Each account has a Personal Media Library. This central repository holds all the media files (images, flash elements, PDFs, etc.) a user has uploaded. These media files can subsequently be included in multiple surveys without having to upload them each time separately.
Also, if a user wants to change a media file he does so in the media library and the change cascades across all his surveys. Each account receives 50 MB of space in its library, free of charge. If you require more space, please contact a CheckMarket customer representative. To include larger files you can always link to a URL on your own site.
All media stored in a user’s media-library is strictly private. CheckMarket cannot sell, transfer, or in any other way use this material without the user’s express consent.
Conditional branching (skipping)
Branching allows respondents that answer differently to be routed to different pages. Branching is accomplished using if, then, else logic and allows the surveyor to route respondents to different questions based on their specific answers to a question. It is used to help individualise a survey, and to collect data specific to individual respondents.
Piping is a feature that is used when you want to place the answer from one question into the text of a subsequent question. Piping also works in the sub-questions of a matrix question.
For instance you could ask a respondent in which department they work and then in a follow-up question on another page, you might ask them to rate department x, where the x is replaced by the name of the department they answered previously.
If you want to include the answer to a previous question in one or more following questions, you need to use the variable $$$Quest1$$$. You replace the ’1′ with the number of the source question from which you wish to use the answer. Naturally this variable can not be used on the same page as the source question.
