Summary10703: design: hard to enter data manually in data entry screen
Description

I want to manually enter data as admin in data entry screen. It is very hard to find which answer option belongs to which question as the questions are left aligned while the drop down for answers are right aligned. Could there be some adjustments here to keep it clear which question I give an answer?

Why has this screen to be different than the dataentry screen? See screenshot.

Could the enclosed screen be used for editing answers? The design is so bad I really dont want to edit answers as it is hard to decide which question I gave an answer to.

The uploaded screenshot with date 2016-03-07 20:50 shows how it should look like while the screenshot of today shows how it should NOT look like.

First impressions :

It's going to be a long task.

Two functions are implied :

  • dataentry::editdata() Edition of an response
  • dataentry::view()        Creation of a response (should be renamed to create() )

Both generate their own HTML inside dataentry controller, in the old quanda style (switch based on the question type, then HTML generation).

Of course, editdata() prefill the form with the response datas, whereas view() just show an empty form. So editdata() is much more complex than view().

If editdata() would have been the best looking one, it would have been "quiet easy" to use use its HTML for view() (just parsing empty value for all inputs). But here, it's the contrary. We should use the view() HTML for dataedit()....

So, here how I'm going to proceed:

  1. Like I did for quanda, I will create views for the editdata() function, so the HTML will easier to read and modify.
  2. Then I'll update those views for them to look like view() (or better)
  3. THen I'll use those very same views for the function view(), so the same HTML will be used to edit a response or to add a response.

I think a plugin can be very insteresting for this.

My idea :

  1. Edit an answer using srid : https://gitlab.com/SondagesPro/questionExtraSurvey/blob/master/questionExtraSurvey.php#L154
  2. Use beforeSurveyPage to allow or not loadResponse and set survey to All in one page

Really less devloppment to do. Hope fine time start of 2018 for this
