About Survey Options
Survey Options is where you go to change many general survey settings, such as the survey expiration date or the message that will appear to participants when they finish the survey.
To access these settings, click Survey Options in the Survey tab.
Survey Options is divided into six sections, as described below.
Survey Experience includes options that will directly impact the participant’s experience, such as whether or not a back button will be included and how long participants have to return and finish the survey at a later date if they don’t finish in one sitting. In 360, it functions similar to how it does in the Survey Platform.
For details on other Survey Experience functionality, visit the Survey Experience support page to learn more.
Survey Protection helps you ensure that only the appropriate people take your survey, and how long they can do so.
HTTP Referer Verification
Using the HTTP Referer Verification option, you can specify the URL your participants must come from in order to access your survey. To specify the website, select HTTP Referer Verification and enter your desired URL into the field.
Search engines work by creating what is called an index, or a map of all pages on the internet so they can be searched quickly. With the Prevent Indexing option, you can keep search engines from finding your survey and presenting it in their search results.
Survey Expiration limits when your survey is available. It works exactly the same in 360 as it does in the Survey Platform. Navigate to the Survey Platform’s Survey Protection support page to learn more.
Survey Termination contains options for controlling the survey ending experience. From here, you can choose different endings, such as redirecting participants to a specific website or displaying a custom message.
Changing the End of Survey Message
By default, each participant sees the following message upon successful survey completion: “We thank you for your time spent taking this survey. Your response has been recorded.” However, you can create a custom message to tailor the survey completion experience to your participants.
Show Response Summary
Rather than showing participants a message, you can automatically redirect them to a summary of their responses. You can do this by selecting Show Response summary.
This response summary can be downloaded by the participant as a PDF.
Redirecting Participants to a URL
In some cases, you may want to ensure participants make it back to your website or another web page at the end of the survey, rather than simply showing them a message. You can use the Redirect to a full URL option to accomplish this. As soon as a participant clicks the submit button in the survey, they’ll automatically be redirected to your chosen site.
To use this option, simply paste your URL into the Redirect field and then save your Survey Options.
Partial Completion lets you specify how long a participant can leave an unfinished survey before that survey is automatically closed out. It also determines what happens when you close your responses in progress.
Partial Completion works similarly in 360 as it does in the Survey Platform. Therefore, please visit the Survey Platform pages listed below for more information on:
