Title: Questionnaire Form Plug-in

Questionnaire ImageThis plug-in lets people carry out questionnaire surveys for various purposes and features;

1. Single selection and multiple selections
2. Allowing everyone or specific user(s) to post an answer
3. Limiting visibility of the answers and the result
4. Allowing a questioner to notify specific people of posting the question
5. No notification of the submission of the answers of somebody else
6. New: An Answer Table tab under the question shows an inline list of responses, and total number of responses for each choice.
7. New: Click the Export CSV button to export response data as a comma separated variable file for spreadsheet analysis.

The feature 5 is a great improvement from Forum5621: Questionnaire Widget Plugin. In Forum5621: Questionnaire Widget Plugin, since each answer was a comment, the 1st answerer would get lots of notifications of the following answers because of the auto-watching capability. This plug-in would not send such notifications and not bother you any more.

Note: This plug-in is styled as a multi-choice vote with ability to comment. You may also be interested in Forum6918.
