Once you’re logged into your Marvin account from the home page, click on the “new Project” button on the top right-side of the page, give it a good name and choose the language your interviews will be in. We support over 35 different languages, as well as accents within a specific language.
You’ll be taken back to your home screen and you’ll see the project folder you created in the center of the page. Click on it and you can start sharing projects with your colleagues by adding them to a project folder. You’ll also be able to import existing files or recordings for annotation and analysis. If you don’t have any to import yet, no worries, let’s build the project framework.
This questions tab is a great place to store your interview guide, so your whole team can see the research questions to ask during the interviews. You can create an interview guide from scratch by adding text right here like you would in any text document, or copy and paste from tools you already use. You can easily add or edit the document at any time, and there is no need to save — the system automatically keeps your content and pulls the questions up when you’re using Live Notes in an interview. Next, let’s set up your research labels for tagging and analyzing purposes. Again, you can import from other sources, or you can add directly to Marvin. Give your first one a clear name and description. Then you can add directly from this list view. As you build out the labels systematically, you can easily create parent labels and drag and drop to the appropriate location.
Now you’re ready for your first interview!
