Display a summary before submitting answers

I think it's a basic natural feature not to let the user submit their answers before they approve a summary of all their answers. That is, without a manual solution .

I've had surveyors who detected wrong answers upon clicking their post-submit "print answers" link. It was frustrating for everyone involved to witness mistakes without the ability to correct them.

Such a feature would create more reliable and more user friendly surveys.

Hope you'll consider this request!

Sounds like a useful improvement to have such an overview as a last page. Please add it to our idea tracker and post the link here.

Thanks!

Where is there an idea tracker? The normal tracker seems to only have categories for reporting bugs.

Done.

But how was I supposed to find that link by myself? I don't see it anywhere except in your post.

Main navigation -> Support -> Feature requests.

And yes, it is not very obvious.

In the beginning of this thread a manual solution on how to get a summary is linked to. This link is broken. Is it possible to make a summary of the respondents answer that is presented before he/she submits the answers?

You can show a question of type "boilerplate" at the very last page. Just list all questions in a table (column 1) and use the INSERTANS placeholder for each question at column 2.

Another option is to add a custom function to the expression parser.

I've had several surveys with this need, but they never wanted to see all the questions, so I created a function with three arguments:

showTableOfAnswers(whichQuestions,whichColumns,columnTitles)
  • whichQuestions - a pipe-delimited string of question names, so you can pick just the ones you want to show.
  • whichColumns - a pipe-delimited string of question attributes (e.g. questionNumber, questionTitle, questionText, answerMessage, answerCode
  • columnTitles - a pipe-delimited string of the titles to use for each column header - to make it more readable and support internationalization

I'm going to need this anyway for another project, so plan to create it in the next month or so.

The main thing I was missing, however,was an easy way to change any of the answers other than going all the way back to wherever the question was asked. On the other hand, at least it was possible to change answers, and the need was rare enough that the lack of an elegant solution was not a show stopper.
