Surveys allow you to ask your participants multiple questions at once. Everyone can answer the questions privately at their own pace. They’re great for quizzes, pre- and post-training assessments, questionnaires, etc. Surveys can be activated and displayed on your pollev.com response page, shared with a dedicated link, or even used during a presentation. See our article on how to activate and share surveys.
How to create a Survey
You have the ability to create a Survey in two ways. The first is starting from scratch.
Step 1: Tap the Activity button at the top left of your Activities page.
Step 2: Select Survey from the list of activities.
Step 3: Give your Survey a title.
Step 4: Use the dropdown menu to select the type of activity you want to include in your Survey.
Step 5: Continue the process, adding as many questions as you wish.
Step 6: When you're ready, click the Create button to build your Survey and save it to your account.
Edit your Survey
Step 1: Select the Survey on your Activities page.
Step 2: Select the slide you want to edit.
Step 3: Click the Edit button on the preview slide.
Step 4: When you’re finished editing, click the Save button near the bottom right.
Delete a question
The Delete button at the top right will delete a slide from your survey. Keep in mind that this is a hard delete. There is no recycle bin where deleted data can be recovered, so be certain before you delete any of your slides.
Rearrange the questions
If you decide you want to run your Survey in a different order, you can use the up and down arrow buttons on the slides to rearrange the questions in your Survey.
The Clear responses button at the bottom of the survey edit page will clear all the responses to your Survey and enable you to run the Survey another time.
Note: This clears all the responses for the entire Survey, not just the slide you’re currently focused on.
Convert to Survey
If you have individual activities that you would like to convert into a Survey activity without redoing the work, you should create a folder first to drag or move individual activities into and then convert the folder into a Survey.
Note: Multiple choice, Word Cloud, Q&A, Clickable Image, Open-ended, and Ranking are allowed to be converted or included into a Survey activity.
Step 1: Locate the folder under My Activities
Step 2: Click on the Actions button (three vertical dots) next to the folder
Step 3: Select Convert to Survey option to convert the activities' folder into a Survey
Helpful note: If you are needing to add other questions to the Survey, you can edit the Survey and select the "Add question" button.
If you are needing to edit or change the activities’ visual settings, you will need to make the changes before converting the Folder to a Survey or converting the Survey back to the Folder.
Once the individual activities are listed in the folder, you will have the option to access the Visual settings to make the desired changes.
