Displaying Questions in Reports
It may not be efficient to display questions as they are, particularly in exporting and reporting.
- If a question or option includes picture, audio file, video file, etc., the question or the option may become unrecognizable when the relevant files (Example: if the option consists of an image only) are removed. In this way, it may not be possible to identify the problem or the option in the reports.
- If the question or the option contains a long or formatted text, it can take up a lot of space in the report and exporting.
For such cases, a “reporting name” (short name) may be given to the question. Questions and options that are given a reporting name are displayed with “reporting names” in reports and exports.
This feature can also be used for the options in multiple-choice questions to textualize the relevant option. For example, if the option is a shape, a text can be entered as “reporting name” to represent the shape. (For example, “bird”). With this method, the choice of the candidate can be obtained as a text equivalent.
Finally, this feature can also be used as FOREIGN ID / EXTERNAL ID for integrations with third party software. For example, if a question or an option has a UNIQUE ID in a 3rd party system, the relevant UNIQUE ID can be transferred as “reporting name”, which can then be used for integration.
