Interview filters
An interview filter is a special global filter based on the status of data collected using UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer. You can change the settings for the interview filter using the Interview Filter dialog. For example, you can apply a filter to display only completed interviews, or to display test interview results.
To open the Interview Filter dialog, select the Global Filter pane and choose Filters > Interview Filter, or click the Interview Filter button.
Fields on the Interview Filter dialog
Respondent data only
Include only data from real interviews.
Test data only
Include only test data.
All data
Include both test data and real interview data.
Filter on collection time
Check this box to restrict the data to that collected within a specific time period, and use the list boxes to select the range of dates.
Interview status
Use the option in this section to select cases on the basis of the outcome of the interview and whether the interview is marked as active (which generally means it is still in progress). You can select one or more options in this section. The options are:
Completed successfully
Active/in progress
Timed out
Stopped by script
Stopped by respondent
Interview system shut down
Signal (terminated by a signal statement in the script)
Default interview filter
By default, the interview filter includes test and real data in completed interviews.
Adding an interview filter
1 Select the table document in the Tables pane.
2 Click Filters > Interview Filter
3 In the Interview Filter dialog, select the interview filter conditions.
For example, if you want to see data only from completed surveys taken by real respondents (rather than test data), select Respondent data only and Completed successfully.
4 Click OK.
Changing an interview filter
If you are using data collected using UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer, you can change the interview filter to view only the type of data you are interested in. For example, you might want to analyze data only from surveys that have been completed, or exclude any test data that has been collected.
