How to Get Unique Responses in your Survey

Have you ever wanted to ensure responses to a certain question were unique?  Such as requiring a unique id number?  Or maybe you want to collect information about different versions of a product from your testing group.  Our newest enterprise feature allows you to do just that!

To set up your unique responses choose the ‘Survey’ tab and click the ‘Unique Questions’ button.  You should see a dialog similar to:

Click the ‘Add Unique‘ button at the top of the page to add a new question that requires a unique response.  If a user supplies a response to that question that has already been given, they will receive a validation notification informing them that their response must be unique.

You can also do this for combinations of questions too.  Click the ‘Add Question‘ icon to add another question whose response, combined with the previous question(s) must be unique.  For example, in this case we are looking for unique combinations of Student number AND Assignment.  This allows for the same student number to be entered as long as the assignment number differs, thus limiting each student to only one response per assignment.

Alright, now you are ready to take advantage of this great improvement to further customize your surveys. If you need more information, we’re here to help. And if you aren’t already using FluidSurveys, get started today! You’ll love us — we promise!
