Anonymizing Data After Survey Completion

Learn how to anonymize data after your survey has been completed

This method may be particularly useful when you want to work with your survey data, but not in a manner which identifies your respondents.

Snap Survey Software stores respondent data in a file with the survey name and extension .rdf (respondent data file), and replies for each respondent are held in individual records in that file. When you delete the variable that holds the personal information from the survey file (.mdf), the details remain in the data file. It is possible to remove the personal data entirely.

We’ve create a helpful worksheet to walk you through the following steps: Continue reading

GDPR – The New Normality and the Impact on the Survey Marketplace

What inspired us to develop a GDPR compliance tool for survey authors

So, the “GDPR Day” has come and gone, the world hasn’t ended, and I’m still getting emails from people I expect to (and a few that I don’t), but many seem to be privacy policy updates and I can always unsubscribe.

Some cookie alert and privacy messages seem a little more sophisticated than before but, in many respects, the new GDPR world doesn’t feel much different to the pre-GDPR world right now. A friend recently suggested that the GDPR is the Twenty-teens (“Tweenies”?) equivalent of the Millennium bug, i.e. a monumental amount of preparation and fuss then nothing happened! Continue reading

Tip: Use the survey link to seed data into your survey

Use the survey link to seed data into your survey using Snap Survey Software

If you are providing your survey participants with a link to your online survey, you have the option to seed data directly into the variables.

Why might you want to do this? Here are a few examples:

  • You are sending email invites using your own system – the tool will help create the structure of the link.
  • You want to add an identifier (name of a business, location, etc.). This could be used in conjunction with our QR Code Generator.

QR codes seemed to be everywhere a few years ago, right? The truth is, these 2D mobile barcodes are still being used by consumers to access coupons, download mobile apps, view product information, watch promotional videos, and more. But, more importantly – at least in our opinion – if you’ve “moved on” from QR Codes, you’re abandoning a very useful tool for surveys.
