    Maybe "web design" would be more appropriate than UI/UX.

      Having both could have equally worked as effective.

      I think the differentiation we were going for (and we could be wrong) was Web/Mobile Applications vs Marketing Sites (forward-facing design). Thanks for the heads up though Duncan!

        Ah, well I mostly design what you'd probably consider marketing sites, and to a lesser degree web and mobile apps as well – so I just selected UI/UX.

        Not sure if that was what you were looking for!

        ^_^

    That is one useless form. What exactly are you working on and what information do you need?

      Pretty quick to judge there buddy. It's a good enough form to prioritise integrations and estimate projects per plan and types of users.

        Alright, tell me, what could you conclude from the answers to this form?

          Pretty sure someone from Slingshot can give you a better answer, but here's what you could conclude

          1. Types of pricing plans as per user type
          2. Number of projects per plan
          3. Duration of plans
          4. Number of users per plan
          5. Order of implementing integrations
          6. Order of implementing types of file support

          If I need to explain any of these then your initial statement is moot.

            What, you would base your user plans on whether someone specialises in Hand lettering and you would give them a special deal if they get a new project every 3-7 days and would prefer to be billed that way? Slingshot (whoever they are) will end up with the same pricing plan every single company out there has: monthly billing and a reduced rate if you pay for a year in advance?

            What do you do about the people who answer 'other' to what they use to manage projects?

            These are technicalities however, the reason I said this form is useless is because it doesn't provide any info about the product so it is not targeting people who might be interested in this and thus relevant to the project.

              Hello Christian, good points about 'useless'. The product is called 'Slingshot' and our product is live over at www.useslingshot.com. I'm being very careful not to promote here on Designer News yet as we are still in closed beta. So for now we are just wanting to get basic info as we are nearing the end of the beta and are now going forward with pricing models, scalability, etc. The data we obtained from the survey was incredibly helpful. But yes, as you said - we were being vague. It was all intentional. Thanks for the good feedback and check out the site when you get some time.

            Thanks Sanja - exactly what we are looking for. The data definitely is broad but we didn't want potential 'users' spending 15 minutes on the form, so instead we tried to get as much information as possible (even if broad), in 60 seconds. Thanks for clarifying for Cristian!

      Ha, we definitely were looking for a target demographic for our application, and yes we were being intentionally vague and broad as to capture as much general information as possible. We had 300+ responses so I think a great number of people understood what we were trying to accomplish.
