CATI Comment Element

The CATI Comment element is only available when CATI Sample has been added to a project.


The CATI Comment element may be used to display instructions to your interviewers dictating the survey to a telephone respondent when they first start the survey. It is not shown to the respondents.

The instructions for your interviewers should show before the questions for respondents, so it's usually best to place this element at the very beginning of the survey.

1: Adding the CATI Element

To insert a CATI Comment element, add a new survey element, select the "Standard" tab and choose "CATI Comment". Then click "Insert":

2: In the Survey

A comment text field will show in the stage area. A corresponding comment icon will also show in the question tree. Add the instructions for your interviewers in the area provided.
