How can I edit my inaccurate data?

Gathering or collecting data may be a cumbersome task when it comes to conduct a field survey. This may also lead to incomplete or invalid or inaccurate data in some circumstances. So, Gosurvey has brought a new feature “Advance Export” where the user can edit the data collected if he/she finds the response inaccurate.

At present GoSurvey allows to export the responses in three formats i.e

  • Export to SPSS(.sav)
  • Export to Excel
  • Export to CSV

One more component is also there to the rundown i.e "Data Edit". This feature can be advantageous to the companies or organizations such as market research or survey companies. At times a user can face the issue of unsuitable data collected by the field survey team, so in order to avoid such things user can edit the data and can upload it back to the account.
