Can I start working on a survey and finish it later?
Yes you can, simply save the survey and it will be listed under ‘Drafts’ for when you are ready to get start again.
What can I edit after my survey has gone ‘Live’?
Once a survey has gone ‘Live’, there is a limited number of changes a user can implement. Hence, it is important that you have checked through your survey to ensure you have the correct elements you need.
However, a user can still:
- Add a question
- Re-order a question
- Change the title on questions
- Add, hide or reorder choices
You cannot make the following changes:
- Delete a question
- Delete a choice
- Change the compulsory status of a question
I want to ‘hide’ a question but cannot find how to do so?
Glow is currently working hard to make this a feature on our platform. If you do wish to hide a specific question on your survey, please contact us and we will update it for you.
If you would like to alter a specific element or something else,
please contact us for further assistance.
It is recommended that you test your survey before making it ‘Live’ to ensure that you are happy with its questions and format.
To do this, go to the ‘Surveys’ page and select which survey you wish to test by clicking the ‘Edit’ icon on the right side. Once you are in the ‘Edit Survey’ page, click on ‘Preview’ in the top right to conduct a test survey.
You will be able to tell the difference between a test survey and Live survey by the banner displayed on the top right stating ‘Preview’ – This shows that it is a test survey.
How is my survey deployed?
Glow deploys surveys through different methodologies such as stickering, panels and social media.
What is a panel?
A panel is a managed group of respondents often accessed online.
Glow has partnered with Survey Sampling International (SSI) to establish access to a larger population of participants from a wider set of demographics. This allows your business to have more targeted respondents within your category and avoids biases to then establish more reliable research and insights.
This allows you to have the opportunity to collect data from a set of participants to then develop relevant insights and make strategic decisions.
I wish to use respondents from a panel, how do I gain access to one?
Please contact us to gain access to a panel.
How do I share my survey with clients and customers?
Once you make your survey ‘Live’, you will be able to click on the ‘Share’ button at the top right which will take you to a new page.
Here you can copy a short link to the survey and share it with your clients or customers.
Alternatively, once you have exited this page, you can still share your survey by clicking on the ‘Share’ icon on the Surveys home page.
What do people get from participating in my surveys?
Glow offers rewards to people who participate in our stickering survey methodology. Each month, we draw two random winners from a list of participants who completed a Glow survey. These rewards are digital vouchers which are redeemable online.
Please ensure you enter an active email account when conducting a survey for your chance to win one of these rewards!
How long will it take for me to receive my reward for conducting a survey?
Once you have confirmed that you have received the email for winning a reward, it will take approximately 1-3 business days.
I was not able to respond back to the email in time for winning a reward, am I still eligible for it?
Unfortunately if you have not responded within 2 weeks of receiving our email, we will select another participant to claim the reward.
How do I find out who submitted a particular survey response?
We respect the anonymity of our survey respondents and hence do not collect contact details from them. To potentially find out who submitted a survey response, the respondent must have requested a follow up. Unfortunately, if a respondent does not request this, you cannot access this information
Can I delete survey responses?
Yes you can.
To do this, go to the live survey you wish to delete a response from and click to get to the Report page.
Once you are on this page, select ‘List View’ and find the response you wish to remove.
Click on that response and select ‘Delete Response’ at the top.
How do I stop survey responses?
Once live, you can stop responses by clicking on ‘Disable’ on the survey you selected.
Alternatively, you may wish to set a limit to how many respondents you want to have in your survey. Once the survey has reached that limit, it will stop taking responses.
Where do I find my results from a survey?
To view your results from surveys, simply click on the ‘View Report’ icon on the Surveys home page.
How do I analyse my data?
There are a number of ways to read your reports.
Here are some tips:
- Compare your results with your initial hypotheses
- Have a look at the numbers, what was the bigger or lowest score?
- What other numbers could potentially be relevant to your business?
- Apply filters or Compare profiles
- Try using different charts to understand your results in different ways
What is filtering?
Filtering essentially allows you to manipulate the data you have to view it in a different way.
From this, you can find different insights from the responses you have received.
Get the most out of your data by filtering – Click into a survey with existing responses and add filters in the coloumn on the left.
What is a Core User Profile?
A CUP incorporates the respondents gender, age and location. This is displayed at the top of the Report page.
What is Maps?
This feature allows you to check a respondent’s specific store that they selected or other locations with greater accuracy. Click on the map to zoom in and look at a particular region you wish to explore.
What is Word Cloud?
This feature is used specifically for questions that allow free text. It shows the main words used by your respondents which can imply significant elements about your product or brand.
What is a Net Promoter Score (NPS)?
A NPS is essentially a measurement of customer satisfaction by asking a single question such as ‘How is it likely that you would recommend our product to a family/friend?’.
This will allow you to see which respondents may potentially be a promoter or detractor. Promoters generally score 9-10 and detractors score between 0-6. We do not tend to consider passives who score 7-8.
I want to know more information about a particular product, brand or consumer.
How can I conduct surveys to achieve this?
Glow offers various services to help guide you towards building the best research projects so you can find better insights for your business. Don’t hesitate to contact us, we want to help you get the best results!
How do I export my survey results?
To export your data from a survey into a report, click on the survey you wish to extract information from.
Once you are on the survey’s reporting page, click ‘Export CSV’ at the top right to download your information.
Can I share my survey results with someone else?
To share your results with another person, you will need to add them as a user to your account. Please refer above to Account Management & Setup on how to do this.
Alternatively, you can download your report as a CSV file and send it to them.
Awesome! We always appreciate the participants who take part in our surveys. Keep an eye on our website and social media platforms to be updated on when a survey is posted.
