Using EyeQuestion, the option to use panels was always somewhat limited. Customers who have our EyeContact module have the option to create and manage advanced panels and have advanced panelist management options. We are happy to announce that in EyeQuestion 5, our basic panel management options have become more advanced due to the addition of multiple new modules.
Below are the modules that will be available in EyeQuestion 5:
Categories are used to store panelist information, meaning that this information will be visible on the panelist edit screen. Personal information such as allergies can now be added to the panelist overview and can be used to create dynamic panels, which in turn can be used in questionnaires. Categories differ from data that is being collected using projects as the data is not linked to products but linked to your panelists. Examples of categories are allergy information, shopping habits, household situation, income etc.
Previously, panelists that were added to the access list of a project could be saved as a panel and used again. In EyeQuestion 5, panels are created in the main menu and can be linked to projects afterwards. Users are still able to add and remove single panelists to the access list, but the creation of panels will have to be done in the Panel Management tab, found in the main menu. In your project you can now load the panels you have created in the Panel Management tab.
Apart from creating static panels, users are also able to create dynamic panels by adding categories and specifying the values. You can for example create a panel with users that are not allergic to wheat and are available to test on Monday morning. The list of panelists will then be added to the dynamic panel based on the created filter(s).
Scheduling and Calendar
Another addition for EyeQuestion 5 is the option for users to create a schedule for a project and for panelists to self-schedule. For each project a timeschedule can be created, this schedule is linked to the project and a specific location. Users will have the option to view all their deployed projects that have a timeslot, and location, allocated in the calendar overview in the main menu. This gives a quick overview of all the projects that will be running in the near future.
The final big change is the addition of email management, where users can create their own email templates. These templates can be loaded into a project and used for invites or confirmation emails. We have made this module multilingual, so if you have a multilingual project, based on the language of the panelists, the correct e-mail is sent. We also added some new placeholders that can be used by panelists to schedule for a project.
