    Combined Summary Reports:

     I played with this a little bit, and one oddity rather than truly comparing similar surveys, it treats them as one giant survey.  This would be more useful if there was a clean way to compare the results of the different surveys.  I can sort of work around this by creating segments by date…but this is a little bit clunky.  At the very least one of the segmentation options should be by survey, so that you can compare the results of each survey.

    However, segmentation isn’t ideal for this, because it then pulls each segment completely apart.  For example if you are comparing a 2015 survey to a 2016 survey on one question, the resulting tables will show : 2015: Option 1, Option 2  then 2016: Option 1, Option 2.

    It would be useful if I could organize it as: 2015: Option one, 2016: Option 1 ; 2015: Option 2, 2016: Option 2.


    In this way you are directly comparing how many people chose option 1 for survey 1, versus how many people chose option 1 for survey 2.  You could then see change over time at a glance.

      • Hi Loren,

        Thank you for your note and feedback. The current functionality is intended to ‘combine’ the data from multiple identical surveys into an aggregate output. Having said that, we certainly understand the need to be able to compare the datasets after combining them.

        This comparison functionality is something that we hope to explore in the future and will certainly provide updates regarding any developments towards that.

        Thank you again for your feedback!

        Best regards,

        The SurveyGizmo Team
