If you'd like to see a new feature in EZSurvey, please send us a note.
Features only in EZSurvey Pro:
Note: EZSurvey is designed to cooperate with programs from many manufacturers. We endeavor to maintain and increase EZSurvey's interoperability, but we cannot guarantee proper operations with programs over which we have no control.
EZSurvey can use many email systems, including Internet mail (POP3/SMTP), Exchange, Outlook, GroupWise, cc:Mail 6+, Notes 4.6+, and Eudora. In order for EZSurvey to read your inbox, mail programs should be configured to store email messages on the server, rather than downloading them to your computer. You may want to create a new email account for use with EZSurvey.
EZSurvey has been tested with all the standard web servers including: Apache (Windows, UNIX, and Linux), CERN httpd, Lotus Domino (NT), Microsoft IIS (Windows), NCSA, Netscape (NT and UNIX). Source code for CGI scripts is included. The CGI scripts are designed to serve 10-100 simultaneous network connections, which can handle 50-5000 simultaneous users, depending on the web server and the survey. Higher volume versions are available upon request.
EZSurvey uses the following file formats: DBF (xBase), HTML, PDF, XML. EZSurvey is written in C++. EZSurvey's forms have always been stored in XML format as an extension of the Electronic Form System.
The server requirements for running EZSurvey 2002 using Microsoft's Windows 2000 and IIS 5.0 are as follows: Note: We strongly recommend installing the most current service pack for your operating system and web server.
The system requirements depend on how you are planning to use the program, and on the other loads placed on the server, since few organizations have a server dedicated only to EZSurvey.
Minimal requirements for short surveys with a low number of simultaneous hits can get by using a 500Mhz server with 128MB ram. The survey itself only requires about 2MB of hard disk space. More space may be required to hold the server data file, depending on how much data you collect.
Recommended level would be 800MHZ or higher, with 256+MB ram. This will handle most surveys that can be built using EZSurvey.
Multi-page (50+) surveys distributed to a wide audience(1000+), and those that contain ample opportunities for write in text data place the greatest load on the server.
Higher server load will reduce the speed at which survey forms load into the web browser.
