The creation of memos is a core activity in grounded theory and other qualitative data analysis approaches. They can be useful within the Dedoose environment from a range of perspectives including documenting the analytical journey, communicating with team members, noting issues in the application of codes, and any other facet of a project's activities. The memo system in Dedoose is flexible, memos 'live' in a gruop-based organization structure, and memos can be easily exported or converted to document media within a project for excerpting and tagging.
