New Chart Type: Word Cloud

Using open ended questions like the Text Field and Text Area are a great way for you to collect detailed responses. Closed question types will only tell you that X number of people selected answer A, whereas open question types will allow participants to write out an answer in their own words.

You will find the Word Cloud chart is now available in your report. This chart has been designed to pick out the most common words from your responses and display them in a word cloud diagram, where the more common the word the larger the text.

Since the responses will contain words written directly from the participant, some answers will contain completely different adjectives, verbs and nouns. The Word Cloud will filter out punctuation and unnecessary words (like a, it, the, etc.) to only display useful words.

We are always looking for new fun ways to display your response data and hope you like this addition to the report charts. You can change chart types in your report starting from the Professional Plan.

Create Complex Online Surveys with Skip Logic

We have just launched a very popular feature that many of you have been asking for. Skip Logic gives you the ability to skip certain pages based on what participants have previously answered.

Your survey should be as easy to complete as possible. Too many pages with questions that don’t relate to the participant can lead to more drop offs and incomplete results. With Skip Logic, if somebody already answers that they like cats, then you can skip the page asking them why they do not like cats and go directly to the next section.

This feature is available starting from the Business Plan and opens up many new ways that you can structure your survey. We are really looking forward to seeing in what ways you use it.

This feature is available starting from the Business Plan and can be a very useful way to get your online survey participants back onto your website.

New Question Type: Date

If you want to allow your participants to enter a date in your online survey, then the new “Date” question type is going to make your life a lot easier!

You could use a “Textfield” question to get dates, however, the problem here is that any value could be submitted and even if your participants entered a date, you would end up with many different formats in your survey results.

The “Date” question allows users to select a date from an actual calendar, giving you a consistent format in your results!

We hope you like this new feature. As always, we welcome any feedback you may have:
