A survey embed allows you to display a survey on your website. Users never have to be redirected!
With just a few lines of code, you can get started. These survey types are a great way to capture feedback and interact with your audience. Most often these are used for lead captures, to collect feedback for websites, and to conduct market research.
Example Survey Embeds
For these embeds you can customize the button text, color, and size. In addition, you can always add your own CSS to style the elements as you see fit. When these buttons are clicked on mobile, the form will display in full screen mode.
The survey will show inside a modal box. A button click can trigger the survey or it can be triggered automatically on page load.
This survey type will display a button on the bottom right hand of the screen. This is useful to get general feedback for a website.
Feedback Request Box:
This survey type will display a message box on screen. The box can be triggered on page load, after a delay, or even when the user goes to leave your website. The message box will ask if the user wants to take a survey. If the user clicks "No Thanks" or takes the survey, the message box will not show again. You can customize the message text and color scheme.
Standard Iframe Embed:
If you need to display a form right on your website you can use this type of embed. Generally, pop-ups will display and flow with your site better, but we give users the option. If you don’t want scrolling inside the iframe, you need to disable scroll in options. This means you would need to resize your iframe according to how long your form is. If a survey is completed, the page will reload and a message saying "thanks for the response" will be shown. If you select to allow multiple respondents per device, a new entry can be submitted each time the page is loaded, regardless if the user has already taken it.
Simply create your survey or form and then place some code on your site!
Various Embedded Options
|Automatic Pop Up||Applies to slide left, right, and center embeds. Survey will be automatically shown on page load.|
|Always Show||Applies to feedback button surveys. With this option selected, the "Feedback Button" will always show. With this option disabled, the button will only show prior to completing the survey. After the survey is complete, a single user to your website will never see the button again.|
|Anonymous Responses||Surveys will be labeled as anonymous to give respondents confidence that their answers cannot be tracked. For embedded surveys, this means hiding the IP address of the respondent.|
|Multiple Responses Per Device||With this option selected, a single device can take a survey as many times as they would like. Without this option selected (by default), a survey will be limited to one response per device. (Computer, tablet, phone, etc.)|
|Response Editing||With this option selected, if a respondent clicks a survey they have already taken, they can edit their responses and re-submit a new updated form.|
(Based on Responses)
|This will close the collector after a certain number of responses have been received.|
(Based on Date)
|This will close the collector on a certain date. You cannot accept new responses to a closed survey. You can re-open the survey at any time.|
|Disable Scrolling (Iframes)||This option will disable the scrollbar on your survey. This is used for iframes. The above example has the option in place. You would need to test out and set the height manually of your iframe to fit it all on one page without elements being hidden. We set the above example to about 1000px height. If this option is not selected, a scroll bar would appear next to the content; the iframe height would not need to be adjusted to fit all content as the user could scroll to reach the bottom.|
