Bulletin Board Focus Groups & Diaries


Collabito also provides over time (asynchronous) discussions as essential parts of your qualitative projects.

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

Our discussion boards can be used in many ways. The setup can easily be customized to suit your needs.

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

Collabito is cloud software, you don’t need to install anything. You and other participants only need a browser.


Choose from 3 Types of Asynchronous Focus Groups

Respondents’ diaries & blogs

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 on all posts or other comments.

Private diaries & blogs

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

They communicate only with the moderator.

Online bulletin board research

Classic online discussion boards with cascading layout, i.e. the moderator submits a topic and all participants can type their posts into one common forum.
