Recent versions of a survey are kept, creating a new survey each time one is saved. You may revert to an earlier version, or view it, and copy the content you want into the latest version.

Shared Multiple Choice Answer Sets

You can modify the answers by re-ordering, changing or removing options to create answer sets that become available to all questions in your survey.

Branching, Skipping, Piping and Quotas

  • Branching: The control of available questions presented to a survey participant based on their responses to previous questions. Participants may loop through a series of questions, answering them again and again, for different items that they’ve previously selected.
  • Piping enables the questions to include the names of items selected by the participant in previous questions. Complex, but powerful.
  • Quotas enable survey owners to quit the survey once a quota has been reached.


  • Create, delete, edit, move, rename. Drag to reorder.

Styles and Messages

  • Although surveys default to a U of S theme, you are free to change it using the survey theme.
  • Change fonts, sizes, colours, logos, banners, backgrounds, etc. Modifications may be applied to a prepared theme.
  • Copy the CSS from an existing website and insert your survey into the middle.
  • Modify the text for most of the standard responses, such as the "Thank You" page, the "Quota Reached".
  • Modify the text displayed on buttons.


Ensures that the participant is only able to enter valid responses to the questions using validation. Simple items like number limits (e.g. "Please enter a number between 10 and 50") are addressed, but other typical field types are also possible such as email addresses, phone numbers, postal codes (US and Canadian).

International Languages

Enable other languages for your survey. With a simple addition to the URL, you can send different language versions of your survey to different groups that participants can switch back and forth between. If you have created your own set of answers to multiple choice questions, then you are able to create a different answer set for each enabled language.

This translation is not done automatically. You need to create each language version yourself.

Publishing & Access

Surveys publish to a URL based on the name of the survey. If you wish, you can customize this URL (within limits) to be shorter or simpler, or a small survey can be embedded within a webpage.

Polls are small surveys which can be standalone or embedded. Polls are often used to present participants with a running total of responses to date.

There are a variety of ways to control access to published surveys:

  • Email invite (one survey per invite code)
  • IP address (one survey per household)
  • Computer (cookie)

Surveys may also be limited by:

  • Turning off after quota reached
  • Turning on/off based on date and time restrictions
