In the new record enter the following fields:

  • Name (Required): This is the name of the Survey Question record (will only be seen in CRM).
  • Category: Categories can be used to put your questions in different groups in order to find them more easily if you have a lot of questions. When you’re looking for the questions in the Survey Questions area you can use that field to search on or filter by.
  • Question (Required): The question text that will appear in the actual survey.
  • Type (Required): Choose a type of question; You can choose from the following:
    • Rating (1-10) – Lets the user rate something from one to ten.
    • Radio – Creates options with circles next to them; Gives the user multiple choices and lets them only choose one.
    • Checkbox – Creates options with check boxes next to them; Gives the user multiple choices and lets them choose as many as they like.
    • Text Area – Lets the user enter in multiple lines of text
    • Text Box – Lets the user enter in a small amount of text
    • List – Creates a drop down list; users can only select one option of many
  • Options: If you select Radio, Checkbox, or List as your Question Type, you can enter in the answer choices in the options box. Simply hit “Enter” in between each choice.
  • Include ‘Other’ Option: If you select Radio as your Question Type, you can toggle this to Yes or No. If you toggle this to Yes, you can include an Other Option Label to personalize this label within the Survey.  A blank field will appear as a possible other answer choice on the actual survey, the customer can fill in this blank field and submit his or her own answer value.
