Team B survey availableHi Gregg,

I am not arguing that I should read less to fill in the survey. I am suggesting a more accessible presentation. In this case a more accessible presentation would have all the content that I need to read  presented on the same page and not require multiple windows and/or back navigation.

That way you are not relying on referring  numbers and memory to fill in the form.

So, for example:
1: Instead of having many questions on each page, have one question at a time with all the information pulled together, or...

2:  (dare I suggest it) a divided view (such as frames or scrollable divs)  with:  
  1.. The question to be answered in one region,
  2.. The referring success criteria in another and 
  3.. The original comment in a third region. 

This  would be great as it is not relying on memory related abilities that not everyone has.


All the best
Lisa

  In order to take the comments submitted fully into consideration when passing each item it is necessary that the group read the entire posting from the commenter before reading and approving the suggested resolution.   This is too long to include all this in the questionnaire.  

   

  Yes - going through each of the comments individually is indeed a lot of work.   Sorry about that.

    For example

     

    " 

    Refer to Issue LC-465 for a description of the comment and proposed resolution.

    Refer to Issue LC-466 for a description of the comment and proposed resolution.

    Refer to Issue LC-545 for a description of the comment and proposed resolution.

    "

     

    Filling this out is  confucing and painful
