Can I use Survey Anyplace in offline mode?

Yes, this is a big advantage when the quality of the WIFI is not guaranteed or when you can’t connect to a 3G or 4G network. 90% of our features work in offline mode. Collect responses offline throughout the day, and the data will automatically be uploaded to the servers when the device connects to the WIFI or 3G/4G network later on.

The only features that are not supported in offline mode are the usage of YouTube movies, and MP4 files (movies), and the ability to work with the Facebook features as these require an online connection with Facebook.

Offline mode

The offline survey tool is perfect for conducting a survey at an event, in restaurants and shops, or if you want to conduct street interviews or surveys. While the offline survey tool offers all the convenience of an online survey, it still works when your internet connection is unstable or even if there's no WIFI connection at all.

In just a few clicks, our offline survey tool will help you to:

  • Come up with an entertaining format that you can style with tons of design templates.
  • Create engaging surveys that, in return, get higher response rates.
  • Share questionnaires that are accessible online and offline. (Collect responses at the moment, sync your data later!)

You may be wondering...

Can I buy Survey Anyplace for a one-off event?

Yes, you certainly can. When you purchase an Essential or Professional license, you obtain the right to use the license for a period of one month. Downgrade to a free license within this period of one month, and the payments will automatically stop. Your paid license will remain valid till the renewal date. Be aware that with the free license, you will only be able to see 20 responses on the results pages.

What features should I know about to use Survey Anyplace successfully at the event?

Kiosk mode

When you don't have the time or staff to operate your survey devices, such as a tablet, you can leave the tablet in kiosk mode at your event. Given that the questionnaire can automatically return to the Intro Screen, no staff is required. You might want to consider the following features when you leave your questionnaire unmanned: Automatic Back to Start, Idle timeout, and Save on Exit.

Put an iPad in kiosk mode

A “kiosk” device is a computer or tablet that’s restricted to a single specific app. For small business owners, an iPad can be a great cost-effective solution to take advantage of kiosk devices. Read our how-to guide to learn how to set up the iPad and put it into kiosk mode.


You can use Survey Anyplace for voting sessions. Simply invite your respondents for your voting session by sending them an email or a text message, or ask them to enter the link when you present it on a presentation screen. Let the respondents enter their vote. Present the results on the presentation screen in real-time and use our application in presentation mode to include your logo. Use our automatic refresh feature to update incoming results.
Do you want to organize several voting sessions and eventually survey the participants of your event? You can do this with one app: use our Campaign and Respondent Portal (these are extra features on top of our Enterprise Plan) features. More info about Campaigns.


When you take a quiz or test, it’s always fun to compare your results with others. This way, you can see how well you’ve really done. Use our leaderboard feature to show everyone's results. A leaderboard is a screen that you can choose to display at the beginning or end of the quiz or test showing everyone's scores.
