October News From Sonar: Karaoke transcript, survey nuggets, and other improvements


14 October 2021

Survey nuggets

Sonar now showcases quantitative data in a nugget format (see below) – also called the “survey nugget”. Whenever a participant answers a quantitative task a nugget is generated and shown in the Quotes & Observations page.

This allows for an easy overview of all participant quant answers – and you can use them in Insights.



Observations as a response type

A new task response type has been added. Use this option if you are interested in knowing how long it will take for your participants to complete a task. It will give you an indication of who is struggling with it and who completes it fast.

– Automatically created observation with time on task
– Duration added to all observations
– Easy way to compare how easy a task was (e.g. if all participants except one solved the task quickly, then it might be interesting to look into the one who didn’t solve the task as fast)



The transcript will now be highlighted and follow along with the interview.


Translation of audience criteria

The audience criteria in the Sonar Platform has been translated to more languages. You can now build screeners using these supported languages:

– English
– Danish
– German
– Swedish
– Norwegian
