I am using Nvivo11 Plus and I have longitudinal data. What's the best way to organize the data so I can compare data for participants at Time1 with Time 2?

There are a few approaches you can take to organising your data. Possibly the simplest approach would be to rename your sources in NVivo so that the time/date is a part of the source name, or use a different source folder for each time.
You could also use sets to organise your sources, so you could have a different set for each time. Sets are different to folders in NVivo as a set just contains a “shortcut” to your project item. This allows you to have one project item included in multiple sets. You can find some information about this at the following link http://help-nv11.qsr...manage_sets.htm
Another approach would be to add the time as an attribute to a source or case. This would let you run queries using this attribute. You can find details on classifying sources at the following link http://help-nv11.qsr...ify_sources.htm
