While collecting data via web forms is commonplace, they aren’t always a first choice for primary data collection from remote and low-resource populations. However, recent SurveyCTO web form improvements leave you with a lot more options to customize the form-filling experience to tailor forms for the needs of different audiences. As a result, this is a great time to re-evaluate methods when it comes to remote data collection.

Join us on May 5, 2021 at 1 PM UTC / 9 AM EST for our next webinar installment, where you’ll learn about how web form completion can be customized for the needs of different audiences.

Web forms are used for a great many scenarios. You can receive job applications, solicit internal feedback from your own organization, and if you can work around access challenges, you can use web forms to facilitate self-enumeration in research, and monitoring and evaluation (M&E) contexts. Broadening the range of data collection modes we make use of to generate primary data is a cornerstone of the Safe People + Data Initiative.

What you’ll learn

Join us on May 5th to learn more about the following in relation to customizing web forms:

  • How to set up web forms for the easiest use possible
  • How to set up web forms as securely as possible
  • Availability of form navigation options
  • An overview of complementary features, including interface and form translations
  • Recommendations on incorporating web forms into your data collection

Participants will learn about SurveyCTO’s approach to web forms and a detailed account of how to customize the form-filling experience for different audiences. This event should be helpful to new and experienced users (who might have missed recent developments).

How to attend

The webinar will be held on May 5, 2021 at 1 PM UTC / 9 AM EST. Register today to attend! We post video recordings of all webinars in our video library and share them on our Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn pages.
