Can this survey be recreated in Storyline?

I'm trying to come up with a more interactive, visual way to deliver a customer satisfaction survey and came across the Slavery Footprint Survey. http://slaveryfootprint.org/survey/#where_do_you_live

Aside from the very thought-provoking topic, I really liked the design. Can this be replicated in Storylne, and if so, how would you be able to capture the responses?

I know we've got lots of talented minds here in the community and I'm looking to receiving lots of responses

yes is the simple answer 

There is a lot of work to achieve that but it is achievable, the resonses can be captured in normal survey questions just hidden behind a gui

I think there are a couple of UI issues with some of the survey but overall a lovely survey

thanks for sharing


Thanks Phil! Other than an LMS, is there a way to capture the survey responses? I tried the email option and it just dumps raw data into an email. There's no easy way to pull the data out. Our organization doesn't have an LMS and I would really like to use SL for the survey, versus Survey Monkey or GoogleDocs.

Just a word about the UI....this survey was highlighted on the forum about a year ago. At the time some of the question components 'couldn't' be recreated in Storyline, for example the data sliders. But now there's a great work around for that. I think that most all of it could be done.

Even if you do have an LMS I'm not sure if it is that easy to pull the data out with the same flexibility that you have with, for example, Survey Monkey. But it would be nice to get that, with the additional possibility of making the survey interface really engaging.

We've done the whole thing by building our own questions and exporting the SL variable values to a raw database. Once you have them there you can download to excel for processing in any way you want.

If you use SL's quizzing slides, the variables that hold individual answers are not obvious and you can't see them in the SL editor. But we're working to identify them in the published code and then build an easy way to export them too.

The database connections are complex, not for a pro programmer but too much for an ID like me. My programming partner built a very simple javascript command for each variable that I can paste into a trigger and all the dB save or retrieve stuff is done in the background.

We can help you more with this, just send a private message any time.

There is an offer if ever I saw one.
