Hosting SurveyPro Surveys OnLine
Any survey designed to be taken online needs to be hosted on a web server that can interact with the respondent's
browser. The web server supplies the questionnaire pages, implements login authentication, validates answers, handles skip logic,
provides online reports, pipes data in or out, and links entry and exit with other sites.
Afterwards the answers are downloaded for in-depth analysis.
There are several ways to obtain an appropriate server and connect your SurveyPro design/analysis workstation to it:
- QuestionWeb Cloud: You rent a folder on our secure cloud server
to hold each survey while it is online, set the folder ID in SurveyPro
and simply click a button for upload or download. We handle the rest.
See QuestionWeb Details.
QuestionWeb is suitable for most users — it is the least expensive and easiest.
- Own In-House Server: You license the server application and work with your IT staff to
install the application and setup the upload/download link permissions.
There is a one-time setup for each major revision of SurveyPro (like 4.0 to 5.0), after which
the project upload/download behaves like QuestionWeb. Managing your own server is generally motivated by
special restricted security policies.
- SurveyHost Service: Here you might supply us a Word document or you could develop a questionnaire
in SurveyPro. We complete the web setup on our server for you. This option is often motivated by customization
in how the questionnaire looks or behaves, leveraging our specialized web coding expertise.
You have a Control Panel (dashboard) to manage the survey while online and download your data.
