Setup & Introduction


After clicking “Create a survey” on the start page menu, you choose “Create a new survey”. The first step then is to name your survey in the new box that pops up. Survey name is an internal choice that is only shown in the administration interface and is therefore not seen by the respondent.

My Survey

All: Click here if you want to see the entire survey all together. Introduction, questions and end text are shown and you can easily manage the layout, spelling, and other details of the questions. Edit the texts and/or questions and answers directly by double clicking the selected subject. To save and display your changes, click “Save” or click “Cancel” to stop edit (and not save). To change the order of the questions, click on the selected question and drag and drop it to a new location.

Introduction: Here you are given the possibility to write an introduction text. The text will be the first thing the respondents see when they open the survey. This text can, for example, state the purpose of the survey or give special instructions to the respondents. If this field is left blank, the respondents will go directly to the survey questions. Click “Save” after adding the introduction/welcome text.

Tip! We recommend that you take this opportunity to give the respondents a better understanding of the purpose of their participation and of what the results of the survey will be used for.

1 (different numbers): Indicates how many questions the survey contains of. At first, all surveys contain of only one question but you can easily add a new question by clicking the plus sign.

End text: Under this tab it is possible to enter a text that your respondents will see when they are finished with the survey. We recommend that you always write a closing text to thank the respondent for having taken the time to answer your survey together with other information you might wish to communicate.

You can at all times click the preferences_16 icon for a preview of the survey. Depending on which tab you are standing on, that will be what you are previewing. For example, if you want to go through the whole survey, from introduction to end, first make sure you are currently on the “All” tab.
