Different ways of collecting survey responses

After you have finished editing your survey and are ready to let it go out into the world, you will need a way to share it with the people you would like to participate. We offer some really fast and easy ways for you to do this with our “Survey Collectors”.

Available Collectors

We have a range of Survey Collectors to choose from, each designed to help you to share your survey in a particular way.

Common Collector Settings

Each collector type mostly shares the same default settings. These settings can determine how you would like your participants to interact with your survey and how the response data is collected. The common settings are each explained in more detail below:

Option Description Example Value
Status This is the main “power switch” for your collector. By default it will be set to “Active”, however, when set to “Closed” the survey associated with the collector will no longer be able to collect any responses. Participants who view a survey with a closed collector will be shown a message explaining that the survey has now been closed. Active
Collector Name Here you can set a useful name for your collector. It can be anything you would like. Setting a meaningful name on a collector is great when you have multiple collectors attached to a survey and you want to filter your results by collector. “Survey Link 1”
Multiple Participation This is a drop-down of options that will allow you to set if you would like to have participants complete your survey only once or have the ability to retake it multiple times.  Once per computer
