Custom Scoring

It would be very helpful to have the ability to develop custom scoring for surveys in the corporate and enterprise editions. I understand that it can be developed using custom scripting (with a price), but it would be absolutely helpful if it became a point and click option. We are getting numerous requests to develop scored surveys for our internal clients and I would like to be able to meet their specific needs better.... more »

Validation error messages

I have a couple suggestion regarding the validation error messages: 1) When enabling validation on a per question basis, I've noticed that the default error message for a multiple choice question which requires only one response is "please choose at least one answer." I think this is confusing for respondents as in a case like this, we only want them to choose a single answer, not more than one. 2) I have a few questions... more »

Adding "Not Applicable" Option to Rating Scales

On the multiple choice, you have the option to select a box to show "other" as an option. It would also be useful for the rating scales to display an option for using "not applicable." This would be easier than adding the text manually and then having to adjust the report settings to filter out the "not applicable" so it doesn't appear as a higher rating than "strongly agree."

No Red Star Option

In many programs I have used, the red star associated with required questions is repeatedly criticized by pre-testers as an unattractive way to represent such questions. Personally, I think it is appropriate in some cases, such as collecting form information like addresses and zipcodes. But for more involved questionnaires others have told me that it is a distraction. It would be useful to have a global option where... more »

Changing Multiple Settings on a Question

When editing more than one setting on a question, you currently have to change the settings on one tab, save, then re-open the edit screen and make the change on the next tab, save again. There should either be a save and continue button or have the application automatically save your changes if you move to a different tab. See vid where I change the question name, then change the font. Only the font change is saved.... more »

Width of questionnaire as Viewed by Respondent

Need more flexibility in adjusting survey width as viewed by respondent. I have tried expanding width in Display Options and adjusting percent of text and scale for matrix questions. This changes the view in Edit Questions mode, but in Preview mode (which respondents will see), no change has happened. In particular, I cam trying to increase the width for text on matrix questions, so that text does not scroll to 3... more »

Using clickable images to record answers

I am getting a lot of requests to move away from clicking check boxes for answering questions. Most requests are to change the checkbox to an image - for example: We're conducting a global tracking survey and the client wants to replace the company names with a list of company logo's, so you just click the logo and the answer is stored in the database as normal. I know we can already replace text with images, but they... more »

Date format choices

Can we have different format date fields please!

 

DD/MM/YYYY at the very least. We're not all American users and it causes a lot of work at the back end, re-formatting the dates in Excel with its own perculiarities. I haven't been able to find a way to change this in QPro and it is a fundemental requirement of any decent software.

 

If it does exist, please point me in the right direction.

 

Thanks.
