Intro screen

The intro screen is the first page your respondents will see when they're taking your questionnaire. When you're sending out a questionnaire, you'll want to give your respondents a bit of information before they start and this is where you can do it.


Tell your respondents what the questionnaire is about, what the results will be used for, which prize they can win, or just welcome your respondents and tell them how much time the questionnaire will take. Describing the context (and especially announcing a prize) increases engagement (they know what they're participating in).

This guide will teach you:

  1. Choose to show the Intro screen
  2. Intro text and Start button
  3. Add Intro fields
  4. Multiple languages

1. Choose to show the Intro screen

Before getting into the details of what will be shown on your first page, you have to decide whether you want to show it at all or jump straight to your questions. Toggle the Active button to make it visible or hidden.

2. Intro text and Start button

Change the text if you want in the text box circled below. You can also edit the text of the Start button, for example "Let's go", "Let's begin", or anything else that suits your survey tone of voice.

You can use the the rich text editor to make your text bold, bigger, change the color, or use variables to address respondents by name.

3. Add Intro fields

Here you can add Intro fields, which are mostly used to collect demographic data such as name, email, job title, etc. If you choose to add these fields, this form will appear on the first page containing all the data, so it will save time and you will not need to create a separate question for each item.

This is how this feature will look like:

Click Add a field and choose what type of field you want to add.

This is also useful when you want to view the results by Responses. You will get a clear overview of the respondent's answers to the Intro fields, and you can choose to filter the results by any of those fields.

Another really great use of this feature is that you can send respondents a personalized link that has the fields already completed with the details of the respondents, so they do not have to fill in the information themselves - they'll appreciate the time-saving! 

4. Multiple Languages

If you’re offering your survey in multiple languages, the first page that your respondents will see is the language choice page. Here is where they can choose their survey language. It can look like this:

Once they’ve chosen their language, the Intro page you’ve set up will be displayed next, in their chosen language. To learn how to set up the language choice page and how to translate every part of your survey, read the Multiple Languages guide.

What's next?

  • Edit Design Settings to customize your survey's design to match your company colors and identity. There are loads of different features for you to play around with. Each one works independently, so choose as many or as few as you fancy to customize your design!
  • The final screen aims to give a final message to your respondents, thank them for participating, give further instructions or leave some extra information. This the also the page where you can add your social media icons to enable your respondents to like or share your survey, your Facebook page or website.
  • CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) is a computer language used to adjust the presentation of a HTML or XML document. Adding Custom CSS allows you to change many elements of your design (e.g., make answers larger, make buttons out of links, etc.) that are not included in the Design tab.
