Automatic Summaries vs. Answer Piping in Apian SurveyPro

Someone on the Apian discussion list had a question about the SurveyPro 5 Answer Summaries feature, which is essentially:

  • You marked these responses, are you sure?
  • Print your replies for your records.

This got me to playing around with it a bit, and I ended up with a largely self-explanatory—because it's annotated—play survey here. (At least for a while, and if I eventually bump it for something else I'll update this post with a PDF or other details :-)

And for your experimenting fun, here's a zip of the SP5 file. For those who don't have SurveyPro 5, you can achieve a similar effect with Answer Piping, which is covered in the Dynamics chapter of your NetCollect User Guide.
