Publish - Pocket PC Handhelds

Raosoft EZSurvey for Pocket PC creates surveys and forms for Pocket PC and Windows CE devices! This add-on works with both EZSurvey Pro and EZSurvey Standard.

EZSurvey for the Pocket PC runs a local web server to interact with Pocket Internet Explorer. Server-side validation and reporting allows the user to be presented with dynamic menus summarizing the captured data and encouraging entry. Client-side JavaScript allows you to program calculations and validation directly into Internet Explorer. The EZSurvey screen on the Pocket PC can show a menu of up to 16 different forms or surveys on a single Pocket PC.

The Pocket PC can run any form that EZSurvey can generate. However, because of Pocket IE's display limitations, EZSurvey's default "plain HTML" display works best; table-based layouts and advanced templates can be slow and awkward on a 240-pixel screen.

Since EZSurvey is designed to generate HTML that is 508(c) compliant, you can tap on the labels as well as the input items to activate a form item. Every time the database changes, those changes are logged in an outgoing email queue. If the Pocket PC is docked in a cradle or travels within range of a Wi-Fi base station, the changes will automatically be transmitted to your server, where the data can be merged with a master database for further processing. Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) Rijndael encryption is being considered to secure Wi-Fi transmissions.
