“Questions” – a new form type for questionnaires, petitions and consultations.

A new form type, “questions”, joins the stable of Cameo forms. This provides general data acquisition for things like questionnaires and petitions, or anywhere you want to collect structured responses to a set of questions connected to a respondent. Accompanying the form is a new section, “questionnaire and petition responses”, in “member info”. You can see the responses to your form in various ways there, including on bar charts, pie charts and maps. The form identifies a list to collect together the responses and uses custom fields for your questions. A new custom field lets you ask them to pinpoint a location on a map. Read More…

Expired and cancelled event bookings

Cameo now retains any bookings which expire or are cancelled, instead of deleting them. Additional information is added to provisional bookings to offer insight as to why a booking may have been abandoned. This information also to make it easier to process refunds if a payment was made but the booking did not complete. Also, all bookings can now be purged from Cameo after a number of months or years.

The visual form editor

Cameo version 9 introduces a new visual form editor. The Manage Forms section of the Forms menu overlays controls on a real, embedded copy of the form where you can make changes and immediately see the effect. For example, a pencil icon lets you re-word a chunk of text. The idea is you step through the form as a visitor would, using the controls to make changes as you go. Read More…
