A simple trick to make most of the ‘Smile Sheet’ interaction

How many of you use ‘Smile Sheet’ interaction to gather user feedback on happiness quotient?
Do you sometimes feel restricted by the emoticons to be rated?
What if you need to know the user preference in the rating range of ‘Excellent’ to ‘Poor’?
Raptivity’s Smile sheet interaction allows you to change the emoticon images for the rating only. It doesn’t allow you to change the user response based on the images selected. You would still receive fixed responses as “Very happy”, “Happy”, “Neutral”, and so on.

Recently, one of our customers pointed this out and was looking for a quick fix. We realized that this could be something bothering our other customers as well, hence thought of sharing this handy tip with everyone today.

1. Save and publish your smile sheet interaction in HTML5.
2. In the published output folder, right click and open the .html file in a notepad (Ex., if your interaction is saved as sample, then open sample.html file)
3. Search for word “Neutral”. You would find something as follows:

4. Simply change the text to the values you want. So, for example, if you like to change “Very happy” to “Excellent” it would look as follows:

5. Save the .html file (by pressing Ctrl+S) and open the output file in a browser. To see the changes, simply submit the survey and the generated output would now have your customized values.

Simple! Right?
