The Short link gives you a link that is shorter and faster to type, useful for times when the respondent has to type the link on their smartphone or tablet.

1.2 Share QR code

Another way to distribute your survey is by downloading the QR code, which you can then print out, put it on flyers, post it on social media or your website.
