NVivo provides tools that help you to collaborate and keep track of the work done by your team members. (NVivo for Mac Version 11.1)
In this topic
- Identify team members with user profiles
- See the coding done by team members (check coding consistency)
- Sort items in List View
NVivo identifies team members based on their 'user profile' which is based on the name and initials that a user enters when they launch NVivo.
Refer to Create, view or change user profiles for more information.
If multiple researchers are coding the same material, you may be interested in the consistency of their coding. You can run a Coding Comparison query to check consistency or coder reliability.
Where coding consistency is important, it may be useful to agree on a node structure early and have regular discussions about how the structure is evolving.
When you are working with items in List View you can see who created or last modified the item. You can sort the List View by user name to see the work done by specific users—click on the column header for Created by or Modified by.
