We got an email the other day from the team at SurveyWidgets letting us know that they have released some flash objects for your data collection surveys. Here is an example of what they offer , but if you want to see the full range click here
A while back Kevin mentioned that we might have issues when trying to upload our surveys into our Interviewer Server. As promised we checked what we had done to see if anything strange would happen that we did not expect. This article describes the process that we used to get our Lesson 3 activated on a server.
In this article we will take what we have learnt so far and explore one concept in making our flash object generic. The idea here will be to pass something into the flash object that set’s it up and then the flash object returns the selected result. This object could then be used in multiple positions throughout our survey to collect data.
In the previous two articles we saw how to pass things from a flash object to data collection server and back again. In this article we will make a categorical style question in flash and link it to our data collection survey. We will start with passing the data back to a text box and then progress onto linking it to a categorical question.
As promised here are our articles on integrating flash and data collection server. We started learning FLASH about 3 days ago and we now believe that we have found enough information to get something working. To get going with this , we downloaded the latest version of “Adobe Flash CS4 Professional” which gave us a 30 day trial. This has been more than enough time for us to get things working.
We have known for some time that web survey respondents find complex grid questions unfriendly and that boring interviews do not reach the required response rates.
