Drum roll please!
We took our time – we know.
We teased about it for quite a while – we know.
And now we are so happy to finally announce all the changes that have been made in our tool. The first place where you’ll see the new look is in your own surveys and quizzes…
So now it’s time you should know as well!
The transfer from old to new will take place on February 24th.
For a short summary of all the changes: scroll down to the end of this blogpost.
What can you you expect from the shiny brand new Survey Anyplace app?
A slick, modern design for all your surveys and quizzes!
The most important change is the new layout for all your current surveys.
That’s right, this new design will be applied for all newly created quizzes and surveys – but all existing ones will also be renewed.
We won’t mess up your color scheme, or any of the content you worked so hard on, don’t worry. It’ll look brighter, clearer and will be easier to use by your respondents. We’ll have everyone looking fresh by February 24th.
(The only exception for the new design is for those of you who have created surveys with custom css in the past. Your projects will remain untouched!)
When you start creating new surveys, or want to edit the existing ones, you get a lot to play with:
Choose from a range of 15 brand new design templates for a quick start to a fun-looking survey or quiz. Adapt the placement of the lay out based on your needs: Centered, Left or Compact. The compact layout is also the standard format for your surveys on mobile devices.We realized that, when you put a lot of effort in how your content sounds, the image should fit the message. So we’ve said our goodbyes to our trusted font and added 13 different fonts for you to go crazy with. Adapt font size and text color to your liking.
In fact, we’re embracing the term ‘color’ entirely! That’s why you can now work with advanced color options that allow you to change: background color, card background color, link color, button color, …
Awesome features like our color detector are still there.
So if you feel like taking it easy, upload your logo and let the color detector style the template with your own trusted colors. Upload – Click – Done!

But there’s more.
A brand new interactive widget!
We take ‘entertaining surveys’ very seriously.
After the success of our popular scratch card, we decided it was time for an addition to the widget-family.
Meet our ‘Slot Machine’!
Perfect to incentivize your respondents in a playful, different way.
A web app with an interface that gets you
Following a clean design, we wanted to clean up the navigation and structure of our web app too. Call it a fresh start!
You’ll find your way around more easily now that all navigation has been included in a single left sidebar (including logout and account settings).
Next to us shuffling up the buttons, you’ll get easier access to our brand new, expanded, super useful help guides!
The text editor within questions is a lot more user friendly and you’ll be glad to learn that it’s now super easy to add other languages and translations to your quizzes and surveys.
Oh and we’ve made the app a bit faster too, now that you’ll be flying through those surveys!
We know new beginnings can be hard.
