How to Build Your Survey
The automated survey software
helps you build your survey in just
three steps. After logging in to QuestionPro.
Your Survey: each survey must have an identifying name by which it can be
located and accessed.
Your Survey: your survey can be created
(a) by writing and entering
your own questions one at a time,
(b) by loading a complete
survey template from the template library and then editing to meet your
(c) by loading individual questions from the template library
and then editing to meet your needs, or
(d) by a combination of
a,b,c... write a few questions yourself, add from the library, etc.
