We are happy to announce that you can now embed media into your surveys. You can for example add an audio clip from SoundCloud or a add a video from YouTube, etc. This is especially useful when you need your participants to e.g. watch a video before answering questions. Your participants do not need to leave your survey, which could lead to a higher drop-off rate. They can now simply watch the video directly in your questionnaire.
Videos, audio, and anything else that can be loaded in as an “iframe” can be embedded into your survey directly next to other content.
There are many organizations around the world that are doing amazing things to help others in need. We are very proud to announce that we will be supporting charitable and non-profit organizations by offering a discount of 50% OFF our premium plans.
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 not-for-profit organization then please get in touch with us. We would love to hear from you!
In order to support educational institutions, we are happy to announce that we have now launched our Educational Discount program. Both students and faculty members, such as educators and university staff and their members, can now benefit from a discount of 50% OFF our paid plans (with the exception of the Enterprise Plan).
A while ago, we launched the ability for you to receive survey event notifications, such as receiving a new survey response, using Webhooks via our API.
We have just launched an update called Global Webhooks. These are Webhooks that can be created on an “account level”, meaning that all your surveys will be triggering the same set of webhooks automatically.
We want your surveys to be as inclusive as possible and that is why we have recently launched some updates to make your surveys more accessible for participants who may have disabilities and may require third-party screen readers or rely heavily on keyboard navigation.
By reviewing the structure of our surveys and improving the underlying HTML tags following the WAI-ARIA specification, we have made dramatic improvements to the way screen readers interact with the survey content. We also reviewed how accessible each question type was when being answered by only using the keyboard.
Click on the screen recording below to see a survey which was controlled only with the keyboard:
It is possible to fully participate in our survey only using the keyboard. Every item is read aloud by screen readers, allowing people with impaired vision to complete it as well.
We are always looking for ways to improve the accessibility of our online surveys. If you, or your participants, have any feedback, or have faced some problems related to accessibility, then please let us know.
When you create your survey in multiple languages, a language selection page will be shown at the start of your survey. If you wanted to make a specific link always show a specific language, then you would have to set this in the link settings. You could then create multiple collectors, one per language.
We just launched a new update that makes this a little more flexible. Under your survey link, you will find a list of “Direct Language Links”.
These are the same as your survey link, except that they have a language code already appended to the URL. Anyone who visits a direct language link will be shown the relevant language directly. This means that you do not have to create one collector per language if you do not need to anyway.
We are always looking to make the tool more flexible. If you have some feedback about this or something else, then we would love to hear from you!
On each text field of your form questions, you can now specify which kind of answer should be given. If you have a field in your form that specifically asks for an email address, then you can set the “input type” of that field to be “email”.
We will then make sure only email addresses can be submitted from that field. The same can be set for fields where you would only like numbers to be entered.
Currently, you can restrict inputs to “email” or “number”. By default, there is no restriction and your participants can enter any values.
If you have some feedback or some of your own use cases, which would require additional input restriction types, please let us know!
You can now “pin” an answer option or a table row to the beginning or the end of the list. This is especially useful when you have applied a sorting order such as “random” to your question, but want a specific option to stay at the top or bottom.
When a choice is “pinned”, it will not be included in the applied sorting order. It will always stay in the same position. You will be able to pin choices/rows on many question types including Drop-Down lists, Multiple Choice Tables, and more. How it works is explained here: Answer Pinning
It is small features like this that help make the tool better, and best of all, it was added due to great feedback from our users. If you have some feedback of your own, please let us know!
Translating your survey into multiple languages can take a lot of time, especially on a survey with many questions. We have just launched a new feature in the tool that will allow you to automatically translate your online survey content.
With the click of a button, any content in your survey language, which has not yet been translated, will be automatically translated by Google Translate, one of the most widely used translators on the web.
As you may know, automatic translations are not perfect, so it is recommended that you review the translations once they have been made. If you are allowing external translators access to translate your survey, then they will also be able to auto-translate the content.
We feel that this is a great way to speed up the translation process for you and hope you find it to be a useful addition to the tool.
