If you decide that you want to use the logo colors, click Detect colors to automatically detect the colors from the logo you've uploaded. A box will pop-up displaying the detected colors and asking if you'd like to use those colors. Click Yes, please, if you're happy to use those colors in your design. If you're not sure about the colors, click No, thanks, for now.

If you decide later that actually you do want to use the logo colors, click Detect colors to automatically detect the colors from the logo you've uploaded.

Make the most of the useful design features that Survey Anyplace has to offer! Designing your survey with the respondent in mind, making sure it is clear to read, intuitive, and user-friendly will help to boost the response rate!

Here are some tips to help you design your survey optimally. For an in-depth explanation of each Design feature, read the detailed design guide.

  • Layout – you can choose from a left-aligned layout, centered or compact. Make sure you preview your layout on both desktop and mobile devices to make sure your design looks good on both. Just click on the drop-down menu underneath the little preview screen.
  • Text – you want your respondents to be able to read your text with ease. Take care to choose a font that is clear and colors that will show up against your chosen background.
  • Button color – make sure that the button color ties into your color scheme and that the link text color you've chosen will show up both against the background color and the link button color.
  • Progress bar – consider including a progress bar, especially in longer surveys, to inform respondents roughly how long the survey will take to complete and motivate them to keep going. Respondents who have already answered a few questions but don’t know how much more is going to be asked of them may just decide to drop-out.

That's all for our quick start Design guide!
