    How is your site suited for survey purposes?

    Asked by Dawn Weeks  on February 20, 2014 at 11:23 AM

    Hi - I am finishing my MBA and conducting a survey where I will need to collect the data for analysis purposes. 

    Does your site allow full export of the data that is collected? 

    Is your site suited for survey questions of an "academic" nature?  Collecting demographic info and conducting a survey instrument collecting data for analysis and testing purposes?

    Can I redirect respondents to a web site outside of jotform? 

    Can I generate a unique id or count that would uniquely identify them for their own purposes, but would preserve their anonymity?

    Finally, do you offer skip logic that would exit the respondent if they declined the informed consent page?

    Thanks much!  I was intending to use surveymonkey, but they are falling short of my needs and expectations.

    Hi Dawn,

    Thanks for the interest. I would be happy to give you the answers to your questions, below:

     

    Does your site allow full export of the data that is collected? 

    Yes, we do. You can export form submissions in various methods. Check it here: Jotform Reports or by using our Data Management Apps: http://apps.jotform.com/category/data_management

     

    Is your site suited for survey questions of an "academic" nature?  Collecting demographic info and conducting a survey instrument collecting data for analysis and testing purposes?

    I can say, yes. We have the most of the tools the a web form can have. In addition, you can check our newly added Widgets section: http://widgets.jotform.com/. We do have a few widgets that you can use for creating your survey form.

     

    Can I redirect respondents to a web site outside of jotform? 

    Is this after the respondents submit the form? If yes, then it's possible with Jotform. Check this guide: Custom Thank You URL

     

    Can I generate a unique id or count that would uniquely identify them for their own purposes, but would preserve their anonymity?

    Yes, you can. Check this guide: Add Custom Unique IDs to your Form Submissions

     

    Finally, do you offer skip logic that would exit the respondent if they declined the informed consent page?

    We do have our Conditional Logic Function. You can show/hide, skip, send email, change the thank you URL and message based on a field selection. Check this guide: Conditional Logic on Forms

     

    If you have additional questions, please let us know.

    Thanks
