By leveraging DNA’s Questionnaire Comparison feature, you are able to efficiently analyze the Questionnaire data from your Event. By displaying the data in a vertical or stacked view, we've made it easier to read through long responses, understand the response history, and quickly dig into answers that may have changed. If you need to focus on only a certain Question Type or Supplier, filtering is also available to declutter your view so you are only seeing what is most important to you.
Please note, Questionnaire Comparison will only appear if there is a questionnaire in your Event.
