FileMaker Based Survey System Updated

Waves in Motion has updated their FileMaker Pro based survey application, Poll-It, to version 3.0. Poll-It allows users to design, run, and analyze Web based surveys or questionnaires via FileMaker. Users are also able to host their surveys with Waves in Motion. According to Waves in Motion:

Waves in Motion today released Poll-IT 3.0, a powerful, cross-platform FileMaker Pro web polling tool, which allows users to create, publish and tabulate internet-based polls with no web programming needed.

Poll-IT 3.0 is the only web polling solution to add powerful two-question technology, enabling Poll-IT to provide ranked response-pair reporting and a cross-tab matrix instantly.

"Usually polls are one question deep but our solution provides a level of depth that gives you more insight into what people are thinking, " said Vincenzo P. Menanno of Waves in Motion. "With web-based polls, two questions are better than one."

Poll-IT 3.0 has been rewritten from the ground up. With multi-user support features, including per-user polls and security with basic authentication, Poll-IT 3.0 is able to handle multiple polls all running concurrently - and can process responses in milliseconds.

Users can design and host web polls locally using FileMaker 5 Unlimited or create and export their polls for remote hosting through Waves in Motion.

Standard features include:

  • Improved user interface
  • Idle-time saving
  • Multi-user support with per user polls and security
  • Support for unlimited polls
  • Unique two-question technology
  • Public or private results viewing option
  • Overview reports
  • Ranked reports
  • Cross-tab reports
  • Industry leading ease of use
  • Remote hosting available


Poll-IT 3.0 requires FileMaker 5 Unlimited or higher with a dedicated IP address. For users who donit own FileMaker Unlimited, a run-time version is available for remote hosting through Waves in Motion.

Poll-It is available for US$295. You can find more information at the Waves in Motion Web site.
