Choose How Respondents Interact with Your Survey

On the Style tab under Layout you can choose both a Desktop Interaction and a Mobile Interaction. Hover your mouse over each option to see each in action. Below we'll describe and demo each interaction in a survey and discuss some best practices and other considerations.



Desktop Interactions


Standard (default) - Survey respondents will experience your survey much like how it is displayed on your Build tab.

One at a Time - This desktop interaction option will display one question at a time. When the respondent submits the question it will slide to the left and the next question will slide in from the right.

Mobile Interactions


One at a Time (default) - Survey respondents will see one question at a time. When the respondent submits the question it will slide to the left and the next question will slide in from the right. Check out this survey link on a mobile device to see it in action.

Standard - Survey respondents will experience your survey much like how it is displayed on your Build tab. Check out this survey link on a mobile device to see it in action.

Not Mobile Optimized - This option will render the survey as it is designed for desktops on a mobile device.

Consider Accessibility


We recommend the Standard interaction for desktop and One at a Time for mobile as they are most accessible for screen readers. If you expect that many survey respondents will be using a screen reader, you may want to change your survey to include a single question per page. Screen readers will read the entire page and then, once the survey respondent tabs to the first field, the screen reader will enter form mode. In form mode screen reader focus on inputs and labels and will not re-read the question text. Thus, surveys with a single question per page will be easiest to navigate on a screen reader.
