Step 2: Form Settings

  • CREATE NEW OR CHOOSE EXISTING: You can create a new template or use an existing survey template.

Select the product this survey applies to and how many hours/days/weeks/months it should get sent based on a purchase/refund/cancellation.

  • CONFIRMATION MESSAGE: The message that shows to the customer after they complete the survey. 

  • SHOW PROGRESS BAR AT THE BOTTOM OF FORM PAGES: This allows you to enable a progress bar for customers. 
  • ONLY ALLOW ONE RESPONSE PER PERSON: Will block duplicate surveys from the same customer email.
  • SHOW LINK TO SUBMIT ANOTHER RESPONSE: Allows the customer to submit more than one response.
