Survey Templates

As a subset of online forms, surveys share some common features with other form types. Input items like radio buttons, dropdown lists, and checkboxes allow visitors to choose an answer. Other input items collect text, uploaded files, and even signatures for awesome survey potential.

Items and features developed specifically for surveys include:

Matrix items
The Matrix items display radio buttons, dropdowns, checkboxes, or long and short answer items in a table. Many form owners find the table display effective for collecting many answers in a small area. An example is a Likert scale, which lets users choose from a range of answers on a scale.

Multi Scale
Matrix items with more than one category fall under the Multi-scale items. These complex items let form owners ask the same question for more than one ‘scale’, or category.

Rating items let form owners ask for a rating that adds up to a preset amount, which is typically ‘100’. The item can use a custom amount to collect other ranges, like 7 for days of the week or 24 for hours in a day.

Ranking items are like Rating items, but ask for a position rank instead of rating quantity. An example would be to rank 5 items by preference, then the item validates the answers. If it finds duplicates or skipped numbers, it displays an error.

The Scoring features let form owners assign scores to answers for quantifying or weighting them. An easy example of how it’s used would be the Likert scale again. Setting the low answer to “1” and the high answer to “10”, the results would quickly show the answers with the highest scores as the most popular.
