Turning on or off sentiment analysis for comments

Product Guides for EchoSpan 360-Degree Feedback

EchoSpan has integrated with Microsoft Cognitive Services to provide Sentiment Analysis* of comments in PDF reports. Sentiment scores are calculated once for each Target’s responses when a report is generated. Sentiment Analysis “reads” comments in reports and presents the reader with a measure of positivity for each one presented as a small graph above the comment text. Sentiment scores are useful in quickly identifying comments that may be highly positive or negative.

*This feature will be released initially as a publicly available beta to Professional and Enterprise Edition customers while final testing is performed.
