ColdFusion User Survey

Adobe is running a ColdFusion User survey to understand various aspects related to ColdFusion such as product satisfaction, product usage, platform usage, purchase process, access to training resources and issues related to hiring CF developers. Adobe is working with a third party research organization to host and analyze the results from this survey.

Survey will approximately take 20 mins of your time, but the detail in the survey may provide valuable insights into making the product, that you care for, so much better and relevant.

Here is the link for the survey. The survey will be available for the next couple of weeks. Any assistance in promoting the survey link on social media or within your organizations will help!

It stopped there and did not allow me to continue on the question. I am using my iphone to complete at the time. I can try it again. Just want to give feedback so you guys can have better inputs from the user group.

@Oli: what is the issue that you are facing with the question on “what is the version of OS used on production?”. Is the survey not proceeding to the next question? Is it not letting you provide an option?

@Andrew: I agree that the sliders are a huge pain point. It is not intuitive. I have passed the feedback to the third party research organization that we work with. Something for us to ensure that it does not happen in our future surveys.

@Mard: The intent of the question is to understand the importance of CF within the organization. If Adobe were not committed to CF, we would even have released a new version of the product, released subsequent updates and even have this survey going.

@Henry: Agree with you the sliders are badly designed.

@Christopher: I will get that question corrected.

“Do you have face challenges in any of the following:” ???

The slider form isn’t broken, it’s just badly designed. You need to select a value for each slider, or it won’t let you pass by. If you’ve left any on your 50% default position it won’t get past it. Just tap click on it and you’ll be fine – should be clearer, but is a problem with third party survey provider really.

Sound like Adobe is closing CF Team. They ask if we still committed to CF and if there are new projects. That clearly means they do not believe in CF and think it is outdated and nobody use it any longer and only old customers exists plus they are moving away. Looks like Adobe don’t see a future for their own product.

Sure that may happens if you don’t have any marketing in Europe region.

Must say I have to agree with the others here, whatever that survey tool was, it is about the worst I have ever used.

Particularly liked the “sliders” from 1 to 100 that are not even sliders and agree with Scott that it needs options for “not applicable” like most other surveys I’ve done elsewhere have.

Also @Rakshith, that’s a pretty unprofessional response to Andrew Scott. He might not have been particularly complimentary but he was clearly frustrated at the poor quality of the surveying tool. You should have offered assistants to him, not publicly berate him for his comment.

I can’t continue in the middle of survey after finishing more than 25% on the question “what is the version of OS used on production?”

Please help to rectify this. It’s a shame I cannot complete this. Really want to give Adobe the inputs on this. Why not build the survey using Coldfusion itself?

Even though it appears the sliders are starting out at the lowest marking, they are actually starting at zero and you have to move them at least 1 notch forward to give it the lowest mark and move forward. Functionally it works fine, it’s just not so obvious.

@Andrew: I had the same problem. I discovered I had to move all the sliders even if I was happy with its original position in the middle of the bar

@Scott: I agree. Looks like we missed that. I will check if we can include that.

@Rick: Adobe engages with ColdFusion UGs to ensure that they remain active by providing assistance. During this last one year of the initiative, we have an increase in the number of active ColdFusion UGs.

@Andrew: Unless you are more specific about the issue you are facing, it won’t help rectify the problem and you can continue to make comments that help none.

lol, don’t know about anyone else but there is apparently a hidden option around the 75% mark that stops me from completing it.

Just like their coding, Adobe can’t even get a survey right!

So exactly what is the Adobe user group ColdFusion initiative?
I run a CFUG and have never heard of it?

The survey needs more options in some of the fields, including a “I don’t know” or “I’m not involved”, such as how often security patches are applied, what factors influence if you upgrade, what specific version of the OS you’re running, etc.
