In the “SURVEYS” menu, click on “Survey Editor.”
On the “Survey Editor” screen, the first section you will see is “Fixed Question” Every Post-Stay survey has a set of fixed questions. You cannot edit or remove fixed questions, but custom questions can be added, removed, or edited at any time. You may assign department to fixed questions and make them required or “not applicable”
You can edit and create questions and Topics in the CUSTOM QUESTIONS section.
Surveys questions are organized by topic. To create a topic, scroll to the bottom of your page. Click and drag the button 'DRAG TO ADD TOPIC' to any place in your survey.
A new window will open. Enter the text you want your guests to see for that topic. Then choose and type a name for your topic; this will be an internal name used on your reports.
You can click and drag your topic to change its position at any time.
To edit or delete a topic, click on “Edit.” You will only see the “Delete” option if there is no question under that topic. Note about deleting Topics: You cannot delete a topic if there have ever been any questions answered under the topic. This is for historical reporting purposes.
Topics should be viewed as report headers as all questions that roll up under a topic will fall under that topic in your results data.
