The submission page of a questionnaire consists of two main sections: the navigation menu on the left hand-side and the content area in the centre and right hand-side of the page.
The first tab in the navigation menu links back to the initial submission page where the basic information of the questionnaire is displayed in the content area.
The other tabs link to each section of the questionnaire, with the root sections being displayed by default. Other sections can also be displayed in the navigation menu by selecting the appropriate option when creating the questionnaire.
Status icons are displayed on the right-hand side of each tab in the navigation menu, providing information on the completeness of that particular section. The different possible statuses are:
• • • • •
No answers added
Mandatory questions missing
All mandatory questions answered
All questions answered
When a respondent accesses the submission page of a questionnaire, the content area displays the basic details of the questionnaire, including title, introductory remarks and the languages of the questionnaire.
From here, respondents can change the language in which the questionnaire is displayed. When a respondent navigates to a section, the content area displays that section and all sections and questions contained within it.
On the right-hand side of each tab in the navigation menu, there is a collapse/expand icon that hides or displays that section’s contained components.
A respondent’s answers can be saved by clicking on the ‘Save all’ button inside each section. An auto-save feature also saves any changed responses every thirty seconds, and whenever a user moves between sections.
Respondents can submit a questionnaire if they have replied to all of the questionnaire’s mandatory questions.
Once they have submitted the questionnaire the administrators of the questionnaire will be notified of the submission. Once the questionnaire has been submitted the respondent will not be able to return to that questionnaire’s submission page, unless they request the submission to be reverted (see below).
If a respondent wishes to return to a submitted questionnaire to make any edits to the answers, it can request that the administrator revert its submission.
