Type in your suggestion - new feature or improvement idea



Admin will have the ability to create a survey

Surveys are comprised of multiple questions, which are often inter-related or at least all concern a similar subject. Members or guests would have to ability to participate in a survey and answer the questions. Admins would be able to view the survey in the administrative side of the site and be able to see the ongoing results for each survey. Additionally, admins may only invite a certain group of people to participate in a survey.

There are a number of ways that this can be done, and a number of features that can be added (should people be able to partially complete the survey and finish it later, for example). As we start to analyze there, are there any features that you would like to see in surveys.

(Please note that there is a separate thread for Polls, which are single questions: http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932-wishlist/suggestions/8825896-polls-2493 )

    We'd like to survey our members after our events and it would be ideal to house the content on our website with everything else. A Likert scale with comment boxes would be sufficient for our needs.

    **** why don't you collect this information as part of the member profile? That way it can always be updated on renewals too or left as is.

    I would love to have a way to setup a survey within WildApricot, and then have the answers (at least some of them) added to the member's database record.

    For example, we have all the basic questions configured in our initial membership application, but we would also like to offer an optional after-approval survey for each new member (i.e. what is your favorite color?), which would allow us to collect additional information about the member, and save that information to their member record so that it could be used later (i.e. a targeted email notice, going out only to members who's favorite color is blue).

    We collect event feedback from delegates after every event and the survey facility would complement the rest of the Event side of Wild Apricot. It seems such a retrograde step after advertising and managing an event online to say to 100 attendees ' now flll in a bit of paper' and then have administrator time collating and analysing the data.

    The option to receive a certificate of attendance for Continuing Professional Development purpose after completing the survey would be the icing on the cake. Thanks for considering.

    Would like to see a survey feature to send out after an event to attendees. Once the survey is completed, they then receive a certificate of attendance. This would be helpful for those that attend our workshops for continuing education hours.

    It would be very useful to integrate our Wild Apricot database with forms such as Wufoo provide to survey our members, seek feedback and run competitions.

    I agree with everything the others have said. A survey function would be fantastic -- ideally, Wild Apricot is our go-to for all our communication needs, and I'd prefer to stop paying outside services like Constant Contact or Survey Monkey. Something integrated would be a huge improvement to the service. Thank you for considering it!

    We've just started using online event check-in and it would seem that the post-event survey would be a natural to complement this. The less paper, the better!

  • Christine Kincaid Dewey commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Please! Please! Please! We didn't realize that surveys were not possible before we signed up with Wild Apricot. This is the biggest issue we have.

  • Lori Boyer commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    We would use this after each event to survey attendees. Would love to see this as a feature.

  • Tina McCormick commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    It would be beneficial to have a survey function that would allow utilization of membership database. When do you think we will have that capability? We have been a customer for a long period of time and recently discovered the need.

    I am currently using Constant Contact as a survey and CE Certificate process for after my meetings. I have to issue CE Certificates to attendees, and they have to complete an evaluation first. I set up a survey as the evaluation, then add a link to a pdf file on the finish page after the user hits submit, this pdf is the CE Certificate for that meeting. Great way for us to compile the information easily and make sure the eval is done before the CE certificate is given. I would prefer to manage this through my Wild Apricot site. Constant contact charges $15 /month for up to 5000 surveys. The survey "Thank you" page would have to allow for a link to the pdf file for this to work.

    The survey system could be beneficial for other things, also, like elections, member benefit surveys, etc.

    The Wild Apricot online documentation suggests using Polldaddy for polls and surveys. When I checked it out I found one aspect of the service that was a deal killer for me. In their terms of service they state that in the free version they would post all of your polls and surveys for public consumption. Here is the text of that term:

    13.6. All polls created in the "Polldaddy Free" accounts will be submitted to our directory found at "http://polldaddy.com/community ". Only "Pro" accounts have the option to set their polls as private.

    I found this completely unacceptable, so I searched for an alternative and decided to try Zoomerang, with which I was already familiar. I didn't know that they offered a free, limited account and I was very pleased with the terms and the quality of the offering. Perhaps it will work as well for other Wild Apricot users until and unless it becomes a part of the feature set of the service.

    This would be very useful to us. Is there any sign it will be implemented in 2010?
