I have a data based on some ratings and reviews for which I have all the charts I need.
I'm trying to create a list of common search terms on the review text (instead of everyone having to type in search terms), which people can click on to see all the charts update.
Eg. Assume my data set is a bunch of reviews for a hotel, rating and some other dimensions for which I have created charts.
I want a list box box of industry search terms like clean, service, staff, view, pool, kids, etc... so that my clients can just click on these terms and discover patterns.
Any suggestions on how to do this?
You can create a mapping table with list of pre-defined items which will be connected with your data via one of the fields (like 'Category') and have a list box with these items available for selecetion.
Thanks for your response with the suggestion for Bookmarks. I tried doing it and running into trouble.
With all selections cleared, I went to the Review field box and typed "clean". Then I went to Bookmarks > Add Bookmarks and named it 'clean'.
Then, to test, I cleared my selections and tried to select the bookmark again hoping that it will apply the search filter correctly, but it failed and did nothing.
Am I doing something wrong?
Valdmir, Thanks for your suggestion. Never tried mapping before..will read about it and give it a shot.
So "Review" is a field in your dataset and "Clean" is a valid value? Have you tried clicking the value to select it rather than typing it in? Then create the bookmark...
Vijay, Make your selections and then create the bookmark. Once its created then clear selections and select the bookmark. This will apply te selection you made again when you created the bookmark. Thanks, Rajesh Vaswani
Here is the basic example:
mapping LOAD *
ApplyMap('WorkModeMap', Mode) as Category
DROP Table DataLoad;
Use Category field from the last table for selections.
Review is a field that may contain a scentence like "The room was awesome and clean". Another review might say, "The room was clena and the staff were friendly". The values are basically scentences.
When I search for 'clean', it will filter the dataset for reviews that contain the word clean.
For some reason at this point if I set the bookmark, it does not stick. Wondering if bookmark will only store selection and not search values?..will keep trying.
