Under the Design Survey tab, you can add questions, pages, and additional content to your survey from the BUILDER section of the left sidebar.

Simply drag and drop any of the following elements directly onto your survey, or click to add them to the end of the survey.


Questions are used to collect data from your respondents. When you add a question, the editing options will open automatically, allowing you to change the question text and answer choices, change the question settings, or add logic. Once you save your changes, you can click the question at any time to edit it again.

Even if you're starting from a template, you can still add your own questions to the survey to make it your own.

You can use pages in your survey to help organize and break up a long list of questions. This makes it easier for your respondents to take the survey, which means more accurate data for you.
