FileMaker Based Survey System Finalized

Waves in Motion has released the final version of their FileMaker based survey system, Dragon Web Surveys 6.0. Dragon Web Surveys allows users to administer multiple surveys easily, while also providing tools to collect and analyze data. According to Waves in Motion:

Waves in Motion has released the Dragon Web Surveys 6.0, a powerful, cross-platform, FileMaker Pro-based web survey tool, which allows users to create, publish and tabulate internet-based surveys with no web programming needed.

The Dragon 6.0 now features conditional branching, multiple page surveys, multiple-user configurations and administrative controls, including individual user accounts, security and viewing preferences. Respondents can be restricted with four levels of authentication, including email and IP addresses, and results can be processed almost instantaneously with faster processing and reporting time.

Additionally, the Dragon 6.0 employs idle-time processing and idle-time saving for better performance. "When the server isnit busy, the Dragon can automatically process responses so the results are ready when you want to see them. And when processing, it will keep your custom reports up to date as well," said Geoff Coffey of Waves in Motion.

Users can quickly design and host web surveys locally using FileMaker Pro 5 Unlimited. Users without FileMaker Pro 5 Unlimited can create and export their surveys for remote hosting using Waves in Motionis hosting services.

  • Faster processing and reporting time
  • Multiple section surveys
