The Reader for Stored Information
The Reader is a great place to go to read and consult the information that has been stored or validated into your Digimind Intelligence projects. You can use the filters on the left of the screen to narrow down the information so that it focuses in on what is most interesting or useful for you. To find out more about working with filters in The Reader please read this post.
Once you have created the display of information you need, there are many other ways of interacting with the Reader interface.
read the full story
To read the full story, click on the title. The whole article as it has been saved into Digimind Intelligence will open in a new window (See below for more details).
Hover over the summary of the information to reaveal further actions:
- like: indicate you find the information useful or interesting
- edit: modify the article (you need to have the correct access rights to the information to do this)
- delete: remove the article from Digimind Intelligence (you need to have the correct access rights to the information to do this)
- note: leave a comment on the information for other users to see
The access rights for information are based on the access rights to the project. A user with reader rights only will not be able to either edit or delete any information. A use with tracker rights to this project will be able to edit or delete any information he or she has validated or stored him/herself. A project manager will be able to edit or delete any information stored in that project.
Information will be presented in chronological order, with the latest information at the top of the page. You can click on the sort button to present the information by number of comments, number of likes, etc..
Digimind Intelligence uses three dates for any piece of information. You can sort by:
- creation date: the date on which the information was stored into DI.12
- update date: the date on which the information was last edited or modified, this can often be the same as the creation date
- publication date: the date on which the information was first posted onto the internet
The actions button will allow you to move, copy or delete more than one piece of information at a time. This will be very useful if you need to restructure a project and would therefore like to add or merge folders.
You will be able to perform these bulk actions if you have the correct access rights to the information (see notes above).
Information can be copied or moved from one project at a time. You may select to copy or move information to more than one other project. This will lead to duplications of information stored on your DI.12 base.
Only information from the project or folder you have selected using the filters will be deleted.
publish a report
Also in the actions button, you will be able to prepare a word, pdf or excel report of the information you have selected.
All users can create reports, includind users with reader access.
Navigate around the Reader - Analysis for Stored Information
DI.12 contains some very powerful and useful analysis, to help you gain insights into the information that has been stored on any given subject. You can either run the analysis on all of the information in your projects, or you can filter the information using the filters on the left of the Reader. This will lead to more refined and focused analysis.
All of our analysis are fully interactive. You can click on any part of the timelines or on any of the interesting concepts. This will open the information that lies behind this point, and you can then read the information, and if you need to click to conduct further analysis.
To access the analysis for stored information, click on analysis.
There are 4 types analysis: What, When, Who and How.
What: Key Concepts
The first What analysis shows the 40 key concepts that have been used most often in the information selected. The size and the color of the concepts indicates how often they have been used (bigger darker concepts more often used, smaller lighter concepts less often used).
The second What analysis shows how key concepts are linked together in storylines. This will help you to grasp even more quickly the major points and themes in your information.
When: Trend line
The When analysis shows the key moments on the timeline. Use the filters on the left to select to present information by update date, creation date or publication date (see notes in table above).
The Who analysis presents the sources from which you have collected the information stored in the project and folders.
News: the number of pieces of information from this source
Ranking: the visibility of the source (10 = most visible, 1 = least visible, calculated by Digimind based on information from Alexa and Google)
Score: Influence on this subject, calculated by mutliplying news X ranking
How shows the sentiments expressed in the articles and posts you have validated.
This is calculated automatically based on our algorithms. We look at keywords, idioms and emoticons to detect whether a negative or postive sentiment has been expressed. A piece of information is marked as neutral if both positive and negative sentiments have been expressed.
Notes: You may find that a majority of your pieces of information are not included in the sentiment analysis. This is because no sentiment was expressed in the article. This is the case, for example, for articles in the press, which are often written in a factual style. In addition, depending on the nature of your monitoring project, you may find that most of the information is neutral. Not all media are used to express strong sentiments. Twitter and Facebook posts often contain emotive language, whereas the press and professional titles do not. The longer an article is, the more chance that more than one sentiment is expressed. As a result the longer articles are often assigned a neutral sentiment.
