Surveys

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

        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.

        Thanks

        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?

        We would definitely like to see this feature. We currently do paper surveys sporadically.
        One important type is to survey trip participants after the event, so the ability to survey specific event (s) attendees would be important. We also could benefit from a broader survey to the general membership. then of course provide the ability to tally the results for analysis. We would also want to capture comments in a note field on each survey, which of course can't be quantified, but provided as additional information.
