Step 1. Choose a survey type and start survey creation

In the main dashboard, click on the Create new survey button.

Decide how you'd like to distribute the survey. Select the survey type you need and click Continue.

You can find a brief description of our survey types below.

❗️Please note it's not possible to change the survey type once it's created.

Selecting a survey from the templates library is great if you're looking for survey inspiration. Suppose 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.

You can also click on Templates Library at the top of your dashboard and select the survey type and template:

Step 3. Add questions and design survey experience

If you decide to create a survey from scratch, you can add all questions via Add new question or Add question from library button.

Type in your questions, answers, and introduction.

💡 To make adding questions even easier and faster, start typing a question, and you'll find a list of suggestions to choose from. This way, you can use one of the hundreds of questions in four languages we prepared in your survey:

You can change the order of questions by dragging them into another spot or duplicate and remove them after choosing the three dots icon:
