Enter Surveys

    The Enter Surveys module provides a quick way of entering the results from paper surveys.  Although the form looks complicated, it is actually a very simple process with a variety of short-cuts build into the selection of names, categories, tasks, and other information.  The user will save time by consulting the context-sensitive help and learning some of the short cuts.

Click on a number for additional information

Select the name of the person who completed the survey so that name is highlighted.  Either type the first few letters of the last name directly into the table to move to the first name meeting the criteria.  (Push Esc to start over.)  Or type the first few letters of the last name in the Search field below the table.  (If you type a "st,b", e.g., you will only see names where the last name begins with "st" and the first name begins with "b".  Then click Clear to see all names again.)
