view answers by user responding to poll

Short, concise description of the idea
add links in poll results to view a given user's answers to all the poll questions

Full description of the idea
currently the only way to see how a user answered a poll is to click on "view answers" for each question and find that user's name on each one. i would like to be able to click on a user's name in the poll responses and come up with a page listing each question and what that user answered. along with getting all answers to a question, i'd like to be able to see all answers given by a user.

An ordered list of benefits

  • it's much easier if you're inputting poll data into a stats program to enter all data for a respondent, instead of all responses to a question.
  • it's another interesting way to look at poll responses
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • i'm not sure where the "view user's answers to all questions" link would go
  • it might end up being difficult to code
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • first suggestion: add a link in the poll results that says "view all users responding to this poll". that link would give you a page listing the users, with a "view this user's answers" link after each name.
  • second suggestion: in the normal "view answers" page, put a "view this user's answers" link in parentheses after the username and before the answer.
