SurveyGold electronic user forums are intended to be a gregarious online environment where members
can discuss issues related to SurveyGold. Use of these forums is subject to the SurveyGold User Forums Guidelines which are available for your review on our website.

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

  1. Quota logic

    Representativeness is critical in many surveys and so it is important to have quota logic. E.g. You might require 50 males and 50 females. If the 50 males quota is reached, the system would then terminate any additional males attempting the survey. Obviously these questions are placed at the beginning of the questionnaire. Most applications allow for multiple quotas to be implemented. E.g. gender, age and income.

  3. Testing Feedback and Point Vaulues

    I just attempted to build my first test with SG and had a couple of suggestions:

    1. The question point input field would not allow percentages, only whole numbers. I was trying to assign 1.3 points per question, but the program would not take them.

    2. It would be very nice if a student taking the test could see the score upon completion of the test.

    It's possible that these two suggestions above are available and I just missed them, but if they are not current features, they should be added as they would certainly enhance the program's usefulness.

  4. Default Database Location save options

    Allow system admins the ability to change and save the default database location for end users who do not have rights to install their own software. This is LONG overdue.

  5. stop software opening twice from taskbar

    Hi,

    When you click on the taskbar to bring up an open surveygold window, Surveygold can re start resulting in the application running twice.

    This has a problem then when coming to backup, as backup can not occur on closing as another instance running.

    Is it possible to check if software is open before reopening it via click to taskbar icon.

    thanks

  7. Output of word report - add spacer between open responses

    Currently, when generating a word report, all scrolling text box responses are displayed together, with no spacer between them. This means that it can be hard to differentiate where 1 comment ends and another begins.

    e.g.

    This is response 1 and from the first respondent.
    This is response 2, but if response 1 is a certain length, it is hard to see that response 2 has started.
    Adding more responses would be improved with a spacer of some form

    If this were reponse 4, a gap makes it easy to see as a seperate entry.

    Hope this is a clear…

    With regards to spacing between paragraphs in the Publish Word action, the design currently provides 10 points of spacing after a paragraph break in the Word document. This 10 points of spacing is by design to produce a visible amount of white space between the paragraphs.

    Just to clarify, how may points of spacing after a paragraph break would you like to see?

  8. randomise the web survey ID's

    Whilst I have not had a problem so far (that I know off), I would prefer the reference numbers for the surveys to be a little more random, rather than sequential.

    Currently it would not take an IT genius to run havoc with the surveys, by guessing the currently running web surveys addresses.

    invited to the first one, can mess about with all.

  9. instruction box

    Hi, I would like to enter an instruction box near the end of my survey for panelists who we would like to terminate from our survey. How do I do this so that there is no comment box underneath the statement?

  10. make a programming change (??)

    Hi Chuck! When I add a colon to the end of a survey question, as in, "Please note specifics below:" that item on my survey response list disappears (becomes invisible). I can see the item when I take the survey, but it doesn't appear when I'm creating the survey.

  11. Mobile app feature request

    I love Survey Gold... we have been using it for years. One thing that would be great, would be to have a simple dashboard tool or even a mobile app that I could access Survey Gold information from my iPhone. Often I am traveling, or out of the office and would like to find out survey response information on the fly. It would be great to have a mobile site or app that could access my account to show me top level information on my surveys. Just a suggestion!

    Jeremy, thanks for the feature suggestion. We’ve been doing some R&D on a web link (URL) that can display summary of responses per survey in real-time. Are you interested in trying it out?

  12. Community email survey campaign suggestions

    Can I make suggestions for the email campaign options. I did not find options below in help files.

    Is it possible to define where the 'call-to-action link text' appears in the body of the email, it automatically appears at the bottom, which after the address info and opt out link it is a little hard to find.

    Is it possible to copy the email survey options along with the copy of a survey, so as you copy a new survey in setup survey, then the email survey campaign is copied along with it. This option would additionally require the manage…

  13. report output feature request

    When exporting results, would it be possible to export the 'word report' cumulative totals to excel (or csv)? Alternatively, would it be possible to get the enumeration numbers (very good = 5 good = 4 average =3 etc) values in export to excel/one respondent per record, as currently you get the name of the category only (very good etc).

    I am trying to find an easier way of analysing my surveys, as currently I need to manually copy the tallied up values from the word report into an excel template.

    I notice the one response per record has the enumeration…

  14. Allow respondent to Print the filled in survey.

    I sometimes use Surveygold to create a data collection instrument. Respondents will fill out the form and it would be useful for them to be able to print a copy of the completed form as well as submitting it. I know there is a clear data to reset the form/survey but not a print function. I have in the past have had people print/capture each page,one at a time, to a pdf file.

    Jerry, thanks for the suggestion. This this feature is under consideration for a future release. It should be a fairly straightforward feature to implement as SurveyGold already provides the ability to email responses to respondents. We would just need to implement a variation of this existing functionality.

    We do have a question for you. In thinking about how to implement this capability, we are thinking of one of two designs. We would be interested in knowing what you (and others) think of these options:

    A) When the respondent submits the Submit Your Responses button, the confirmation message appears as usual and the submitted responses are displayed below them. The respondent can print the displayed responses.

    B) When the respondent submits the Submit Your Responses button, the confirmation message appears as usual and a Print Your Responses button appears. The respondent clicks the button and the submitted responses are displayed. The…

  15. Comments or other questions in same section as matrix

    It would be helpful to be able to have other questions appear on the same page as a matrix.

  16. Non-Latin characters

    Given the number of clients we have in the Pacific Rim, support for non-Latin character sets would be a welcome addition.

  17. SPSS Bug

    I’ve been noticing something odd with the way Survey Gold exports a dataset into Excel and SPSS formats. I perform both exports for my surveys.

    If I perform SPSS export ahead of Excel then everything is all right. But should I happen to perform an Excel export prior to an SPSS export for any survey (not necessarily for same dataset), then all succeeding SPSS exports are messed up. The difference is that the first row in Excel dataset, i.e. the row headers, are then included in the SPSS dataset as the first data record. This is so odd.

    For your…

  19. SPSS Minor Conversion Bug

    I am in the process of converting the responses to my survey to SPSS for analysis. I converted the resonses to SPSS without an issue, but I noticed a glitch. For questions where there is an open ended choice in the set of responses for a multipe-choice question, the responses for other (or the open ended choice) do not get coded correctly in SPSS. SPSS assigns this choice a numerical value, but because there is extra text in the response, it does not match the responses as being the same.

    Also, the comments that are inputted in open ended choices…

  20. Conditionally email notification based on response provided

    Provide the ability to notify one or more email addresses that a particular response was provided to a survey. This would be particularly useful in circumstances where an expected response could go largely unnoticed, but where an unexpected or out-of-range response could be immediately raised to the attention of one or more stakeholders via an email message.
