Hello all updated legends!
As you may have noticed, we have just added several professional features to all free and paid accounts. Here is a summary of the latest advances since our last update. Keep reading, and please, spread the love:
Sharing survey results in real-time
Yo! Stop wasting time exporting your survey results and sending them to your boss, colleagues, or clients! It’s so much unnecessary work, isn’t it?
From now on, you have the power to let them instantly see and analyse the gathered survey data, visualized beautifully in real time!
You can do this in three unique ways, and you have full power to control it:
1: Instantly when a survey is completed
This is a very popular classic feature, usually used for online polls. You have for sure seen it, specially for questions such as “Which team wins the final match World Cup this year?”, or “Which candidate will be president of your country?”.
Participants can directly see your collected data after the survey ends. This enables them to see how others think about the same subject; and also motivates them to share the survey with others. Learn more…
2: Using a public link
This one enables you to send your survey results to 3rd parties, so they can review it at any time. Visitors will see your Learn more…but with no personally-identifiable-data from your participants.
3: Using a private link
And finally, this feature empowers you to send an exact copy of your Live Analytics to parties you totally trust. They can see everything you see, and if you give them the permissions, can even export the raw data whever they want. Learn more…
This has definitely been one of our biggest features so far! To make it possible, we have re-engineered how data is saved on and retrieved from our servers. Our main concern has been you and your respondent’s privacy and security. Make sure to read about these new features and learn howsharing real-time survey data can be used creatively.
Liker Scale questions
Now you can easily add Liker Scale questions to your awesome online surveys. Our brand new Likert Scale makes it extremely simple to create mobile-friendly scaled survey questions, with large quantity of Likert Items and Selection Choices. We have redesigned their conventional look and how respondents interact with them, and solved many problems the old ones have.
As you know, traditional Liker Scale questions visually look like confusing tables, which make them hard to understand. For average survey participants, the tables may look like small IQ tests, and it takes a while before they figure out how to answer these type of questions.
Additionally, due to their visual appearance, traditional Likert Scale questions are very limited. Surveyors could not provide as many “Likert Items” as they liked, because there is simply no space for many items in a table. Moreover, it was impossible to have those large tables presented in a good way on mobile phones, and be able to answer the questions shown.
Yeah you know we’re innovative and think for future, so we redesigned Liker Scale questions from scratch. Now, you can ask for people’s opinions about many “Likert Items” in one question, your respondents can understand them, answer them, and interact with the questions with ease; even on the small screens of mobile devices.
It sounds interesting, doesn’t it? So, go ahead and read more about our user-friendly Liker Scale questions here.
Limiting number of participations in surveys
Limiting number of participations in the same survey can help gathering quality data. With SurveyLegend you can limit respondents to take the same survey only once. So, as soon as your respondents “submit” their answers, they will not be able to retake the survey on the same web-browser. By default this feature is ON, so all your old and new surveys are automatically protected against multiple participations.
If you desire, it’s very easy to turn this feature OFF for any survey. Read more about limiting number of participations in surveys and learn where, how and why you would need to use it.
From now on, you can smartly use the power of your respondents, they can now share your surveys with their friends. We have made it “as easy as a single click”, for your respondents and their friends to post your surveys, or your public survey results on their social media. This can help you make your surveys viral, and collect more precious data. Learn more about how visitors can promote your surveys and make sure to maximize your data collection.
