The Enquette consists basically of one or more pairs of question item and evaluation control, eventually organized in more layers. It either lets the visitor to choose his votes or it displays results statistics together with distribution graphics.

The Enquette can be implemented either as a component (menu) or as a part of Joomla content (article). An important feature is the export in the Office Open XML format (e. g. MS Excel) enabling further processing with external tools.

  1. Have a look at the Enquette Anatomy
  2. Purchase and Install Enquette package
  3. Create Enquette Menu, Create Enquette Module or Append Enquette to an Article
  4. Set up Enquette
  5. Optionally, Invite selected respondents
  6. Download / upload Enquette
  7. Work up results with Excel

An Enquette may be implemented either as Menu Component (see Create Enquette Menu) or as a Content (Article) Module (see Append Enquette to an Article).

An Enquette consists of one or more Layers, each containing one or more Question Items. All the front end display is consequently Multilingual.

The first Enquette's Layer may look like this:

Single Criterion Layer

The Visitor either may switch free between Layers like in the snapshot, or he/she can move wizard-like with "previous" - "next", or he/she can be forced to fill the current Layer and continue with the next one up to the the final Submit.

In a Single Criterion Layer, each Question Item has just one Evaluation Control. This can be Checkbox, Dropdown, Multiselect Dropdown, Radio Buttons, Numeric field, Date picker, Text field or Text Area.

Controls like Dropdown or Radio Buttons are filled according to an Evaluation Schema, which is a set of textual strings with associated numeric values.

Depending on Enquette Settings, the Visitor may just input and Submit his responses, see Enquette Results or switch between both modes.


The next Layer may be of multiple Criteria type and look like this:

Multicriteria Layer

There is a set of Criteria - Evaluation Controls ordered in columns with column headers, common for all Layer's Question Items.

Evaluation Controls may be of different type and different Evaluation Schema.


In the Results mode, the first Enquette Layer may look like this:


Instead of input elements, Evaluation Controls display statistic and graphic information.

The statistics contains the count of each value's responses and its pc ratio, the count and eventually the mean of Control's responses total and the count of No Votes and its pc ratio.

Pc ratios are also depict as a colored background bar.
