Available thank you screen actions:

Here's a detailed breakdown of the available actions:

  • Disabled: Your respondents will see the thank you message you've written for them, without any further actions.

  • Page redirect: Let your respondents know you'd route them to an external page and then redirect them.

  • Button: Include a CTA button in your survey, and redirect them to the location after they click on this button.

  • Social buttons: Get respondents to become your Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn followers.

💡Tip: You can route your respondent to a specific question, or action based on their response. As an example, if someone's a promoter (gives a response of 9-10 to your NPS survey), you could route them to an external page where they would be able to submit a positive review for your business, and if they are a detractor (gives a response of 0-6), you can ask them a text question for further insights. See our article to learn how to set up survey logic.
