Project Type Considerations

Depending on the project type, a survey's project page can include all or just some of the above information. The following sections outline what is included for each available project type.

Campaigns Only Project

Campaigns Only projects use only the Campaign Manager and do not display any fielding statistics. The project page for Campaigns Only projects includes only the 'Shared Documents', 'Users', and 'Campaigns' tabs, along with the project description and tags boxes.

Information Only Project

An information only project is useful for storing and filing projects that were not created on the system. This project type can be used for historical purposes. 

The project page for Information Only projects includes only the 'Shared Documents', and 'Users' tabs, along with the project description and tags boxes.

SPSS Import Project

SPSS Import projects are created using data from a compatible SPSS file. The project page for SPSS Import projects displays the same fielding statistics as for regular projects, if available. It also includes the 'Shared Documents', 'Users', and 'Reports' tabs, along with the project description and tags boxes.
