I’m an interaction design masters student in NCAD [National College of Art and Design] and I’m starting out on a project looking in to the current renting process in Ireland and seeing how we can apply our magic skills to solve some of the biggest pain points for people when trying to rent.
I have a VERY short survey which would be fantastic if some of your readers would be happy to contribute to.

    I’m going to make a small suggestion about your survey, and I make it in the spirit of constructive criticism:

    Take out the “witty” commentary from the questions and possible answers.

    If you want the survey to be unbiased and accurate, don’t embed it with suggestions that the whole thing is a pain in the ass – otherwise you just validate what it is you are expecting to hear. A good survey should be impartial and allow the respondants to form their own views.

    “What services have you engaged with in trying to find a property?

    Select any that apply”

    You can only select one option.

    I didn’t understand anything in the blurb. I’ll take a luck at the survey now and come back shortly with my analysis.

    Renting/buying in Cork is a nightmare.
    Bad: availability, choice, construction, insulation, services.
    Prices are high due to lack of availability.
    Building is impossible unless you sprouted here.

    Translation: we’re making a largely pointless app so you can do something you already do but we’ll make some money if get lucky.

    Hi, can you explain a little more about what the data is going to be used for or what else is happening in the background to all this.

    One thing about surveys that I’ve learned is apparently if you make people sign the document first before filling it out you are more likely to get honest and accurate information.

    So maybe offer people a choice to add their real email address or remain anonymous as an option and you can disseminate what you want from that.
