How it works

Along the bottom of the video player, you’ll see Machine Learning-generated indications displaying red and green, which represent parts of the recording with moments of negative and positive sentiment respectively. 

  • Hover above a colored band to see the phrases associated with the sentiment corresponding to the band. Click the indicator to go to that exact moment in the video associated with the highlighted phrase.


  • You can also give feedback on whether that phrase matched the assigned sentiment to help us continue to improve the accuracy of sentiment analysis.


Sentiment analysis in Transcripts 

You can also scan and locate key moments within the Transcripts. When you notice feedback that is important or truly insightful, you can create a clip. If you want to preserve the sentiment associated with that piece of feedback, use "sentiment tagging" to select the appropriate icon (whether negative or positive). 


Turn off/on Sentiment Analysis

To turn on/off sentiment analysis as needed, click on the drawer menu and select or deselect the checkbox settings.


Smart tags and tags for written tasks

If your plan allows, you can use smart tags, which capture a total of 10 smart tags in the feedback. Green identifies "positive," red indicates "negative," and, for some plans, purple signifies "neutral." You can also use smart tags to analyze written responses on the Platform's Metrics tab
