Enabling instant survey notifications, SurveyLegend notifies you by email as soon as someone finishes your questionnaire. This feature is very powerful and optimized for use in surveys, specially online forms that are embedded in your web-page, blog or social media.
Often surveys that are used for direct communication with participants, or when you want to take action based on a response to a survey right away. For example, when using surveys and forms for support, customer feedback, lead generation, competitions, sales, contact forms and more… where each particular response is important and actionable.
Surveys that are expected to get many responses during a short time, or where the aggregate and summary data is more important than a specific response should not use this feature, as it will most likely just flood your email inbox.
Summary notifications are sent out periodically to notify that your surveys are getting responses. This feature is enabled by default for all surveys. So don’t worry, we will always keep you up-to-date with the latest and greatest ; ). Read more about Survey Summary Notifications
