SurveyToGo SmartWatcher

From Studio Version 370 we have added a SmartWatcher only for Production Surveys when using the 'Multiple Add' you will be prompt that SurveyToGo has identified Answer/Topic Replacement and will ask if you would like to SurveyToGo to assist and safely preserve the correct id's.

Choosing 'No' will load the new list as is and might cause issues with already collected data. 

Choosing 'Yes' Will prompt the following window which shows the new answers/topics that no match was found for them.

Click on one of the answers/topics to see the similar matches found choose on of them if they are indeed the answers you wanted to replace in order to save and keep the coding. The best match will be shown as the first option and then the rest of the answers will show.

Please Note:

  • Clicking on 'Clear Match' will clear the selection and you will be able to choose another answer. 
  • Once you choose an answer/topic it will not be shown for the others as an option. 

 Un-check the option 'Hide Matched Answers' to see all the answers including those that SurveyToGo has found a match for. 


If you wish to update and change the current answers, you can use the ‘Multi-Upd’ button.
It will over-write the current answers and even add new answers.

That’s it!
