Useful Information

  • Only one notes window can be open at a time.
  • In the case where a tap causes a sequence of actions, which results in iCODA attempting to open multiple Notes Windows, only the first will open.
  • Event notes are incorporated with Event Buttons. They are not separate items. Exporting the timeline with the button and note contained in that timeline, keeps the data together. If that timeline is attached to a video the notes can be displayed if required.
  • Events can be edited and deleted during and post a coding session.


The Coding History window enables you to view recent history of Events coded. The Events start and end time, tags and notes are displayed.

To View Recent History

1. Click on the Coding History Button at the Bottom of the coding screen.
