This article will guide you through creating your first survey. Read on if you'd like to know the difference between ready-to-use templates and creating a survey of your own. You'll also get to find out about the different types of surveys.

Step 1: To add a survey, log in to your Survicate account. If you haven't created your account yet, sign up here.

Step 2: While in the main dashboard, click on Create new survey button:

Step 3: Decide how you'd like to distribute the survey. Below are the available options along with a brief description of each:

  • Email or shareable link survey: Get shareable surveys links or embed surveys directly inside emails.

  • Website or web app surveys: Run targeted surveys on websites or inside web apps.

  • Mobile app surveys: Collect feedback from mobile app users inside iOS or Android apps.

  • Intercom Messenger surveys: Survey users directly in the Intercom Messenger.

Step 4: Pick how you'd like to continue creating this survey. There are two options to choose from. You can either 1️⃣ set up a survey of your own (start from scratch) or 2️⃣ select a survey from our templates library (start from template).

Selecting a survey from the templates library is great if you're on the lookout for survey inspiration. If you're still a bit unsure as to who to survey and which questions to ask, feel free to choose from a wealth of templates we provide.
