Appendix B: Images and Diagrams

This Appendix is intended to serve as a quick reference to the images used in both the online A2J Guided Interview® interface and A2J Author® interface. You will find images for each type of Avatar that can be used in an interview and an image of the default end graphic. In addition, you will find a detailed diagram of each of the “Tabs” in A2J Author®: Interview, Variables, Steps, Questions, Reports, Preview, and Upload. Diagrams of certain pop-up windows are also provided, including the Variables Information window, and each of the Tabs in the Question Design window.

Question Design Window

The version 6.0 question design window is no longer broken into separate tabs. It is all contained in one pop-up window. The following screenshots will show you the various components of the question design window. To access them in A2J Author, you simply need to double click on the question name from the Pages Tab or Map Tab or click on the question icon on the Map Tab.

Figure B14: Question Design Window. If you continue scrolling in the question design window, you can see additional features, including the Learn More Help, Nested Repeat Loops, the Fields Section, the Buttons Section, and the Advanced Logic Section.



Figure B15: Question Design Window. Logic can be inserted to run before the question is asked to the end user or after the end user clicks the “Continue” button. If it is run before the question is displayed and the action is to skip the question, that question will not be displayed to the end user. If it is run after the user presses “Continue,” then it will be shown to the user every time.
