Title Survey data, paradata, identifiers, and system variables
Vsebina

 

By default, the 'DATA' - 'Browse' tab only displays survey data (respondents' answers) for valid units. 

 

Additional data

By selecting the 'All units' option, or if certain units are attached to an email invitation, the following categories will be displayed:

 

  • validity: shows if an individual unit is valid; units with the status 5 and 6 (i.e. fully or partially completed questionnaires) are also considered to be valid;
  • empty: shows if the questionnaire is empty (the respondent merely clicked through the survey without answering);
  • invitation: if an invitation was sent to the individual unit;
  • status: the final status of the units.

 

In special cases you can also enable display of the following properties, by clicking on the relevant checkbox in the 'Data table settings':

 

  • date of survey completion;
  • record number of the entry, which is generated automatically. 

 

If automatic entries were also in use, a column 'Test' will automatically appear, which tells you which of the individual units were test units. 

 

Paradata

You can enable the display of paradata by clicking on the relevant checkbox in the 'Data table settings', which displays the following information:

 

  • record number of the entry (rec. num.);
  • date of survey completion;
  • date of any corrections made to the survey;
  • date of entry of each page of the survey;
  • which browser the respondent used;
  • operational system used by respondents's device
  • which device was used by the respondent (computer, mobile phone, tablet)
  • if the respondent had enabled JavaScript in the browser;
  • the referral page that brought the respondent to the survey page;
  • which language the respondent used to complete the survey (in case of multi-lingual surveys).

 

All of the aforementioned elements are displayed in the right-hand columns, apart from the record number. If these elements are not visible, you must choose 'All' in the 'Questions' dropdown menu. 

 

Identifiers

Identifiers are data that are imported and edited in the 'PUBLISH' - 'Email' tab, and usually include name, surname, email, address, etc. In order to protect the privacy of such data, it must be displayed in surveys separately from survey data. A joint review, analysis, and export is only possible with prior consent in the 'Form' type (one-page survey), in which registration information, not opinions, are collected.

 

Identifiers belong to the group of system variables which can be used in e-mail communication, i.e. in notifications or e-mail invites; at the same time, identifiers allow identification of each unit. When editing a questionnaire, in addition to the identifiers for the system variable, any variable can be marked (we select the 'System variable' in the 'Advanced' tab when editing individual questions), which enables its use in email communication. 

 

The IP addresses of the respondents cannot be displayed in the data, since they are not tracked and are recorded separately from the survey data, as defined by our Privacy Policy.
