Feature Spotlight: Interactive Question Types


Today's Feature Spotlight is showcasing our list of interactive question types. Interactive questions make your survey fun to take, resulting in more engaged audiences and lower drop-out rates. With our list of over 50 questions to choose from, you can always find the type of question you are looking for. Read on to see the list of interactive question types, how to set them up, and see a few examples of what they look like in the survey.


With over 50 question types available to use, there is no such thing as a boring survey. You can always find the type of question you are looking for with us. Here is a list of some of the more interactive question types: star rating, smiley face rating, drag and drop rank order, capture images, audio, and video, interactive rating scales, barcode scanning, draw signature, stopwatch/ timer question, and QR code like/dislike. This is not an exhaustive list, but it highlights some of the main ones.


Adding an interactive question to your survey is easy. Log into your Survey Analytics account and select the survey you want to edit, or create a new one. Then click "Add a Question to This Survey" and select the question that you want to add. In the example above, we are demonstrating the star rating question type.


This is how the star rating question will appear on an iPad. Survey respondents can slide their finger left and right to select the number of stars they want. They can also just touch the star as well. It's easy to add and looks much better.


Another fun and interactive question type is the map. By visually representing different countries and continents, responents can answer questions by clicking right on the map to answer. We offer maps of the UK, Australia, India, China, Brazil, Russia and Africa.


Lastly, we also offer smiley face questions! This is a fun way to gauge the respondent's attitudes towards something, such as your customer service or products. Respondents can click on the smiley face that best represents their feelings and attitudes.

In this Feature Spotlight we only went through some of the interactive question types, but there are many more to be found online. Who says surveys need to be boring, multiple choice questions one after the next? Log in and give something new a shot, it is sure to make your survey exciting to take.
