I have a survey now that allows people to nominate individuals for a particular cause. There can enter up to 5 names and email addresses into the survey. Two problems:
- Managing the data later is a bit messy. I’d like the name and email addresses to be on a separate row, not the same one.
- Some people nominate more than 5 people so we tell them to take the survey again.
This is what I’d like to do:
Allow nominators to enter their own name and contact information, then nominate an individual, then either quit or enter another individual. If they choose to enter another person I could simply link to the same survey but I don’t the nominator to have to re-enter their name and contact info each time.
Thanks for any suggestions!
1] I am going to assume that when you talk about separate rows, you are referring to the way that an export file appears in Excel. Each row represents the response from a single database session/response record, so SurevyGizmo will be unable to present the data from a single response session in separate rows. If you have MS Access, you should be able to build a query that yeilds a useful report from an export file.
2] Instead of forcing your nominators to play games, you could use the CUSTOM GROUP type question to capture the nominee information. This question type has an Add-As-Needed function that allows respondents to repeat the question as many times as needed – https://help.surveygizmo.com/help/custom-group#add-as-needed-setting
This does not solve your first problem, but it will make entering nominations much easier for your respondents.
