I like the presence of a streamlined UI and bulk operations in the survey. All this will help us to enter data faster, work with RW more efficiently and getting more done in less time. So I believe that this would be a good corner stone to put some priorities on.

For important additional features, I am sure every group has it's own needs, therefore it is difficult to lobby for something Anyways just for your information I put some prios beside the issues above, on import/export , printing, relationship diagramming, simplify & streamline interface, bulk operations.

A lot of critical topics are in the survey, so I'm excited what the results will be

I put this in the survey, but I want to say it here, too. Whenever I've recommended Realm Works to other gamers, someone invariably brings up the fact that it's a closed product. Once your data goes in, it never comes out.

My personal experience in recommending your product has been that this has been the single most common criticism, and has kept you off the radar of many potential customers.

I was asleep, and then busy filling in the survey...

Having said that, calendars, journals, print, export. Please, folks! These things are so important to making RW everything it can be.

Not really lobbying, but critique on the survey (and I mean it in the correction for next time sense, not in the hate you sense...)
Users can rarely give good results on a 1-10 scale, especially when its a one off answer, with no corrections (i.e. question 35 in the survey is the opposite of question 1 and the answers are compared). I think in the case of the major features a 1-18 grade should have been used with every grade appearing only once. So each user needs to decide on the absolute order in which he wants things to be implemented.

I agree - custom calendars.

There are many awesome things besides custom calendars, but those can wait for after the custom calendars.

Custom Calendars

The inability to create my own custom calendars is the single biggest block to my making full use of the tool. Having to manually convert dates from Gregorian to my campaign's calendar is a major pain point. There are many other features that I would welcome, but nothing impacts my enjoyment and use of the product as much as the lack of custom calendars.

We planned to do that originally. Unfortunately, the survey tools available are really clunky when you have that many different options to rank. So we had to go back and revise our approach. The 1-10 scale was the only approach that worked well within the survey tools and would give good results. We only need to identify the top few items for now.

FYI, Tried utilizing the survey at the airport as I waited on flight home, It is NOT user friendly on an Iphone.... the format does some unusual wrapping with the text versus the "check dot" about a third of the way threw I simply gave up. I revisited it this morning on my desktop machine.. SOOOOOO MUCH BETTER....
