Checkbox Online to be Updated to Version 2015 Q4

The latest Checkbox version, 2015Q4, is scheduled to be released to Checkbox Online (hosted) customers on December 14th starting at 6am EST. Online accounts may experience 15-20 minutes of downtime at this time.

Version 2015 Q4 should be released to Server customers within a couple of days after the Checkbox Online release, barring any major issues.

Below is a complete list of the new features, enhancements and bug fixes you can expect in version 2015 Q4.

If you have any questions or concerns about the release, please contact our Support Team.  

Features & Enhancements:

  • Asynchronous Workflow : This feature dramatically increases performance of the application. While performance will be enhanced for smaller, more compact surveys, the biggest improvement will be felt with larger, more complex surveys. Depending on the size of the survey, the load time of the initial survey page may be decreased by up to 90%.
  •  Javascript Item : The new javascript item allows survey editors to embed Javascript into a survey. There are many possible uses of the Javascript item,  including the ability to embed Analytics Conversion codes, create pop ups, and gain complete control over the look and feel of the survey page by directly accessing the CSS of the survey via Javascript.
  • Google Analytics : You can now add a Google UA code to your survey to track visits, goal completions, any many other stats.
