October’s New Feature Rundown
There’s always a new feature (or two, or four!) on the horizon in FluidSurveys, and today we’re showcasing a number of our latest improvements!
Hide a Page
There are times when, depending on the response you receive for a given question, you may want to hide an entire page of your survey from a respondent. You can now do this with a new Rule Action in the Advanced Branching Wizard called Hide a Page.
Have you ever been working on a survey and had your browser suddenly crash? Nothing is more annoying than losing unsaved work!
With the new Auto Recovery feature in FluidSurveys, a ‘snapshot’ of your work is taken automatically every 60 seconds while in Edit mode. If your browser or computer should crash in between saves, you will be able to recover the changes you made since the last automatic ‘snapshot’ was taken:
Collector Variable Improvements
A few months back, we introduced per-collector variables, and the response has been terrific! We’ve further improved on this concept by adding more functionality when creating collector schemas:
As the above screenshot illustrates, you can now create 4 types of collector variables: the previously-available Text type, and 3 new types: Boolean, Dropdown and CheckboxList. One of the benefits of this change is that it allows you to better control the segmentation of your collected data.
Here’s another improvement for the collectors in FluidSurveys:
For those who had many different collectors, it used to be a chore scrolling down to infinity. But with the addition of pagination, order has been restored! You can specify the number of collectors to display at once, and easily cycle through the ‘pages’ to see them all in a more organized and tidy fashion.
Text Analysis ~ Word Cloud
We’ve improved our Text Analysis feature-set and beefed up the Word Cloud in FluidSurveys:
Ain’t she perdy? The colored squares indicate the title of the category that will be populated with the associated comment. In other words, if we clicked on the box next to the first comment, it will be categorized in the ‘Software’ category. But even cooler, is our new Word Cloud:
The word cloud shows a collection of tags that represent the most popular words used by your respondents. The larger the word, the more often it occurred. When we click on any word, FluidSurveys will process all of your responses and show you the related responses. And the slider at the bottom can be used to automatically create categories from these tags. Cool? We think so!
