One of the most important aspects we think of when we develop Responster is how we can save our users time when they work with surveys. Last week we shared with you how we want to make it easier for our users to understand collected data using sources. You can read this post here. In today’s post we want to introduce something we call push surveys. With push surveys our users easily publish new surveys to their iPads remotely. Let’s go through how it works!
1. Log in to your Responster account.
2. Create a new survey. We’ve covered how to create beautiful surveys here if you need some advice.
3. Create a source that your iPad can connect to.
4. Go to the Devices tab and find your iPad. In order for push surveys to work your iPad needs to be connected to the Internet. The status “Collecting” in the picture below indicated this.
3. Change to your new survey and choose the appropriate source for your iPad to connect to.
4. Watch how your new survey is pushed to the device (assuming you can see the device). This should look as shown in the GIF-image below.
With push surveys it’s really easy to manage many iPads without being close to them. If you’re running a chain of stores you can push new surveys to all the iPads found in the stores without having to do it manually on each iPad.
Another nice feature with push surveys is that it also works when you update currently displayed surveys. Adding or removing questions or changing the survey design is updated immediately. This means that you never have to feel that the surveys you create are cut in stone. Instead, you can experiment with both the survey’s questions and its design.
The possibilities with push surveys doesn’t stop here, really. Let’s give an example from one of our most dedicated users that use Responster to collect employee feedback. Every day the company change the image on the start screen to display employee’s found in the offices all over the country. This way the employees in the other offices can feel closer to their colleagues although not working at the same location. We love this new way of using the feature!
I’d love hearing your experience working with push surveys. Maybe you have found some other ways of using it than presented in this post?
