Academy #38 - Shutting down the CAPI Manager II

CAPI

NIPO has started a project migrating all the functionality of the classic "CAPI Manager" to the (online) "Nfield Manager".

Academy #34 - Survey performance

Online

Recently NIPO introduced Survey performance for Nfield Online, as part of fieldwork monitoring. Survey performance metrics are very important to make sure that your survey is technically running fine. But perhaps even more crucial is that these metrics give insights in how your respondents are experiencing your surveys.

30 June 2021

Academy #33 - Nfield Online introduction session

Online

When onboarding new Nfield Online customers we always organize an online introduction course to ensure a smooth start using Nfield. One of the NIPO trainers will go through the whole research process and will teach how to use the many features Nfield Online has, also taking into consideration the specific needs of the customer. We decided it would be a good idea that in this series of NIPO Academy sessions we will do such a session for a wider audience.
