Another suggestion for you folks.

 

When exporting durations from audio/video coding to Excel, it just comes out as text. This means the user then gets to do battle with Excel to get it to realize that they are duration timecode.

 

It would be great if NVivo did that already with the exports, setting the cells to the format:

 

[h]:mm:ss.0

Dealing with durations in Excel is notoriously headache-inducing; if NVivo could take the first step during export, sales of ibuprofen would plummet.
