Group options

The next options are available to each group:

  • A group must have a name to identify it. Be aware that the name does not have to be unique; internally it is  referred to by an unique ID. However it is advisable to use unique names.
  • You can add a descriptive text, to note some specifics of this group, what it is used for and so on.
  • In the dropbox just to the right of the word Options you can define which MIDAS  the group defaults to and fixates on. If set to <choose>, than the respondent will be able to select a MIDAS (ADULT, TEEN, KIDS, etc). 

There are some yes/no options that you need to set.

  • Email MIDAS-profile and IP to respondent. Set this to 'yes' if you want the profile sent to the respondent. Consider this choice well, because the respondent can not be guided through the profile with all the necessary nuances. The MIDAS way is to have a good convesation about the profile with an certified MIDAS-professional to get the most of it. There are however circumstances that might make it necessary  to send the profile, e.g. when it is used in a larger project with class-like workshops.
  • Email notification when respondent has finished. Set this to 'yes' if you would like to receive an email when the respondent has finished the MIDAS. This is useful when you mainly use the MIDAS in an individual setting and you do not want to check the group all the time.
  • Use expire date. When set to 'yes' and you save, then an extra option is revealed asking to set the expire date for 1, 2, 3 or 4 weeks.When adding respondents, an expire date will be added and the link will go stale after that date.
  • If MIDAS type is COACH: use extended report, switches on (when set to 'yes') an extended report developed by Frits Schoeren and the aMI, describing the challenges and benefits of the scales and subscales, with some general advises.
  • Simple codes and passwords. If set to 'yes' short passwords and usernames are generated, which can be given to a respondent to enter in the username and password fields of the login screen to get to the questionnaire. This is a feature used in schools, in which the teacher sends a pupil to the computer one by one, and in those cases 20 character usernames and passwords consisting of random numbers are a pain ...

Next are several checkboxes. Checking these will do the obvious thing: they set the program to ask for the named variables at the start of the questionnaire.
