Response page

This page specifies what to display after the responded completes filling out the questionnaire.

1If you choose "Display results page using settings on this page", a page will be constructed dynamically from your settings.

If you choose "Redirect to", the visitor's browser will be redirected to the specified URL after voting. If you specify a URL, the visitor's browser will go there. If you enter *, the browser will return to the same page as the voting form (the 'referer'). If you enter *?x=y, ?x=y will be appended to the URL of the referring page. This can be very useful with the Web Services API. The remaining items on the page do not apply if you choose this option.
Note that this option cannot be used with questionnaires embedded in a portal using the Cogix Survey Portlet .

2 Enter a title, page header, page body, and page footer text. These fields can be left blank. Page header, body, and footer can include HTML, using the HTML editor. The image used in the Questionnaire, if any, is also used automatically in the Response page. It is customary to include a message such as "Thank you for participating" in the Body field.

3 This option allows presenting respondents with a live tally of results, as is commonly done with online polls. Click on Show Questions and specify which questions should be tallied, and choose the options to present counts, percentages, and a bar graph.

For each question to be displayed, specify whether to display the question's name or the full question text by checking the respective boxes.

For each answer to each question, use the corresponding checkboxes to specify what elements to display: the value, the full text, the count of how many people have chosen that answer, the percentage of people who have given the answer, the average value of the responses (meaningful only when the values are numeric), and a percentage bar between 1 and 100 pixels wide.

The drop-down menu allows selecting whether to display the answers in the order in which they were asked, or most popular or most recent first (or last). Choosing "most popular on top" allows constructing top 10 lists, for example. Choosing "most recent first" allows constructing discussion-board style presentations.

4 After making all changes, press Submit. Then click on "Preview the response page". This will show how the results display will look, using the Response Style Template in use in this questionnaire's Place. Note that all the numbers, percentages and sizes of color bars will be random (percentages will not add up to 100%, for example).

After previewing the page, choose whether to continue by Publishing the questionnaire or whether to set additional options to non-default values. Most of the time, the default values are appropriate. We suggest that you continue reading about Publishing first and then continue with the options.

Note: changes in the Setup Response page do not take effect until the questionnaire is Published.
