Question Settings | Pseudonyms


Updated over a week ago

Often, question names may be long and have complicated punctuation, spelling, or capitalization, which may be harder for creating reports, particularly with ETO Results.

For each individual question on a form, you can create a pseudonym to identify the question instead of using the text used in the question. Pseudonyms can be useful in reporting on un-flattened elements as they allow the report writer to identify elements through a name that is either shorter or more descriptive of what is being measured. Also, if the same question is available in multiple forms and should be compared in reporting, providing a pseudonym that is identical in all forms for the related questions will make it easier to complete comparative reporting.

In-Depth Instructions

Step 1 – Navigate to the proper management page.

  • Navigation Bar > "Site Administration" > Manage TouchPoints/Collection Types/Referral Forms

Step 2 – Either find the question you would like to edit or create a new question.

Step 3 – Check the Use Pseudonym box.

Step 4 – If the box is checked, a text box will display. Insert the pseudonym you wish to use for this question.

  • This text box is a required field when this option is checked.

Step 5 – Click the Save button to save your changes.

Note: the pseudonym will not display when the form is filled out. Additionally, pseudonyms are used as objects when reporting in un-flattened data.
