Naming Your Survey

Naming your survey is a very simple task, but we have some suggestions on how you can optimize it within QuickSurveys.

When you are building your survey, there are two places to fill in a survey name: Survey Title and Internal Survey Name. Let’s go through each one:

The Survey Title is the one that will be seen by respondents.

As a general rule, we recommend you keep the main survey title to a few words, and very generic. If you are running a survey about avocados, and only wish to have those who like avocados take this survey, you will not want to give away the subject of the survey in the title. This creates a bias and can invite unwanted or false responses. Instead, we recommend you name the survey “Food”. You can use a filter when building your questionnaire to screen out those who don’t like avocados.

The internal survey name is useful for getting organized. You can fill in this section with anything because the respondents will not see this. For example, maybe you want to run the same survey named “Food”, with 6 different audiences. You can use the internal survey name feature to get more detailed and organized so you can spot the differences easier:

  • Food_Survey_1_Women18-25
  • Food_Survey_1_Women26-45
  • Food_Survey_1_Women55+
  • Food_Survey_1_Men18-25
  • Food_Survey_1_Men26-45
  • Food_Survey_1_Men55+

The Internal Survey Name

Do you have surveys in your QuickSurveys account that have similar titles, generic titles (Lifestyle, Entertainment, Travel) or maybe titles in other languages? This can understandably make it difficult for you to easily distinguish the details of each survey.

For this reason, QuickSurveys offers the internal name feature, created so you can give you surveys a more descriptive label! Internal names are visible only to you through your survey management page and can be modified at any time.

Here’s where the internal name is located and how it can be modified: 

To add an internal name to a new survey…

1. Select CREATE in the upper right corner, then go ahead and enter your Survey Title on the Define page (shown below). (For existing surveys, skip to Step 2)

2. Once a title is entered, you’ll notice that same title populated under the Survey Title field next to Your survey’s internal name will be: ______ (shown below). To modify this, click the Edit button and enter your desired internal name, then click outside of the box to commit the new name.
