Create Survey provides users with a helpful tool to build and manage online surveys. The application provides the user with many question type options, including open ended questions and a variety of multiple choice types. The user can also request specific dates (such as a date of birth), provide a place for text comments as well as an “other, please specify” option. The user can alter the raw HTML of their Create Survey questionnaires to customize the way their survey looks to the person taking it. Survey takers can attach files along with their responses. Survey cloning makes it easy for users to re-use surveys while branching adds intelligence by selecting different questions based on responses. Surveys can be further customized with a logo and images.Show more screenshots »
Create Survey was founded in 1999. The application was intended to provide users with an advanced survey service that featured a convenient interface that required little to no experience. The application belongs to Imposant, formerly TB Labs LLC. The current version of Create Survey is still improving, with mention of Java Script formatting capabilities being a planned addition in the near future. Today, many users access Create Survey to build functional, simple surveys that come with 24 hour email support and a number of customization options.
Survey creation applications are by far not new on the internet. Many websites offer simple forms that allow users to create basic surveys. Many of these are limited in terms of customization. Create Survey has expanded on that concept by presenting users with a long list of features that permit them to construct a survey that meets their individual requirements. The user can choose from a variety of response types, including text fields and drop down boxes. The application also leaves room for visual enhancements like color changes and the addition of an image or logo.
On first glance, Create Survey does not seem to offer the same elegance of other web based applications. The site utilizes refreshingly bright colors and a white background that seems to help keep the design anchored. The user interface is very clean, with no clutter and light backgrounds that make text easy to read. Overall, the application offers a good combination of utility and a hint of colorful personality. Users who are interested in a practical survey solution may find Create Survey more appealing than those who are in it for the looks.
A new Create Survey user can get started by clicking the red “Sign Up” link tucked into the upper, right hand corner of the homepage. The registration form will appear on the following page and ask the user for an email address and password. The user’s email address will be their username. The user must also choose their desired account type before clicking the grey “Register” button at the bottom of the form. After submitting the form, the user is logged in automatically and taken to the account dashboard where they can begin creating a new survey.
Create Survey provides users with four membership options. The first is a Lite plan which costs approximately $15 per month and includes access for one user, up to five surveys (per account), 500 responses per survey, secure access, survey templates, the ability to copy old surveys, advanced formatting features, online graphic reports and custom thank you pages. The Standard plan costs around $50 per month and includes up to 10 surveys, 1,000 responses per survey, text comments, HTML code features, 3D matrix options, multiple page surveys and the ability to add images and videos to surveys. The Pro plan costs around $100 per month and includes unlimited surveys, unlimited responses and 24 hour phone support. A Corporate plan is available and must be purchased for one full year for around $4,500 total. This membership includes access for up to 20 users.
CreateSurvey.com is a helpful tool for users who want a practical way to gather information. The application is easy to use, so programming knowledge is not required. The user can customize the look of their survey and choose from a number of different response options. The application gets a little pricy above the five survey mark, so small businesses and individuals may be put off if they require more than five surveys.
