Creating Surveys from Templates

You can create a survey from a SurveyMonkey template to save time and be sure that you're asking balanced survey questions that get you the data you need. The questions used in these pre-made surveys are written to reduce bias and utilize best practices for data collection.

You can still customize the survey and questions when starting from a template—feel free to add or edit questions, delete questions, and change the look and feel of your survey before sending it to respondents.

SurveyMonkey Templates

To create a survey from a SurveyMonkey template:

  1. Click + Create Survey in the upper-right corner of your account.
  2. Scroll down the page and click ALL TEMPLATES.
  3. Choose a category from the list on the left to browse available templates, or search templates by keyword.
  4. Click on any template to see a preview of the survey questions and a quick overview of the survey.
  5. When you find a template you want to use, click Use this template at the bottom of the preview.
  6. Edit the survey however you'd like.

Paid Templates

Some templates are only available on paid plans. For example, many templates that have more than 10 questions require a paid plan to add them. Some templates with more than 10 questions are available on all plans, but you'll need a paid plan in order to edit the questions in the template.

Benchmarkable Templates

When you browse through templates, the benchmark icon indicates whether a question or template is benchmarkable.

Template List

The best place to browse and preview our full selection of templates is in your account by following the steps above. Or you can view a list of templates, but this page isn't as up-to-date as what you see in your account.

Team Templates

If you're a Primary Admin or Admin of a team, you can create your own templates that anyone in your team can use in your team's Library.

If you're part of a team, you can easily create a new survey from a team template from the Library or when creating a survey.
