Online Form ReviewWritten on June 6th, 2017 by Raniere Silva

In the next few posts I will look at some of the online form tools available and try to discovery if the have the features that I want.
List of desired features
Possibility to download the answers
Because we want to use Python or R for our data analyse.
To owner of the survey and survey responder.
Full range of answer type

- short text
- multiple choice
- linear scale
Extra points if support
- multiple choice grid
- file upload
Mark question as required
Because otherwise people will not answer some questions.
Split the form into sections
Because forms can be very very very long.

Special for short text that is often used for email.
