Mentions

Mentions are the results of your online listening search projects. The system finds each usage of your keyword and collects it for you in your SentiOne panel with additional information. To get relevant mentions (e.g. from chosen source or time period) you can sort your results in the Mentions module. It allows you to browse and filter results collected within a specific project.

  1. Start working in Mentions module by choosing one of your projects. Click the panel to see the list of your projects.
  2. Results sorting – allows to filter mentions by publication date, indexation in the SentiOne system, or the reach of statements. You can sort mentions increasingly or decreasingly within each of these categories.
  3. Filters – allow to search mentions according to defined parameters:
  4. Additional options – ticking this option determines if ignored statements are displayed in the list of mentions.
