MUST WATCH: This tutorial runs through the different ways of creating, scanning and processing forms from start to finish.
This is a short tutorial on how to create a key field reconciles publication. These publications are used when you are not able to publish a form identifying the form recipient before you hand the form out. Some cases where you would use this type of publication is where a student would bubble in their student ID or where a patient barcode sticker may be placed on a form to identify a patient.
This tutorial describes the process of creating a single page anonymous form using the Key Field Reconciles publication method and a multi-page anonymous form using the Form ID Reconciles publication method.
This tutorial explains how to reprocess a scanned image that was not correctly identified and ended up in Processing Queue -> Unidentified Images.
This video quickly explains how to manually select a publication a scanned image belongs to when FormReturn isn't able to locate the Form ID barcode on a scanned image.
This tutorial video describes the basic process of reprocessing forms that have errors or incorrectly detected answers. It is part of the data cleansing stage after you have scanned your forms into the program.
This is an advanced tutorial video describing how to connect to the FormReturn database via JDBC. Firstly, it describes how to import records from a JDBC data source to import data into the source data table. Secondly, it shows how to connect to the FormReturn database via JDBC and SquirrelSQL.
This video describes the difference between Form ID and Key Field Reconciles publications. Be aware that this video makes reference to Key Field Reconciles publications as "OMR ID reconciliation". More recent versions of the program now refer to OMR ID as Key Field Reconciles. Newer versions have also extended key field reconciliation to include barcode reader areas which work in a similar fashion to a bubble grid.
