February 20th Technical Release Notes

Release Date: February 20, 2018    

New Features

Crosstabs: Response Base

  • Clients can now change your base to use the count of responses as your base for multi-select question types.  To use, open the table editor in Crosstabs and change your base type to “Count of Responses.”  Your table will change the base to the number of responses, as opposed to the number of respondents who answered the question.  This only applies to checkbox style questions.
