User Research Tagging and Coding – Aurelius Product Updates July 2019

Tagging and coding user research notes and data just got easier with our latest updates in Aurelius!

We’ve been very busy learning from our customers on how to help them best tag, analyze and share their user research data and findings. In continuing with our product updates and sharing what we learn from customers and what we did about it, keep reading to hear all about our latest product updates.

[Aurelius Product Updates – July 2019]

Tag and Code User Research Notes and Data In Context

We launched the ability to view notes in a list and toggle them between chronological order or most recently added. Check it out:

What We Learned:

One of the most frequent requests we had gotten over the last several months was to have the ability to see your project notes and data in a more chronological order, similar to a traditional document.

This is especially important if you’re reviewing a user interview transcript and trying to keep everything in the order which the conversation happened. Additionally, we learned that many user researchers prefer to view their research notes and observations in the context of other things that may have been said in the conversation or interview.

What We Did About It:

Notes List View

Again, some of the best features and enhancements are super simple. In this case that holds true. We addressed one of our popular customer requests with the ability to toggle between our popular note card view and a list view.


Toggle By Most Recently Added Or Chronological 

Another no brainer for us was to add more flexibility in how researchers could view their notes by allowing them to switch between listing their notes by the ones most recently added or in chronological order. This allows them to keep the context of a conversation or interview as well as quickly toggle between notes to see the most recently added ones if they have multiple people taking notes in one project.


Visual Design Matters (and is nicer to use)

Aurelius had not had a proper update to the visual styling for quite some time. This happens when you get caught up in building new features and enhancements with limited time and resources, especially a 100% self-funded/bootstrapped startup like us!

What We Learned:

Customers and new trials in Aurelius were very much judging the effectiveness of our user research platform by how well it was visually designed. Aesthetics and visual design have an impact on how people percieve a company and quality of their product (I know… duh right?)

What We Did About It:

We restyled the entire app! Done.

Security In a User Research Tool Is a Sliding Scale

Aurelius is, and always has been very secure. That said however, with more and more companies using Aurelius comes an broader set of security needs from companies of various sizes.

There’s no sense doing a “what we learned” and “what we did about it” section here. The long and short of it is that some customers require the ability for SSO (single sign on) in order to use Aurelius, so we built that capability!

With that came the launch of our brand new Premium plan , which includes SSO and priority support for those customers who need it.

A User Research Repository For You

We are constantly learning how to help user researchers better tag, organize, search and share what they learn from their customers. If you’re looking for a platform to help you speed up research analysis and drive impact with your UX research we invite you to check out Aurelius.
