Highlights are added to content inside notes. Unlike other products, with Dovetail, you could highlight a single word, sentence, or paragraph with a tag or insight. This means you can add more granular tags or insights to content.
Tags are used to keep track of patterns that emerge across notes.
For example, let’s say you were analyzing reviews for an iPhone app. Each note in Dovetail is one review. Here’s the content of one of the reviews:
“I love the app, however it’s becoming slower and slower. It seems to take a long time to open up initially. It’s missing a key feature – search. I need this to find what I need.”
Given this example, perhaps you’d tag “…however it’s becoming slower and slower. It seems to take a long time to open up initially” with performance and “It’s missing a key feature – search. I need this to find what I need” with feature request.
Note: New tags can either be created in-context as you highlight a note, or as a blank tag inside a project. The instructions below are for the former method.
