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!
We have just launched an update that will allow you to change the default values in your exported survey responses. For example, by default, if a user selected answer “Yes”, you will find “Yes” in the Excel export. This update will allow you to override the exported value for closed question types. For example, you can override “Yes” to become “1” and “No” to become “0”, etc.
This allows you to format your exported data exactly how you need it. You can set up your custom export values even before you have collected any responses, meaning, when the responses do start to come in, your exported values are already the way you need them.
We are happy to include this feature for you and think it is yet another great step forward in allowing you to customize SurveyHero to suit your needs.
We are happy to announce that there is a new question type available for you to use in your online survey. The “Slider” question allows your participants to select a position between two poles (e.g. “Poor” vs “Great”) by simply moving the slider on a scale from whatever numeric range you define (e.g. -10 to 10, one step at a time).
The slider is fully responsive and works also great on mobile devices.
You will be able to see which positions your participants have selected in your survey results both within the tool and in your exports.
The Slider question is a classic online survey question and we are happy to now include it in the tool for you!
