New features


Luminoso is excited to announce Collaborative Concept Lists, the most recent set of usability improvements to Daylight. This change helps improve how users save and organize concepts in Daylight. It combines two changes –  Active Concepts and Shared Concept Lists active concepts and shared concept lists – that work together to improve concept management and exploration. 


  • You could save only one set of concepts per project, for all users.

  • When one user changed the saved concept list, it updated for all users.

  • You could use saved concepts to populate visualizations.

  • You interacted with Saved Concepts saved concepts in the Select concepts tab

After this release:

  • Your existing saved concepts (if any) are converted to a Shared Concept List shared concept list named with the date that the list was converted on. For most users, this date will be 2020-11-07, the date of the cloud release. 

  • Anywhere that Daylight previously used Saved Concepts“saved concepts,you’ll now see Active Concepts“active concepts.'

  • Active Concepts concepts are applied for a single user.

  • You can save your Active Concepts active concepts as a Shared Concept List shared concept list to come back to or share with other users.

  • Any user can save as many Shared Concept Lists shared concept lists as they want. 

  • Shared Concept Lists concept lists are accessible by any user who has access to the project.

  • You interact with Active Concepts active concepts in the Active concepts tab, in the same location as the Select concepts tab.

Active concepts and shared concept lists

Using Active Concepts active concepts is easy , and works is very similarly similar to how you used Saved Concepts saved concepts before. Add any concept to your Active Concept List active concept list by selecting a concept from a feature or the search bar, or by opening and editing an existing shared concept list. Then, save and share any group of active concepts you’d like to keep. 

Active concepts: 

  • Allow users to experiment with concepts in a private scratch space. 

  • Encourage exploration of Daylight without fear of losing concepts or making permanent changes.

  • Let view-only users load shared concept lists and manipulate their own active concepts.

  • Are persistent after logging out and returning to a project.  

Shared concept lists:

  • Provide better organization of concepts with Shared Concept lists. 

  • Allow exploration of a single project using different lenses, such as service or emotion.

  • Enhance in-project collaboration for projects with multiple users. 

  • Separate interesting dataset subsets without needing to create multiple Daylight projects. 

Concepts remain in your Active Concepts List active concepts list until you delete them or load a different shared concept list. You can add the same concept to multiple shared concept lists. For instance, if “smell” was relevant to two users’ lists, they could both add that concept to their lists. Concepts with the same name that are in multiple lists don’t update universally.  

Changes that you make in your Active Concept Space active concept space are not visible to other users until you save them to a shared concept list. When you select Active concepts in the Configure visualization tab, your current Active Concepts appear in active concepts populate the information in Daylight’s analysis features, as Saved Concepts like saved concepts did previously.

Active Concepts concepts are persistent across features. Additionally, whatever Active Concepts active concepts you had loaded when you log out of Daylight are now present when you log back in. 


Once you have one or more Shared Concept Lists shared concept lists set up, you can load copy one into your Active Concepts List active concepts list to use its concepts in visualizations or to make edits to its contents.

You can create as many Shared Concept Lists shared concept lists as you need in a project. Naming Shared Concept Lists shared concept lists is flexible to meet your analysis and team needs.
