI will suggest merging similar concepts. Imagine the AI detecting and suggesting merging "Advisor" and "Adviser" or "E-mail" and "Email," helping you to further clean and organize your data efficiently.


Seamless Integration:

These new category management tools are designed to fit smoothly into your existing Graphext workflow. Renaming and merging are straightforward, quick, and won’t interrupt your data analysis.

We hope these updates make your data work more efficient and straightforward. Your feedback is always welcome as we continue to improve Graphext.

Interactive plots resizing

Dear Graphext users,

Say hi to interactive plot resizing! At Graphext, we understand that the impact of a good visualization is not just in the data it represents, but also in how it's presented. Recognizing that different visualizations require different aspect ratios for optimal clarity and impact, we've now made it possible for you to adjust the size of your plots interactively.

What's New?

  • Interactive Resizing: You can now click and drag the edge of your plots to resize them. This means you can easily switch between landscape and portrait orientations or fine-tune the dimensions to get just the right ratio for your data visualization needs.
  • Adaptable Visuals: Whether your data looks best in a wide, landscape format or a tall, vertical orientation, you have complete control over how your plots are displayed. This flexibility ensures that you can present your data in the most effective and visually appealing way.

Why This Matters:

We've all been there – tweaking numbers, trying to get the visualization size just right, only to end up with a format that doesn't quite do the data justice. It can be a frustrating and time-consuming process. That's why we prioritized developing a solution that not only saves time but also enhances your ability to present data in the best light possible.

Seamless Exporting:

Once you've configured the perfect size for your plot, exporting it is just as straightforward. This seamless transition from customization to export means your workflow is smoother and faster, allowing you to share your insights with others more efficiently.

Fast multiple segments selection

Dear Graphext users,

This week at Graphext, we're introducing a series of keyboard shortcuts designed to make your filtering process in the cross filters significantly more efficient. We understand that working with data often involves dealing with variables that have a wide range of categories and selecting or deselecting these manually can be time-consuming. That's why we've implemented these shortcuts to streamline your workflow.

What's New?

  • Selecting a Range of Categories: Now, you can easily select all categories between two points with just a couple of clicks. Click on the first category, then click on the last category while holding down the SHIFT key. This will select both categories and everything in between.
  • Adding or Removing Categories: To add or remove a single category from your selection, simply hold down the CMD key (on Mac) or the CTRL key (on Windows) while clicking the category. This feature is particularly handy when you want to maintain most categories but exclude just a few, especially with variables that have a high number of categories.

Why This Matters:

These enhancements are all about saving you time and making your data analysis workflow smoother. By allowing for quicker selection and deselection of categories, we hope to significantly reduce the time you spend on manual tasks, freeing you up to focus on the more critical aspects of your analysis.
