Options dialog: General tab
Use the General tab of the Options dialog to set defaults for options that control the way that questionnaires are displayed in UNICOM Intelligence Author.
Remember login details for activation
By default, UNICOM Intelligence Author prompts you to log into UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Server Admin the first time you activate a project, but the next time you activate a project in the same session of UNICOM Intelligence Author, it logs in automatically using the same details. Clear this box if you want to prompt for the UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Server server login details every time you activate. For example, if you are activating projects to more than one UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Server Admin server or URL, clear this option so that you can enter the correct details each time you activate. For more information, see Activating questionnaires.
This option is hidden when the questionnaire file is loaded from an UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Server (activation uses the authentication information you enter when logging into the UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Server).
Set Response Required to true for new questions
Select this option if you usually want to prevent respondents from skipping questions.
Clear this option if you usually want respondents to be able to skip questions.
Whenever you create a new question, it has the default set here; you can change this for individual questions after you create them.
Maximum response name length
By default, response names are automatically generated according to the response label. The default maximum response name length is 128 characters when the response name is not manually set. This option provides a means for limiting the maximum length auto-generated response names, but does not prevent users from changing the actual response names.
The minimum response name length is 3 (this helps ensure unique response names).
The maximum response name length is 128.
