Enable save and return: Select this option if you want respondents to be able to save the survey and come back to finish it later.
Enable back button: Select this option if you want respondents to be able to go back and forward in the survey.
Maximum number of responses: Survey will be shown as closed if it is accessed after the maximum numbers of responses is reached. This feature is useful if only a limited number of responses is needed, and server/database resources are limited. Set this to 0 for unlimited responses.
Maximum upload size: Set the max allowed size per image, for images uploaded by respondents. This is applicable only if the upload feature is enabled in the question screen. See open-ended question.
Save responses on:
Completion. Saves the survey response when the respondent has finished the survey. This will often cause less strain on the database server, because the system does not have to make a new database connection between every survey page. The disadvantage is that the partially answered survey will not be saved if a server crash occurs.
Every page. Ensures that the answers are stored as the respondent goes through the survey. This will cause more traffic to the database server, but will keep partial responses after a server crash.
Server side: The validity of response values will be checked/verified on the server side. If the values are invalid in some way, the respondent will see the same survey page again, with warning messages included above the question text.
Example with server side validation:
Example with client side validation:
If you choose no, select the method to prevent multiple responses.
No: The respondent is restricted to respond only once. If this option is selected, also specify how you want Opinio to enforce this restriction:
You must also specify how to perform the restriction:
URL only: The default language switch type. The language to be used in the survey is determined by a parameter in the survey url only. If no language parameter exists the default language will be used.
In survey top: The language to be used in the survey can be changed by the respondent in the top of each survey page.
Redirect to address: Set a web address to go to after last survey page or after the thank-you note. For example, you can type in the address of a report, so that the respondent can view the results of the survey live. Respondents must be given access to the report first. Note that you have to write the full address. E.g. "http://www.objectplanet.com".
When you start typing the address, the section is expanded. This allows you to to include built-in Opinio parameters or incoming parameters in the survey URL (that start with 'opdata_'). You are also given a choice to notify the URL address instead of redirecting to it. In this case a "Thank you" screen is displayed as normal, while Opinio connects to the URL in the background. Notifications can be useful if you want to send some data from Opinio to another system (for example a CRM system) as soon as your survey is completed by a respondent.
You can choose a custom name instead of any of the built-in parameter names to use in the URL. As for the 'opdata_' parameters, you first specify which of the parameters you would like to add and then select a custom name for it. You can have as many 'opdata_' parameters as you need (rows are added automatically). If there is no such 'opdata_' parameter in Opinio at the moment of redirect, an empty value is used.
It is easy to change the number 54 at the end link to access another survey. If your survey is confidential, you might want to set the custom id, to “mySurveyId”, for example.
Save URL parameters: It is possible to specify URL parameters to save with each respondent. By setting this survey attribute it is possible to turn the automatic saving of these URL parameters on/off. This is necessary, because it should be possible to let a plugin handle this data (if it is not going to be saved automatically). The default value is to save the parameters ("Yes")
The custom parameters must be specified in the survey URL like this:
In this example, the parameter "s" is the survey id. The "name1" part of "opdata_name1" is customizable. I.e. each custom parameter must start with "opdata_". Any number of custom parameters is available â€“ the only limitation is the length of URLs, usually 2083 characters (Internet Explorer). The custom data will be available in the "single response" report, and raw data export. This, of course, only applies if the data is actually stored in the database.
