OptimalSort lost the server but preserved the user data

17 February 2015 | Optimal Workshop

OptimalSort is a card-sorting tool. I got an email from the company behind the tool: "…if you’d be interested in taking an OptimalSort survey to help us create a meaningful taxonomy for our blog content." Yes. I was. So I went for the survey.

It took me a while to complete the sorting. When I tried to submit, I got a 404 error message:

There’s been a problem:

couldn’t reach the server: 404

You can try closing this popup and submitting your sort again, or you can copy the text from the box below and email it to support@optimalworkshop.com.

I was delighted to see that my data is there in the popup. Excellent design!
