You can also use kiosk mode in our iOS or Android app, to set up a survey taking station using a mobile device.

How can I track or share my responses using SurveyMonkey?

SurveyMonkey offers a number of ways to track survey respondents and when you send your survey via email invitation, each recipient receives a unique survey link that ties their survey response to their email address, which you can see when analyzing your results. SurveyMonkey also offers Platinum customers the ability to add custom variables to survey URLs.

Survey Alerts email you a daily overview of your survey responses. We don’t send individual email notifications to you or to respondents after every survey is completed. To be notified each time you get a response, you can use SurveyMonkey’s Integration with Zapier or use SurveyMonkey’s API to set up webhooks.

You can share reports online through a public or password protected link and export your responses into a variety of formats: PDF, XLS, CSV, and SPSS. SurveyMonkey also has a number of partner Integrations that allow you to analyze and visualize your survey responses.

SurveyMonkey doesn’t support vanity URLs or custom subdomains for individual accounts at this time.
