Walk-In Sessions and Workshops 2018:
Two new Key Survey Walk-In sessions have been scheduled for next Thursday and Friday. If you would like to attend please feel free to simply drop in during these times. You can find information regarding these sessions on the Workshops page online.
Workshops for 2018 will be published for viewing before Limited Service in December.
New Templates and PIFs
Two new Visual Templates have been added to all Key Survey accounts under a new folder "QUT Responsive Templates":
- QUT Flexible 2017: QUT's new look-and-feel
- QUT Lite...: The same flexible theme, without HD background images
These themes have been designed and tested to work across multiple devices including tablets and phones. Tweaking may be required if you wish to override an older survey design with the new ones. Please feel free to try these and send screenshots of any significant issues to email@example.com.
Older QUT Themes can still be found under the folder "QUT Classic Templates" and should be used for desktop only (unless specified for Mobile-Only)
In addition, technically updated PIF templates are currently in development and will go online by the end of the week. More information will be released once the new files go online.Back to Top
