What's the difference between the Regular and Plus versions and is it easy to upgrade?
The only differnce between the two version of our Survey software is the Plus version has image graphs and charts which are displayed in the Secured Admin section and can optionally be displayed to the Public.
Upgrading from the Regular version to the Plus version is as simple as overwriting the CGI files. No data will be lost, all surveys will remain usable without any need for updating them.
How do I link to Surveys from my home page?
You need to create your own A href tags and place them anywhere you like. You can find the URL to your Surveys by loading them from the Admin Section.
Log in -> Select a Survey -> Select View
Copy and paste the URL from the new window and use it in your A href tags. E.g.
<a href="/perl/esurvey/esurvey.cgi?action=viewSurvey&id=1091828914">Load Survey</a>
I receive a 404 error when trying to Export my data.
Open up your copy of esurvey_key.cgi and edit the following found on line 34 :
$ExportURL = "http://www.server.com/psjs_datalogs/esurvey$FolderPass";
Enter your actual domain name in place of "YOURDOMAINNAME". Then upload the script to your server so that it overwrites your current copy.
How do I assign a score to answers?
After creating a new Question/Answer, click on it. If it's a checkbox or radio button type question, you can add a score for each available answer.
What are the Substitue Markers?
Substitue Markers act as variables allowing you to display the script generated values or User inserted data into your Thank You Page or email notifications. Please see the Users Guide for a full list of available markers and their meanings.
What is the Remarks marker and how do I use it?
The remark associated with the percentile scored. Each percentile has it's own remark which you can edit at the very bottom of each Survey's settings.
Please see the Users Guide, Substitution Markers chapter for detailed information on how to use Markers.
