Custom Survey Fields

In addition to the variety of preexisting fields designed to capture demographic information, you can also create custom fields to ask any question you'd like.

Text Inputs allow a consumer to enter in any text that they want with the onscreen keyboard

Single Select fields give participants several options defined by you. Users can select only one option.

Multi Select are multiple choice entries where the participant chooses between several options defined by you. Users can select up to the maximum number of selections configured by you (By default there is no defined maximum, meaning the participant can select up to all options). Note that the maximum selections (if you wish to set a maximum) must be specified each time the survey field is added to your experience.

Checkboxes are simple Yes/No questions.

After you have chosen the type of custom survey field you want to create, the Add Survey Item dialogue pops up.


Survey items are saved by unique keys that differentiate one survey item from another. In a participant's data, each survey item appears in a separate column and every new survey item creates a new column. Since creating many unique survey items can quickly create many columns, it is encouraged to reuse survey items whenever possible. For this reason, all survey items in a brand are accessible to each of its campaigns. The "Use Existing Question" Dropdown displays all relevant survey items within the brand that one can use.

Additionally, survey items are persistent and once created, if you edit a survey item, you edit it in all the places it is used. While cosmetic details like the language can be changed, things like the number of options cannot be. This is because Participants could contain data from a survey item which gets changed later, which could compromise the quality of your participant data.
