Building Surveys – The SMP Survey Editor

The Survey Editor drives the creation of your surveys.  It is an easy-to-use design platform that makes building complex surveys easy.

The left pane of the survey editor provides a tree structure diagram of your survey questions and logic. This is where you add, remove, and order your questions and logic.

The right hand pane contains all the parameters that need to be completed to build your question.  It also provides a large number of options that enable you to control how your question and its answers will look and behave in certain situations.

The centre pane displays a full working model of your question as it will appear to the respondent.  In this way you can play with the parameters in the right hand pane and get instant feedback as to what your question will look like and how it will behave. This makes learning the system a breeze.
