What you'll see on the Themes tab

Reframer is currently in beta, which means this content is too! We'll do our best to update it promptly as improvements are made. Thanks for your patience and feedback as we work on making Reframer awesome. Notice something that needs work? Please email support@optimalworkshop.com.

The Themes tab has three separate parts that work together and update automatically as your project progresses. You and your team will do all post-session tagging and thematic analysis on this page.

Theme Builder

Displays all the sessions you have run as part of the project in chronological order, and the number of observations in each session. Also displays every tag created in the project so far (project, session, and observation tags), from the most frequently occurring tags to the least. You'll use the Theme Builder to explore relationships between tagged observations, and to create your project's themes. 

Read more about how to use the Theme Builder to explore and create themes.


By default, this column displays a list of every observation captured in the project so far.

When you select a session or tag from the Theme Builder on the left, the default list will be replaced by a customized list of observations based on your selection of sessions and tags on the left. As soon as you start selecting tags, you'll be given the option to create a theme by naming it.

Read more about using the Observations column to add tags after a session.

Saved Themes

This list displays the themes you and your team have created in the project so far. When you click on a saved theme, it will bring up the observations associated with that theme in the right hand column. The top five saved themes — those with the most observations — will be displayed on the Results Overview.

See how your themes are displayed on the Results Overview page.
