Quick Start

Start with sample data

To get your sea legs with Caravel, we recommend starting with a sample data set.

Below we have a number of CSVs that contain reviews of popular apps. These data sources are refreshed nightly to contain recent reviews from the past six months.

Select a sample source from a category that is similar to yours below 👇

Uploading sample data

These sample CSVs give you two columns of text. First is the review from the customer and second is the reply text which is the response from the company. You can analyze both if you'd like or just the customer review.

  1. Download one of the sample CSVs above

  2. Open the main side menu and navigate to Sources

  3. Click New Source and choose CSV Upload as the source type

  4. Give the new source a name (the name will show up in your sources filter in your feed), a description, and click Continue

  5. Click Attach a .CSV file and navigate to where you downloaded the sample CSV. Select it.

  6. In the import tab, select the properties of the CSV you want to evaluate

  7. Under Select Text select the text columns you want to analyze. If you want to analyze more than one, click the + Add column button and select the additional columns.

  8. If you'd like to be able to filter by the origin source and link back to the original review, be sure to map the proper columns under Origin.

  9. Under Metadata be sure to select User name on the first drop down to associate the reviews with the user and Date under the second drop down to be able to filter and analyze the data by dates.

  10. Click Finish to import the CSV.

The imported data will be available in Your Feed for analysis.

Creating your first text classifier
