SurveyCTO Webinar Series: Building smarter forms with server dataset workflows

In this webinar: Learn advanced dataset usage for longitudinal studies

Since much of survey work and data collection is longitudinal in nature, it can be helpful to use pre-existing data to reference and confirm that the same subjects are being observed in past and current survey phases. In a previous SurveyCTO webinar on “pre-loading”, we demonstrated how to pre-populate your forms with pre-existing data. But suppose you need to continuously collect and update data for both initial and subsequent survey rounds? With SurveyCTO’s server dataset functionality, you’ll be able to configure these kinds of dynamic workflows for your longitudinal studies.

Learn more about advanced dataset usage by using these sample forms and data to construct a basic registration system, which will allow you to register, deregister, and update information about survey subjects.
