We have specialized analysis features to help you understand your customer's habits better. If you want to use these features, there are certain things to keep in mind when designing your survey.

A chart with data points ranked based on a scale of importance.

Key Drivers allow you to choose an outcome metric and then see which attitudes and behaviors of your customers have the highest correlation with that outcome.

For example, you could choose the outcome metric of purchase intent then see data points about what drives people to purchase.

The only question type compatible with Key Drivers is the Multiple Choice question. How you set it up depends on what you want to analyze:

  • Outcome metrics use a multiple choice question with 2-7 answer choices.
  • Data points are created from multiple choice questions with the same number of answer choices as the outcome metric.

  • Example

When you're ready to Analyze your data:

  1. Go to the Analyze section of your project.
  2. Click the dropdown menu on the right side of the page and select Key Drivers.
  3. Click the blue text above the chart to choose your settings.
  4. Choose your outcome variable from the dropdown and preferred chart scale.
  5. Click Save.
  6. To see our recommendations based on this outcome metric, click the Insights icon above the chart.
