Discussion Boards & Respondents’ Blogs

Collabito also provides asynchronous discussions as essential parts of your qualitative projects. 

No matter if your project has only only simple topic or you conduct a continuous qual study covering many topics. 

Our discussion boards can be used in many ways, the setup only depends on your needs.

You can invite your respondents into a project where each page represents a separate topic, you can combine asynchronous bulletin boards with live chats in one project.

Collabito is a cloud software, you do not need to install anything, you and other participants need only a browser.

Choose from 3 Types of Asynchronous Focus Groups

Respondents’ blogs & boards

The moderator enters task or discussion topic and each respondent creates a post about the topic or completes the task.

Respondents can see each other and can comment all posts or other comments.

Private blogs & boards

This module is almost the same as respondent blog, but respondents cannot see each other.

They communicate only with the moderator.

Forums, bulletin boards

Classical online discussion boards in a cascading layout. The moderator submit the topic and all participants can type their posts into one common forum.
