Anonymous Responses

The Anonymous Responses collector option enables you to track (or not to track) and store identifiable respondent information in survey results.

Multiple Responses

Multiple Responses lets participants take your survey more than once from the same browser. This is practical if you expect participants to take your survey on a shared device.

Manage Email Contacts

It's always important to pay close attention to your email contact list: constantly add new names, edit or delete existing ones. There are two available options: one is from an email collector, another is from the "Survey Tools" page.

White Label Surveys

The White Label options enable you to remove SurveyOL branding, use the domain, and redirect people to your website or other places online after they complete your survey.

Thank You Emails

You can automatically send thank you emails or manually send them to respondents who complete your survey. Invitations with sent thank you emails will come with a "Thanked" flag aside the email address.


You have the option to set up automated reminders or manually send reminders to those recipients who have not yet responded to your survey.

Export, Print & Import Surveys

You can export your survey and print it in PDF format. You can also export or import your survey at a later time when needed.
