Changing the Names of Codes During the Open Coding Process

As I return to my posts about open coding, I thought it was appropriate to begin with a question I received from one of my viewers. This person inquired about how to change the names of codes/labels you have already coded in a timeline. He asked whether when he changed the name of the code in his code window, it would also change it in the timeline.

It will not automatically change. Since code windows are designed to be used with multiple timelines, we would not normally want that to happen. There is, however, a fast way of changing code names in both places using the find and replace feature. This brief videos shows you have to do this.

  1. Good post Tara. The Find feature is under used.

  2. Hi Tara, yes the Find and replace feature is revolutionary- not just for the timeline and code window but for in-button scripts as well.

  3. I love it! 🙂
