With Survicate, you can share your survey with the customers via a QR code anywhere you'd like. This way, your respondents can scan it and access the survey on their devices, and you don't have to worry about sending out an email campaign to collect feedback.

In this article, you'll learn how to create a survey that can be shared via a QR code.

Create and Configure a shareable link survey

If you'd like to share your survey via a QR code, first, you'll need to create anΒ Email/Shareable linkΒ type of survey.

Pick an Email or shareable link survey from the menu. You can either set up a survey of your own (start from scratch), select a survey from our templates library (start from template), create a survey with AI, or import questions you prepared before:

Add any questions you'd like to ask your contacts and customize the survey's design and messages, or add Translations so that respondents will see the survey in the language of their browser:

To avoid duplicate responses, decide how many times each person can answer the survey in its Configure tab:

You can also set the date or the number of responses on which you'd like to stop the survey.

More features of the Configure tab are described in our article here.

In the Share tab of the survey, you can also adjust your survey's preview, description, and the name the respondents will see when the survey is opened in a browser tab:

πŸ“Œ Customizing your link preview is available on some of our plans.

Share the survey

The link you'll find in the Share tab can be used to distribute your survey:

However, if you'd like to use the QR code feature, click here:

You can download the QR code and distribute it online or print it out if you'd like to use it offline.

When a respondent scans the code, they'll be taken to a landing page on their browser, where they'll be able to answer the survey's questions.

πŸš€ All done! When the survey starts collecting responses, you'll see them both as overall results and as individual submissions in the Analyze tab.

Best practices

Use survey logic to ask the correct questions

When distributing your survey, it's important to make sure you're collecting responses from the right audience. To achieve this, you can use survey logic to show different questions to different contacts.

Customize your questions
You can use HTML tags to add pictures to your survey or to modify the text style.

Activate your survey's integrations

In the Connect tab, you can activate Email Notifications to receive an email whenever your survey receives a new response or connect with tools, such as Slack or Google Sheets, to receive survey responses outside of Survicate.
