Scheduled survey status

 

New Feature

  

Scheduled - new status on the survey list.png We’ve introduced a new survey status - scheduled. It shows which surveys are planned to be published in the future. So you can easily manage and navigate through all your surveys.

What’s changed

Before the release, your scheduled surveys were displayed as disabled. With the new scheduled status, you can easily distinguish between old and planned research. When you hover over the scheduled status, you’ll also see the start date of the scheduled survey.

Why it matters

The scheduled status gives you and your team a better overview of your past, current, and future surveys. So you can improve collaboration and organize your work effortlessly.

Respondent attributes for better targeting and analysis

 

Improvement

  

Respondent attributes for better targeting and analysis.png 20 more user attributes are now available for you to use in Survicate. Attributes like name, industry, or country provide more data about your respondents. Use them as filters to break down survey results or create more precise target audiences.

What's changed

Any respondent attribute passed to Survicate can now be used for various purposes. Do you have an integration with Hubspot or Intercom? Do you collect respondent attributes with a tracking code? Now you can use them all in our tool.

What it means for you:

  • More information about respondents: With more attributes shown in respondents' profiles, you can learn who answered your survey and follow up as needed

  • Better survey results breakdown: Use respondent attributes as filters in the Analyze tab to break down your survey results by job title, industry, etc.

  • More precise custom audiences: Add respondent attributes as filters when creating custom audiences for accurate targeting

  • Better survey personalization: Add a personal touch to your messages by recalling user attributes such as first name

Redesigned and improved web and in-product surveys

 

New Feature

  

Redesigned and improved website and in-product surveys Survicate Survicate 1.png

We improved the design and functionality of Survicate's website and in-product surveys. Their new, modern look goes hand-in-hand with easy customization. So that you can create on-brand surveys faster than ever.

What's changed and why it matters

  • New modern look: Better readability, larger elements, and improved contrast make your surveys easier to answer

  • White-label surveys: Add your company logo and customize your design to create surveys that match the look of your brand

  • Flexible survey size: Web surveys now automatically adjust their size to their content, improving the display

  • Improved validation of respondents' answers: We check your respondents' answers and display an error message if they didn't fill in some survey fields correctly. E.g., "Please enter a valid email address."

How it works

All your newly created surveys have the "New light theme" set by default. You can also take advantage of the new Personalization feature. It allows you to add an avatar and write a short greeting message in the widget's header. Enable Personalization while editing your theme in the Design section.

You can change the appearance of your old surveys manually. To do so, choose the "New light theme" in the Design section of the Create tab.

The new design is accessible to all customers on all plans. Get more tips about survey customization in our Help Center.

You can now integrate Survicate with Smartlook, an analytics tool that lets you track and analyze user behavior on your website or web app. Go to the Integrations tab to connect with a single click.

What's in it for you

  • Improve audience segmentation and targeting based on customer insights

How it works

Before you start, set up web tracking in Smartlook and launch a survey with Survicate. Then:

  1. Go to the Integration tab to connect Survicate with Smartlook
  2. You'll receive survey responses as custom session events in Smartlook
  3. Watch session recordings and link them with survey responses to better understand your users' behavior

Translations: create surveys in multiple languages

 

New Feature

  

Illustration_ Translations.png

You can now translate your survey into multiple languages at once. By localizing surveys, you can reach your customers in their preferred language.

What's changed

Previously, you needed to manually create multiple language versions of a survey to get feedback from respondents around the world. Now you can automatically translate your survey into any language. You can also analyze your survey results in one place to get a global overview or filter responses by language.

Here's how it works

  1. In the Create tab, click the 'Translations' icon on the left side of your screen.
  2. Then add the languages you want to translate your survey into and choose between manual or automatic translation (Google Translation).
  3. In the next step, you can edit the translation provided by Google Translate if you want to (or add your own translation manually).
  4. Configure, connect and launch the survey as usual. Your respondents will see the survey in their browser language.
  5. Once the responses come in, you can analyze all the results in one place. Filter them by language to get a better understanding of the different markets.
