Sending Reminder and Thank You Emails
After sending an Email Invitation, you can follow up with contacts (also called recipients) to remind them to take your survey or thank them for taking it. You can choose who receives a follow-up email based on their response status.
Manage your follow-up messages from the Overview tab of the collector.
Send a Reminder Email
Reminder emails let you nudge the people who haven't completed your survey, so you can get more responses.
Automated reminder email: Send a reminder a certain number of hours or days after the first invitation is sent (not to be confused with the number of hours or days after you set up the reminder). If you invite more people later, they'll also get this reminder email.
One-off reminder email: Send a reminder email now, or schedule it for a specific date and time. If you invite more people later, you'll have to manually send another reminder email.
Automated Reminder Emails
To set up an automated reminder email:
We send the automated reminder email at the same time that the original invitation was sent out—it's not possible to specify a different time.
Automated reminders are associated with the collector rather than an invitation—if you sent multiple invitations or invite more people later, they’ll also get this reminder email.
You can send one automated reminder email per collector. But, recipients who already received a one-off reminder will be automatically excluded from the automated reminder.
One-off Reminder Emails
To send a one-off reminder email:
You can send as many one-off reminders as you want per collector.
Send a Thank You Email
Thank people for taking the time to complete your survey.
Automated thank you email: Trigger an automatic thank you email every time someone completes your survey. If you invite more people to take your survey, they'll also get this thank you email.
One-off thank you email: Send a one-time thank you email now, or schedule it for a specific date and time.
Automated Thank You Emails
To set up an automated thank you email:
You can only set up one automated thank you email per collector. Automated thank you emails are sent within the next half hour mark after a recipient responds to the survey.
TIP! To automate a thank you email to send when someone completes your survey, the toggle must be on.
One-off Thank You Emails
To send a one-off thank you email:
While you can send as many one-off thank you emails as you want per collector, a recipient can only receive a single thank you email. If you add a recipient who's already received a thank you, they're automatically removed from the message.
Manage Follow-up Emails
The Follow-up Emails section of the collector Overview tab keeps track of the automated emails you've set up.
If there are no scheduled follow up messages or you see that a message is Currently disabled, it means the automated message is toggled off. You can turn on, edit, or delete emails by clicking the . to the right of the message.
If you invite more recipients to take your survey, the automated follow-up emails apply to the extra people you just invited. If you don’t want the extra recipients to receive follow-up emails, edit or delete the existing automated emails.
