When you are collecting open text answers from participants in an online survey, one problem you may run into is that there is no limit to the amount of text the participant can submit. This can become frustrating when you only really require a short answer from the participant and you end up getting a small essay.
Today we are happy to announce that you now can limit open text answers to a maximum number of characters.
When this option is active, the user will see a counter on the bottom right corner of the question. This will update live as the user types, providing some feedback to show how many characters are still available.
There are many organizations around the world who are doing amazing things to help others in need. We are very proud to announce that starting today, SurveyHero will be supporting charitable and nonprofit organizations, by offering use of our Business Plan to create beautiful online surveys for free!
You can find out more about what requirements are needed as well as how you can benefit from this offer here: Discount for Nonprofits
If you are part of, or know someone who is part of, a nonprofit organization then please get in touch with us. We would love to hear from you!
We are happy to announce that you can now add a “Summary Page” at the end of your online survey.
The answer summary page contains all the questions in your survey including the participants answers. This page allows your participants to review their own given answers as well as to save/print them before submitting.
Participants will be able to print or create a PDF export of a nicely formatted version of their answers. It will clearly display each question and show which answers they have given.
If the participant sees an answer they would like to change, they can simply go back and change it.
The world is a diverse place. We humans speak, in total, close to 7000 languages between us. Although many people can understand multiple languages, when it comes to reading text, it feels by far the most natural when it is in your first language.
Today, we are happy to announce our Multilingual Surveys feature! You can now create or translate one of your existing surveys into any language. We support “Unicode”, meaning you can use any language with any kind of special characters.
We have a fantastic built-in translation editor which really makes the translation of your survey not only super-fast to do, but also more accurate, because you can refer to the original text at a glance.
Participants can then choose their preferred language at the beginning of the questionnaire, or you can even create survey links that directly use a specific language.
All your collected responses will be in one place and you will also be able to filter the survey results by language.
Providing your survey in the participants first language will not only help with your response rate, but will also give you more accurate and detailed results. We believe that the ability to translate surveys will greatly help our users!
