How do I group together sub themes in Kapiche?

If you're in the process of creating a set of saved themes for your Dashboard and would like to include broad, top level themes (e.g. Products) with a series of sub themes (e.g. Products - Range) you're in the right place!

Tip: If you're looking for a more detailed guide on how to create themes by building awesome queries, head on over here instead!

Step 1: Identifying the top level theme

The Storyboard will generally help you to discover some key top level themes to capture. In this case we notice that products is the most commonly mentioned concept in our data and has a few major aspects, which makes it a good candidate for a top level theme.

Step 2: Creating the specific sub themes

The first thing you'll want to do is start creating the specific sub themes that you want to include in the top level theme. For example, we'll look at specific aspects of the products offered by a supermarket chain to illustrate. In this case we'll use the Storyboard to identify the key aspects to capture.

You could also use the Context Network by querying for products.

You'll want to go through each of the major aspects, building out and saving queries that fully capture a particular aspect. In our example we'll consider Range, Value and Quality. Shown below we've created a query to capture the Range sub theme, now we just need to hit the save button and give an appropriate name, such as Products - Range; We'll repeat this process for each sub theme.

Step 3: Creating the top level theme

Next, you'll want to create a new query to group together all of the relevant sub themes you have just built. Begin with an empty query by clicking the 'Clear query' link and then click on the search bar at the top of the page. In the dialog that appears, select the 'Saved Themes' tab to choose from the sub themes you have just created.

Select a relevant sub theme and it will populate your query accordingly.

Next, click the 'or' button and add another sub theme to the query.

Repeat this process until the query contains all relevant sub themes and hit the save button, giving your new top level theme an appropriate name - in this case we'll call it Products.

Tip: If you want to include general mentions of product within the top level theme that are not already captured by one of your sub themes you could create a new sub theme 'Products - General' that matches for 'products' and other relevant concepts.
