Before you launch your survey, you’re able to test and preview your questions and any added media from a respondent’s point of view. This is especially helpful to ensure your in-step and piping logic is working correctly and to ensure any stimulus is appearing as intended.
Survey preview is available for the following survey action types: surveys, monadic tests, MaxDiff surveys, and screening surveys.
To preview a survey, simply click the Preview button in the Review page. This will open a new window with a preview of your survey. When previewing a survey, you’ll answer questions just as a respondent would, and if you try to proceed without answering a question, you will receive an error message instructing you to answer accordingly (just as a respondent would!).
On the right, you’ll see a side navigation bar with controls, question info and survey info. While this nav bar is not displayed to respondents, you can use this area to navigate through your survey and keep track of what question you are on.
Undo will ‘take back’ your most recent answer to bring you back to the previous question.
Copy Link will copy the preview URL, allowing you to share your survey preview with others to help review and test your survey. You can share this preview link with anyone, even if they don’t have access to Suzy. Your survey preview link will be accessible while your survey is live, and it will expire when your survey is complete. To access survey preview while an action is live, go to the survey details page and edit your survey. You’ll be able to see the preview button in the Review page.
Restart will bring you back to the beginning of your survey.
