We are please to announce that we have updated our Theme Editor. It now allows you even better to customize your questionnaire layout according to your needs.
The way you can add your own logo to your survey layout has also been improved.
You can now also set a “Default survey design” to be used automatically for any new surveys. This can be done within your “Default Survey Settings”.
You can now also share your own themes with your team members, and vice versa. Your team member’s layouts will automatically appear within the Theme Editor, where you can preview and apply them to your surveys.
You can now restrict access to your online survey with access codes. This will guarantee that only people with a valid access code can participate in your survey. This is similar to a password protected online survey, only that every participant uses their own personal password.
Simply create a new collector of type “Access Code” and generate random access codes. You can then share those access codes with your participants.
Every access code can only be used once to participate in your survey. An ideal use case is voting, where every person should only be allowed to vote once.
We are happy to announce that you can now create multiple tabulated reports for every given survey:
Any filters you set or chart types that you define will remain set for each report. This allows you to create multiple reports with specific settings each, and to view them without having to reset your main report every single time to different states.
One particular use case that we have been asked often about is the ability to create a “Management Report” or similar, that only contains results to specific questions and that can be shared with Management or other third parties in a safe way. This is now possible:
After you have created your custom report, you can simply click on “Share this report” to get a unique, read-only link to that report. You can share that link with anyone who needs access to this data.
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!
Up until now, we have been running two separate online survey platforms, namely eSurveyCreator and SurveyHero.
Today we are excited to announce that we have merged eSurveyCreator into SurveyHero. This will allow us to strengthen our brand and to prevent confusion.
If you have an eSurveyCreator account, then nothing will change for you, except that you and your survey participants will be redirected to surveyhero.com. All of your surveys, survey links, etc., that you may have already shared, will continue to work. You can also continue to share “old” survey links that use the domain esurveycreator.com.
Enterprise customers using a White Label solution will not be affected either. All survey links using a custom domain will continue to work unchanged.
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).
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.
One of the most common ways for you to share your survey is to use a survey link. You can use this link to share your survey in an email, on social media, etc. However, sometimes you may want to share your survey on printed media such as a poster or flyer. This is where QR codes come in handy.
QR codes are perfect for print media as they allow potential participants to get to your survey directly by quickly scanning the code, rather than having to read and manually input a long survey URL.
For every “Survey Link” collector you create, you can now also generate a QR code as an image file. You can then take this image and place it virtually anywhere. Here is an example:
Try it out, scan the code above with a QR scanner on your smartphone and you will be redirected to the corresponding survey.
