Settings Menu - Survey texts.png


Survey title

The title of the survey can be changed in this field.


Description

You can add a survey description.


End URL

You have the ability to redirect users to another page when they complete the survey. If you wish to redirect them, type in the URL and activate the automatically load URL option that is located under the Presentation & navigation tab.

You can construct your url, see details on the way to do.

URL description

A short end URL description can be added in the case the user is redirected to a non-related survey webpage. It may help the survey administrator to add notes vis-à-vis the usage of the respective URL.

Date format

This option is important when you want to record timestamps together with the survey participants' answers. If you click it, a drop-down list with a number of date formats will be displayed. Choose the one that fits your survey participants. Do not forget that different date formats are used across the world. For example, it is recommended to use a different time format if your survey focuses on the US market (mm-dd-yyyy) and not on the British market (dd-mm-yy).

Decimal mark

Two options are available: dot (.) and comma (,). Choose the one that fits the place where you conduct your study (e.g, US vs Germany).


Welcome message

Type in a message that will welcome the survey participants when they access your survey link.


End message

Type in a message that will be displayed to the survey participants when they complete the survey. If the end URL field is automatically loaded, the end message will no longer be displayed.

Help.png Hint: If enabled from the global settings, use the HTML editor to better customize the welcome and end messages, and the description of the survey.
If your survey is multilingual, each language will have a corresponding tab on the languages toolbar (they will be displayed after the base language).
