Highlighting and tagging text on UserBit is one of the most useful features on the platform. It provides our UX designers with a scalable way of synthesizing and categorizing their UX research notes, interview responses or even survey responses.

What is equally important to understand the research data, is the ability to easily review these highlights. This was a bit cumbersome on UserBit as you had to go through tags, to be able to see what content has been tagged with them.

Fear not, fellow UXers, our latest release makes reviewing highlights a breeze! Let's do a quick rundown of the new Highlights tab.

The first filter on the highlights page allows you to filter your highlighted content by tags. You can add multiple tags and review their content together.

You can also filter the highlights by research modules. There are 3 modules to select from - interviews, notes & media, or surveys. You can select one or more of these to see highlights specifically within those.

Filter by Β highlight creator

Filter by highlight creator
View which teammate tagged what

Another powerful feature here is the ability to filter by creators. If you're working with team members (if not, why not? Get them on UserBit! πŸ˜€) it is often very useful to be able to just see your tags, vs. a teammates' tags. This filter will help you achieve just that.

Move highlighted content

Move highlights between tags on UserBit
Organize your highlight by moving them between tags

Just like from within a tag profile, you have the ability here to move highlights between tags as well. This means that you can split a tag's content into two or merge two tags into one, etc.

In addition, you can also perform individual actions on the highlights directly from this section like deleting them or saving a highlight as an insight.

We hope that this update makes the task of synthesizing your research data quicker and more efficient. Try it out today!
