When you’re sending out a survey or quiz, you’ll want to give your respondents a bit of information before they start. You can do this in the Intro Screen. Tell your respondents what the survey/quiz is about, what the results will be used for, which prize they can win, or just welcome your respondents and tell them ho much time the survey/quiz will ask from them. Describing the context (and especially announcing a prize) increases engagement (they know what they’re participating in).
1 Setting the Intro Screen
- Visible/Hidden switch: Feel like there’s no need for an Intro Screen or custom fields? Hide the Intro Screen and jump to your survey questions immediately.
- Text: Insert your heading and text and change the layout as you please. You’ll find more information about the rich text editor icons below.
- Custom Fields: The first fields your respondent has to fill in. You can filter on them later on. By using the buttons next to the custom fields you can make them mandatory for the respondent. More information below.
- Start Button: The button which leads to the questions of the survey. You can change the text as you please, e.g.: Let’s begin, let’s go, …
2 Rich text editor icons
- These three buttons are the standard buttons to make the text you selected bold and italic and to underline that part of the text.
- These two buttons are to specify your layout. The first button indicates the size of the text. The second button lets you choose a color for your text. You can choose both a background color (this is the color behind the text) and a foreground color (the color of the text itself).
- These two buttons are meant to arrange positioning and spacing. The first button is used to position your text (left, centered or right). The second button is used to regulate spacing between two lines of text.
- If you select a part of the text, you can enter a link on the text by using this button.
- The first button, the eraser, is used to erase the former layout of a text. You use this when you have copied your text from another document. The second button is used to work in the html code of the text. The last button is to work in full screen.
- You enter your text here.
3 Custom fields
Custom fields are a special type of question. These questions will appear on the Intro Screen and are mostly used to collect demographic data such as name, email, job title,… Using a Custom Field has four advantages over other question types:
- If you look at Results By Respondents, you get a clear overview of the respondents WITH their answers on the Custom Field
- You can use Custom Fields in the URL for respondent management. More information about this here
- You can use URL parameters to append information in the Custom Fields.
- You can filter on these responses later on.
