To interact with the 3D chart, you can:

  • Use your mouse scroller to zoom in and out
  • Click and drag your mouse across the screen to rotate your 3D charts for different perspectives
  • Click on an idea to pull it into focus and preview reasonings and numerical values you have assigned to it.

Focus on one factor

You can view strengths, weaknesses, opportunities or threats separately.

Use the drop down box in the top left corner to select one factor.

You can interact with the 3D chart of one factor in the same way you can interact with full 3D SWOT analysis charts.


When you are ready to share your SWOT analysis, you have two choices:

  • Invite team members to collaborate
  • Export your analysis to MS Office Word

If you choose to export your SWOT analysis, first click on the ‘Export’ tab.
