Create a matrix view

The matrix view allows you to visually compare scoring combinations, such as comparing the value an idea brings against the effort it takes to execute it. It is helpful when you need to gain clarity to prioritize ideas.

Before you begin


  • You currently can't add new ideas to your project from a matrix view.

  • Bubbles representing custom formulas or multi-select fields can't be dragged and dropped.


  1. In JPD, select a project and under Views > + Create a view > Create a new matrix.

  2. Before you see the actual matrix, you have to select the X-Axis and the Y-Axis values. Select an axis and a field. The positioning of the idea bubbles changes as you change the axis fields.

  3. Search ideas within the matrix view using the Find an idea in this view field.


  • Drag and drop a bubble to change its value.

  • Hovering over an idea will highlight the associated bubble.

  • Hover over a bubble to see the idea summary and to highlight the associated idea.

  • Drag and drop a bubble to change its value.

Resize the bubbles

Visualize the importance of an idea bubble by applying a size. The larger the size, the larger the value. You can change the size of bubbles by configuring the idea fields so that the bubble size varies every time the field data does.

  1. In the matrix view, go to Size and select a field for the sizing.

Once you've made the selection, the bubble containing that field will change in size.
