Share Your Questionnaire
This feature is included in all plans.
You've written your questionnaire, but what good is it if no-one can answer it?! Now it's time to learn how to share it!
This guide will give a general overview about all the options offered on the Share screen:
- Share questionnaire link
- Share restrictions
- Share questionnaire by embedding it
- Share questionnaire by email
- Share questionnaire on paper
First let's log in. If you're on the home page, click on the Share icon, or go to the Share tab on the top menu when you're in the questionnaire editor.
Now we'll work through the different options available to you as you scroll down the page.
1 Share questionnaire link
Share questionnaire link gives you the options to copy a Link or QR code.
1.1 Share questionnaire link
Link and Short link are both links to your survey. Click on the Copy button at the end of the line to copy the link to anywhere you want to start distributing.
Tip: The Short link gives you a link that is shorter and faster to type, useful for times when the respondent has to type the link on their smartphone or tablet.
1.2 Share your questionnaire by QR code
Another way to distribute your questionnaire is by downloading the QR code, which you can then print out, put it on flyers, post it on social media or your website... or send it by snail mail!
Download the QR code by right-clicking on the image and select Save Image As...
2 Share restrictions
In the next set of options, Share restrictions, you can de-activate your questionnaire, set passwords and limit responses.
- Activate your questionnaire - When you have gathered enough responses, toggle the button to the left to de-activate it.
- Add a single password to your questionnaire to add an extra layer of security. Read more details about how to add passwords.
- Limit responses per device or per contact - Toggling these buttons to the right will limit the amount of times a respondent can take the questionnaire. Learn all about different ways to limit responses.
Another option available on request is to add a maximum number of responses allowed to your survey. For example, set a maximum of 100 responses and when 100 responses have been received, the survey will not be accessible. Note that this feature is not available in offline mode.
3 Share questionnaire by embedding it
Here you have two options for embedding your questionnaire on your website or social media pages - an IFrame which you can Copy to implement the questionnaire on your website, or copy the text from Embed script for better responsive results.
You'll find more details here about embedding a survey.
4 Share questionnaire by email
This feature is only available in the Professional and Enterprise plan.
Once you've added your contacts, you'll probably want to email them the survey. Click Send email invitations to create and schedule your email invitation.
