What you see is what you get

Simple editing of your HTML content

Quota management

Control your target group participation by quotas

Create as many quotas as you like for your survey participants so your participant group has the correct distribution. Example: You would like to question 500 women and 500 men having a certain age range.

 

Skip logic / branching

Set conditions for your questions based on previous answers

Filter subquestions based on previous Multiple Choice questions or skip questions based on answers to previous question. That way you can avoid non-relevant questions to your survey participants and keep them happy.

 

Reuse survey content

Copy questions, answers or complete surveys

You can easily copy existing questions, answer options, partial or whole surveys at your convenience. This will save you a lot of work when setting up big surveys.

 

Invite and remind
