Add a YouTube Video to Any Question in Survey Analytics

Sometimes you want to go beyond a normal, dry survey question in your questionnaire. Including a video in your questionnaire is a great way to get your respondents engaged and to elicit rich feedback.

With Survey Analytics it couldn't be easier to add a YouTube video to your survey question. And the really cool thing is you can add a YouTube video to any type of question that Survey Analytics offers!



All you have to do to add a YouTube video is select "Display Settings" (see above) when editing your questionnaire. There is a place to insert a YouTube video ID. All you have to do to get the YouTube video ID is look at the URL of the YouTube video, copy it, and paste it into the YouTube video ID box in the Display Settings screen.

That's it! Then the YouTube video "automagically" appears as part of your question!

Here is a brief YouTube video tutorial I made up showing you how this process works:

I hope you enjoy rocking your surveys out with lots of YouTube videos!

Top 5 Infographics of the Week: Cyber Security

Earlier this week, we experienced a power outage with our data center at Internap. During this short period of time, our customers were unable to access the site. Luckily, it didn't last long and we are back up and running now thanks to our dedicated support team that responded quickly and worked diligently.

Cyber security is, and always has been, a very important issue for us as we continue to grow and meet the demands of a technology-driven society. Nothing is more paramount than the safety of your valuable data. And apparently we weren't the only ones affected, as LinkedIn was experiencing difficulties on the same day and Internap had 3 massive outages earlier this year. Check out these infographics with stats on the importance of cyber security and the impact it can have on small-medium sized businesses.

Top 5 Infographics of the Week: Internet of Things

In 2008, the number of things connected to the internet exceeded the number of people on Earth. By 2050, we are expected to surpass 50 million different devices connected to the internet. And we're not just talking smartphones and tablets - we mean everything. Wearable tech, household appliances, smart homes, public transportation, hospitals and even cattle have all been using sensors to transmit data automatically. It is an exciting yet scary time to be alive. The various interactions between these different entities are opening up doors for more apps, more software and more auxiliary services.
