Share survey results with linkShare survey results publicly using a link

This method of sharing the results is especially useful if you want to share your collected data after your research ends, either on its own or along with a report. This is also a perfect feature for public polls and questionnaires, such as predictions for sports and games, political surveys for elections, or anything that has to do with public opinion.

The biggest advantage of sharing your survey data with using this method is that you do not have to keep the recipients up-to-date with latest changes in the statistics. Because you are sending them to a Live Analytics page, they will be able to see the survey results in real-time. Let’s say you send this link to your client or supervisor, and they can just keep themselves up to date with latest changes. It is an amazing feature and saves lots of time for you and for them.

PrivacyWhat about privacy of my respondents?

For SurveyLegend, privacy and security of surveyors and respondents is always the first priority. So we have have made sure to protect your respondents’ personally identifiable data, when you share the survey results publicly. That’s why we call this feature “Public Results”.

Therefore to protect personally identifiable information of your respondents, SurveyLegend removes all answers that users type manually; and the displays rest of the questions in the Public Results page. The reason behind this is that users might write their names, addresses, phone numbers, emails, etc… and we/you cannot publish such information online for eveyone.

The only text input that is shown in the Public Results is the text that respondents write in “other” choice of Single Selection or Multiple selection. Because this naturally will not include any personally identifiable information.

Feature OFFCan I turn this feature off again?

Yes, you can easily do it. Just go to the Configure step that survey or click on Share Data button again and trun these features off.
