It is extremely important that you display your survey to the right people. The better you segment your visitors the higher your response rate can be. It's worth targeting each survey at only those of your visitors who are likely to contribute meaningfully. You can use targeting for a number of reasons:
- Inquire about a certain page on your website,
- Identify why your visitors are bouncing and not converting.
- Target your surveys after certain actions on your website.
- Target your surveys only to a group of users depending on their attributes, cookies, language, and many more.
- Trigger your surveys on a specific frequency to ensure continuous feedback.
To set up these conditions, go to Edit > Target section of your survey

Show the survey again, but during the next visit to the website: The visitor will see the survey once when the targeting conditions match. If your visitor moves on to another page without closing or responding to the survey, it will disappear, and only appear when the user enters your website again.
Continue showing the survey until the user responds or closes it: Visitor will see the survey when the targeting conditions match, once they move on to another page the survey will be visible again until the visitor responds to the survey, or closes the survey.
Never show the survey again: Visitor will see the survey once when the targeting conditions match, if they move to another page, respond or close the survey, they will not see it again.
If your visitor has responded to the survey, you can either choose to never show the survey again, or set up a recurring survey condition to let your visitor be able to retake the same survey at specific frequencies; instantly, daily, monthly, weekly, or quarterly.
