Vertical Grids/Tables in Askia

People often ask why Askia is a better platform for online surveys than many of the free or very cheap packages out there in the market. The above question shows this nicely in my view. We want to make answering survey questions as easy as possible for the respondents, so here we have compressed a lot of questions into a single, mobile responsive screen, rather than 5 or 6 screens.

Quota: sticking to the script

Quota: sticking to the script

Nobody likes quota. They have the off-putting echo of a well-wishing community reluctantly leaving Apartheid behind. If researchers mention quota, it’s because you did not hit the targets.
