Hello! I hope all is well! Quick question. How do I become a survey gizmo expert?

    There is no official standard for “expert” status.  SurveyGizmo is a multi-faceted tool  that is used by many organizations for many different purposes.  The fact that SurveyGizmo just realigned their product offering into three different licensing tracks speaks to the wide range of usage.  I don’t believe that becoming an expert is a realistic goal.

    If you want to take a shot at being a”power user”, I  think that the first steps would be to achieve proficiency with HTML and CSS coding.  And then learn how to code in php and JavaScript.  Learn something about how SQL and online databases work.  This will help you understand the behind-the-scene basics of how SurveyGizmo works and let you customize the tool to suit your purposes.

    Then familiarize yourself with the online documentation, attend a few of the weekly webinars, and go to one of the in-person training sessions and talk to other users.  Read the posting in the Community forum to learn how other people are using the tool.  Build a few surveys just to play with. Have some fun.

    I would advise you not worry about becoming an expert.  The tech world moves too fast for that to be a realistic goal.  Just know the basics and maintain an awareness of what is possible. When it comes time to create a miracle you just print out that one article from the online documentation and get to work.
