How do I create a survey?
To create a survey, you need to establish your goals and the audience you are targeting, create a list of questions that will provide relevant responses and then organise the distribution of the survey to your target audience.
There are three different ways to get started:
How can I send a survey?
There are several different ways you can distribute your survey to respondents. Including embeding on a website, bulk email, sms messages and in person via offline mode. Choosing the method of distribution is important, as audience response rates can vary considerably depending on the how and when they first encounter the survey.
See the help guide: Ways to send your survey
How do I use skip logic?
Adding skip Logic (sometimes referred to as "branching") to survey questions allows you to take your respondents through a certain path, depending on the answers they give to a previous question. For example, you might want to ask the respondent if they own a car. If they answer ‘yes’, you could ask what type of car. If they answer ‘no’, you could skip to the next set of questions.
See the help guide: Adding skip logic to your survey
How do I score my survey questions?
Survey scoring allows you to set a numerical value for each answer and summarise the mean values of multiple responses. For example, when measuring satisfaction you can calculate the overall negative or positive ratings across the individual response as well as for all responses to that survey.
See the help guide: Scoring survey questions
How do I make an anonymous survey?
Surveys can be set to be anonymised within the interface. This will mean that the IP address (and email address, for surveys distributed via email) of the respondent will not be recorded. Reassuring your respondents their answers are anonymous when dealing the sensitive information can greatly improve response rates.
See the help guide: How to make your survey responses anonymous
What security measures are in place?
Respondents' access to surveys can be controlled by password and username protection. This feature ensures only a certain group of individuals chosen by you, the Administrator, are able to take the survey.
Our firewall is set up as a separate machine that acts as a gateway for access to all other servers in our system. This firewall is designed to prevent hackers from entering the system and searching files and information. The firewall acts as a barrier so that we only have a single point of entry to our system, which is through the web browser. All of our internal databases and applications are shielded from any access outside the firewall.
SmartSurvey is tested and certified daily to pass the McAfee Secure Security Scan. To help address concerns about hacker access to confidential data, the "live" McAfee Secure mark appears only when a website meets the McAfee Secure standards.
During transit from client to server, data is encrypted with TLS. We use Microsoft SQL Server Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) to encrypt data at rest using AES encryption algorithm.
