SurveyGizmo Hacks

At Researchscape we’ve been using SurveyGizmo to run most of our surveys. It has a lot of flexibility built in but the customization options make it easy to adapt it for our needs. Going to start posting some quick hacks that I’ve used to customize various surveys.

First one up is a simple table customization. By default the table layout is dynamic but if you have a scale question with some labels (eg Strongly Disagree – 1, 2, 3, 4, Strongly Agree – 5) the column will not be equally sized. However we don’t want to change the whole table to a fixed layout which would squeeze the row heading.

Solution is to add a CSS class to the table question and in the Style section add custom CSS to the survey like follows:

.fixed-columns td:nth-child(n+2) {
    width: 8%;
