9️⃣ Matrix: Make Evident Decisions Between Multiple Options Fast

The ITONICS Matrix enables users to analyze, track, monitor, and re-evaluate a distinct set of content for decisions.

On the matrix visualization, each bubble represents one or more pieces of content. You find the matrix visualization in the left main menu [1]. 

If several elements fall into the same categorization, they are grouped together and the number of elements is displayed. Clicking on such a grouping will show you all the Elements within. When you click on a single bubble or title, the content stack view open to the right side from which you can consume further information.

The bubbles’ positions and visual appearance are based on how you and your colleagues categorize and rate them. Selecting different properties for the axes [2] will automatically re-arrange the elements' positions. To change an axis property, click on the property descriptor of an axis and exchange the property according to your needs.

In addition to the two axes, you can configure the matrix visualization to visually represent other relevant information using the Color and Halo dimensions. The configuration of color and halo is done from the configuration wheel [3]. Note that the legend is movable and sits by default in the bottom left. You can decide whether it should be shown or not by clicking the X button [8]. Also, note that groups of Elements will be ringed by a colorful donut chart that is representative of the elements within. 

Furthermore, you can decide whether labels of the content bubbles should be displayed or not [4]. You can also adjust the size of each quadrant from the line mover icon [5]. By dragging and dropping the lines after activation, you can adjust the quadrants. In this step, you can also provide titles for each quadrant. Click on the pencil icon in a zone to rename it.
Confirm with the Submit button. Whether you display the titles of each quadrant (and the quadrants itself) or not can be controlled from the matrix eye icon [6].

The properties available for the axes, color, and halo are defined from the element configuration and your definition of dropdowns and rating criteria.

You can further detail the view of the matrix and the content displayed on a matrix by using the filter options above the matrix view [9].

To save and share a matrix view, find the save button at the top right of the matrix [7]. Provide a title and indicate whether you want to keep it private or share the view with everyone in your workspace. You will find all saved matrix views in the main menu to the left under "Matrix" [1].

You will also find it via the bookmark icon above the configuration wheel. From here, you also have the option to update the name of any saved matrix view.
