New Features


Autosum Element

The new Autosum element greatly simplifies the process for adding autosum functionality to your surveys. With the element, you no longer need to first add a number question and then navigate through the style and question menus to get setup  -- you just add a the question, adjust your settings, and BAM! You're good to go.

The Autosum element is available now within the Survey Elements menu. Look for it alongside our other Standard question types:

Survey Editor Guardrails

When working with complex surveys, deleting questions and elements can be quite a process, especially if you're using a lot of conditional logic. However, that process doesn't have to be stressful.

With the new guardrail system, you can delete elements with confidence, knowing that you'll receive a warning if you're about to remove something another question or element depends on. Guardrail warnings are issued when you attempt to delete questions or answers referenced in element conditions or when deleting parent elements, blocks or  loops, with referenced elements.

Audit Logs

With the new audit log updates, you can now find more information on user, project, and group permissions in the audit logs within your account menus in the portal.

Programming & Tools


The Decipher API has been updated to allow you even more control over your projects. You can now archive or unarchive projects using a few simple API calls.

Archive Projects

Use the archive project call to archive a project just as you would from the portal.
