In the Configure tab, you can modify settings responsible for identifying the respondents and survey status.

Here's what you can achieve:

  • enable or disable your survey;

  • choose the tool to identify respondents with;

  • set up survey retaking;

  • select the trigger to disable the survey automatically.

This article shows how to customize survey settings. If you want to learn first how to create and design the survey, please navigate to the previous sections.

Step 1. Choose your survey provider

If you send your surveys via one of the supported distribution providers, we will automatically capture respondents' email addresses and full names using software-aware links. You'll get to know what was the response each person gave!

Move to the Configure tab and choose the tool from the dropdown list to automatically identify your respondents. Select the email provider you are going to send your surveys with.

❗️If you need your responses to be anonymous, you can skip this step.

Currently, we support sending surveys with:
Intercom, Mailchimp, Hubspot, Klaviyo, Calendly, ActiveCampaign, Sendgrid, Salesforce, Salesforce Marketing Cloud, Marketo, Salesforce Marketing Cloud Account Engagement (Pardot), Zendesk, Sharpspring, Drip, Keap, Convertkit, Freshsales, ConstantContact, GetResponse, Ortto,, Mailgun, iPresso, Campaign Monitor, Help Scout, ZohoCampaigns, Vero, Drift, Braze, Bronto, SALESmanago,

Click on your tool above to learn more about sharing surveys with this software.

💡 You might still be able to identify your respondents even if your distribution provider is not on the list. Learn more about that in this article.

Step 2. Enable survey retaking

By default, your respondents will be able to answer the survey only once from the same browser. If you want to collect more insights from the same person, you can enable survey retaking with the Allow this survey to be taken multiple times from the same browser option.

You can also use kiosk mode by enabling the Refresh the survey after completion option. Once enabled, the survey will restart as soon as it's finished.

If this setting is disabled, we will show You have already responded to this survey message to the users who have already completed the survey.

💡If you want to test your survey multiple times, you can enable the Refresh the survey after completion option or do one of the following:

  • clear your browser cache,

  • test on another device

  • use incognito mode of a browser

    Make sure to close the incognito window every time you submit a new response.

Step 3. Activate your survey

Under your survey's status, you can enable or disable your survey. Once disabled, your survey will stop collecting further responses, and we will display This survey is currently unavailable message when someone visits the survey URL.

❗️Please, note that if the respondent opens the survey URL before it was disabled, the response will still be collected and recorded.

Step 4. Set up responses limit

You can set a response limit for your survey. We will automatically stop the survey when this response limit is reached.

When the periodical Limit of responses within a period is reached, the survey will change its status to Paused with an indication on when it will be reactivated.

❗️If you would like to reactivate it earlier, you need to increase the Limit of responses within a period and enable the survey after that. If you don't enable a survey, it will not be activated automatically when the Limit of responses within a period is increased, you need to enable it on your own.

❗️There can be a delay of up to 10 minutes for the survey to be disabled when the responses limit is reached.

If you don't want to have any limits, disable this feature.

Step 5. Set up the end date

You can stop your survey on a specific date as well. We will stop your survey on the selected day at 0:00 GMT.
