CATI in Filemaker - 02-06-2004 , 08:03 AM
Few years ago I used FM for data entry for survey research. Then, the
already filled in questionnaires were entered in Filemaker, question
by question. Now more than 5 years later in a new workplace I want to
explore the possibility of using FM again, now for Computer-Assisted
Telephone Interviewing (CATI). I have few questions for this fine
1) Can Filemaker easily work with skip patterns? (that is automate
this process: if value in field Q1 = 1 then go to field Q2 else go
2) Can the data-entry order be programmed such that once a field is
completed (according to a list of values or number of digits)
automatically go to next field?
3) Could I have a field (container or calculated field) that looks up
text for current field?)? Rather than placing the exact wording of
every single question on a given layout, I would like the top of the
screen display current question.
4) If anyone knows where to find template for using FileMaker for CATI
those templates may answer all three questions.
Thank you for reading this far.
