How To Complete A Survey

This article will go over how to fill out and submit a survey from Pruvan Mobile.


Each survey question has a general layout with the Question (a) at top, Help Text (b) below the question, the Answer choices (c) in the middle, and a comment box (d) at the bottom.  There are also menu buttons that are covered below.


Swipe up and down to scroll through the survey.  You can also use a 'flick' gesture to quickly scroll.  It is not necessary to answer everything in order as long as you answer all of the required questions before submission.  There is also a Review button that will pop up a window where you can look over all of the available questions and jump to any one of them.

  1. Scrolling
  2. Review Button
  3. Tap a question to jump there from the Review page



Some questions will trigger other questions to become available depending on your answers.  For instance, if you answer the question "Are there shrubs present?" with "Yes", then you would enable other questions about the shrubs, while if you answered no it would skip those questions.  When a survey is properly set up you won't have to answer unnecessary questions.  

Required questions will be red.  Once you answer a required question it will turn to black.  Black (unanswered) questions are optional.  Once a question is answered it will receive a green check mark on the right. 


Photo Requirements

Photo requirements define how many photos you have to take based on the question or statement provided.  Photo requirements will have a minimum and maximum number of photos that you can take.  These are shown by the photo count box (highlighted in red); the first number is the number of photos already taken for the question, the second number is dependent on the color of the box.  In a red box the second number is the minimum number of photos required, which has not yet been met.  In a green box the second number is the maximum number of photos required, after the minimum has been met.

Tap the camera icon (circled in green) to go to the camera or tap the gallery icon (circled in orange) to use the Survey Gallery.



Before you can submit a survey in Pruvan Mobile you need to make sure that all the questions are answered and that all of the photo requirements have been met.  The easiest way to do this is to look for Red text as you're going through your survey.  If it's still red, it's not ready.  Use the review pop up as a quick way to see what's been done, and what's still left to do.



Once you have reviewed your survey and determined that it is good to go, tap the Submit button at the bottom of the survey (or at the bottom of the Review window).  You should be returned to the Project Details screen and receive a message that the survey was submitted successfully.  Otherwise you will receive a message to complete all requirements and be dropped back to a question (or photo requirement) that has not been answered yet.


Exiting a Survey Early

Should you need to stop filling out the survey you can press the back arrow / survey title (a).  This will save and exit the survey.  There are also some options for saving, loading, and resetting the survey:

  1. Save - This will save the state of your survey; that is the answers and photos you've already taken
  2. Load - This will restore the last save-state; tap the menu button (b) to access this option
  3. New - This will reset the entire survey (erase everything)
