Field & Device Audit

Device Audit is an exclusive feature of QuestionPro Offline App that allows you to verify and eliminate fraudulent survey data collection. By using various on-site recordings and reviews, you can now judge if the survey data entered by a respondent is authentic or fraudulently generated by the researcher. This feature is particularly helpful when our clients and users send employees or external vendors for on-site data collection, away from their office premises where there is lack of quality control mechanisms.

  • To capture Audio, Picture or Location at the start, end or between questions of the survey please make sure to add a page break between questions. If all the questions are on the same page audit data will not be consistent.
