All about previewing

Before you publish, preview!

Previewing lets you double-check your survey before publishing and sending it to your recipients. Importantly, previewing doesn’t capture data or increase your response count — so preview all you like! 

There are other benefits too:

1 The preview is an accurate recreation of what your survey takers will experience
2 Switch smoothly between desktop and mobile views
3 Tastefully touch-up your survey's look and feel → with a click of the paintbrush icon

Previewing a Published survey

When you open a Published survey, you’ll be taken to your 'Results' page — so there’s an extra step required to open the Preview option. There are also limitations on what you can change if you catch a mistake — as explained in Editing Published (vs. Unpublished) surveys.

To preview a Published survey:

1
Click on the survey's card from the Surveys index
2
Click the Edit survey button on the 'Results' page
3
Click the Preview button
4
Preview as explained above → in the Unpublished section
5
Click ← Back to editing to close the preview

Changing your survey's branding as you preview

To customize your survey's look and feel as you preview:

1
Open your survey editing page
2
Click Preview
3
Click the paintbrush icon → and change the logo, buttons, and color value
4
Save your changes

Branding applies globally

Branding applies to all of the surveys in your account, so if you make a change to one survey, all surveys will be updated to reflect your brand-new look.
